UFC flyweight Jeff Molina comes out as bisexual

It was surprising and shocking to many people after UFC flyweight Jeff Molina revealed via a Twitter post that he is actually bisexual. In a long address to his fans, Molina spoke honestly and openly about his sexual orientation.

In spite of knowing what kind of reactions it would cause and how difficult it would be to take such a step, Molina refused to remain silent any longer and acted as soon as possible. “TLDR: im bi,” Molina wrote on Twitter “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”.

Molina is aware of the reactions he will cause, but he doesn't want to bother with it. “I’m a pretty masculine dude and that bro-y banter and sus [sic] sense of humor has always been how I am,” Molina said.

“The thought of my buddies, teammates, and ppl [sic] I look up to looking at me differently 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.' ” However, there are many who will support him, for which Molina is grateful.

"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/shitted on I'm getting on equal amount of support and it means a fu** ton"
