By: MMAjunkie Staff | September 5, 2016 1:30 pm Miesha Tate might just be able to turn to a superhero career once she's done fighting in the cage. This former UFC women's bantamweight champion has quickly become a hero to a young girl and her parents.
Veteran UFC featherweight Dennis Siver has a new opponent for Saturday's UFC Fight Night 53 card. The Swedish Mixed Martial Arts Federation ruled Taylor Lapilus (8-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) an unsuitable opponent for Siver (21-9 MMA, 10-6 UFC), so undefeated UFC newcomer Charles Rosa (9-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) has stepped in as a replacement.
A lot, including his UFC featherweight title, is riding on Conor McGregor 's next move. In Saturday's UFC 202 pay-per-view main event at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, 145-pound titleholder McGregor (20-3 MMA, 8-1 UFC) avenged a March loss to Nate Diaz (19-11 MMA, 14-9 UFC) in a non-title welterweight bout by scoring a narrow majority-decision win via 48-47, 47-47 and 48-47 scores.
By: Dann Stupp and Abbey Subhan | August 21, 2016 12:15 pm LAS VEGAS - After a grueling fight and tough loss, what's a man to do? In Nate Diaz 's case, it's nothing a vape pen can't fix.

PROVO, Utah - It might not be the most politically correct catch phrase in UFC history, but featherweight prospect Teruto Ishihara makes no apologies for his infamous UFC 196 proclamation. The man does, in fact, love his bitches. "That's what I truly was feeling, so that's what I wanted to say," Ishihara told MMAjunkie.
In this week's Twitter Mailbag, turns out there's a UFC event this weekend - but wait, the main event is actually worth your time, even if it's just through DVR. Also, "Cyborg" Justino has another UFC fight in a weight class that doesn't exist, and GSP keeps talking like he's really going to come back and fight again, for real this time.
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
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".
