Arnold Winners Recap

Another year at the Arnold and new champions are crowned. 

Despite the expo being canceled the hype was still there. In the Men's Physique division Two-time defending champion Andre Ferguson won his third straight title! former Olympia champ Brandon Hendrickson hoped to derail him but fell short. IN the Classic division it was certainly a tight race towards the finish. We had a three-way battle for first place; Terrence Ruffin, Steve Laureus, and Alex Cambronero were all battling it out, Alex Cambronero came out victorious. As for the main event; the favorite going into the weekend was William Bonac. He came out victorious and 50-year-old Dexter Jackson came second in his last season as a pro.

Andre Ferguson topped a stacked field of 28 competitors to win the 2018 Arnold Classic Men’s Physique division for the biggest win of his career.  Since turning pro in 2014, Ferguson, known for his phenomenal symmetry, has won an impressive ten shows and has taken second place five times.


Ferguson was always into bodybuilding but wasn't so sure about competing.  With the help of a friend, they did a couple of shows together without really dieting and did surprisingly well.  A couple of natural athletes, both ended up turning pro a year later.


Ferguson likes to train on his own now.  He enjoys turning on some music and as he puts it, “getting lost in the weights.”  Very goal-oriented Ferguson likes motivating himself by setting goals, focusing all his energy on them until they’re accomplished and moving on to the next.
