Chun and croga agus dilis, is feidir aon rud!!
Strong muscled Irish guy into submission wrestling with or without body strikes. Will go from competitive with experienced and big guys to practice matches and give and take with smaller guys. No formal training and always happy to learn from more experienced fighters. Always safe and sane....main priority is enjoyment for both guys in the match. Travel mainly in the UK.
Also very much like "real" gut punching sessions....exciting and hot! if anyone's interested let me know!!
Last few years have been quite a journey for me. Can honestly say they have been the best years of my life, professionally and personally. Many of you on here have played a big part in my enjoyment and I thank you all sincerely for that. But one man has come to mean everything to me...my Asian muscle Prince who showed me how to be truly happy, who has inspired me in the gym and in work, who I have grown to love deeply and who showers me with love in return. He is my one and my all....I owe you everything my handsome Prince!!

Had the chance to once again meet this superstar of MF at a recent private group meet at Pippa’s in Manchester. It was a humbling experience! I am sure that he has become even bigger and stronger…..but also remains an extremely safe and highly considerate opponent on the mats. This guy is probably the strongest wrestler I have ever tussled with, and unlike some guys he is strong in every department! Once he wrapped his long, powerfully muscled legs around me in a straight on rib-crusher, though I tried to resist for as long as possible (and I think I am also quite strong!) the sheer power exerted gradually increasing in intensity meant that I had to tap in the end in order to remain alive with ribs intact!! Awesome! As I noticed before, he has a symmetrical, very-muscled physique that seen from a distance or in some pics you might think is simply a good, solid, gym-honed body. But, when you meet him and see just how big he is the truth dawns that you are going to be in for a very challenging match! He is very experienced which also means that when he gets on top of you, it is going to be only with luck or kindness from him that you manage to reverse the situation. And he knows how to make himself seem twice as heavy as his actual weight! But…..he is such a charming and totally cooperative considerate man that he gave me a chance to work on him properly which I was very pleased to seize and exploit to the max. Hearing him groan and feeling him tap out from my scissors (which I had to crank on so hard I thought maybe my knee would blow) was a thrill! We both had great fun overall and my ribs are nearly back to normal now , a week later, hah hah!
Rarely have I met someone who is so concerned that everyone around has a good time and is very active in ensuring that actually happens. He lights up any room with cheery banter and good humour but is also a wonderfully engaging conversationalist with so many interesting things to say. Meet him if you get the opportunity!! Very highly recommended - despite his immense strength and size he is totally safe and knows how to work with lighter opponents. Overall, an outstanding ambassador for MF and the sport.
I had wanted to meet this man for such a long time! Why had it not happened? Well....that doesn't matter now. It was a total blast to wrestle with Celticmuscle!
When you first see him from a little distance you might think 'wow - what a handsome and well proportioned athletic looking man'. But as he draws nearer you realise...he's bloody enormous! A fantastic, well developed, thickly muscled physique which is very well balanced. He has everything...big wide shoulders, powerful arms, deep chest and those legs! Phew! Once you stand alongside him you begin to think.....'Oh oh oh, what the hell am I getting into here?'. On the mats you have to be prepared to cope with an immensely strong guy who once he is on top of you will be very hard work to shift. But it's very enjoyable work, I have to say! Very enjoyable indeed!! What's not to like about trying to escape and overturn a strong handsome superstar of a man who is well sprawled on top of you? I am not a small guy, but CM makes me look like a bit of a kid! When I did finally manage to lock my legs around his neck I enjoyed sooooo much grinding out a tap or two....but I think it was only him being somewhat generous that facilitated that. We had great fun. He is safe, extremely considerate and clearly wants his opponents to enjoy encounters. A very evident strong sense of humour - he is as likely to burst into hearty laughter as he is to demand that you quit. A great wrestler and a man who I would very much like to count as a new friend. I wish we had met years ago! Do not miss him if you get the opportunity! A huge pleasure to meet him!
2022 and what a way to celebrate my first post ‘Covid era’ return to the mats, another chance to get on the mats with this amazing guy. An incredible physique that looks like it’s sculpted from granite, and a super intelligent articulate guy to enjoy food and drink with. On the mats I was eager to experience the power in his tree trunk legs and he didn’t disappoint, demonstrating a range of head scissors variations that crushed me. His muscles are big, hard and very powerful. A great guy and an incredible athlete. He just gets better and better. Bring on the next round.
First match - The word 'legend' is used quite a bit to describe long standing members on MF. In terms if longevity Davey def qualifies as a legend, but my word on every other measure he qualifies as well. What a physique!! What skills!! What a great personality!!! I waited a long time to meet this gent and it was def worth the wait. A seriously nice guy in every respect. Even with an injured leg his power was amazing, and man does he know how to punish lol (all in a very controlled and safe way btw). Do not pass up an opportunity to meet this man. True legends are hard to find....this one is one of the few. Would wrestle him every day if I could!!
The Tiger & the Bear
Met this big affable charming Irishman the other day & had one of the best wrestles of my 7 year career. Its like a wrestling a big friendly Tiger, but a hungry Tiger that wants its tea, NOW...and your dish of the day....🐯Totally safe & sane & a def recommendation.
Can't believe it almost 6 years since I last tangled with the Celtic Tiger.
One of the toughest strongest and most determined wrestlers I have ever encountered. Possibly the best European heavyweight
We battled for ages neither able to take the other down. But eventually I was trapped in truly magnificent and skull crushing headlock applied with lighting speed the memory of which is still horribly vivid nearly 24
hours later! But I hasten to add you will be perfectly safe with him
Off the mats Gerry is charm and generosity personified ( Along with Davey123 he kindly paid for dinner) and a born raconteur who has lived a full and interesting life. If you get the chance to wrestle him jump at it.
10 years after our first meeting got to tangle with Ireland's finest once again.
Last time felt I came close to toppling him. No chance this time ....Cannot believe how strong he is!! Was , pinned, crushed armbarred, body scissored (so tight I nearly threw up)!
He looks the best I have ever seen him glowing with health, great arms, legs, and tits, filling his well cut singlet to perfection!
As always friendly humorous, good natured life and soul of the party, perfect gentleman, cracking jokes with a lovely Feargal Keene type Irish brogue. He is probably the top British and Irish heavyweight,
maybe on this form the (meetfighters) world?
As always a pleasure.
🇮🇪 V 🇬🇧
2022 It’s been quite a while since I last locked up with this beast. Still big, still powerful but now topped off with copious flowing locks of thick hair. As a confirmed baldy I hate him just for this alone…lol. As always he’s a great guy on and off the mats and we had a short but enjoyable roll. Always a pleasure to meet this big guy.
Tanker by name and Tanker by nature!! Trying t take this beast down is like to chop down a 200 year old oak tree with a blunt axe... not easy and will sap u of energy!! Such a strong man. But such a nice guy (off the mats...lol). On the mats be prepared to be tested big time. Off the mats be prepared for an articulate interesting guy who u can feel instantly comfortable with. Looking forward to many more encounters with him!!!
A big powerful man, great to grapple with. very good attitude and sense of humour. Didn't get as much time with tanker as I wud have liked this time but that will be fixed next time. Def positive recommendation!!
Met this tank of a guy and honestly nicest guy, until he's throwing you around! Tried to put up a fight buy was just his jobber in the end! Will definitely meet again great guy to wrestle with!!!
This is one great athlete! All muscle, fit as a fiddle, and fearless on the mats. Skilled and tough and a challenge for any man regardless of size. Don’t let the beguiling smile fool you into underestimating the demon that lurks within! 😉
Met Celticmuscle at a meet last night in Manchester, we had wrestle in the ring a 2 v 1 match, super strong we could not hardly get any holds on him, was great fun,very friendly guy, highly recommended
This evil bast**d teamed up with Robert England to work me over in a 2 v 1 match. He knows his scissors very well and applied head scissors after head scissors. A great fun experience with two great guys. We all sweated buckets so I like to think I made them work hard for their prize…..lol. A lovely guy whose love for wrestling shone though from start to finish.
Time constraints at a recent group meet meant some mats time with this guy wasn’t possible, but we did manage a quick arm wrestle test. His sheer size is intimidating on first sight, and it’s obvious he has immense power in his beefy body. Incredibly masculine, but such a nice genuine guy who puts you instantly at ease in his presence. Really looking forward to getting him on the mats in a future match and feeling his power for real.
When he walked though the door and shook my hand I thought "big guy!... O..K.."
When he changed and came into the mat room in his vest I thought "Oh shit!" (he has one hell of a physique).
When we locked up then I genuinely thought "Oh f**k!!!!"
This guy has the physique, size, strength, power, moves and technique but above all a great attitude! I hope that we get to grapple many more times and guys - take this as an A+++ recommendation! A champ both on and off the mats, great bloke!
Met up again after a long layoff, what can I say, he's just as strong, just as big, and still manages to get me on my back being defensive rather than controlling (damn that's annoying!). A great guy, great to roll with and makes me even more determined to hit the gym harder and practice on the mats more. Total 100% recommendation - an opportunity not to be missed if he's in your locale!
Met up after the long COVID years again on 21/09/2022, still no change - he's one guy that I just cannot beat or get any upper hand with. I'd forgotten just how strong his grip and forearms are, and indeed just how tough he is. But you know what? If you know you have no chance just enjoy the moment cos there aren't that many guys are gonna be able to do it but this guy can! Brilliant time on that mats and hope it isn't 3 years till the next time! A++** recommendation!
This is one man who didn’t get lazy through the Covid years. He was always a massive specimen but he’s now in the best condition I’ve ever seen him. Tall, huge, and so much defined muscle now. Between the two of us we’re not far off quarter of a ton in weight so the mats room took a bit of punishment as we tested each other….lol. Physical is every bit as strong as he looks, a powerhouse but so safe and a total gent on and off the mats. You won’t find a nicer, stronger big guy to wrestle. A+++++ from me
It was so great to see this giant again! Still as big as a tank, still as strong as f**k...but still possessed of such a disarming smile and a wonderful presence. We had a great power roll and enjoyed very much every sweaty second of it. I hope this is the start of the big guy coming back into more wrestling meets as he is always such a great guy to roll with. Would seek him out every time as he is such a joy to roll with.
I've admired this mans profile from afar for quite a while and meeting him in person confirmed all that he seemed. A truly great guy, massively muscled and strong, coupled with a great sense of humour and attitude. I cud roll with this guy all day every day and enjoy every second of it. He is a true gentleman wrapped in an incredible and powerful physique. Completely safe on the mats, I would really recommend that you give this great guy a grapple if the opportunity arises!! I'll be back for lots more!!
