It's a shame he retired,he had so much potential,he is insanely naturally strong,apparently he weighed over 300lbs without training.

I remember watching him compete at around 430 pounds, then he "leaned out" to 400, lol. Never looked that big either. Just a huge barrel chest to offset the fat.

I agree, dude was an animal. Massive potential, but it just seemed like he either never had the conditioning, or the toughness for the events. At least in all the footage I've seen he had about 30-45 seconds to do CRAZY things but then he was done, and in events which frustrated him he seemed to just give up in. I feel he would do well in the current field though. More max lifts are coming about in strongman and I think this is where he would have excelled.

What I meant is that he didn't look like he was over 400. He carried his weight differently.
