Well where he's comming from is the competition held at the Olympia between Johnnie and Ben is to determine the worlds strongest pro bodybuilder.
Stan is a IFBB pro.
So even though you or me are stronger than Arnold or whomever, we aren't IFBB pros (me being much farther away from that than you are LOL)
I was told that the Ronnie clips were used because those were what Ronnie put out there as his strongest lifts on video and Ronnie always claimed to be the worlds strongest bodybuilder, so that's why the comparison.
Ben White and JOJ have a bit of a personal issue that's been going on for a few years now, that's why this is going on between the two of these guys
Ben has always been a trash talker. He does have a great raw bench (I think 605 in a contest). He has not done well as a pro, at least relative to the way he talked in the magazines etc. I don't think he and Jackson really have a feud other than that created by those promoting this event. Jackson is billed by MuscleTech as the world's strongest bodybuilder and supposedly Jackson takes exception to that.
Stan strikes me as just trying to get into the mix. He won a pro card and is incredibly strong. I understand him wanting to be in the meet.

STAN is the real deal bros. LOOK AT THOSE DEEP SQUATS, thats how it should be, deep enough where you dont have to wonder, clean solid lifts. All three lifts are just awesome. I give you much respect Stan. I hope you get your shot to prove it.
Stan is a beast!!! Definitely hardcore.
He could really do some damage w/ the right gear & training if he choose to PL exclusively...
I like this guy Stan! And the smack talk was done in a classy way. Like an old world challenge...throwing down the gaunlet! Let's see if either of them pick it up! I agree that when it's done right; this can be good for the sport!

I am glad that Stan is creating some hype, and he does deserve it. When I posted up the video of his incline dumbell press about a month ago I had never heard of him - but to see what he has achieved in powerlifting / bodybuilding is impressive.
Looking forward to seeing the results of the contest at the Olympia, and then seeing how Stan responds.