Aug 2019 Singapore
Celticmuscle is always the few in MF that gave me the toughest fight I want & there is no exception this time. Even both of us have the sore knees, we still gave each other a very good fight. I had got him into few submissions & he got me back some.
& Yes, the results are always clear & expected - he made me submitted more than I made him!! He is still leading the score!
& Yes, I always look forward to having a rematch again!
Mar 2019 Singapore
As I missed meeting Celticmuscle on his last visit, but as promised, he took few hours of time off when visiting with his muscle Prince to meet me this trip while I'm in Singapore.
He is few of those that can always give me the toughest fight that I want, & beat me in a decent way. Again, it's a big Vs small match. I had utilised all my guards against him, but he still managed to pass my guard & gave me few headlocks that I can't escape.
Luckily & unluckily, the match didn't last long as he needs to rush back to meet his muscle Prince.
Looking forward to having more & more tough fight with him in the future
Meeting Celticmuscle is always a great pleasure. This time the fight was even tougher. We didn't give each other an easy match & we used all method to exhaust each other's stamina. This was not only a fight of strength but stamina as well.
Once we have exhausted each other's stamina, the real fight came in. Celticmuscle still have an edge over me at the end & made me into full submission. However, this fight had really tired both of us. It was fabulous!
I look forward to our rematch in future as that will be an even tougher fight for both of us.
There are so many words I want to describe about Celticmuscle: Great body, great shape, great fighting skills, great strength & stamina, great personality. Lovely match!
He is a person that you'd love to wrestle with at your first sight. He has a gorgeous body that everyone admired. His wrestling skills is far above the word "amateur". He locked me into different positions which made me very difficult to escape or counterattack, despite how hard I tried. I managed to escape few times, but he easily caught me into another choke sooner.
This man is a giant, but very friendly & approachable off the mat.
We exchanged holds several times, but he is too good to fight. I submitted countless rounds & only managed to win one round by "cheating".
If there're any complaints on this match, I'd say, this match is too short (only 1.5hr) & too early (7am in the morning & we hadn't had our breakfast).
Highly recommend to fight this great gentleman when he is at your place.
One of the most memorable match for me in this year.
My visits to Singapore are always activity & fun filled, and every match with Alan can be described in those terms as well. This match was shorter than either of us would have liked due to my other commitments this time, but it was a couple of hours of hard fought grappling. His ongoing BJJ training continues to show as in every match he shows such progress. His physique is testament to his dedication to stay fit and strong, and his sheer niceness as a person shines through. Personal circumstances mean I will be visiting much more frequently in the future and I am really looking forward to fighting this great guy again and again.
Our last match in Singapore starter very early in the morning and we both decided we would start much later this time....only to end up with yet another early breakfast start...lol. What hasn't changed is this guys super energy and desire on the mats. His skill level has continued to go up notch by notch and size difference alone becomes a much reduced advantage. His fit muscled body and great stamina are a credit to him, he proves us oldies can still do the job if we go and try. Such a lovely guy to meet, a heart of gold and a most welcoming man. It's always a pleasure to roll with him and I look forward to many more matches on my visits to Singapore.
This man is a dynamo. An early morning match saw him bound in full of energy and raring to go. He is lean and strong and has some pretty good mat skills. Incredibly tough guy who can take a lot....and dish it out.....a wonderful personality who u can feel comfortable with immediately. Anyone passing thru Singapore should definitely put this man on their list of meets.....just be prepared to work and sweat a lot!!!
one of the very first guys i ever wrestled! kicked my ass in Cork 20 years ago, then rematched with him 10 years later in UK. Had a blast both times! He's really strong and has tons of endurance. He's a riot off the mats and I hope some day to have a third battle!
First met this beast many years ago as he studied in cork and he was already a formidable bodybuilder with incredible mass and muscle density. On that occasion his newness to wrestling gave me the advantage. 10 years later he reappeared as a simply massive mountain of muscle with a lot of formal MMA training under his belt to exact revenge.
A feast for the eyes if you’re into muscle, and a warrior on the mats. But a true gent in all ways. Would get on the mats every day with this man if I could. One of the best!
I met Celtic for the first time yesterday and was so impressed when he walked through the door, tall, broad at the shoulders, fit and fearful. Huge biceps too. We had a great tussle and I’m feeling, it in such a good way, on the body today. Great sweaty work out. He’s powerful and will take some beating but a sound nice guy too. Looking forward to next time :-)
It’s been such a long time since I’ve had a match and this man provided such a great return to action for me. A really nice guy with some good power to back up his pre-match banter..lol. The soreness I’m feeling today is testament to both his stamina and power as well as to my body having to move in ways that it hasn’t moved in almost two years….lol. It was great to get back into action and great thanks to this super guy for making it such an enjoyable match.
As much as it pains me to say Celtic is the absolute infinite fella when it comes to strong wrestlers. Been meeting for over a decade and never got hurt or damaged. He’s a full on gent that has always challenged and owned me in an armwrestle. Great physique, ace fella, admire him loads and can’t wait to turn the tables on him soon. 👍
Have had the great pleasure of meeting this massive man many times over the years. Every meet remains special as, like me, he is really into male strength, arm wrestling, wrestling, flexing etc. His physical stature is impressive and intimidating and his power is evident from the first seconds of locking up with him. Our battles have been real tests of power and stamina, and all of them have been so enjoyable and memorable. A huge powerhouse with a heart as big as his physique, and an incredibly nice personality. A true gent!!
I can only echo what has been written about him, this god like man is nothing short of perfection. He's a huge sexy super stud, a muscle beast. He looked very impressive, especially after he took everything off. I felt pretty helpless during our match. He pretty much worked me over from start to finish. Tried as many dirty tricks as I could, but none worked.
An embarrassing late recommendation for this great muscled fighter. Had a hotel match when on my Asian travels and it was hot due to the local temperature and made even hotter when this man took off his top to reveal a truly wonderful physique. Very strong guy who showed just how strong he is. My extra weight ultimately gave me the advantage but he gave as good as he got and made the difference in weight seem a lot less than it actually was. Would gladly roll with this guy again.
After a good few months of chatting I’ve finally met this mountain of a man. We both turned up to the mats and within seconds we were going it is. I didn’t know how our meet will pan out. I knew this guy is strong and built but it wasn’t until both his arms were wrapped around my body that I realised that he really is strong.
I banked on me exhausting him the first half of the match on the hope that my stamina will do the work in the second half. I didn’t have a choice but to defend his constant attacks.
I’d like to think I contributed to exhausting him initially (I didn’t). The stop start hindered me taking advantage of him.
Guys, Do not underestimate this man, he is a great guy on and off the mats.
I enjoyed the match with him thoroughly and very much look forward to our next meet where I hope we both get to demonstrate what we’re both really are made of. Come and try me again old man ;). Waiting impatiently.
I’d like to be able to write that this guys growing reputation is exaggerated, but after being pretty soundly beaten by him I have to add my voice to his increasingly good reputation. From the get go I found my tank emptying quickly while this mans stamina showed no sign of waning. His Defence is like a turtles as he hunkers down to ride out most attacks. He was gracious enough between rounds to allow me to gather my energy and breath which allowed me win a few rounds but in truth if he pushed the pace as he was entitled to do it would have been an even more comprehensive defeat for me. With my tank drained and his dominance in the ascendency he proceeded to work me over in multiple head scissors and chokes.....a situation I hated and loved in equal measure...lol. This man is a warrior through and through. On top of it all he is incredibly nice, and a very safe and sane fighter. Underestimate him at ur peril but by no means pass up the chance to meet him, he epitomises what MF should be all about. A worthy winner and now I have a new target to seek revenge in the future.....a threat which I made to him and which he met with a smirk that just yelled out “come and try old man”. It’s a challenge I can't wait to risk again!!
I met Celticmuscle at Walthamstow, he is good wrestler and fighter with lots of skill and technique and despite his weight advantage we still had a great wrestling match. Off the mats Celticmuscle is a big hearted wonderful man with a great sense of humour. I would certainly love to do some more wrestling with Celticmuscle and his recommendations are well deserved.
Had the chance to meet this super guy at a group meet in Walthamstow. Despite a large size advantage in my favor this fearless warrior had no hesitation in calling me out. Once we locked up it was clear this man had some real training and experience backing him up. Skilled, tough, determined, he has it all. A really enjoyable few rounds complemented by some great conversation and jokes. And a huge thank you to him for attending to a bloody sore leg injury I picked up soon after our match....he has a healing touch!
The legendary Celticmuscle had already proven he’s a badass...at making coffee. I’d dropped in to visit him en route home from Barnet mat room once months back. This time however, I dropped in for a wrestle instead. And - shock of shock - he was just as much a badass today as he was before.
We agreed a lighter roll around given the lack of mats; plus I was feeling a bit whimpy following a punishing triceps session at the gym a day or so before.
Not that it would have made much difference. Celtic even at reduced flux barely broke a sweat as he punished me and had me almost entirely on the defence. Once he locks on (something he does unerringly and with a Terminator-like manner) it’s almost impossible to get him off.
Thankfully my defence is fairly tight - however not tight enough to prevent numerous submissions to him. For my part, I had the chance just once to wrangle a sub back but wasn’t able to - barely denting his formidable form. I tried my scissors a few times and much to our mutual mirth, Celtic just laughed them off. He is easily up there as one of two strongest wrestlers I’ve met. Yikes!
He’s a terrific guy, makes killer coffees and is more than a force to be reckoned with, even on a lighter roll around. Take him on - I dare you! Question is, do I have the courage / stupidity to take him on more competitively?!
What can I add to everything else that has been said about this man. Anyone who knows of the Arrow knows his dedication to his gym work. He has a very scientific approach to his training but its only when you see him in the flesh you get to fully appreciate how much muscle mass this man packs.
Over a coffee and conversation you realize how intelligent this guy is but once he steps on the mats the competitive beast in him lets loose.
We agreed a lighter type match given space and some injury concerns, but if this is him in a light match then I dread to think how hard he would be to handle in a full on battle. Great defensive work especially with his tree trunk legs, and a damn tuff guy even when put in some painful holds.
A true pleasure in every way to meet this man, great physique, attitude, humor and fighting spirit. Would highly recommend to any guy looking for the best of what MF is here to offer.
Can’t wait for next round!
He is realy big muscle master....wanna revenge with him...was rough match...
