This is not correct. The body has plenty of fuel in the form of fat, but fat oxidation can only be used for oxidative activities -- generally speaking, light aerobic activities. Max deadlifts at 275# does not fall into this category, and most high intensity exercise lasting more than a few seconds is primarily glycolytic in nature. This type of activity will require an extraordinary amount of carbohydrates to fuel.
