The "So What?": As reported in "Andrew Oye's Pro-Muscle Report," the pro bodybuilding contest, where competitors will be battling for IFBB Pro Olympia Qualification Series points on the quest for Joe Weider's Olympia Weekend, is part of the larger sports and nutrition FIBO Power Expo, which also features strongman, mixed martial arts (MMA), Thai boxing, and powerlifting competitions. A guest-poser at the 2011 FIBO Expo, Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Phil Heath is expected to attend again this year.

Andrew Oye's Verdict: Some prominent names who competed at the 2011 contest are not on the list, namely the Top 3 finishers: 2008 Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Dexter Jackson (the 2011 FIBO winner), 2nd place runner-up Germany's own IFBB Pro Ronny Rockel and 3rd place IFBB Pro Roelly Winklaar. Projected to place well at the 2012 event: Johnnie Jackson ("World's Strongest Bodybuilder" Powerlifting Challenge contestant) and Michael Kefalianos (who recently finished in 2nd place at the Australian Grand Prix and in 9th place at the Arnold Sports Festival's 2012 IFBB Pro Arnold Schwarzenegger Classic Bodybuilding Championships -- both contests were won by IFBB Pro Branch Warren).
