Doubt it.

This study establishes that the highest lean body mass measured in non-drug users tops out at a certain level, getting beyond that takes drugs. (They got a higher level for pre-roid era bodybuilders, but weights are often exaggerated, and bodyfat was just estimated from photos.)

You may know of BMI, body mass index, which is Mass / Height x height. Well, take the fat away and you're left with the fat-free mass, with the same formula you get the FFMI. FFMI of more than 25 doesn't seem to be possible without drugs.

FFMI = lean mass / height x height
Lean mass = FFMI x height x height

Anyway, the guy is 1.86m tall. Given a max FFMI of 25, we get,
Max lean mass = 25 x 1.86 x 1.86 = 86.5kg = 191lbs

His weight is given as 142kg (313lbs). So if he had lean mass 191lbs, then he would be (313-191)/313 = 39% bodyfat. I don't think so.

He's more like 15% depending on the season. So he's ~266lbs (120kg) of lean mass. He has 60-70lbs more lean mass than he could attain naturally. FFMI of 34-35. No way he's natural.
