The "So What?": The inaugural FLEX Pro launches the IFBB Pro League 2011 contest season. As reported in "Andrew Oye's Pro-Muscle Report," this new contest also represents professional bodybuilding's "return to the Muscle Mecca" of southern California, replacing the 20-year-old IFBB Iron Man Pro Bodybuilding Championships, which closed its doors after the 2009 edition. (The last Iron Man Pro invitational  was won by IFBB Pro Silvio Samuel, and the contest has been won in the past by 3-time Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Jay Cutler, IFBB Pro Dexter Jackson, IFBB Pro Shawn Ray, IFBB Pro J.J. Marsh, IFBB Pro Gustavo Badell, IFBB Pro Toney Freeman, IFBB Pro Phil Heath, and multiples times by IFBB Pro Vince Taylor, IFBB Pro Flex Wheeler, and IFBB Pro Chris Cormier.) 

Andrew Oye's Verdict: The FLEX Pro Show has a variety of contestants, including an Olympia titleholder in 2008 Mr. Olympia Dexter Jackson (who is also a 3-time winner of the Arnold Sports Festival's IFBB Pro Arnold Schwarzenegger Classic Bodybuilding Championships); a Top-5 contender in three of five trips to Joe Weider's Olympia Weekend in Dennis Wolf; and two powerlifters in Ben White and Stan Efferding  The pre-contest favorites are Jackson and Wolf, along with buzz for Centopani. 2010 NPC USA Bodybuilding Championships Heavyweight winner Vladimir Sizov makes his pro debut at the event. This is the season kickoff. Let the games begin.
