Dennis James collected Mr. Olympia 2022 predictions on recent episodes of “The Menace Podcast”, and his most recent predictions came from a former Mr. Olympia champion – Dexter “The Blade” Jackson.
Jackson joined James, Chris Cormier, Melvin Anthony, Stan McCrary and Milos Sarcev on a recent roundtable episode, and James put Jackson on the spot to make his top six Olympia predictions. Like many others, the 2008 Mr. Olympia has two-time Mr. Olympia defender, Mamdouh Elssbiay retaining the title. His first six in the general classification, however, seem very interesting. Jackson has 2019 champion Brandon Curry behind William Bonac and Nick Walker.

- Great Rummy
- Guillaume Bonac
- Nick Walker
- Brandon curry
- Hadi Choopan
- Samson Dauda
Jackson explained why he sees Elssbiay winning his third Mr. Olympia in Las Vegas on the weekend of Dec. 16-18.
“I made Ramy win because, first of all, he is already the champion. Two, no one brought it,” Jackson said emphatically. He thinks if one of the contenders shows up ripped and ready to go, it could make Saturday night’s finals even more interesting.
“If one of these guys can bring it with the conditioning, he can beat Ramy if Ramy is out of shape.”
Jackson shared this expertise from his personal experience. Although Jay Cutler was favored to win his third Mr. Olympia in 2008, he was not in his best form, and Jackson was arguably his best ever, which allowed “The Blade” to win the title in a historic upset.
The rest of the panel shares their own thoughts and opinions on what will happen at the Zappos Theatre, and you can see what happens for yourself by purchasing the Olympia pay-per-view at www.olympiaproductions.com.
