that is because non of the top NPC guys ever go there, no one cares about that show, down here, they all want a pro card, nothing more.
Sammi won that that show and he is not even top dog in the 212
-Sami Al Haddad was 3X World BB champion , not World Classic winner.
-World title is much bigger piece of cake than the US title.
-Can you name just 3 Americans with Ifbb Worlds titles in the last 10 years
-Real fact is, shortage of $$$$ for traveling
-Future of sport is in Amateurs BB ranks
-Ifbb just announced that Classic BB will be Olympic BB ( I hope so)
