Jake from Budovideos.com responds to the concerns regarding fair coverage of women's matches at major tournaments on this week's Fightworks Podcast, in an interview with Caleb. Caleb pointed out the blog post from yours-truly that raised the issue and Jake was kind enough to thank me on air.
Basically, though this is not a quote, Jake's answer was they weren't prepared with another camera to do a split screen. At the Pan there were up to 10 matches running at a time, so they had to pick. Because men and women happened at the same time, they had to go with the more popular choice, and there are more people who want to watch men do BJJ. But he agreed it was a pretty good chance that they'd show some women's matches at Mundials because there, they don't run men's and women's finals at the same time.
I want to extend my most sincere appreciation to Caleb and the Fightworks Podcast for getting an answer and to Dave and Jake of Budovideos.com for helping promote coverage of women in this beautiful sport.
If you have strong opinions about watching women's BJJ at the Mundials I encourage you to let Budovideos.com know!
