Pedigree: Julius’s parents must have known their son was going to be a ridiculous athlete considering that they named him after Dr. J and Clyde Frazier.
Strength: He’s the best pure athlete in the competition.
Weakness: He’d rather be playing basketball.
Predilection towards violence: Ingesting the wrong dietary supplement could put him in a rage and/or lead to a suspension.

Competitor (seed): Lorenzo Neal (11)
Nickname: Low Daddy
Reach: Not much.
Sponsor: Athletic Nation
Ring Music: Grab Them Cakes
Hometown: Hanford, CA. The town that just started recognizing Martin Luther King Jr. Day last year is also the hometown of Tyson Chandler, Steve Perry, and steroid enthusiast Ken Caminiti.
Pedigree: Lorenzo was an All-American wrestler at Fresno State.
Strength: Putting people on their asses.
Weakness: Stubby fingers mean he’ll never be a great sax player.
Predilection towards violence: Because he doesn’t get nearly enough physical contact as a lead blocker in the NFL Lorenzo returns to Fresno each off-season to work out with college wrestlers.
Fighting Style: He’ll come right at you and brawl, but that style belies his technical abilities.