Had the opportunity to meet this great guy while stopping over in Istanbul. Everything about this man says “masculinity”. He is a powerfully built muscle guy. What is also very clear is that this man comes to fight. From the start he came at me with incredible determination and aggression. His body punches come thick and fast and damn they are powerful. A real power battle ensued where no quarter was asked for or given. He is also a very safe fighter and a model of decency off the mats. In short a fighters fighter on the mats and a gentleman off them. Highly recommended.
Singapore, a bit like Ireland, may not be regarded as a place where you can find many guys to wrestle but it does throw up a few diamonds every now and then. Having started this visit with yet another match against one local muscle beast, I had the real & unexpected pleasure of meeting yet another local muscle beast cut from the same cloth. And what a diamond he turned out to be also. Weighing in at 90kgs, most of which is muscle, this young guy is an imposing presence when shirtless. Legs that simply look like tree trunks and an impressively muscled upper body one would do well not to underestimate his power. "It's years since I did judo" he told me, but it was clear from the get go that whatever he learned way back then he learned very well. Great defensive and offensive moves coupled with his amazing strength made this a wonderful challenge. A thoroughly enjoyable match and one that I hope to replicate every time I come here in the future. Off the mats he really shines as a truly decent man, intelligent, articulate and great fun to chat to. If you intend to visit this great place then reach out to this man, you will not regret it.
As I write this from my hospital bed I can only think how nice it was of Celtic to completely destroy me and still give me some credit! Of course I am joking - Celtic is wrestling royalty and acts as such with dignity even when he is crushing you. Always felt safe ... ish lol and next time would be great to get some tips ! PS I didn’t watch videos - it’s called survival!
Really great guy fab conversationalist and thankfully laughed a few times at my jokes !
Happy and honoured to add to long list of recommendations.
This man is a relative newbie to MF but his inexperience did not stop him from deploying some very good natural defensive instincts....methinks some youtube video's have shown him some moves!! Even against a man with a big weight advantage he didn't flinch once and he proved a pretty tough nut to crack. He can also withstand quite a bit of pressure before tapping! All in all a great guy, extremely welcoming and nice, articulate and with a great sense of humour. With more matches he'll only improve!!
If you get the chance fellas meet this beast !! A massive chest and biceps to match he’s an intimidating force to encounter.
An utter gent before and after and the fine Cork accent doesn’t do any harm either !!
Beware the power and would like to see him take down an opponent ......
I’d have walked it if it wasn’t for the height difference lol ;-)
Arrived for this match to find this man all decked out in his gear and ready for immediate action, so a clear declaration of intent was evident....grrrr.....lol. This guy is a self declared striker with a secondary grappling preference and so it proved as my extra size and experience on the grappling front proved decisive on the mats. Once we went to striking mode he showed what a great puncher he is as he targeted my pecs with some very well placed and powerful strikes. My pecs haven't been tested like that in quite a while and we both seemed to really enjoy those exchanges. His rugby background shows in his overall power and great legs! If you can't take a good punch then this guy may prove to be a step too far for some, but if u enjoy a good old fashioned stand up brawl with a great puncher then this is a "go to" guy. Completely safe at all times and has that typical "gobby" English sense of humour, capped off with a great smile.
August 2018: finally after such a long time we got to roll again . We had a phenomenal session .... 3 muscled guys wrestling ! He’s still one of the best fighters you can get here . Strong , skilled and he can give and take a lot of punishment ! As I told in the meet today “ Gery is the one fighter I trust completely to be able to go as rough and competitive as we can”. This is true not only that I can test assure he can take it but that he’s a very loyal and respectful oponent and I know he will always end a fight with a good hug and a handshake ! Now my friend open challenge for our next match ! Old school Ireland vs Brazil war ! He’s amazing and I’m proud call him a true friend !Fully recommended!
Mach 3: the long awaited rematch to settle a feud and war was declared .. We both wanted to be clear who the champion was and war was declared ! We both previously agreed to meet at 108 kg for a mma fight and we both came to it at our top condition . When we stepped in the ring things got nasty and brutal but we had a very balanced fight and after 3 hours of an intense combat we came to a draw. Feud still not settled but both fighters exhausted but within profound respect for each other . THIS IS GUY IS FULLY RECCOMENDED!
Had the chance to meet this beast for second match .... And what a combat it was ! It was literally war from the second we stepped into the mats . His power is impressive ..... Though this time he dominated the fight , I managed to reverse and give him a KO! Outside the mats he idea great friend and the best company to go out for dinner and drinks ! Now let's train for out third combat !
Met this beast for a great match! Submission , body punching, nhb mma.... This beast took it all and it was a real battle! This time, the victory was his, but both of us finished the war completely devastated and soar! Every moment I do find a new bruise in my body!
It has been a while since I last locked up with this big guy but when the opportunity to meet him again along with Grindmscl for a three man meet I was thrilled.
As all who have previously met Ricardo can attest he is a big man, powerfully built and powerfully strong, and if anything he was even more so on both counts this time. As usual our rounds became sweat soaked battles of power, grunting, groaning and all the good things associated with this sport. He is a tank of a man with an engine that doesn't tire. Any man expecting an "easy" time with this guy on the mats will soon be disabused of that notion, he comes to fight and he fights hard! Incredibly safe and considerate, every round with him is a great experience and no match ends without knowing and feeling that you have been in a true battle, but a very enjoyable one. If you want to be truly tested on the mats then meet him!!
Had an awesome time meeting with celticmuscle. His pics do not do him justice. He is a big muscle guy who knows how to wrestle. He is also an extremely nice guy off the mats and has great conversation over a few pints following the match. Highest recommendation if you ever get the chance to meet this gentle giant.
This beast might not be as hairy as the infamous Yeti but he's certainly as big as one! 100kgs of power which is launched at u with intent on the mats. This man wrestles to win but is incredibly safe as he shows u how powerful he is. Luckily for me he is more at home with collegiate rather than submission styles right now but that will change rapidly as he gains moire matches and experience. A thoroughly enjoyable encounter that married power with fun. Off the mats an incredibly nice, polite and intelligent guy in whose dinner company the time simply flies by. I certainly hope his work commitments bring him back to the Emerald isle many times in the future so we can repeat the experience.
Jerry is a really kind and really strong man. Off the mat he is a real gentleman,on the mat he is a real beast. Thanks for everything!
The Hungarian beast came to take my arm wrestling crown and on first viewing he brought the right tools to do the job....this man has BIG arms!! What followed was one of the strongest challenges I have had arm wrestling so far, the guy is strong!! A bit of low intensity wrestling followed due to compactness of room, which was very enjoyable. A really nice guy, polite and friendly.....but if ur gonna challenge him at arm wrestling then make sure u bring ur A game!!! Would happily meet this great guy again.
celticmuscle has improved from the last time i have meet and wrestle him, he gotten huge and more stronger too, he had me submitted after few minutes, put me through countless armbars, technical submission moves, headscissors, body scissors where sometimes i felt like if my ribs will concave any minutes!
most of the times i am in his chokes, though not blood chokes, more of air chokes due to his massive arm, he can immobilise me with one arm around my neck, feeling my strength drained during struggling to gasp for air, a few camel clutches in the middle.
bottom line, celticmuscle was my muscle master in that last meet, a charging beast on the mats but a gentleman on the outside
a major oversight on my part in not realising before now that I omitted to write this guy a rec!! My apologies to him for that as he is very deserving of one.
I have wrestled this guy a few times now and he is an impressive beast to behold. His legs are truly amazing in size and shape and they are required to support an upper body of true bodybuilder proportions.
An excellent guy on the mats who can turn on the power as easily as he can play the role of the muscle jobber. In all ways he goes out of his way to make the meet as enjoyable for his opponent as possible and I can truly say I enjoyed every minute on the mats with this beast.
If you have the chance to meet him then take it!....especially if rolling with a pure muscle beast with a great attitude is your thing!
I am lucky due to Celticmuscle cane 2 days at my home. I was more than happy to met him. He is a very strong guy, always ask more game on mats but very safe and sane. When he is on top it was very difficult to escape to his so strong arms. We had lot of fun in mat, lot of sweat, lot of good time.
Outside mat he is a very friendly guy. Easy to have good discussions, good drink as 2 friends
Hope we can meet again soon
Any man on MF with over 200 past opponents can rightly be regarded as a man with fighting blood in his veins, and AD_idf represents the epitome of what it is to be such a warrior.
Stepping onto the mats with him is educational on so many levels. Firstly it makes you realise all too quickly how limited your own skill level is compared to these dedicated warriors who live and train BJJ/wrestling etc. This man’s awareness and movement on the mats is truly inspiring. Competitive action followed by some training, and what a teacher this man is. Patient and understanding coupled with a demonstration style that really highlights his willingness and desire to pass on skills to the less fortunate like me. At some points in the training I believed he must have 6 limbs rather than 4 such was his speed and skill, legs and arms flowing from move to move with precision and agility.
Anyone looking to test his skills will find AD_idf the perfect opponent, lesser skilled guys will love what he can teach them.
An incredibly gracious man who I would recommend 100% and who I would meet over and over again if that bloody channel wasn’t standing between us!
He is smart,big, strong and very kind. The perfect balance between a competitive monster and a gentle lord on and off the mats. I had great moments wrestling with Celticmuscle and surely I'd like to meet him much more times. If you have the opportunity to meet him, don't lose the opportunity.
Wow, smaller but fearless and a real challenge. Blue belt BJJ standard and wildly flexible, I didn't realise legs could bend that much....lol. This is a true fighter possessed of impressive skills and s warriors attitude. Hotel room match not the ideal venue for him to show his full array of skills so can't wait to meet him on mats in the future. A truly nice guy on and off the mats and s must meet if the opportunity arises.
Couldn't believe I built up the courage and determination to take on this beast of a wrestler, but after the months of long smack talk and taunting I was on for it! Despite my training and tutilage I don't think I was aptly prepared for this monster of a fight. Safe to say I put up a fight, but there was just no way I could surpass this mountain of muscle. One hell of a wrestler! He just looks, talks and walks like a pro and just looks great towering over you in sweat! New personal target to take this guy down and I am determined to do it!
The last time I met this guy he vowed to come back and get some revenge for the outcome. Well he eventually hunted me down and we met for the much anticipated rematch. Stripping down to fight gear it was very obvious this guy has spent a lot of time in the gym since our last encounter, muscled and fit!! And then the predatory look in his eyes made it quite clear he wasn't here to mess around. A bloody hard battle ensued and this mans BJJ skills are really great....how can anyone be THAT flexible...lol. What started off as a standard sub match ended up as something akin to an oil match with pools of sweat pumping from us both as the intensity of this battle grew. In my mind this match epitomised what wrestling should be, manly & masculine, two guys battling for dominance, all in a really competitive but safe manner. At the end we were both wasted but entirely satisfied we had given our all. This young beast is a star of the wrestling world. If you want to be tested and experience what it is to fight a really well skilled guy then hit him up. Along with his skill and muscle u also get a truly nice respectful guy who makes the entire meet so enjoyable. Can't wait for the next time!
