    Lol, Arnold won with traps. No doubt, Sergio was mistreated by the IFBB

    Funny how a lot of people who didn't really know the history assumed from Pumping Iron that Ferrigno was Arnold's biggest rival, when Sergio was the only one who ever worried him.

    this is true he also wouldn't leave Chicago and would work out in a small private gym. The exact opposite of Arnold who was completely better representative of the sport. I think he eventually stopped following posing rules cause he thought they favored arnold than of course he would lose than not want to compete. Someone older might remember it better. But that's close.

    haha noticed that too. Nubret was another beast (along with harold poole who is mentioned in the article as well). I saw a much older Nubret at my gym when I was in high school in 98 or 99. Dude was slightly starting to gray but still swoll under his track suit. In his prime his abs and upper chest were show stealing.

    Always a fan of Sergio, incredible look...ahead of his time. Arnold said it perfectly:
    "He was a terrific, terrific guy. We never spent much time together back in the day because I was on the West Coast and he was in Chicago, but we interacted when we were at competitions and at other events we attended. And in later years he came to the Arnold Classic several times. I had great, great admiration for him: His personality, his work ethic, his look— everything. There will never be another like Sergio— that I can guarantee. Everything after him is fake. He was the original. He was The Myth."
