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* Free Play Padres.Editors Note: After finishing the 2012/13 NFL season up over +$24,000 units, the 2013/14 NCAAF season up over +$39,000, and after going a PERFECT 6-0 w/ his NFL on Sunday, it comes as little surprise to learn that AAA Sports is DOMINATING the 2014/15 NFL season! 14-6 in Regular! 14-6 in Preseason! 11-0 (100%) w/ 10* NFL YTD!
The Padres have been very good at home lately and I think they ultimately earn a victory in this matchup with the Rockies. Colorado sends Tyler Matzek (6-10, 4.19 ERA) to the hill, who would surrender 11 hits but managed to hold the Dodgers to two runs over 5 1/3 innings in a win in his last outing. Note though that the lefty is 1-2 with a 4.29 ERA lifetime against the Padres and is just 2-6 with a pedestrian 4.70 ERA on the road this season. San Diego counters with left-hander Eric Stults (7-17, 4.59 ERA) who is 3-2 with a 3.97 ERA in 68 innings pitched versus the Rockies lifetime; note that the Friars are 8-3 in games started by Stults against the Rockies. Both these teams come in hot but I think the Padres have the advantage; yes the Rockies have been hot in winning six in a row at home but remember, they lost six straight away from friendly confines before the skein. San Diego has won six of seven so far on this home stand after a three game sweep of the San Francisco Giants and is a strong 46-32 at Petco Park this season (it doesn’t come as any surprise to learn that the Rockies are one of the worst road teams in all of baseball with a 20-55). Additionally, the Padres are 5-2 when hosting the Rockies the last three seasons. I think the home side is worth the price of admission in this spot.
