It seems like Rich Piana always finds new ways to make the headlines. Obviously it’s not always for the good reasons. Recently, Rich Piana was involved in a controversy after he slapped an autistic bodybuilder named Jason Genova in the face at an IFBB expo.
But this time, it seems like the tables were turned on Rich Piana after a confrontation started at his booth between his 5% crew and a less-known bodybuilder crew composed of Wes “Mac Trucc” Boxley.
Mac Trucc ended up sucker punching Rich Piana in the jaw
In the following footage, we can witness a 5% member trying to go for it but he ended up getting jumped by 2 men.
Here’s what Mac Trucc’s crew had to say about the fight right after it happened.
For those of you who might be wondering who the hell is Mac Trucc, he used to be a member of the 5% nutrition crew until he decided it was time for him to move on. As he explained in this video, he viewed Rich Piana as a mentor and his departure caused no hard feelings in their relationship (according to Trucc at that time.)
If there was no hard feelings between the two bodybuilders, why did they end up fighting at the LA Fit expo?
Since then, Trucc uploaded another video on his youtube channel but with a very different opinion regarding Rich Piana. He admitted being very upset about him and wanted to expose the whole truth about the man and his company.
It’s now getting clearer why the tension rose between Rich Piana and Mac Trucc but it’s very unfortunate that it had to come down to this in such a crowded place. We still have to give it to Rich because he took the sucker punch like a champ and yelled to his friends to not chase Macc.
