Jeff Molina, a UFC flyweight contender now serving a suspension, made headlines after an improperly released footage tape was posted online on Twitter and Reddit
The video has gained widespread attention, something the player would have never desired.
Following the online disclosure of a video of UFC fighter Jeff Molina engaging in oral sex with another man, Molina revealed that he is bisexual. Molina expressed his disappointment that the revelation of his sexual orientation had to be made in this manner, but he also expressed his pride in being gay and criticised the individual who posted the video.
Jeff Molina responds after leaked video tape of him giving head to Ben Davis goes viral on Twitter
After a video of Jeff having sex with another man this week was shared on social media, the UFC fighter alleges that he was prevented from coming out as bisexual in the manner he desired. The 25-year-old expressed his hurt in a tweet posted on Friday: “Not how I wanted to do this, but the chance to do it when I was ready was snatched from me.”
The player further added that he has always been in relationships with women and has repressed any sentiments he might have had while competing on the high school wrestling team, learning MMA in college, or even after fulfilling a portion of his ambition by signing up for the UFC. The UFC flyweight is now concerned about what his friends, teammates, and role models will think of him.

Is Molina the first male UFC fighter that is publicly gay?
Molina, who is currently 11-2 overall and 3-0 in the UFC, has previously shown his support for the LGBTQ+ community by wearing Pride Month shorts for his fight in June 2022. Molina claimed that he had no plans to come out during his career and preferred to be viewed as a skilled competitor rather than a “bi UFC fighter,” which is a term that is likely to be confused with “a homosexual UFC fighter.”
The UFC pro is currently suspended for his alleged involvement in a betting scheme. However, he makes history by being the first openly homosexual male fighter in the UFC after coming out.