This young man has strength, skill and determination. His BJJ training is evident from the start. He's a very methodical and intelligent fighter, you can see him working his next moves out. The guy is fearless but he gives a great battle on the mats. He fights safely and with great attitude, and must surely be one of the best in his weight class. Thoroughly enjoyed meeting and fighting him and wouldn't hesitate to meet him again. All that coupled with his great looks, body and personality. Challenge this man if u want a true challenge!!
Well, the recomendations are already in place for this gentleman!
All in all a true fighter, packaged inside a lot of muscles.
He submits you, over and over, and he does it with an intense and agressive glow in his eyes. I know it, because I do the same (when I get a chance)!
If you are looking for a real and intense still all safe and sane encounter, this is your man.
Off the mats he is very hospital and holds a great conversation!
We had a great battle, even if it was a cat and mouse game!
Thanks a lot! Woof!
Had the great pleasure to meet this fighter as part of three way meet, along with Fitguy2. This guy looks like a fighter, and its clear from the passionate way he speaks about it that fighting is a big part of his life. His enthusiasm is infectious. This man is articulate and very interesting and modest to talk to, and then he transitions into a fighting beast on the mats. His skill level becomes obvious instantly, his use of legs in defensive work is of a very high standard. He can punch and he can take a punch, and the more he takes the more he feeds off the energy of it all. A skilled, safe and sane fighter who will test any challenger hard. Watching him and Fitguy2 battle was akin to watching two chess masters at play...lol. A thoroughly enjoyable meet and one which I hope we can repeat in the future. A+++ recommendation!!!
Update May 2016: We met again. :)
Celtic is bigger and stronger than ever and still the perfect gentleman. He always wrestles safe and sane so don´t let his size intimidate you. Hope to see you soon, muscle giant!
Finally I had a match with this fab guy. It was very intense and even ruff at times and I have to say, the hotel room wasn´t big enough for the two of us! ;-) I think everything is said about his power. At last a guy my size. ---> 11/10! cu soon, m8!
Was such a pleasant surprise to run into this beast in Singapore recently. Unfortunately his very limited time passing thru and his desire to sight see on his first visit to this beautiful city meant we skipped any wrestling and instead put ourselves in the capable hands of Our tour guide Muscldfighter, who was also passing thru, visiting some of the city's sights. A great afternoon just reinforced how nice a guy this big man truly is, he attracted quite a few looks in Singapore given his size when compared to the local average...lol....needless to say we did not fear being mugged with the big man in tow...lol. Now my main problem is how to go into any future matches against him with a mean look and streak given that it is impossible not to like this guy so much after u meet and spend time with him. A gentleman in every sense and a guy def worth meeting!!
Was a good while since our last fight but not much has changed, he is still a powerful, huge man, but with such a great attitude. Safe and sane on the mats, a true gentleman off them. Thank you so much for your incredible hospitality and for a great meet. Deffo want to meet this beast again and again!
Met this HUGE man for a fight in Vienna. He has a huge physical presence....a true Austrian oak...and as strong as he looks, with good skills as well. Was a great and enjoyable encounter....and a very nice guy off the mats too. He gives lie to the saying that the "best things come in small packages"...lol...Wud def recommend for a meet, and wud really like to meet him again....but in a bigger and emptier space than a hotel room next time...LOL...Thnx big man for a great match!!
very strong irishman.. deceptively too - he's MUCH stronger than he looks- a musclemonster! Armwrestle him at your own peril :)
Great guy like all Paddies are.. and a wrestling hulk too! Travels frequently to UK - a must meet if he's in your vicinity
I have seen this man a number of times a year for many years. What was never in doubt was his skill & power level which is very high. And every year his physical development has improved and he now commands immediate attention when he strips to fighting shorts. Amazingly muscled physique. What has never changed is his natural modesty and humility. For any guy who might be intimidated by his physique and reputation u can rest easy. He is a very considerate wrestler and will never seek to cause injury or humiliation. He is very considerate of novice wrestlers, and is more than happy to teach and pass on skills. He will wrestle with any man, irrespective of age, shape, skill level, so if the opportunity arises grab it both hands.
I've had the great pleasure to meet Joe on a number of occasions, and can say without doubt that he is one of the most genuine guys that anyone could meet. A true unassuming gentleman off the mats. On the mats Joe is a very skilled, and very strong & muscled fighter. Incredible strength (physical and mental), loves his fighting and approaches it with a great attitude. Completely safe and trustworthy, and very patient with lesser skilled opponents (aka ME). No matter the difference in skill levels you will definitely enjoy a fight with this man!! Very highly recommended!
It was amazing to meet this gentleman. He is strong like a bull, got very good submission technique. His scissors wrestling technique is great and difficult to escape. It was very difficult to me (with 72kg) hold him with 104kg of pure muscles.i'm highly recommend you guys to have a roll with him. He is also, a very good friendly guy outside matts.
Had a great meet with this Brazilian jiu Jitsu guy. Restricted space and a recovering broken thumb on his side reduced the intensity somewhat but it is very obvious this is a skilled practitioner, especially his defensive leg movement. This guy loves testing your abs with well placed punches....he sure knows where the solar plexus is anyway...lol. A truly nice guy with great sense of humour, and a great conversationalist off the mats. Gotta say his accent adds wonderfully to the conversation too. He has challenged me to a Gi match on mats...I sense the Spider enticing the insect into its web...lol
I'm on the train home writing out lines like in detention at school:
I must not pick fights with the big boys
I must not pick fights with the big boys
I must not pick fights with the big boys
I must not pick fights with the big boys
I had a great time with this beast of a man. He man handled me. Completely!
I will ache tomorrow.
This was a real last minute match.....we both found ourselves by pure coincidence in the same hotel travelling on business. Needless to say the choice between a match and another boring evening in a hotel wasn't hard to make...lol. This guy has a such a typically great sense of Newcastle humour with a very intriguing glint in his eyes. We had a blast. I would def meet with this guy again. Articulate, tough, fit, funny....a great guy to meet and wrestle.
Massive guy 💪 Strongest fella I have ever come across on the site to date. The guy can defo dominate a match - but is sensible enough to make it safe throughout. Genuinelyniice guy with no drama.
Defo interested in a second match sometime.
Wow, what a blast! I opened the door and this behemoth of a man glared at me....and that is quite the intimidating sight I can tell you. This man is BUILT....huge delts and arms, and wrists/forearms that look like they belong on a world class arm wrestler. Onto the mats and this mans power became very evident. We battled like two bulls and every second was a draining exercise. At the end we were both drained of energy but both very satisfied that we had endured a real close battle of two big lads. To say this was a good experience is a massive understatement. This guy oozes power and size but combines it all with a great personality and sense of humour. I hope this will be the first of many battles in the future.
Big. Strong. Skilled. Gives good hard tough fight. Had to fight injured because of circumstances/timing. Real fight next time.
Kudo's to this guy. We had been trying to arrange s match for quite a while and he decided to meet me even though he is still in recovery mode from a painful leg injury. That tough by nature attitude was matched physically. He turned up and got straight to business and came at me hard. Very tough guy who likes it real. Enjoyed every minute of our fight. He can take and dish out a lot. Would love to fight him again if the opportunity presents itself. A safe, sane fighter but one who will test u hard!
Because this guy is a major class act he forgot to mention on his great recommendation how he utterly owned me today ! But it was sheer pleasure to be vested by a guy who is clearly superior , in every sense ! We had a great time rolling a lot of give and take ; I was giving out s Lot snd he was taking all my taps !,.,, lol ... it’s been one of the most wonderful experiences I’ve had on this site ! Yes there are pics ! Yes he does the skimpiest gear and yes he looked spectacular through all of it ! I couldn’t do much but on top of everything this guy is s true champion and the KINDEST GUY around too! Can’t simply recommend enough !!! He is the ultimate wrestling experience and he can fullfill any fantasy sport or fleeting you might have in the underground wrestling circuit ! One of the highlights for sure of my stay and def looking forward to cross paths with him yet again !.... soon !
When I heard this beast was in the vicinity and had the good fortune that he reached out to me with a challenge I kinda thought Christmas had come early....lol.....His profile is impressive as are his pictures but seeing him in person truly brings the sheer size of this mans limbs into perspective. His arms and legs are truly huge!! Finding out he is a blue belt BJJ practitioner only serves to increase the sense of foreboding even more. However once you lock up with this beast you find a strong, skilled man who wrestles to enjoy. His power is obvious, but at all times he is conscious of his opponent and a safer and more fun wrestler would be hard to find. A really interesting guy to converse with and a man whose company would be enjoyed by anyone for hours. I just wish I had more time to socialise with him but alas time was against us. I would def meet this man again and again!!
Had a short but tough match with this guy. Built like a bull and tenacious on the mats.
He went at my pace and level and was good enough to pass on a few, much needed, tips.
Happy to recommend and hopefully meet again (so i can put the advice to the test)
This quiet man is a wrestling beast. Very fit, strong and resilient. He has a true warrior spirit and gives it all on the mats. If u like it competitive yet safe this this is ur man. Very good leg defense and great offensive moves. Don't underestimate this beast or u will end up on the wrong side of a bad defeat!! Off the mats a quiet unassuming man, but once he opens up u see how genuine and nice a guy he truly is. Would def love another bout with this guy!!
Had been chatting to Celticmuscle for a little while, winding him up a bit.. Unexpectedly met him at the end of my Manchester trip this November,
and boy, did he make me regret my cheeky remarks!
This guy looks mean, and I do mean that in a very, very good way! He was everything I wanted, and more!
Getting anything on him is impossible; he is simply too strong.
His mean looks however, is certainly not reflected in his personality; a nicer guy would be hard to come across!
Has my absolute highest of recommendations.
The Viking has true Viking blood coursing through his veins! He's not a big heavy lumbering beast like me but he is very strong for his size, very competitive and fights with great tenacity. He will test any wrestler of any size....so approach with caution unless u wanna find urself flat on ur back, looking up at his evil smiling face as he looks down on his prey...lol. Since he started his studies in the UK I believe he spends most of his supposed study time in the gym!! He is very solid and is growing, so expect him to get better and stronger quickly. Roll with him and u will find urself tested in many ways!
