Default Strength & Bodyweight Lifting Comparisons

OK I don't compete in P/Ling so I have to ask.

I was talking with a P/L on Face Book that just started to compete and keeps lean (retired bodybuilder) and he brought up how he thinks its a shame that in the sport a Example: 180 lbs guy can press per say 360 equaling 2x's his body weight but yet a 350lb guy presses 600 equaling 100lbs. less than 2x's his body weight but yet the guy pressing the 600 gets so much more attention?

All I could tell him was its ALL about the total numbers and nothing to do with body weight.

Is that about right? or am I way off base in my response?
