Fighter pay has been a hot-button issue for some time. The UFC has claimed that the financial environment that they have cultivated for fighters far surpasses anything else in the MMA world while fighters often seem to feel as though they are paid far less than they deserve, given the nature of their profession. While anyone who gets punched and kicked for the enjoyment of others should probably be paid as much as possible, making that a reality is not as simple as writing a bigger check.
Brazil isn’t Colby Covington’s favorite place. The UFC welterweight has been vocal about his displeasure towards the country following a tumultuous recent visit during which he defeated Brazilian native Demian Maia. A post-fight speech aimed at the crowd elicited its fair share of criticism, none more than from former UFC heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum.
On the eve of UFC 218, the fighters make their final preparations in the hopes of finishing out a busy year for MMA on a high note. The featherweight title fight is on the line in the main event as Jose Aldo steps in for an injured Frankie Edgar to take on reigning champion, Max Holloway, who took the belt from Aldo earlier this year. Holloway opens this episode in a full sweat as he fine tunes his boxing.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