Had an unexpected meet with this Viking in Manchester one day after he had apparently demolished all comers at Pippas!! Just as well for me he had been tired out the day before. This young man looks like he stepped out of a boy band, the face, smile and hair give u a false sense of security and they belie what is about to happen on the mats. He is a very tough young guy, fearless, competitive and skilled. A very good if short match as he was heading to the airport, but definitely further matches wanted. Don't pass up the chance to get this guy on the mats, u won't be disappointed!!
Finally got to meet Celticmuscle for our first wrestle after messaging for a while. He's a gentleman, a very reliable and friendly guy. He took the time to show me the various holds and moves that would suit my fighting style and pointed out the mistakes I was making and how to avoid doing so. He really inspired some confidence in me for my wrestling future..
After my introduction session was over, things got a bit tougher. I could only fight him off for so long before he got the better of me, usually by simply pinning me under his muscular weight along with a little bit of trash talk! Also he has a thing for scissors so avoid getting caught in between his legs. I would consider my main victory to be getting this big man to sweat so much during our match so I like to think that I made him work for his wins. :)
When the wrestling was over, Celticmuscle treated me to dinner and drinks. You won't find another charismatic and chatty man. I'm definitely looking forward to meeting this man on the mats again if only to see if I can last a while longer against him. :)
These young guys just seem to keep getting quicker and tougher....or is it me getting older??...lol. Met this young novice man for a training session. Very impressed with his natural skills and its obvious he will improve very much once he gets some more matches under his belt. Surprisingly strong for his size, his chokes are powerful!! Had a lot of exchange of holds and he picked things up quickly. The only thing holding him back is lack of matches but once he gets that sorted then he has the making of yet another lightweight demon!! My only negative is that I feel so bloody old when I wrestle these young studs...lol
Had a tag bout with my mate Fitman321 on my side against fitguy2 whom I had already fought twice and Celticmuscle his tag mate.
Celticmuscle is well named; Irish and all muscle. Powerful, stronger than strong, hugely muscular and astonishingly skilled. A serious and fearless fighter who can brilliantly vary the intensity of the bout. Destroy you if he wants to and yet apply great skill and subtlety to make for a good and interesting bout according to his opponent's level of strength, fitness, skill and weight.
The man is brilliant and great fun as well. He's as good at crushing your ribs as making you laugh. If you have any breath left that is!
As for the outcome of the bout. I don't think I need spelling it out!
Encountered this guy as part of a tag match involving the Irish pairing of myself and Fitguy2 versus him and Fitman321. They say the best things come in small packages and this man certainly is living proof of it. A huge welcoming smile is the first thing that greets you, then the warmth and friendliness. On the mats this guy is fearless and came at me with no hint of being intimidated by my greater bulk. A tough character with great staying power and some very good skills. Amazingly resilient and good humoured throughout the entire match (and afterwards too).
With all four participants adorned in country colours a lot of pride was on the line here so the pre-match banter & threats from readyforit and Fitman321 had to be met head on....and the resultant pleas for clemency fell on deaf ears for quite a while....lol. Once the international team ran up the white flag and Irish pride was fully satisfied we treated our foes to some very decent Irish hospitality & fare on which they seemed eager to feast.
This guy is a rare gem in the wrestling world so don't hesitate to meet him if u get the chance. In the meantime feel free to join him in a tag team to face the Irish Wolfhounds again!!
A tag team match against Fitman321 and his tag partner Readyforit was a blast. Two great guys bringing the best attitudes that could be hoped for in what was planned to be a competitive yet fun encounter. To say that myself and my tag partner Fitguy2 enjoyed the encounter would be a major understatement. Fitman321 was the bigger half of the "opposing" team and his physical size lets u know he will be strong. really enjoyed the big vs big and big vs small rounds in this match. All full on but good humoured. Fitman321 is an extremely warm and friendly man (off the mats...lol), and uses his size and power very responsibly when on the mats with a smaller lighter guy. Would def recommend him.

Met Celticmuscle as part of a group meet. Really nice guy. He's very tall, very defined, very strong and looks very hot in a singlet. When I stepped through the ropes it was clear there was only going to be one outcome.... he got totally squashed and owned........ what's that?....... yeah you're right it was the other way round.... BIG STYLE! However I had a lot of fun and he was more than willing to share some tips and pointers which I really appreciated. He showed a lot of aggression but was also sane and sensible which was a good job given his size and power. No matter how much I improve I doubt I'll ever get a tap out of him but I know I'll enjoy trying.
This lad comes ready for action, looks great in his square cuts and is a genuinely nice guy! Saw him take on three other guys at a min-group meet and he did very well even though he was the least experienced guy! I really enjoyed my couple of rounds with him. He is tenacious on the mats and fights hard but safe. He is one guy who will def improve with more experience. Lovely guy off the mats too and well worth meeting if the opportunity presents itself.
Had an opportunity a while back to face this beast in a tag team match.....Me with Fitguy2 versus Herald and Scotsgrappler. A great match was had by all. Herald is a very powerful guy and can use that power very effectively. Really enjoyed tussling with a bigger guy like him in a true test of strength match. Really enjoyable encounter with a truly nice guy, whose demeanour off the mats showed just how genuine and nice a guy he is at heart......on the mats the demeanour changes a bit btw....so be warned...LOL....would def recommend this good guy for a match.
Well after years of exchanging abuse and issuing threats to each other I met Celticmuscle for a scrap - this guy is big, strong and muscular - the Hulk totally dominated me from the start of the fight to the end. I tapped so many times I am thinking of changing my name on MF to the Woodpecker!. I had a really great time but was way out my league - I have a few battle scars to show from my encounter which is the sign of a good fight. Celticmuscle ground me down using his weight, bulk and those bloody great big arms - he is very safe and sane and stuck to the rules - he is a great guy and easy to get along with (off the mats) - but if you challenge him, expect a fight!
After much to and fro online banter I finally had a chance to get to grips with this legend of MF. He talks tough and he delivers tough, with hard punches and knee's and a great intensity on the mats. While the online persona of toughness is visible when u tangle with this guy, underneath that cocky tough exterior is a true gent who really loves his wrestling, and is a pleasure to converse with. If you want a real mans wrestle then this is the go to guy. Can't wait for future meets with him!
Wow. Incredibly tough and STRONG opponent.
Trying to get a hold on him (or to get out of his grip) is like attempting to wrestle a boulder. Thankfully Celtic is a sane, friendly and intelligent guy.
Don't miss a chance to wrestle him
This is an extremely nice guy....on and off the mats. Well schooled in BJJ, a gym body and a man who brings toughness to the mats. We had restricted space which handed me an advantage due to my extra size. A very safe& fun guy who I would recommend without hesitation.
Oh man! The strength! Absolutely awesome... I loved every minute of our match! If you want to arm wrestle this geezer forget it! Solid and unmovable... it's rare I say that believe me!
We had a wrestle and show each other our strength an skills, to a limited degree due to the space restrictions but none the less it was great.
Can not wait to get this muscle daddy in to a matroom so we can give it 100%. Awesome intro to each other's game and what a star of a man this gent really is...one of my toughest opponents yet which I was very excited about and rightly so!
Gotta be a 5 star approval from me, more than worth a match! If you want a challenge this guy is up there! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 I thank you sir 😉
The first thing you notice with this guy is the deceptively benign & disarming smile...lol...then you notice the sheer mass of this powerhouse. This man may be relatively new to the site but there is no doubting that he is an accomplished fighter! It is no surprise to discover he is a powerlifter, he is simply a mass of muscle and power....wide all over, huge all over, tree trunk legs...and is also a well skilled and practiced BJJ guy. Once we hit the floor it became clear that a hotel room was not gonna suffice, with damage to furniture, fittings or us being a fairly certain outcome. We toned it down and had a great time testing each other. This man is the real deal, do NOT underestimate him for a second. We decided to leave the real competitive action to our next meet on proper mats (a prospect that fills me with some trepidation). He did dig deep and found the courage to challenge in an arm wrestle....poor guy!....lol.....seriously this is one of the best challenges I have had. All the way through his attitude was excellent with an ever present smile and great wit. I can only recommend him very highly and I look forward to many matches in the future. A++
Met again with Celticmuscle and wow this handsome guy added a lot of muscle and technique to his game, he is stronger than last time we met. I had such a great time and I am looking forward to our next match!!
Strong genuine and tons of fun in the mat. We need to fight again!
Had an unexpected opportunity to meet this man again recently. I remembered from our first encounter a few years ago his sheer size and power.....well....the only change now is that he is even bigger and more powerful. I did not think the human body was built to hold such muscle mass and thickness. This man is huge, skilled, tough but very safe & courteous. I would wrestle this man every day if it were possible. Truly an A-lister on MF!!
Met Latinwrestler in Dublin a few years back. Very strong powerful and decent guy. Well worth a meet. Would jump at a chance for a rematch.
This man comes to wrestle. A steely look of determination in his eyes which shows itself in sheer physical effort on the mats. A weight advantage for me certainly helped tip the balance in my favour, but for any guys in the same weight category as this guy you better be ready to fight hard. This ma is tough and knows what he is doing. Very resilient and great attitude on and off the mats. Really enjoyable encounter that I would happily repeat!
Had the amazing opportunity to meet this CelticMuscle at a round robin match the other day. Our first contact had me gasping for breath as he mauled me (in a very gentlemanly way) with a rear naked choke. Later I had my opportunity to drag him to the mat and was just about to go to town when - he tagged in his teammate. CM wasn't 100% that night so we are booking in for a proper 1on1 private match to settle old scores! All 99 other who recommended him leave me little else to say. Meet this man!
This man is a truly nice guy.....until he gets his hands on you on the mats...lol. It's clear he really enjoys his wrestling and he was the life and soul of a recent group meet. His distinctive accent was to be heard all night with some great one liners and banter. On the mats he can go from super competitive to give and take and is very conscious of his competitors size and experience. He gives a great match with a mix of power and skill!! I can only apologise to him for my poor form on the night and promise him a better and longer match next time we can meet up!
As always, I still continue to roll with this strong and fit guy. Still stood no chance getting a sub out of him, however, just meeting him makes my game better as he continues to be skilled. Hope to have many more meets with him. Plus, I forgot to mention, his body continues to be a powerhouse of muscle.
Always a joy wrestling this powerhouse of strength and muscle. CM has def improved in his arms, delts, legs. Well everywhere. Continues to dominate his opponent with ease and always safe and sane. As always a great guy to get along with and always reliable. Guys on here, if you want a challenge with plenty of hardcore grappling you should def meet him, he wont disappoint!
