Reigning MM World Pro Champion Morris Mendez won the MM Universe HW Class last weekend in Miami. At 210 lbs., it was his heaviest competition weight but also his least conditioned. He said, "I tried to gain muscle in the off-season and got a little carried away. I was drinking a lot of protein powder and gainers for the first 4 months and then switched to red meat for the final 2 months. I need to keep all this new muscle tighter all year and come in next time a lot leaner but just as big." Morris knocked off Jeff Beckham who may have been bigger but it wasn't enough to knock off the classic shape and roundness of Morris.
