In October 2013, ULTMMA.com (www.ULTMMA.com) released version 5.0 of our annual MMA big board affectionately known as the ULTMMA50. Seven months after the snapshot in MMA time that was the 2013/2014 ULTMMA50, the 50 fighters listed have all tweaked their resumes. Ranking different fighters from different weights classes that for the most part fight in entirely different promotions is an exercise rooted in patience and informed speculation.
With UFC matchmakers Joe Silva and Sean Shelby having the ULTMMA50 (possibly) pinned to their office white board, a whooping 22 prospects have already been signed to the UFC. So with the benefit of hindsight how did a pound for pound list of 50 diverse MMA prospects hold up?

From the land of San Diego Comic Con 2014, Cartoon Network's Adult Swim revealed its latest project Mike Tyson Mysteries. This is not Mike Tyson's Punch Out. This is not Mike Tyson a Broadway stage show. This isn't even Mike Tyson singing a Phil Collins song on the silver screen. MTM is Mike "freaking' Tyson in animated form solving the world's mysteries and helping out his fellow man in a very comedic manner.
MTM cannot not be amazing, MTM can overcome a double negative and turn it into a positive. After the jump our friends at IGN.com go one on one with Tyson to talk his latest animated project.

Melvin Manhoef (28-11-1) is a vicious striker with a cult following. One week after putting his MMA career back into focus, through a multi-fight deal with Bellator, Manhoef took a kickboxing bout with vet César Córdoba. The results of Manhoef versus Córdoba were swift and violent.
The controversial fight and stoppage begins at the 8:30 mark of the video. Since 2013 the 38 year old Manhoef is 1-2 in MMA.

The theme song for the upcoming Michale Bay version of TMNT, "Shell Shocked" rap review: it's pretty much all downhill after the first verse. Opening verse and hook are strong but the rest of the track is pretty much CGI infused garbage juice. Still better than the Vanilla Ice song from "TMNT 2 The Secret of the Ooze" soundtrack.
As bonus after the jump is the trailer for the season finale of season 2 of the rebooted Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon series. And for those TMNT fans who grew up in the 1980s and 1990s, the 2012 Nickelodeon version of the cartoon turtle brothers is much better than the version when you were a kid. A controversial but very true opinion.

Get it while it's and or copyright claims take it down. Scheduled to be released on May 6, 2016, comic fans got their first very brief glimpse of footage Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. If you weren't live at San Diego Comic Con 2014 you missed out. But thanks to one brave fan with a very grainy and lo-res camera phone, fans can at least get a little peek of Zach Synder's take on the DC Universe.