This guy was a joy to wrestle, but was at a price. I stood no chance against a wrestler who was strong, quick and agile. Now regretting winding him up last year lol. Knew his stuff, and was relenting in his subs. All executed safe and sanely. Great body, great personality as well and a great host. Well worth the wait. Comes highly recommended!
May 2017 - the "annual" match it seemed like....lol...have met this beast at least once a year for the last 5 years and the 2017 encounter was as good as any. This mans body just gets better with each passing year....muscle on muscle. Wasn't our usual length of match due to numbers, time and my less than peaky condition on the night, but it was great to feel his power again. Watching him in action against others at this group meet confirmed his improving skills and great power. He is a must meet if u enjoy good competitive, safe matches against a truly nice guy with a killer body.
Third match against Superfly and they each has been better than the previous. What a body!! This mans body reacts to the gym in a very positive way!! Muscled, strong and skilled.....he brought a new determination to this one and we had a close fought battle. An incredibly nice guy whose gentle manner belies his sheer size and muscles! he's as good to look at as he is to wrestle....which means wrestling him is damn good!!...lol
great body, great fighter, great guy! Strong determined guy with great physique...stamina and power...a real tuff test....and topped off with a great attitude and personality....very positive recommendation....wud def meet again!!
First rate guy - highly recommended and wholly reliable. Strong, aggressive,gracious, friendly, funny with the right mixture of goading and blether (pretty solid combo). Any time, anywhere ...and you really cannot say more than that. Well, had round two and either he is much improved or I am crap. I vote for him being much improved. He is definitely more built. Nice tough no quarter bout. I was errm a good second.
Another encounter with the Irish behemoth. Even bigger. Even stronger. I need a ladder. A ladder a hammer and a tazer. Rematch anytime. MAY 2017 update: delighted to have our Celtic cousin join the Scottish blues in a tag tournament (even if he did turn up with red trunks) where, despite being less than in best form, he played his part in our wiin (yeah, we won!) and took on all-comers with his usual enthusiasm, courtesy and charm. Still a beast, though.
Had a really great meet with Scotsgrappler. Similar skill level to myself and strong with it....and also possessed of a great Scots sense of humour. Thoroughly enjoyable experience and would meet and wrestle him again any time!
March 2012 - 2nd meeting with Scotsgrappler...still that wonderful sense of humour, a great guy to grapple and to hang out with. Thoroughly safe and will make you feel completely at ease. Bring on 3rd match!!
May 2017 - the years roll by (all too quickly these days), but some things stay pretty constant and reliable in this world and this cheeky Scots git is one of them!! He organised a group meet with military precision. We didn't get to roll on the night....large group, limited time, and me wimping out early, but he was on the mats constantly taking on all comers. His sense of competition and humour shone throughout and he made everyone feel like old friends in a short space of time. Thanks again for organising a great night!!
This young man is quite a revelation. The first thing that strikes you is the incredible smile and the handsome face....then the shirt comes off and its pure hard defined muscle. Fearless competitor who sought out every big guy at a group meet. He mixed it up with the best of the big guys and went on like the Duracell bunny. Great exponent of the scissors and he can take a lot of punishment. Overall a class act on and off the mats. Do not underestimate this man even if you have a considerable size advantage! Was great meeting him!
After years of chatting and talking, I finally had the chance and pleasure to meet Celticmuscle. I have wrestled big bodybuilders before, but never have I experienced such a force! This is one powerful and skilled tank of a man! He knows his submission holds well and does not joke about it. I knew he would eventually overpower me but I was overwhelmed his fierce force and skill...he certainly crushed and humbled me :))))
He is one beautiful specimen of a muscle man...he knows how to flex and show off his power and masculinity and that was sheer pleasure to experience. I very much enjoyed discussing all sorts of topics with him and I definitely gained a generous friend! I look forward to our next encounter buddy on AND off the matts!
This guy oozes masculinity. Big, powerful, tree trunk legs, he fills a singlet perfectly. Incredibly interesting guy to talk to, he comes across as a very intelligent, articulate man. BTW the beard and hair just add to the sheer masculine look of this beast. On the mats he is much more comfortable with pro/prosub moves so the transition to a competitive sub match was a bit challenging for him but he adapted very well and his strength is evident when you roll with him. A really enjoyable match that I would would love to repeat if the opportunity presents itself.
Jerry is a lovely guy; but let's be clear, he flattened me. Great strength and good technique and fun to roll with, I was totally overpowered from the get go. Challenge him and see what happens!
The minute you meet this man you feel so completely at ease. He has such a genial demeanour and is a genuine conversationalist. It is just so easy to engage with him and feel like you have known him for years. Then he strips to his speedos and my word, he is a specimen of a man. Lean and ripped with quads that are simply incredible. On the mats he uses that muscled frame to very good effect. He has some BJJ training which becomes very obvious from the variety of offensive and defensive moves he employs. A competitive and really enjoyable encounter with a very nice guy. Next time it has to be on proper mats to allow this battle to be settled effectively! Can't wait for that!!!
Had the pleasure of finally meeting this Irish hunk. Very nice guy off the mats but a beast on them. Strong powerful guy but safe and sane. Worth the wait to meet and hope to have the pleasure again sometime.
Had the great pleasure of finally having an impromptu meet with this giant on my travels. A true gentleman wrapped up in a powerful body. The man has hands like shovels and is as strong as an ox. It was a true test of power for both of us, and the aches and pains at the end show that A) we are getting older....lol, & B) it ain't easy work when two big bulls meet in a small space. A really enjoyable encounter with such a nice guy. No one should pass up the chance to meet him. I think i lost a couple of kgs just from sweating alone in this match. A def A+ recommendation from me. Hope we can do it all again soon big man!!
Too strong, too powerful, too technical blabla. Obviously he has it all. But I start BJJ and will be in charge. Celticmuscle is a gentleman. I had a very pleasant meeting.
A great young guy full of enthusiasm. Not intimidated at all going up against a bigger guy. He is tough and resilient, will only improve as he takes up his BJJ classes. I am sure he will be back for further fights. Would definitely recommend. A really nice young lad.
A great wrestler and a strong guy. Got my utmost respect! He is built like a tank and strong as one too! A great bloke so I throughly reccomend a wrestle.
This man is BIG....arms like tree trunks and very powerful.....but very safe and controlled when rolling. I felt small standing next to him. He may be new to this but he has great natural instincts, and once he gets hold of u then be ready to feel what muscle power feels like. Thankfully all that power comes coupled with a great attitude and sense of humour! I would recommend him fully....just make sure to get him while he is still learning, once he skills up even more he will be quite a handful!!
This "old" man definitely knows what he's doing!
He's a well built, strong and skilled person that definitely knows how to move on the mats. If you're not used to work from your back, you will be in for some serious trouble when you're going up against this mountain of a man!
It was a pleasure to meet him in Vienna and spend some quality time on and off the mats with this charming fellow. I would definitely recommend him for anyone who has the guts to take on a bigger man and I'm definitely in for a repeat on my mats!
Had a great battle with this young man. He is training in BJJ every week and it certainly shows in his moves and tactical awareness on the mats. Strong, skilled, determined but very safe and considerate. He is well worth meeting if you want to see how u can compare to some of the BJJ guys on here. Judging by his performance today it will not be long before his improving skills, coupled with his power will result in a very formidable opponent even for guys bigger than him. Off the mats a truly nice polite guy. Would recommend him fully.
I had a great time meeting this mountain of a man at the weekend. He's a total giant, and somehow still manages to be even stronger than he looks!!! He's also a true gent and a pleasure to meet. Definitely highly recommended to anyone who is looking for a challenge - this man will not disappoint.
This a real muscle powerhouse of a man! Excellent muscled physique. Incredibly strong....and yet such a down to earth nice guy. If you want to test your strength then give this beast a go! Puts on an incredible flex show as well. Really enjoyable meet with a truly nice guy.
Celticmuscle is an absolute beast of a man. If anything he is bigger and stronger than he looks in his pics. A genuinely all round nice guy and as it was my first proper match he made sure it was an enjoyable experience even if I ended up tapping more times than I could count. Celticmuscle took the time to show me a few moves and point out the basic errors I was making.
It was a great first match and even though I comprehensively got my arse kicked I look forward to a rematch.
Celticmuscle is top class, great guy.
Met this relative newbie for a local match. First thing you see is a muscled beefy strong guy, and you just know he will be quite powerful. He has great stamina and fought long and hard. A truly competitive spirit and great attitude on and off the mats. With more experience his power will be even more formidable. A really enjoyable encounter and hopefully the first of many.
This guy is a powerhouse! Very hard to defeat. His leg power is amazing. I never met a guy squeezing so hard. I could take it for a while but he was able to destroy my abs over and over again. I had a lot of fun with him on and off the matts. A very nice guy in general with some great skills to make you suffer. If you look for a real challenge, he is your MAN! I hope to meet him again sometime.
His profile name sums him up......small in stature but bloody big in heart and strength. He showed no fear at all facing a man much bigger than himself. Once he has the MMA gloves on then ur abs better be able to take some punches cos he can go like a jack hammer. A really nice guy with a true fighters attitude......a disarming smile which he can use to distract you, don't be fooled by it....lol. Highly recommended.
If I had to put a name under this man itd be a super strong gentle giant!I was given the chance to meet and wrestle him in Vienna after wed initially wrestled or should I say me being flattened in Athens and was I mesmerized!Not only by his superhuman strength and his bulky frame but by his amiable,kind- hearted personality,too. CelticMuscles you re the man everyone should meet..
I have met this great guy a couple of times now. It is very impressive to see his physical development over the last number of years. What is not such a surprise is his continued love of wrestling. He is a very tough guy, able to withstand enormous pressure for prolonged periods. He will give any man a good workout on the mats, always in a great spirit which makes it challenging and enjoyable. His incredible personality is infectious and can bring a smile to your face no matter what mood you started the day in. Such a generous, kind hearted guy. Do not pass up the opportunity to meet him if you can. You will really love to wrestle him, and he will brighten up your day all in one! Glad to be able to call him my friend!
I grew up with an anime called Dragonball. In this series, whenever Goku would beat an opponent, another one would be introduced who would wreck his everloving shit.Celticmuscle was that for me. This guy has been so far the stongest opponent that i have had, and probably the most skilled! We wrestled for a couple of hours and i stood no chance whats so ever. He delivers move after move, which unless the stars align, you wont be able to resist due to his crazy strenght! Also, looks amazing in his gear! Off the matts Celtic is a very funny and engaging man who was an amazing host. Overall, if you havent wrestled him, what are you waiting for? If you have, do it again, you might even get ice cream out of it!
