ALL of the strength and muscular development from olympic lifting comes from the lower body and lower back, those lifts do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING for the arms, delts, or pecs. So who da fvck would want to have the pear body dat these lifts create? Not me! FUCK DAT NOISE!

Throughout the history of strength sports, the strongest overhead pressers have come from weightlifting.

Maybe so, but overhead pressing is no longer a part of OL, the jerk is not a true press.

The fact remains.

because bodybuilder are lazy as shit....and true Olympic lift with true Olympic form are more momentum than anything..

bench

Momentum?? I think you mean power.  Applying strength as fast as you can.  In athletics whether sprinting, punching or taking down an opponent power is the most important factor.  That's one of the main reasons a 165lbs boxer who can't bench 250lbs can punch harder than a lumbering 400lbs bench pressor.
