We’re living in an era where MMA fighters and boxers all want a piece of each other. You can blame Conor McGregor for showing the world how possible (and lucrative) the whole endeavor is. Before him, it was widely accepted than anyone crossing over to the other sport would get nothing but embarassment out of the experience. These days, everyone’s just looking at the dollar signs and not really worrying about the rest.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to travel the world and study all the fighting styles that make up modern mixed martial arts? Now you’ve got the chance to live vicariously through Brawler, a brand-new UPROXX Snapchat series. Journey along with us, as fight coach Shane Fazen takes you from Brazil to Thailand and everywhere in between. Along the way, you’ll get to immerse yourself in unique fight cultures and see the hard work and dedication that goes into mastering a martial art.
As if Conor McGregor crossing over into the ring to box Floyd Mayweather in 2017 wasn’t crazy enough, it’s starting to sound like there’s a very real chance Floyd will make his MMA debut in the UFC later this year. Initial teases from Mayweather on the subject were met with a lot of skepticism, but now we’ve got UFC welterweight champ Tyron Woodley setting up a training camp for the boxing legend and Mayweather confirming it all. “I’m gonna start soon,” Mayweather told TMZ Sports.
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".