This young guy is a real treat to meet. He has a very competitive spirit and is quite fearless. A bit of a Clark Kent/Superman transformation when he changes from civvies to fight gear. A tough resilient guy on the mats and a very interesting conversationalist off them. He will def improve with experience so get him now!!
Nur schon wenn Du Celticmuscle siehst, wirst Du staunen, in Natura wirkt er viel wuchtiger, kräftiger und muskulöser als auf den Pics. Trotz seiner Grösse bewegt er sich nicht wie ein Bär, sondern schnell wie ein Puma. Celticmuscle ist ein fröhlicher, aufgestellter, umgänglicher und intelligenter Typ, selbst auf der Matte wirkt er nicht verbissen. Sobald ich 20 kg Muskelmasse mehr habe und technisch grosse Fortschritte gemacht habe, werde ich ihn sehr gerne wieder herausfordern.
This man deserves huge credit for heart. Watched him limp into the meet carrying a badly injured leg, yet he stepped up for each match without hesitation and gave as good as he got. Even with the injury he is a tough guy to handle, looking forward to a rematch when he is 100%.
Sometimes you come across guys who you simply have no hope against. Celticmuscle is one of them for me, he only takes what he wants, and when he is in the mood he is simply just a beast!
I try to get him in a headlock - celticmuscle says no, i tap within a minute.
He allows me to get a headlock on, he gets bored of my futile attempt - celticmuscle says no, i tap within a minute.
I try to pounce him from behind - celticmuscle says no, i take a working over and tap constantly for 5 minutes.
It was the most hilariously one sided matches i have ever had, yet i'd happily have another go. He's a proper gent otherwise, conversation flows from him with ease and he is a good laugh.
Fully recommend this beast to anyone!
Had a second chance to lock up with this "rookie".....If he is a rookie then I am definitely going backwards at an alarming rate in this business...lol....Only had a couple of rounds with him but he didn't disappoint. He is really improving rapidly. I had the pleasure of watching him roll with another couple of guys as well and its very obvious he is developing a range of skills to match his natural power. He is an up and coming force guys so watch out for him!
This guy is one solid man! He doesn't go down easily and he keeps bouncing back. Very determined, coupled with some good moves. Nothing seems to intimidate him and there's a constant cheeky smile on that bearded face. An incredibly nice guy who will give you a great competitive match. Very strong guy who will test any mans resilience when caught in his holds. Would happily meet this guy again. With some more experience he will be a tough nut to crack for sure.
I met Gerry this weekend at a small meet. He's a great wrestler. Very big athletic build. Hugely skilled. Aggressive but very safe and fun. He was very respectful of my ability. He's all you could wish for in a wrestler and sportsman. He's a real charmer off the mats, witty and funny. He's a great guy. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
Met this beast of a man for a short couple of rounds....much shorter than I would have liked as I was feeling a bit under the weather.....but he was very understanding. He is a very strong man, but such a nice guy, very safe, and damn difficult to take down. Can't wait for us to have a proper longer session where he can use his full power!!
Was soll ich über diesen Ringer schreiben, was nicht schon geschrieben wurde. Dieser Mann ist toll, immer fröhlich, nett....ein Gentleman.
Auf der Matte wird er zur Kampfmaschine. Ein grosser, sehr starker Mann mit einem tollen Muskelbody. Er hat grossen Spass am wrestling. Er ist live viel muskulöser als auf seinen Fotos.
Ich hatte grossen Spass mit ihm zu ringen. Ich will es immer wieder tun. Ich habe schon mit einigen tollen Männern gekämpft aber celticmuscle gehört zu den Top 5.
What should I write about these wrestlers, that has not been written. This man is great, always cheerful, nice .... a gentleman.
On the mat, he is used to fighting machine. A big, very strong man with a great muscular body. He has great fun at wrestling. He's much more muscular than live on his pics.
I had to struggle a lot of fun with him. I want to do it again and again. I've struggled with some great men but celtic muscle belongs to the top. 5
I always thought the Swiss had a reputation for being gentle and peace loving....Tomsport didn't get that memo...lol....this man is a fighting machine. Big, strong, with good skills, he relished the challenge, and it was great taking him on. More matches def required with this wrestler. If you like a real, genuine challenge on the mats then this is the guy to meet!
28-29/05/2016: After meeting him in Manchester but not managing to get a match with him it was a very nice surprise to encounter Celticmuscle again in Vienna and finally get some mat time with him. Not all that much mat time with him mind, as it didn't exactly take him long to get three subs off me (and that's where the lack of surprise comes in), but what we did have time for was a lot of fun. He was obviously having to tone it down a lot wrestling me (otherwise my head would have come off and rolled away across the mats) but he's skilled enough that that didn't feel patronizing, and probably that's also in part due to the speed with which he grapples, which is impressive in such a big guy. Off the mats he's similarly a pleasure to spend some time with, not doing anything to detract from the deserved Irish reputation for the gift of the gab and a liking for a refreshing post-match beverage, and hurray for that! One of life's gentlemen, a definite meet again and very highly recommended.
You kinda expect a guy with the name "Squashlad" to be a pushover......NO WAY....he fights damn hard and can take a lot. He is also like the Duracell bunny so be warned if stamina is an issue for you. A very nice guy off the mats and someone I would meet again without hesitation!
28-05-2016 - I can not believe I've struggled with CELTICMUSCLE, this was a wonderful experience. He is powerful, strong, athletic and I had to give my all to avoid being dominated too easily. Our meeting was so competitive on mat as friendly out. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED and I will not lose the occasion to meet him again
This mans body and fitness belies his age. He is so fit and has a great muscled conditioned body. really enjoyed finally grappling with him. Showed no fear taking on a man a lot heavier than him, and the reason for that is apparent when you lock up with him. He is a great grappler and well worth meeting if the opportunity presents itself. A lovely guy off the mats as well. Was a true pleasure sir!
His statement: "I eat BJJ guys for breakfast." Bad luck as we did not wrestle at breakfast time ;-) Use the moment when he is lost in the bottom position because if he gets the top position you might not be able to turn the game around any more! Great fun to have a match with this impressive bulk of muscles!
BJJ trained and it shows. Agility, skill, stamina....I hate these guys....lol....an incredibly nice guy whose mats ability is evident. Another guy with a disarming smile that throws you of guard...until you find yourself in his guard!! He is testament to what some BJJ training can achieve.
Our paths finally crossed in Vienna and I now know why a lot of people have said to me that CM is probably the strongest big muscle guy on here. Was a bit like trying to wrestle a brick wall, a tank or bulldozer! But great fun, he's dominant but quite safe with little guys and entertaining company off the mats. Of course meet him if you get the chance!
I gotta hand it to this guy for guts....with such a big weight advantage most guys would have turned the other cheek, but he met me mano a mano on the mats. had a great grapple with him and would def go back for more. A lovely guy who also happens to look great in speedos!!!
This guy has muscles on his muscles. A great physique coupled with obvious skills. he knows his moves and is strong and technical. Thankfully he's also a very nice guy so he's not nearly as intimidating off the mats as he is on them. Challenge this man if u want to test yourself!
Had a great impromptu meeting while in Ireland with Celtic. Super chap on and off the mats. This dude is STRONG (far stronger than I... and I'm not a small guy), and you'll have a fantastic time. He was incredibly hospitable, especially considering the short notice again. I would absolutely meet up with him then next time geography allowed.
I hadn't expected to meet CM at Pippas so when he suggested a grapple I was going in blind - well apart from seeing he was one big, fit guy! What a good session we had - probably more strong give and take than competitive but immensely enjoyable... and steamily sweaty! Great safe and sane wrestler to let both sides enjoy and pass on some tips and I look forward to another match soon. Interesting guy off the mats too. Make sure you catch him on his travels.
This man is exceptional. What a physique. Would put most men to shame. I think he lives in the gym. He looks great in his speedos and wrestles with great passion. His power is obvious when you lock up with him. Good stamina and can hold his own against bigger guys. Would gladly meet this man again for a match!
It was a pleasant surprise to see this big guy at the Manchester event on 9th January 2016. I just had to ask him for a match and it was well worth it.
Of course I managed to get him to submit..... me many times lol.
I think he cheated by using his extra muscled weight to crush me ;-)
He's a safe and sane wrestler and the match was great fun. I hope we get a rematch. Thanks again for taking me on big guy :-)
This guy deserves great credit for taking on the workload associated with organising these group meets, and he does it with no expectation of personal reward. Its clear he loves wrestling and he has no fear. He took on every guy there no matter the size difference and he took a lot of punishment while dishing out some great verbal of his own. Incredibly nice man with a heart of a lion. Thanks for the meet and for the match!!
Well, what to say? We have chatted over the years, and I hadn't thought that we would ever hit the mats. When we did at a meet in Manchester it was me who did the hitting of the mats!!! This is one awesome wrestler; height, weight, skill, physique! Add to that a REAL sense of fun and even though I was reduced to a crumpled heap on the mats, I came out smiling! If you get the chance, wrestle this man! You wont be disappointed at all! He's one of the best! 100% recommendation!
A much delayed but much anticipated encounter with this legend. He's a big man with formidable strength. Loved every minute of our match. He's a great guy who loves his wrestling and puts u at ease from the get go. Hope we get to roll again soon big man!
I was lucky enough to meet this Gaelic giant at a group meet. What a hulk of a guy he is with arms and thighs like tree trunks. I did not expect to get a sub out of him so I was not disappointed. He had me in knots at the drop of a hat. All completely safe and a lovely fella to chat to, he was even willing to share his man flu!
Celticmuscle is the strongest guy I have ever wrestled. I lost count of the number of times I had to tap. My neck will ache for days from the choke holds...and those legs! I can usually withstand a tight scissors but not this guy's. When he's not being a demon on the mats, Jerry is great company. Despite the mauling I had a good laugh with him. Hope we can meet soon for a rematch.
This great guy was kind enough to host a match at short notice during my travels. Great set up with mats. This man is an object lesson in how to stay fit and look good no matter your age. He has a body most 20 somethings would kill for. Strong, muscled, tough and extremely resilient on the mats. He is a great competitor. We had a good sweaty encounter with some good laughs thrown in. Really enjoyed this match and would meet him again in a heartbeat for a rematch.
highly reccommend this gentle giant! great friendly guy on and off the matt!great fighter dont miss out if u get the chance!he tried and failed he was gracious in defeat better luck next time gerry
Very powerful and skilful wrestler. Got the the better of me every time, well worth meeting. Be warned he's no easy push over, he may come across as menacing on the matts, but off the matts he's a very nice polite knowledgeable guy. Hope to wrestle him again next time he's passing through.
