Hidetada Yamagishi: The Phoenix Champ?

Top 5 certainly! Sadly however the judges tend to favor the bigger guys like Toney Freeman over guys like Hide. At the Olympia Toney was 8th with Hide nipping at his heals in 9th. It's high time for a win for Hide!

First up some shots of the 5'8" Hide weighing in at 218lbs just four days before the first pro show of the year. These were taken by Natalie Minh a photographer (and model) who'll be working on more stuff for MD:

Next up some shots from Eric DiLauro (pictured above with Hide) and MADMAX6 from the MD forums, first four days out and then just three:
