The "So What?": As reported in "Andrew Oye's Pro-Muscle Report," powerlifter and IFBB Pro Ben White won the Open Class and IFBB Pro Jose Raymond won the 202 Class at the 2010 Tampa Pro Championships, but neither will return to the competition this year. World's Strongest Bodybuilder Powerlifting Challenge contender in 2009 and 2010, White has yet to qualify for the 2011 Joe Weider's Olympia Weekend, whereas Raymond qualified for the 202 Olympia Showdown with his win at the New York Pro last month. Florida-based Jason Huh was a late entry to this year's Tampa Pro roster.  

Andrew Oye's Verdict: Hidetada Yamagishi, who placed 8th at the Arnold Sports Festival's 2010 IFBB Pro Arnold Schwarzenegger Classic Bodybuilding Championships, looks like an early front-runner, with some attention directed at Banks, Curry and "Wrath" McGrath, who is back after recovering from a 2010 car accident that resulted in spleen removal. It will be a fight with Huh and his mass now in the mix, as well as rookie Dohne and his symmetry. Eyes will also be on Mark Dugdale to see how he stacks up in the Open Class, transitioning from the 202 Class like several of his peers lately. Al Auguste looks strong for the 202 Class in Tampa.
