Saturday night’s UFC show in Pittsburgh was a relatively quiet affair, going up against the big Gennady Golovkin-Canelo Alvarez boxing match, which itself was territorially — one might even say cleansingly — going up against the Conor McGregor-Floyd Mayweather fight from a few weeks back. It’s been some strange times in the fight game, so strange in fact that UFC president Dana White opted to attend GGG-Canelo instead of Luke Rockhold’s return fight with David Branch.
Conor McGregor asked an important question last year, one that commanded a great deal of public attention — who the fook is that guy? It turns out his name is Jeremy Stephens, and he’s a guy that chops down lead legs with his own shin bones and feet, like a human scythe cutting through corn stalks. In his 26th UFC fight, Stephens went to Edmonton and attacked Gilbert Melendez’s left leg. He attacked it so thoroughly — and so often — that it gave his audience a case of the winces.
This weekend’s UFC 215 pay-per-view was going to deliver two title fights to the fight-starved denizens of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Yet late Thursday night the main event between flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson and 24-year old contender Ray Borg fell apart when word came out that Borg had been nursing an illness and would be unable to make the walk. Ain’t that some shit?
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 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
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".
