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.

3) Anderson Silva
4) Jake Shields
There is really no way to truly describe the DOMINATION Ben Burns has displayed this month.
A PERFECT 6-0 Saturday (5-0 in NCAAF) brings him to a JAW DROPPING 70-29-2 (70%) in August! This near UNPRECEDENTED run has seen him lose only SIX days all month.
Burns' clients have profited almost $30K alone in August. You in?
1* Baltimore (1:35 ET): All signs are pointing towards an Orioles sweep this weekend. The home team won big Friday and then again Saturday by a final score of 3-2. These teams continue to head in opposite directions. Baltimore has won five of six. Minnesota has lost 10 of 14. With only the Orioles in a pennant race, this shaped up as an easy series and I'll call for them to finish things off proper.
I've liked what I've seen from Wei-Yen Chen so far. He only made it through 4.2 innings the last time we saw him, but that was also the first time he didn't go at least five in nearly two months. In eight of his last nine starts, he's allowed three runs or less. In his last three, he has a 2.84 ERA and 1.16 WHIP.
Minnesota is just 19-25 vs. LH starters this year.
They also went just 1 for 12 with runners in scoring position yesterday. Against a Baltimore team allowing just 2.9 runs its last seven games and allowing opponents to hit just .218, that's trouble. The Orioles bullpen has a ridiculous 1.06 ERA the last 14 games.
Twins starter Ricky Nolasco pitched well the last time we saw him. But he still has a 6.50 ERA and 1.77 WHIP on the road this season. 1* free play.
