Stipe Miocic’s all-but-officially-confirmed title defense against Francis Ngannou is not only a great way to start of 2018, it’s a great opportunity for the UFC to show that it actually knows how to promote big fights. They now have to prove their worth because Miocic and Ngannou have legitimately interesting backstories to match their brutal knockout power.
Matches between top six teams rarely live up to the hype. Manchester United versus Arsenal exceeded it. Both teams came out to play. Both teams executed their game plans. Both teams played well, scored great goals, and dominated portions of the game. It was the best game of the Premier League season so far. Jose Mourinho often gets criticized for how he sets out his teams in big games.
The UFC is at its best when two fighters step into the cage and throw down. It’s really that simple. UFC 218, which is Saturday night in Detroit, is a perfect example of this elementary fact. Straight-up killer Max Holloway will defend his featherweight title for the first time against silent assassin Jose Aldo while title shots will be determined in the men’s heavyweight, flyweight and possibly even lightweight divisions. Yet one thing is completely and gloriously missing from 218: nonsense.
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".
