Getting your ass kicked is certainly no fun. But looking like you got your ass kicked is even worse. Sometimes you can lose a fight and still hit the club with barely a scratch on your face. But these MMA fighters don't have it so good. By the looks on their bloodied, defeated faces, it seems the club hit them first.

The Smurfs are cute and funny but they're also quite troubled. The names that identify each miniature blue creature aren't merely names picked out by parents, rather they're adjectives that for many of them indicate mental illnesses of varying severity. If you see "The Smurfs" this weekend (or some old cartoons) you may have a hard time noticing anything but their various afflictions--nine of them are depicted below in a handy infographic (reference intended).
If there were a Psychiatrist Smurf, he would have made a killing. But in his absence, we reviewed the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders and now present you the diagnoses for Grouchy Smurf, Jokey Smurf and more.

Professional sports leagues love to promote stories about their players volunteering in their communities and spreading the love around. But, as the above infographic demonstrates, that giving spirit oftentimes leads athletes to spread something else--their seed. During the regular season, these guys travel nonstop, and nights on the road can get lonely. Unfortunately for some, the price of quenching that loneliness is a couple decades' worth of child support. Click the image above for the 10 pro players with the most babies by different baby mamas.

If you're like us, you're obsessively building your Google+ circles right now. Unlike Facebook, Google+ allows you to organize your followers into handy circles like "friends," "family," and "annoying coworkers who won't shut up about the Casey Anthony verdict already."
Like Twitter, it appears celebrities are getting in on the Google+ action. Through our vast web of Hollywood insiders (who we pay with "Jersey Shore" grenade whistles), we've been able to obtain the Google+ circles of some celebrities and MTV favorites. Find out who Lindsay Lohan, Charlie Sheen and more have in their Google+ circles below.

There's something inherently hot about a girl in a band. And when that girl is a babe before she straps on the guitar, you really have something special. But rocker girls aren't for everyone; some guys would rather their female performers take part in well-choreographed dances while wearing spandex suits and hands-free mics. While those guys can have their Britneys and Katy Perrys, we'll take an indie girl in plaid and tats. In celebration, here are nine crushable indie rock babes, and what your taste for each means about you.
So you're planning on having an awesome July 4th party. Excellent decision. You'll probably stock up with beer, fireworks, compile a monster music playlist and invite over friends and family. You may even have a pool and an outrageously long slip 'n slide annexed to it. Beer games--check. This is all great, but...how will the Independence Day extravaganza turn out? If all goes well, everyone will have a blast on a sunny day with a 30 percent probability of a sick day on Tuesday.
To aid you in determining how you and your guests will fare at the party, we pooled our collective July 4th experience and created this handy flowchart so you'll have a solid idea how the party will conclude.

Although the government recently killed the food pyramid in favor of "My Plate," the triangle tower of grub remains a perfect way to illustrate how music fans should be consuming hip-hop. A steady diet of Notorious P.I.E. and Aesop Rocky Road may taste great, but you've got to balance that with some Jay-Ziti and Ludacrisps.
Obviously, we've taken the liberty of altering the names of the game's best artists to construct the Hip Hop Pyramid. And for good reason: It was a lot of fun. But more important, so you could meet your recommended dietary hip-hop allowance for each of the main food groups. Tweet us your best additions @MTVClutch with the hashtag #rapperfoods and we'll post them later. Get your grub on.

In the inevitable all-consuming alien robot war between the Autobots and Decepticons, we all may have to take a side. Humans can either stand idly BY as the Transformers battle to the death, or take the form of their car and participate in the machine massacre.
Naturally, when it's time for destruction again on June 29 (when "Transformers 3" hits theaters), rappers will choose to fight. And since Bumblebee has already taken the 2010 Camaro, musicians and beat makers will have to morph into some different whips. We've imagined how a bunch of them will look as (one of) their own cars. Dr. Dre, above, is his Hummer H2--aka one scary mofo.
