Mauricio "Shogun" Rua
Rua took the UFC light heavyweight title from Lyoto Machida at UFC 113 Saturday night. The former PRIDE Grand Champion is back on track and leads the most competitive and star-studded division in MMA.
The UFC’s heavyweight champ could be the most hated man in MMA but there is no doubting his spot among the best in the sport. With freakish size, strength, speed and elite wrestling, not to mention a dark mean streak, Lesnar could be on top of the 265-pound division for a long time. He faces challenger Shane Carwin at UFC 116 in July.
Georges St. Pierre
The UFC welterweight champ improves with every fight. He’s a dynamic fighter with some of the best ground game in the sport. St. Pierre took care of Dan Hardy in his last bout, improving to 20-2. Next up for “Rush” will be a stint as a coach on The Ultimate Fighter and a date with former foe and rival coach Josh Koscheck.
The Last Emperor has rolled over the competition, posting a 32-1-1 professional MMA record. While his name and devastating power is well known, Emelianenko remains a mystery to some fans. His reluctance to sign with the UFC has prompted doubters. However, Fedor could really care less about the big stage or his next opponent for that matter. He fears no man, especially not Fabricio Werdum, who he faces in a Strikeforce event in June.
The UFC middleweight champion could probably make a stab at the light heavy and maybe even heavyweight titles if he set his mind to it. Silva’s motivation has come into question since he showboated his way to a win over Demian Maia at UFC 112. What have never come into question are the Spider’s skills. He can beat you six ways to Sunday but will probably be going for the KO against his next opponent, Chael Sonnen, just to shut everyone up.
The WEC featherweight champ is coming off a big win over Urijah Faber last month, improving his record to 17-1. Aldo has won 11 of his bouts by way of knockout and has crushing leg kicks and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Watch one of his fights and it’s easy to see why he rules the 145-pound circuit.

These are two solid defensive teams with a lot on the line Sunday night but we are getting a very solid number to take advantage of. This is the lowest total that each team has seen this season and it is actually one of the lowest over/under numbers in the entire league this year. The solid defenses are playing into that along with the fact that Seattle has gone under the total in four straight games while Arizona has gone under the total in two straight games with none of the six games even coming close to going over. This is where the value comes into play. While the Cardinals offense has been sputtering of late, the Seahawks defense has shown signs of poor play at times even though they are playing at a high level right now. On the flip side, Seattle has been average on offense but is more than capable of putting up points. While we failed to hit the over last week with Seattle and San Francisco, the same situation favors a higher scoring game again as we play the over involving teams that has gone under the total by more than seven points in three consecutive games. This situation is 25-7 (78.1 percent) to the over the last five seasons. Additionally, the over is 5-2 in the Seahawks last seven games after accumulating less than 150 yards passing in their previous game while the over is 42-19 in the Cardinals last 61 games after scoring less than 15 points in their previous game. Play Over (129) Seattle Seahawks/(130) Arizona Cardinals
