Dexter 'The Blade' Jackson is a name synonymous with bodybuilding. After first competing in 1993, Dex turned pro in 1999, and has one of the most illustrious careers of any bodybuilder.

Hauling in a whopping 5 US Arnold titles, and the 2008 Mr Olympia, Dex has seen it all in the bodybuilding world.

After placing 2nd in last years Olympia the question will be, can he take the top spot once again, 8 years after his first Mr.O title. If Dexter can nail his conditioning than there is no reason he can't win a second Olympia, however winning won't come easy when your main competition is Phil Heath.
