Bullfighting is a game of life and death — a fact one matador and bull learned the very hard way. Arturo Macias, 35, was gored by a bull he was fighting and nearly died on Saturday, when the beast slammed his horn into the matador’s throat. Miraculously, the horn missed Marcias’ windpipe by mere inches.
Gegard Mousasi has the perspective the of an old man even though he’s only 32-years-old. That’s because he has 50 professional mixed martial arts fights under his belt. He’ll make it 51 on Friday in his Bellator debut against Alexander Shlemenko (56-9-0), one of the few men who has more fights than Mousasi. That’s where the similarities end. Mousasi (46-6-2) is one of the very best middleweights in the world and has won seven of his past eight fights in the UFC’s stacked middleweight division.
On Friday night, a 1-0 fighter will battle an 0-0 fighter in an arena attached to a casino in Connecticut. The fight is part of Bellator 185 and will probably be watched by close to a million people on Spike TV because the 1-0 fighter is Heather Hardy. Hardy made her MMA debut in June at Bellator 180, which was by far and away the biggest event in the company’s history.
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".
