Why is Lonnie Teper against the 202?  I thought the promoters liked it cause it brings in more $$$.  Vegas betting line has Larry Pepe as the early 2-1 favorite to beat Lonnie in this debate.

Gary is looking great of late.  Far better than a recently deposed Mr Olympia yet 4 or 5 years older.

Also, ask if his metabolism was so fast that if he didnt eat for 2 days he would drop 100lbs

At least the little guys can win a few dollars with the Minus 202 class.  Lonnie T is opposing this?  :-\

Should be interesting, but I think the debate centers around whether it is fair for someone who is 205 pounds not able to compete in two contests, and gets a chance to get some prize money twice. 

Also, will it bring in more ticket sales to the promoter, or will ticket sales be the same?

I think perhaps the debate might be looking at it from a promoters view, and also an athlete over 202 pounds than an athlete under 202 pounds.

Looking forward to the discussion between two masters of discussion... LT vs. LP.  Teper vs. Pepe.  Both long time in the bodybuilding industry.

Big feet, white sox and his legs rub together when he waddles across the beach!

On the positive side, it looks like the 'plugs' have taken.

Hearing Strydom on the radio was cool.  Good guest.  He said they paid him 1 million dollars over 3 years to leave the IFBB and go to the WBF.  Thats a pretty good amount of cash for 20 years ago.  I bet any of todays guys would take that deal and run.

Gary had plugs put in about five years ago, they didn't take.

This new round of plugs is looking to be more successful.

It's good to see a new and relaxed Strydom mixing with the public!  Great role model for the sport!

As far as 'plugs' go, that is not a bad operation.

Look, Gary is as vain as the next Pro.  Good luck to him for trying to make the best of his appearance.

Growing old gracefully is not what this dude is about.  He is basically an adolescent at heart!

If I remember correctly from the radio show on Monday, they said that Gary competed in  22 pro shows back in the late 80's and 90's,
and he got 1st or 2nd in 18 of them.

I've never spoken with him. However, just from watching him interact with others, he seems pretty cordial. Every time I've seen him work out, he is doing some type of machine work with moderate to heavy weight
