Less than a week stands between the grappling worlds and the start of the 2017 ADCC tournament. This year continues the tradition of bringing together some of the best and most well-known names in competitive grappling. This preview focuses on the 99 kilograms division that is without defending champion, Rodolfo Vieira who has commitments in mixed martial arts.
ADCC kicks off in a few days and the grappling community is abuzz for this major bi-annual event. Each division houses a wealth of talent throughout the bracket. The same is for the heavyweight group, and Orlando Sanchez is back, looking to defend his 2015 title. In his way are some of the best names in the sport, hoping to snatch that title out of his hands.
Judging in combat sports is far from an exact science. At least once a show there seems to be a judgement that causes confusion and anger amongst the fighters, fans and pundits alike. Yet, there are times when a judge’s scorecard is glaringly wrong. This Saturday, Adalaide Byrd turned in such a scorecard with her 118-110 score in favor of Canelo Alvarez over Gennady Golovkin. That controversy may cost her an opportunity to continue judging events for the UFC.
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".
