VIDEO: Egyptian bodybuilder given trophy by Arnold Schwarzenegger after win

Egyptian bodybuilder Big Ramy outmuscles the competition at the 2015 Arnold Classic in Brazil, Schwarzenegger presents trophy

There were pecs, quads, and glutes aplenty at the 2015 Arnold Classic in Rio de Janeiro. Ten of the world's most muscular men battled it out in the Pro Fitness bodybuilding competition.

In the end, Egypt's Mamdouh Elssbiay, known as "Big Ramy" outflexed the rest. Former California governor, and the competition's founder, actor Arnold Schwarzenegger, presided over the event.

"Forty-five years ago I started the bodybuilding and fitness crusade, so it is wonderful to see the tremendous success, not only in Brazil, but all over the world. So I want to say thank you," Schwarzenegger said.

The third annual Arnold Classic Brazil featured dozens of sports including mixed martial arts, arm wrestling and even pole dancing. But, it was Saturday night's bodybuilding competition that had the Rio crowd pumped up.
