Has there ever been another current Mr O that was defending his title and had no sponsors?

Big Phil lost because Shawn was better on the day. Better conditioning and better posing, did you see when he went from double back bi to front quad sweep? Awesome. Shawn deserved it this year but Phil will return.

If Kai Greene competes he has his best chance of ever winning with Heath not being a defending champ.  He could also get endorsements from Crockett Farms or Indian River fruit companies which would probably be the first real food (not supplement) company to endorse a bodybuilder.

honestly i don't understand him getting 2nd this year and 1st in 2016 when he had the same gut problem

size wise he dominated rhoden in most of the mandatory poses especially the back poses where he still looked perfect,  in 2016 phil was out muscled in every pose by ramy

i liked rhoden's body more, but it's like the judging criteria was changed on the spot, a gut hasn't mattered in bodybuilding since the early 90's yet now it suddenly matters

And it's about time.

You're right. The bubble gut didn't matter as much but the criticism kept building and building. They did change the standard this year.

The IFBB had to wait for someone else to be competitive with Heath as Big Rami had already deserved to win the previous 3 years but no way they were gonna let a Muslim win the Olympia.

I really did not understand the narrative that Ramy was way off this year.  I thought he looked great, one of his best showings.

Maybe my finely-tuned eye for the champion bb physique is going with age.
