    The flip side, this division never had to be created to satisfy the "Smaller" guys since pro Bodybuilding is an "OPEN" competition of Professionals.

    End the end, this division is not long for this world with dwindling numbers as well as contests. Fewer shows I am certain are designed to have the athletes focus on competiting in them when they come along on the calendar.
    Sadly, if the Athletes dont show up these shows will got the way fo the 8 track Player and the competitiors will be thrown once again into the Deep End of the Ocean to swim with the Sharks!

    So, who's right?

    The Athletes complaining or the Promoters who are losing money?

    Things that make you go "HHhhhhmmmmm.....?"
    I predicted this when the wt changed. Bob disagreed with me, but I quess I was right. That might not be the only reason if the IFBB raised the sanction fee or if it cost more than the other divisions.

    Maybe - but I still think with the wt limit up to 212, most of the guys who turn pro's as LW's, MW's, and WW's are going to see no hope against guys right at the limit or close like Flex, Henry, Sami, Jose, Eduardo, etc. They will be just as outsized by them as if they were up in the Open shows, pretty much.

    yep so true but hey it was done to the women in fbb. Soooo if women want to compete whether light weight or middle weight they do ...they have no other choice but to do so or not compete at all.
