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.

1* Free Play Lightning.30 STAR THU. FEATURES NBA, NHL, NCAAB!You'd be hard pressed to find a hotter NBA handicapper over the L2 years than AAA Sports! After finishing as THE No. 1 Pro Hoops capper on this site in 2013/14, he's now an AMAZING 66-46 +$14,090 Y-T-D this season! HUGE 10* NBA, NHL & NCAAB go Thursday! Go > HERE < for more details!
The NHL resumed and my first free play of the second half was a winner on these very Detroit Red Wings, they’d hold on for dear life in a 5-4 victory over the Panthers. But now the Wings face an entirely different animal in the Lightning, a team which entered the second half with a lead in the Eastern Conference, but which came out flat in its 4-2 loss to Carolina on Tuesday (I had the OVER in that one as one of my “official” selections); suffice it to say, I expect the home side to come in extremely focused this evening and for this determination to pay dividends for us at the end of the night. The Wings are down to their backup goaltender, Peter Mrazek is 5-0-0 over his six starts, but after posting a 1.63 GAA in his first three, the 22-year old has given up 11 goals with a 4.76 GAA in three games since. Here’s the perfect opponent to get untracked against, the Wings defensive slide is about to catch up to them here and it’s not like Tampa Bay will be intimidated whatsoever, it’s actually gunning for a franchise-best ninth consecutive home victory. And despite the setback at Carolina, note that the Bolts are still averaging a league-high 3.18 GPG. Also note, while the Wings have dominated the Lightning historically, winning 26 times in 38 all-time meetings between the clubs, Tampa has in fact taken five of the last six in the series, including two straight in front of the home town crowd. A pretty fair line in my estimation, I definitely think that the LIGHTNING are worth the price of admission in this spot. How about you, does Tampa Bay lay the hammer down, or do the Wings continue to surge?
