It was a battle to the end when MM Universe Pros Ty Ogedegbe (L - Short Class) and legendary Morris Mendez (R - Tall Class) faced each other on stage in Miami Beach. Ty traveled from London and was competing as a MM Pro for the first time. The 5'8", 195 lbs., British bomber impressed the judges with a powerful, thick and rugged physique. Natural veteran Morris has taken on all comers before smashing them with confidence with his 5'10", 210 lbs. classic symmetry and full muscle bellies. But in the judges eyes, Ty had the physical package and condition and edged out Morris in an oh' too close 3-2 vote for the overall. No doubt it could have gone the other way on any other day and/or any other judges. But when you're on stage with the world's best natural bodybuilders, either you stomp your competition with impressive size, classic symmetry, lean condition and a flawless presentation, or its anyone's game. So, it was Ty-O's well earned trophy to claim in his first MM Pro outing. But, no doubt, The Legend will be back to remind everyone who has more MM crowns than anyone else!
