Jorge Masvidal believes that certain parts of MMA media are “sexist”. He has criticized them for overlooking women’s bare knuckle fights. ‘Gamebred’ suggested that journalists should try harder to cover the women.
In an interview with MMA Uncensored, Jorge Masvidal spoke in particular about his own MMA promotion, the Gamebred Fighting Championship. Masvidal stated:
“It’s quite interesting that a lot of MMA websites don’t cover it. But that’s because they have a personal problem with me. But they should look at the bigger picture when reporting on the advancement of women’s sports. So I’m really mad at some of these websites that don’t give it the love and sh**. Because if it was any other promoter, it would be all over these pages. But these pages are run by a lot of these guys who don’t like me personally.”
Jorge Masvidal added that there are several reasons why some of the sport’s websites don’t cover Gamebred FC events. Masvidal reiterated that women’s naked MMA fights should receive extensive media coverage.
“What the f**k is going on here? I kinda see, I don’t want to draw the line, but what’s that called… oh, sexist. Those websites are sexist, motherfucker. They are. I’m talking about on Instagram pages, websites; all these websites that are about MMA.”

Jorge Masvidal’s stardom and momentum has taken a beating lately. That’s thanks to a pair of defeats to reigning UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman.
