    Arnold Predictions?


    I am not sure if the entire roster of competitors is out, nor am I sure if Dexter will return to defend the title. I do know that Heath and Wolf are out. So here is the prospective list:

    Gustavo Badell
    Moe El Moussawi
    Toney Freeman
    Kai Green
    Ahmad Haider
    Marcus Haley
    Johnnie Jackson
    Dennis James
    Victor Martinez
    Ronny Rockel
    Silvio Samuel
    Sergey Shelestov
    Branch Warren

    Top 5:
    1. Victor
    2. Kai
    3. Branch
    4. Tony
    5. Silvio

    Any thoughts?

    I will have to agree with you on that line up. I would love to see Kai and Victor being neck and neck.

    Toney would stomp branch any day of the week IMO. Switch their spots. Hell Silvio might even take Branch for that matter.

    I think Branch will have a huge return, although I think this is Victor's year if he is healthy

    Don't expect that knee to hold him back. It better be his year after the **** they pulled at the 07 "O".

    Unfortunately for branch, he has that jay cutler-esq blocky build. Just doesn't look as good as the guys with little waists.

    Not a big fan of victor, but not for his physique more because of his personality.

    branch is freaky but his proportions are off, his arms are too small imo

    victor is the next mr O

    Freeman....well it depends which freeman shows up, he has a problem with conditioning sometimes but if its the freeman from the last olympia....oh boy! look out!

    Kai, idk we havent seen him for awhile so you dont really know what to expect there, could be right with freeman in front of kai.

    Silvio always looks good, he nails his conditoning and he has a good physique but he is fighting giants.

    Dennis james or jonnie jackson are the two wild cards that could get in the top 5 if someone is off.

    I think Kai came in a little drier than victor, he looked real good, but I still think his posing routines are too gay. Silvo looked pissed when he got fifth.

    Being done for would require that he had once been there. Gustavo was never a true contender in my eyes. Big guy... works hard I am sure... but he is just another face on a muscletech ad IMO.

    yeah thats what i remember too, he was 3rd to ronnie and jay so he was a was. I would think his body doesnt respond well to gear anymore or he just lost his drive and just half asses it now.

    He is pretty blocky for today's competition. Jay is pretty blocky too, just seems to be a lot more popular with the judges.

    I couldn't take Gustavo seriously after he flexed his bicep in that one video and said "all natural"... I mean, maybe he was referring to not injecting synthol into his muscles, but all naturall... lmao.

    i agree, it looks like he doesnt even train legs and he should just call it a day with big proshows. He isnt all that bad, i mean he can still stand with the other pros but just from what he was before i think he is just getting smaller, just a turn for the worse in general.
