I know this is not really mma related but to anyone who followed bodybuilding in the 90's knows Nasser. One of the first true mass monsters and a great Olympia competitor.

RIP

Dude was seriously huuuuuuuuuuge.... I know many may find bodybuilding stupid, but it was people like Dorian Yates, Nasser, Flex Wheeler that I used to see in Flex magazine as a teen and led me into my first lisfting routines and experiences with weight training and eventually into a love affair with MMA.

Mushroom Slap - heart failure?

From what i'm hearing it was malaria of all things. But at the moment it's all speculation I suppose until real facts come out. Anyway, RIP best Egyptian bodybuilder of all time.

I never got the body building thing, but my buddy did it for awhile and I seen the hard work and dedication he put into it. Much respect.

RIP Nasser.

Definitely one of the pioneers in the shift to mass monsters when bodybuilding really became popular. Rip Phone Post

Random thought, but if I was a massive egyptian bodybuilder like him I'd grow a giant black beard that only arabs can grow and scare the shit out of everybody.

Apparently he caught Malaria visiting his home country.

RIP Nasser.

Had a guy in college back in the day who was into it.

He was obsessed with his traps and was always eating eggs or buying eggs. Phone Post

Met him years ago. Nice guy but ridiculously huge. Looked unhealthy and was sweating buckets just sitting there.

RIP. Phone Post

NotImpressedByYourScreenName -  I've heard cause of death was kidney failure Phone Post

Reports seem to be conflicting. I am hearing he had malaria and also had very bad kidney issues ... Most seem to be saying he wasn't looking to well regardless...

The bodybuilders of the 90's were very gung-ho about being the most massive, most ripped and dry with extremely low water and bodyfat day of competitions. These guys were the first to really start massive cycling with insulin, growth hormone and diuretics ... Quite a few have died... Yes they had insane work ethic and discipline but that were also playing with death each competition. Scary stuff...

I for one was a huge fan of Nasser in the 90's...I too wanted to have massive traps, chest and biceps like him. He was truly unmatched in the front posses. Call me gay or whatever, but in the mid to late 90's there was a huge bodybuilding movement and we were all in awe of how big these motherfuckers were getting...It all came with a price though..

I followed bodybuilding closely in the 90's. Nasser was definitely one of the big boys back then.

Not that these guys are the epitome of health, but Nasser probably drank as much Coke as he did water. He claimed he was addicted to it. Lol Phone Post
