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
1* Iowa (7:30 ET): The Hawkeyes should be in quite the surly mood Sunday evening given that they're off a rare loss, one that saw them fall into an early hole that was too deep to climb out of in Indiana. Fortunately, it's a much lesser opponent tonight, that being Minnesota, a team who has yet to win a single Big 10 contest. Lay the points.
Perhaps you may recall that I went against Iowa in their loss Thursday. They were actually a slight dog in that one, but then again, it was a road game and all five of the team's losses have come away from home. However, here in Iowa City, the Hawkeyes are a perfect 12-0 straight up, winning by an average margin of 18 PPG. This will actually be one of the lesser opponents they've welcomed into Carver-Hawkeye all season.
Off its only other Big 10 loss this season, Iowa came back the next game and beat Northwestern by double digits. The spread is high here, as it should be considering how poor Minnesota has been this season. The Gophers lost their last road game, by 24 points, and are off a home loss to Michigan earlier in the week. They are 2-6 ATS this season after allowing 80 points or more in the previous game. 1* Iowa
