Garbrandt faced reigning Bantamweight Champion Dominick Cruz on December 30, 2016, at UFC 207. He became champion, winning the fight by unanimous decision after dropping Cruz on multiple occasions and nearly finishing him in the fourth round.  Both participants were awarded Fight of the Night for their performance.

In January 2017, the UFC announced that Garbrandt would be one of the coaches on The Ultimate Fighter 25 opposite former UFC Bantamweight champion (and former Team Alpha Male teammate) T.J. Dillashaw, with the two expected to face each other on July 8, 2017 at UFC 213.

Kenneth “Flex” Wheeler

Call it unfinished business. Kenneth “Flex” Wheeler, perhaps the greatest bodybuilder to never win the Mr. Olympia, will return to the contest stage at Joe Weider’s Olympia Weekend in Las Vegas, September 14-17. The 51-year old icon, who was born just weeks before Larry Scott won the first Mr. Olympia in 1965, will try to add the Classic Physique Olympia title to an illustrious pro career that kicked off in 1993 and ended with 17 wins and three Olympia runner-ups by the time he stepped offstage in 2003.

Flex Wheeler 2017 Training for Comeback at 51 years’ old

Flex Wheeler began his career training when he was a teenager initially with martial arts in mind. However, his natural development persuaded him to pursue bodybuilding. Despite this, he is on record as regarding himself as a “martial artist first, a bodybuilder second.” It also accounts for his remarkable flexibility in a physique so large. Even so he has been described by Arnold Schwarzenegger as one of the greatest bodybuilders he ever saw.

After a short career as a police officer, Wheeler focused full time on becoming a professional bodybuilder, taking the nickname ‘Flex’. He competed for the first time in 1983 but it was not until 1989 that he secured a first-place trophy at the NPC Mr. California Championships. Since then, he has placed second at the 1993 Mr. Olympia, narrowly missing a win (something he was to repeat in 1998 and 1999). He is a five-time Ironman Pro winner, four-time Arnold Classic, and has enjoyed victories in the France Grand Prix, South Beach Pro Invitational, Night of Champions and Hungarian Grand Prix.

In 1994, he was involved in a near fatal car accident that could have left him with lifelong paralysis. He started from scratch again, returning with remarkable speed to the top ranks of the sport. In 1999 Wheeler discovered that he had Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis, a form of kidney disease. Despite press speculation as to the cause of the failure, Wheeler pointed out that the condition is hereditary, not self-inflicted.

He announced his retirement from competitive bodybuilding in 2000, but continued to compete until 2002. He received a kidney transplant in 2003.  Flex was added to the Guinness Book of Records in 2000. Hear it straight from the man himself on what inspired him to come back now and why he made the move to classic physique.
