Las Vegas leviathan Eric Spoto stands among the greatest bench pressers of all time and throughout history. Currently ranked as the #1 raw bencher in the world, with a jaw-dropping 700 lb competition bench, Spoto is bringing his mammoth pressing power to his lifting debut at The Cage. When asked what it felt like to be invited to display his awesome strength within these hallowed chain-link confines, Eric responded with passion,

“Some of the craziest lifts I have ever seen have been in The Cage. I can't wait for the opportunity to have one of those lifts. The Cage is a rite of passage on the journey to becoming an elite lifter.”

If you are a fan of powerlifting, this is one event you won't want to miss.

I trained at that gym last December while I was at Vegas.

Then I find out that the Monolift was Stan Efferding's and that Forza bench was Spoto's. SICK

Spoto told me he used a lot of adrenaline after the initial warmup sets--the crowds in and around The Cage will do that to you. When he was preparing for 700, he wasn't sure if he had anything left in the tank. But that 700 went up like it was nothing. Incredible.

Seath and I were able to hang with him most of the weekend at the airport...both ways to and from Ohio.

What a great fuckin guy. Spoto is like a neighborhood kid you grew up with but very knowledgeable about his lifting.
We had a blast kicking it with him at the airports and we even shared a taxi with him on the way to CMH airport.

I have seen James Henderson raw bench press over 700 lbs raw live.
Now I can say I saw Eric Spoto do it live but in The Cage.

Just wanted to let Eric know that Tiny Meeker was in the Cage to watch him lift. I know that Tiny has obligations to other sponsors and his own line, but he made it a point to be there for Eric. In talking with Tiny, he is very impressed and totally floored with how Eric handled the weight. He wanted to let Eric know that when he's ready to go into equipment, give him a buzz. :) :) :) Eric, you just a lit a fire under Tiny's ass by the way. :) :) :)
