In this week's Trading Shots, MMAjunkie columnist Ben Fowlkes and retired UFC and WEC fighter Danny Downes discuss the possibility of a trilogy fight springing from the UFC 202 main event, and just whose interests such a series would serve. * * * * Fowlkes: We saw ourselves one memorable rematch in UFC 202's pay-per-view headliner on Saturday night, Danny.
By: Dann Stupp and Abbey Subhan | August 21, 2016 12:15 pm LAS VEGAS - After a grueling fight and tough loss, what's a man to do? In Nate Diaz 's case, it's nothing a vape pen can't fix.
By: MMAjunkie Staff | August 21, 2016 10:45 am UFC 202 was a bad night for Glover Teixeira 's title hopes - and his dental work. In Saturday's pay-per-view co-headliner at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Anthony Johnson (22-5 MMA, 13-5 UFC) took just 13 seconds to drop and daze fellow light-heavyweight contender Teixeira (25-5 MMA, 8-3 UFC).
LAS VEGAS - Conor McGregor looked as though he was tiring halfway through the second round of his highly anticipated rematch with Nate Diaz, but the featherweight champ dug deep to edge out a majority decision victory. The welterweight bout headlined today's UFC 202 event at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Some MMA fighters neglect social media. For Mike Perry, it's what what set up his opportunity to join the UFC roster and make his debut at UFC 202. Perry (6-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) has targeted a chance to step in the octagon since the start of his career.
What can we learn from Wednesday's UFC 202 pre-fight press conference melee? And is UFC 202 the real UFC 200? Plus, is Donald Cerrone more fun the further he is from a title fight? All that and more in this week's Twitter Mailbag. To ask a question of your own, tweet it to @BenFowlkesMMA.
It was a startling admission, and one that seemed to require further explanation. "I have a tumor on my stomach, but I don't have a way to get that fixed," UFC women's bantamweight Leslie Smith said on a recent episode of "Inside MMA" on AXS TV as part of a segment detailing efforts to form a fighters association.
Should MMA be an Olympic sport? This was the question I examined with my colleague Danny Downes in a recent Trading Shots column, which resulted in neither of us feeling terribly enthusiastic or hopeful about the prospect of ever seeing a cage fight on that particular world stage.
The UFC returns to Las Vegas this week for UFC 202, and the promotion is rolling out the "Embedded" treatment for a preview of Saturday's pay-per-view event at T-Mobile Arena. As expected, all eyes are on the headliners.
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 politicians Barack Obama and Mitt Romney by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama +Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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
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.
