Default Muscle vs Fat Loss - Fat Burning Efficiency?

Would a highly trained athlete lose a lower percentage of muscle & higher percentage of fat during a diet given that their muscles are more efficient at burning fat for fuel?

Or is this question just nonsense?

I think the more advanced your muscularity the bigger risk of muscle loss given same deficit for someone less trained. Just looking at top level natural bodybuilders who take half a year to 40 wks (jeff Alberts, Alberto nunez, brian Whitacre etc) to get stage ready vs lower level naturals who compete in tested and reasonably certain drug free feds.

The lower level guys don't reach the same level of conditioning b/c they don't diet long enough.
