How did this photo gallery of Chris Bosh getting a woman eating a skull inked on his back fly under the radar for so long? Well, it went up during last season, when most people were trying to forget about the third wheel of Miami Heat's Thrice. Bosh has been maligned for his tender playing style. Although he's a 6-foot-11 power forward, the Dallas native refuses to really get in the paint and bang bodies--something the Heat really could have used against the Mavericks during The Finals. While his teammates LeBron James and Dwyane Wade are frequent flyers in South Beach's rowdy club scene, Bosh is more of a bookworm and wine snob. That's exactly why we never expected to see a tattoo like this under his jersey. The Coliseum, tree, eagle and tiger with music notes ink-jobs all seem to fit what we know of Bosh's personality. However, the cute woman about to gnaw on a human skull tattoo is a truly delightful surprise. That has to rank up there with DeShawn Stevenson's Abraham Lincoln tattoo as some of the NBA's best.

Nothing excites an MMA crowd like a man knocking another man unconscious. Whether by kick to the head, flying knee or some old-fashioned knuckle sandwiches, the crowd always erupts like Oprah just gave out free cars. Over the first half of 2011, there have been a lot of thrilling knockouts on "Bellator Fighting Championships" on MTV2 and it's hard to grade which chin-obliterating shot is better than the next, but we did anyway. Here are our half-year Bellator Top 5 Knockouts. Read More...
A day in the life of a 5-year-old usually consists of cartoons, toys and learning important skills like reading, writing and arithmetic. A day in the life of 5-year-old Chad Mendes, however, consisted of drills, wrestling singlets and learning important skills like how to execute a perfect-form takedown. You see, Chad "Money" Mendes has been wrestling ever since he was a wee lad, and those years dominating on the mat helped the 26-year-old amass an impressive 10-0 record in his three years as an MMA fighter who is on the cusp of a UFC featherweight title fight with current champion Jose Aldo. And he's got his dad to thank for it.
"I was a very hyper kid and my dad wrestled in his high school years so he got me into it," Mendes says. However, the wrestling that he thought he would be participating in was more of the Hulk Hogan variety rather than what he ended up seeing in the gym. "I actually still remember going to my very first wrestling practice. On my way to the gym I just thought it was going to be like professional wrestling. I was going to walk in and see the big ring with the turnbuckles. But all I saw were wrestling mats, and I said to myself 'What the hell?'" Read More...
Your friends pull sick tricks, have unique style and are way cooler than half the posers who claim to be "professionals." So why aren't your [insert chosen action sport] YouTube videos going viral? Well, X Games, you didn't edit them correctly. Most family members don't want to watch your home movies, so why would a world of strangers?
With the boom of video websites, action sports and reasonably priced technology, almost anyone can throw their homemade clips online--and judging from the deep muck out there, most already have. In an effort to help our readers set their videos apart, Clutch spoke with Death Cookie Entertainment's Tate MacDowell, an action-sports editor since 2003. MacDowell has edited footage of everything from kite-surfing and paragliding to snowboarding and motocross for companies such as Quiksilver, Red Bull, Armada Skis, NBC World of Adventure Sports and FUEL TV. The celluloid cut-master was kind enough to tell us how anyone can produce an exciting video. Read More...
Originally coined by Matt Stone and Trey Parker in "Baseketball" and later used in "South Park" as a reply to a stupid comment or action, the word "derp" has taken a slightly different--and, we think, funnier--meaning: as a description of a really ridiculous looking facial expression. (If this needs any further explanation, Urban Dictionary will spell it out for you.)
People most prone to make derp faces are those who are goofy, awkward, clumsy--and athletes. Athletes make all sorts of weird noises and expressions while performing feats of strength, often when the cameras flash. Catch them in all their un-glory after the jump. Read More...

Guys like fictitious characters for two reasons: (1) "I want to f*** her," and (2) "I want to grab a beer with him." We like Matthew McConaughey in "Dazed & Confused" and John Belushi in "Animal House" because we'd love to party with them. We like Jessica Rabbit and Lara Croft because...boobies.
It's nearly impossible for a sports mascot to be both family-friendly and sexually attractive, so baseball teams focus on that first half, creating mascots they think kids will like. But let's be honest here: Nine innings of baseball can be long and boring, and in the absence of cheerleaders, you better have a damn hilarious guy in a furry suit on hand to keep the grown-ass men in the crowd entertained. Because if a father likes the mascot, his kid will too. For the record, any baseball team in the market for a new mascot should follow the formula set by these five. Read More...
For those of you non-car enthusiasts (commies) out there, Mercedes-Benz is producing an online video series teaching the basics of high performance driving called AMG Performance Driving Academy Series. Based on some fancy driving school in Europe where rich guys go to learn how to look radical in their luxury sports cars, each short clip features instructors Tommy Kendall and Nick Kunewalder teaching you stuff like seat positioning, braking, over-steering, etc. They essentially give you everything you need to know about turning your parents' Mazda into a wheel-smoking terror. Never mind that disclaimer about not actually doing anything they teach. (Ha ha, just kidding. You mind it because, you know, it's dangerous and they're professionals.)
That said, this week's video totally shows us drifting, which is where you purposely over-steer, causing the car to lose traction, but still maintain control of the vehicle. The car starts off on the inside of the track and ends up on the outside of the track by the end of the track's turn. There is also tons of cool smoke involved. Don't tell him, but I'm going to borrow my neighbor's SmartCar (no judgment, it's Brooklyn) and see if I can get a drift going this weekend.
File this under under both great news and awesome trends: a lingerie basketball league called the LBL has sprung up, presumably because of the success of the LFL, the Lingerie Football League (aherrrrrm, which airs on MTV2). At this rate there will be lingerie hockey, baseball and soccer leagues by 2014, to which we say: nods approvingly.
The LBL appears to be governed by traditional basketball rules, the only difference being that they women wear lingerie, not shorts and jerseys. Bet you didn't see that coming. Keeping with the lingerie/babe theme, the four current teams, all based out of Los Angeles, are named the Glam, Beauties, Divas and Starlets. The young league is now two weeks into its inaugural season. You may be thinking, "hey, the WNBA has floundered and they have some pretty good players," but that ignores a simple truth--that men like women's boobies much, much more than women's basketball.
We hope by now you're ready for the league's tagline. Here goes: "Where beauty meets the hardwood." Yep, they went there. Now take a gander at more of the LBL's lovely ladies.
Every sport has its own slang and jargon. For MMA, it's a language of PAIN. Phrases like "armbar," "ankle lock" and "rear naked choke" are all referring to the elegant aspects of MMA known as "submissions." Forcing one's opponent to tap out before they're choked out has quickly become as exciting as a classic knockout punch. Over the first half of 2011, there have been a lot of slick submission in Bellator on MTV2 and it's hard to grade which arm wrenching or neck squeezing is better than the next. But we did anyway. Here are our midyear Bellator Fighting Championships Top 5 Submissions. Read More...
