Hadi Choopan is looking to win his second consecutive show.

Hadi Choopan was victorious during the Arnold Classic just two weeks ago and will look to make it back-to-back in the UK. According to reports, Choopan has been issued his visa and will compete at the Arnold Classic UK this weekend.

Choopan was victorious after many years during the 2022 Olympia and considered the favorite once again back in November 2023. As the competition went on, it was clear that it was going to be a battle between Choopan and Derek Lunsford. Once the final came around, the judges opted for Lunsford as the 2023 Mr. Olympia champion.

Choopan brought an incredible package to the stage in Columbus just two weeks ago and many believe that it was his best ever. He was able to defeat reigning champion Samson Dauda and the two will face off once again.

Hadi Choopan Issued Visa For Arnold Classic UK

According to Persian Genetic on Instagram, Hadi Choopan has been issued his visa and will take the stage this weekend.

Despite the controversial defeat last year, where an improved Derek Lunsford narrowly surpassed him, Choopan remains undeterred. He’s already set on sculpting his physique for the upcoming 2024 Mr. Olympia, a title he is determined to claim. Notably, Choopan has already secured qualification by winning the championship in 2022 and maintaining a top-three placement last year.

Choopan will enter the 2024 Arnold Classic UK as the favorite to win the title and this will build momentum for the rest of the year. He might be qualified for the Olympia already but Choopan is not taking the time off. After the loss to Lunsford, he wants to return to the stage and get a win under his belt in 2024.
