I think it will be the usual tall people vs short people debate, nothing to due with the judging. Its inevitable since cedric looks so good as well.
Nah, I don't think there will be acrimony, because most people like Dexter's physique, whereas its probably the opposite with Branch. Not to mention controversy is always when the mass/freakier guy is preferred to a more aesthetic/better looking bodybuilder (e.g. Dorian/Ray 94, Cutler/Martinez 2007). A similar case can be made for Wolf/Branch, because Wolf looked "prettier" than Branch in most poses except for the side poses.
I think Dex coming off that powerful Olympia showing will have the edge (at least in the judges minds)

I think if dex replicates his masters showing he will get this also they do like dexs body at the Arnold he has won three. Also they love a bit of a story ala branch comeback from torn quad and what better of a story if dex wins his fourth and ties the all mighty flex. I could be wrong I am a little biased on this I did name my son dexter jackson Coyle lol
Been on the natty train for this long ain't getting off it now.
1. ben pak
dex getting dwarfed
lol do you even follow bbing or is this a troll post?
If dex brings conditioning like he did at the masters O this year the only person that can beat him is ced
1 and 2 are basically locks for dex/ced and everyone else will be fighting for 3rd-5th
''There’s this battle over waterboarding at places like Guantanamo Bay. I think that they should just say, “Hey, if you guys don’t talk, you have to see Hercules In New York.” I guarantee those guys would talk much faster. You don’t need to do waterboarding or anything else. That’s the ultimate threat.''

A lot of people have JOJ in the top 5. But history says otherwise. As far as prediction goes, its either Dex or Ced for first. Freeman, hide, pak Man all have a chance at top 5. BTW isnt Flex Pro supposed to be held before the Arnold, was it scrapped off or did i miss it.
No official prediction challenge thread up? Oh well, here's a just-for-fun one! Will rep all the top predictions (prob on spread for you anyway LOL)
Looking at that list reminds me of how weak the lineup is. If it wasn't for Dexter/Cedric, this would pretty much be a run of the mill tier 2 show....AC ain't the same caliber as the Olympia anymore. Wonder if this is going to hurt ticket sales/promotion etc.
