    Ya'll are crazy-- Jose still on the top of his game just needs to be healthy and have life cooperate. I think he shows up at his all time best once more before he walks away.

    It's like comparing Melvin Anthony to Flex Wheeler.

    I met Derek this year helping out on the Animal booth on FIBO, he is such a gentle, friendly guy with a great sense of humor. Had an amazing weekend there in Cologne. The gains he is making under the wing of Ben Pak are unreal. Each time I open my instagram I see a new picture of Derek, one crazier than the other. He also has a great winning mindset. Rooting for him all the way! The way he came up by storm won a pro card, did the olympia and now even a serious contender for the 212 title! Amazing the sport needs more guys like derek. Staying humble!

    As I said in mine and Ron’s 2017 post Olympia wrap-up video, I think Derek will be 212 Olympia champ AFTER Flex.

    Hahaha.. Derek would smoke him. His kid was a tiny waist and great shape Hadi is big but his shape isn't even close. Hadi could not even make it to Canada

    Mate, I have to disagree. Hadi is no joke. Would love to see the two of them compared though. I honestly think Hadi would take Derek.

    But, depends how much improvements Derek has made since last year’s Olympia. Which he clearly has.

    You're Hadi's no 1 fan like BMC is Ramy's biggest supporter or like Betiona loves Phil from the bottom of his heart. Great thing for bodybuilders to have such dedicated people like yourselves!

    I agree with you Goon plenty of times,but not in this case,Hadi is more complete than Derek,the kid needs more time to refine his amazing physique,Hadi is too much for him yet.

    Derek has the size and shape, just needs time to refine his physique. Next year he should be in the running for the 212 crown.

    Sorry, I’m going with Goon on this one. When it comes down to it, I’d much rather have Derek’s physique. Hadi definitely has some freaky in shape muscle, but I’m more about aesthetics. Hadi doesn’t really have that...at least as far as I’m concerned. That being said, I don’t think the IFBB judges would see it the same way as me.

    Not too mention, Lunsford has a badass first name!!
    I stop me....no one else does.

    Come on man. Invoking two examples of all timers at peak moments for this dude is jumping the gun. Pump the brakes a little.

    Social media pictures mean nothing. He looks great but I'm not counting on him leapfrogging over David, Jose, Ahmad and Flex just based on those pictures. Not saying it's impossible, but I think there's a strong chance you will all be disappointed on the day of the show. Think of how many times someone has posted a bunch of pictures online where they look crazy, everyone thinks they will win, and it ends up being a different story when you see them next to their competition under stage lighting.
