Antonio Braga Neto trained for a MMA fight for the first time since 2015, but doesn’t believe in ring rust. The jiu-jitsu ace is finally scheduled to return to the Octagon at UFC Fresno, taking on undefeated Trevin Giles Saturday night. He told MMA Fighting that his body “responded well to training” after so many years away from the game. “It definitely didn’t look like I spent so much time sidelined,” said Neto, who won a gold medal at jiu-jitsu tournament Gracie Pro back in July.
Markus Perez is about to make his UFC debut, and he wants to make history in the company. The UFC matched up the Brazilian against fellow undefeated middleweight Eryk Anders at Saturday’s UFC Fresno, and Perez, who works his jiu-jitsu with Demian Maia and his striking with Marcos Rogerio de Lima — and spent some time at Alliance MMA in San Diego before his fight —, already aims to win two UFC belts. "I’m in the UFC, cool, but that’s not my dream,” Perez told MMA Fighting.
Iuri Alcantara is one of the most experienced fighters in the UFC bantamweight division, but still learned a new lesson in his last fight. “Marajo" faced Octagon newcomer Brian Kelleher at UFC 212 in June, which marked his 44th professional MMA fight, and lost via submission in less than two minutes. The original plan was to have Alcantara rematching Felipe Arantes in Rio de Janeiro, but for some reason the match-up never came to fruition.
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".
