| Last updated
UFC fighter Jeff Molina has been forced to come out as bisexual, after a video circulated showing the 25-year-old performing a sex act on another man.
Molina - who boasts an impressive 11-2-0 record in the UFC - posted a statement to his Twitter account on Friday in which he provided clarity over the situation.
"Welp... this f***ing sucks.
"TLDR: im bi
"Not the way I wanted to do this but the chance to do it when I was ready was taken from me. I've tried to keep my dating life private from social media. I've dated girls my whole life and suppressed feelings I had throughout high school being on the wrestling team, throughout college pursuing MMA, and even after making part of the dream happen and getting into the UFC.
"I'm a pretty masculine dude and that bro-y banter and sus sense of humor has always been how I am. The thought of my buddies, teammates, and ppl I look up to looking at me different let alone treating me different for something I can't control was something I couldn't fathom.

"In a sport like this where a majority of the fans being the homophobic c***suckers they are I didn't see myself doing this during this part of my career. I wanted to be known for my skills and what I've dedicated the last 11 years of my life to and not the "bi ufc fighter" that I'm sure would just be translated to "gay UFC fighter".
"To the awful disturbed person that decided to post this ishh I hope it was worth it.
"At the end of the day I know my character, morals and who I am as a person. As much as I'm getting hated/s****ed on I'm getting an equal amount of support & it means a f**k ton.
Molina signed off his statement with a red love heart emoji and a rainbow flag emoji. The rainbow flag has been used a symbol for the LGBT community since the 1970's.
Molina hasn't fought in the UFC since picking up a split decision win against Kazhak flyweight Zhalgas Zhumagulov on June 4th, 2022.
