The Times’ MMA rankings for September as compiled by Todd Martin. Alexander Volkov picked up his fifth straight win, a TKO over Stefan Struve, and moved into the top 10. The biggest heavyweight bout in the near future comes at UFC 216 when Fabricio Werdum and Derrick Lewis look to rebound from competitive setbacks and move back towards title contention. As expected, Jon Jones’ B sample came back positive and he was stripped of the UFC light heavyweight title.
Even in the often heated realm of boxing judging controversies, the reaction to Adalaide Byrd’s scorecard for Gennady “GGG” Golovkin Saul “Canelo” Alvarez on Saturday was noteworthy for its fevered pitch and tone. Long criticized for her scoring in MMA, as well, Byrd was lambasted by a host of voices. What was particularly noteworthy was that many prominent figures went beyond simply deeming her incompetent and openly speculated about the very serious charge of corruption.
The UFC 215 scrap between Rick Glenn and Gavin Tucker on Saturday in Edmonton, Alberta, produced controversy of the wrong kind. Tucker was competitive early, but as the fight progressed, Glenn took over in a big way. By the second round, Tucker was taking a terrible beating. In the third round, it got even worse. The one-sided destruction continued for what felt like an interminable period.
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".
