LOS ANGELES — A little less here, a little more there, and suddenly the weight difference in the first fight in Bellator’s Heavyweight Grand Prix isn’t that lopsided. Quinton “Rampage” Jackson weighed in at 253 pounds and Chael Sonnen registered 222 pounds Friday morning at the Sheraton Gateway Hotel, one day before their main-event showdown at Bellator 192 at The Forum. On Wednesday, both fighters said they weren’t sure what they weighed, but many were expecting a 40-pound differential.
Champion Douglas Lima is all smiles. Challenger Rory MacDonald is not. No doubt emotions will be high when they step in the cage Saturday night in the Bellator co-main event at The Forum. The happy-go-lucky Lima (29-6) will be looking to bag his biggest name to date during his second 170-pound reign in Bellator. “For me, every fight is the biggest, but this one is a little more special,” the 30-year-old Brazilian said. “Big guy. Been wanting to fight a guy like him for a long time. This is my shot.
Passing the torch is one thing. Then there’s handing off the equivalent of the sun. To your son, no less. Khonry Gracie will follow the footsteps of his father, UFC Hall of Famer Royce Gracie, when he makes his pro MMA debut Saturday at Bellator 192 at The Forum.
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".
