The 2017 Arnold Classic is going to be a special event.

None of the top 5 Olympians are competing and last year’s winner Kai Greene has also decided to skip the event.

Many are predicting that Cedric McMillan is the clear favorite. But is he really the true favorite.

Unfortunately, Cedric is known for not arriving at 100%, saying this, Cedric had some bad luck in recent years.

Last year, Cedric looked like he was going to walk away with the title, but Kai Greene edged him out in the posing round as it was scored.

Dallas McCarver is another competitor that has been mentioned a lot. Dallas could cause an upset, but will his overall look overpower a physique with flowing lines such as Cedric?

All these questions will surely be answered this weekend and we will definitely have a new champion.
