Bing Adds UFC Fighters to Instant Answers

If you're into UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship), then you have a new way to get quick info on the mixed martial arts organization. Bing has added UFC athlete information to its Instant Answers feature.

Simply type the athlete name into the Bing search box and you'll get the Instant Answer:

This update to Instant Answers isn't perfect, though. Searching for Kevin Burns turns up this result:

But if you search Kevin Burns MMA, you'll get the result:

Additionally, if you search Andrei "The Pit Bull" Arlovski - with the quotes, you won't get an Instant Answer:

But if you put the words 'The Pit Bull' in inverted commas, and make the words Pit Bull into one word Pitbull, then you'll get an Instant Answer:

You can also get that Instant Answer by just searching for Andrei Arlovski.

Instant Answers were launched on Live Search last year and carried over to Bing. There are currently Instant Answers for shopping and flight searches, Translation, MTV Movie Awards, NCAA basketball tournament, NBA and NHL.
