    Why did Lou lose to Arnold in the 1975 Mr. Olympia?

    I have the film "Pumping Iron" on DVD, and though I think I might know the reason, I'd like input from more experienced lifters as to why Lou Ferrigno lost to Arnold Schwarzenegger in the 1975 Mr. Olympia.

    Lou was 25 or 30 pounds heavier than Arnold, but he got third place behind Serge Nubret and Arnold took first place. Were Arnold and Serge more cut, more defined? I understand that people with more mass sometimes lose to someone smaller, I just don't completely understand why.
