The only time the champ loses is when he is way off. Phil is never off. Unless the gets sick a couple days out or something terrible happens I don't see him losing for several years no matter who shows up in great condition. Phils structure and round muscle bellies imo are far enough ahead of everyone elses. I believe Kai was 100% and still got beat. I would have no problem being wrong though, I think it would be great for the sport.
I don't dispute Phil's win in 2012, but if a 100% Kai, Jay, Phil, Cedric, and Victor show up in Vegas this year? Good Lord! The judges will have their hands full - Phil is not that far ahead of any in that group, imo.