Jerry is simply the best! I've wrestled over 325 guys from this site, and he's got be the strongest guy I've met. His muscles are massive, ripped, and beautiful – amazing legs, incredible guys, and the best huge striated shoulder muscles I've seen on a wrestler. And he's quick and friendly – tells a joke while he's crushing you to at least make you laugh as you suffer. An overall great guy with a great body, a great personality, and a great man to wrestle. The best, simply the best.
Such a brilliant guy! Hugely experienced and in possession of a great defined muscled body.....but all wrapped up in a very pleasant, humorous and genuine man. Tough on the mats, and great company off them. Would meet him again at the drop of a hat. meet him if u can while he is in Europe.
Met this beast couple weeks ago. Much stronger than he looks. It was pure
torture for couple hours, at least i make him sweat. If you want a real challenge
he is your guy to meet. Looking for to meet him again. Outside mats he is opposite to beast, real nice guy to spend time with. Fully recommended!
This guy is on a mission to be a great wrestler. can't believe how many matches he has had in such a short time. I had a great grapple with him. he's strong and very tough.....BIG strong legs. Shows no fear of the bigger guys. he's a great guy on and off the mats and was a pleasure meeting and wrestling him. Would meet him again without hesitation!
Finally met Celticmuscle after months of messages, but is all worth it, I had wrestler quite a big and strong lad but Celticmuscle top it all, I fight as hard as I can and he is destroying me. Well atleast I make it hard and we certainly had a hard sweaty wrestling. What make him even "dangerous" (in a nice way) is he not just "Strong" and know how and when to used it, i might last his first leg scissor attack but cant handle the second one. And a hella "Training" for me. (And Glad to know I am not the only one who sweat like pig) Out of mat he is a nice gentlemen who have lot of life experiences, we share lot words that not just wrestling but even life experience. He is a must meet. Can't wait for our next meet.
This Asian Tiger is a great guy...completely fearless even when tackling a guy so much heavier than him and has splendid resilience on the mats...it takes a LOT to make this tough man submit, and his batteries just don't give up! Against men in his own weight class he must definitely be rated highly. Off the mats he is such a nice guy and his decency is clear to see, articulate, intelligent and a good sense of humour. All in all a truly nice guy and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him or meet him again.
Met Gerry sometime ago in his 'own back yard''. Strong, tough fella. Had a great time but we both needed more space (without radiators) .... Lol.
Next time it's on my patch! Friendly, fair and reliable and definitely worth meeting.
John is a beast of a man on the mats....big, powerful and skilled.....2 big guys and one small space made for some tight encounters...lol....a mats match is def required for this judoka to show his full skills....great attitude on and off mats. Was a real pleasure meeting him and would do so again without hesitation!
Well worth traveling any distance to clash with this monster, I will definitely be doing it again... I thought he would be one of the best European matches and he did not disappoint!
excellent, excellent, excellent!! Really nice genuine guy. Built like a tiger tank and just as strong as one. Huge wide shoulders which put a lot of pressure on his T-shirts!!..lol. Really competitive drive, great stamina and a fabulous personality on and off the mats. Skilled and determined. Truly grateful this big Aussie travelled so far to meet me. Was a thoroughly enjoyable encounter. Would fight this guy every day if I could. If you like your opponents big, strong, powerful, competitive then this is the man for you. His great Aussie humour shines through all the time. Triple A recommendation!
Gerry is incredibly strong and definitely no beginner to wrestling. I had a tough competitive match with him and I think we were both pushed to the limits of our skill and endurance. Space was a bit limited but in all other ways it was a perfect match! First time I have been made to tap in a body scissors, well done big man!
Off the mats Gerry is friendly, articulate and generous to a fault. A lovely man to chat to off the mats and a really tough competitive opponent on them! Can't wait for the rematch!
Excellent battle with this warrior. He’s a big, powerful beast with great skills. Relentless on the mats. He battled me to my exhaustion. This is def a guy I will be back to challenge again. A great and humble man off the mats as well, he’s the complete package if u want a real test!!
Having read all the great reviews on this big friendly guy I knew my skills were going to be tested going into our match, I was given a good lesson by Celtic Muscle, fun, enjoyable and the morning after I'm aching all over. I could not dent his defences but he certainly dented mine! I've been fortunate to meet some really decent guys on here and this guy is no exception, decent, reliable, genuinely into his wrestling with a great muscle build, made me feel at ease. It will take a very strong, muscled experienced opponent to defeat this guy, Definitely one of the best. I'll learn from this and hope to try and get my revenge in the future :-) If you get the opportunity to Wrestle this man, take it with both hands
Met this great guy and had a great match. An obvious gym goer, this guy has a fabulous physique. Comes at you hard but in a very safe sane way. Competitive spirit and a wonderful sense of humour and an intelligent guy to have a good post match conversation with. Any guys in his weight class should be prepared for a hard fought battle against a muscled tough wrestler. Don't miss a chance to meet him if it arises!!
Celticmuscle belongs to the professional wrestling club! He is so big that filled the room with his presence! He is so strong and know to use that strenght so skillfull that left me no chance to win a round! He also knows how to use his weight to still his opponents. For Celtic wrestling is not just a hobby but a serious matter. If he traps you in his lethal legs dont try to escape! Just submit the sooner you can! Even if you tap out he might not leave you immediately so he can hear from you that he is your master. ONE OF THE STRONGEST MEN I EVER MET!! THANKS MAN FOR WRESTLING ME!
What can I say about this muscle God! I reckon he keeps up older pics of himself to deceive would be opponents...he is def a bigger muscled guy than his pics wud suggest. Super strong guy, quick and tenacious...would be hard work for any opponent. Incredible physique adds to the overall experience....coupled with a competitive yet safe/fun approach on the mats. Def meet him if u get the chance.
it was a pleasure meeting and wrestling that big guy
if u have a chance to wrestle with him,
go for it!
Met Akis as part of a 3 way Greek ambush on an unsuspecting Irish visitor....lol....such a great afternoon with 3 great guys. Akis is a powerfully built guy...benches 100kgs!!...so def as strong as he looks...excellent on and off mats attitude and was kind enough to guide me back to city centre and see me off safely. Wud def recommend u meet him if u get the chance!!
Celticmuscle is a big hunk of a man who knows his way around a scrap. He's as strong as an ox, and won't submit. Plus he's got bags of stamina. You will scrap for hours, and be totally spent at the end of it. You really must give this folk a go - and have a pint after the match.
Compared to me, Jerry is a giant of a man. I love a flexing, powerfully built man and he was everything I expected and more. We shared some gut punching and I'm pretty sure he was impressed that everything he threw at my abs was taken with a smile. Then turnabout was fair play and there's a good chance he'll be sore tomorrow. We shared some holds including leg scissors. Due to stressful day he'd had already, we finished with me giving him a massage. All I can say, is watch out for this skilled and powerful man but at the same time, he has my full recommendation.
Was really looking forward to meeting this man after an ongoing exchange of messages over the last couple of years. There's always a danger of disappointment when you eventually meet someone who you have come to "know" via online contact....but in this case Guy met and surpassed all my expectations. A truly nice man but definitely a warrior at heart. This man can hit HARD!! If you wanna test ur abs then this is the man to do it! Its like being hit by a hammer on a piston!! His own midsection is tuff as nails...he can take a lot of punches...fit, strong, tuff and a real gent. Meet him if the opportunity presents itself...u won't be disappointed!!
Had a real great wrestle with celtic. He was all what l expected and more.. very strong, very skilled and very sociable on and off the matts. What l have learnt from this powerful great legend is always remember what you text him in a pre match banter.. If you don't your be force feed your words..Never cheek this wonderful and respectful "muscled master". I am sure although I receive a lesson from this great guy, We shall both meet again in the future. Thank you Celtic for a great afternoon and evening. I will remember this in years to come.
Great meet with this strong and powerful guy. Fights with great determination and resilience. Wrists that wouldn't be out of place on a silverback gorilla..lol.....damn hard to gain control of his arms. Great on the mats attitude. Off the mats an articulate, intelligent guy. great dinner company! Would gladly meet again...and a def recommendation for anyone with a chance to meet him!!
What the hell??? Insane. Out of this world. Feel like I've literally been ran over by a train. Deadliest man I've ever had the pleasure to meet, but seriously, just know that this guy is the strongest man you'll ever face. Mountains of rock-hard muscle, the ultimate fighting attitude and the most enjoyable gentleman out of the mats. I just wish I had known better not to tease him, because he sure taught me a lesson or two on overconfidence. The absolute best muscle master, if you ever get the chance by all means fight him!
I really enjoyed our wrestling meeting!!! If u really love wrestling Celticmuscle is a must!!!!! believe me...if you are able to meet this guy you MUST.
Strong guy, competitive, and of course impressive physique
I 100% recommend this wrestler.
Then outside the mats his company is a real pleasure as well.
Wowwww mate "what a match you gave me" :)
I can,t wait for the re-match :)
Most members of wrestling sites can generally be segregated into two distinct camps….those who prefer the make believe and fantasy elements of jobber/heel matches, and those who prefer to test themselves for real in one on one contests with other men. Thankfully this guy falls 100% into the second category….a strong, powerful man fully deserving of being described as a fighter. Very determined and tenacious, very tough and highly competitive. Enjoyed every minute of this encounter…and a very genuine and nice guy off the mats too. A must meet if ur in his neck of the woods!!
Had an excellent match and sweat with this guy "woof". Great heavy weight fighter, wish he would change categories so I m sure I would be able to "fry" him. Plus, the one time I made him sub wasn't the classic way i ususally do, so I am definately looking for a revenge match. A fantastic guy on and off the mats.
Had a great match with this experienced BJJ fighter in a 3 way meet along with Rebelwrestle! Off the mats a very genuine, engaging and articulate guy! On the mats a true warrior, great skills and determination. Was a very tuff challenge and every sub was a hard fought battle...wud probably have been a very different result if I hadn't the advantage of 12kgs on him. Also a great teacher to share his skills. Would recommend 100%...but beware...if ur in his weight category he probably will defeat u!!....but he'll do it nicely....lol
Well this match took some time to happen and then just by chance the man was in my neck of the woods. WOW this guy in immensely strong and built like a brick wall. underneath is a total gentlemen. Its was a battle i won't forget and look forward to another. A top guy, great wrestler and mate. if he shows up near you then meet him.
After a couple of years of communicating I had an opportunity to meet and fight this great guy recently. What a great experience. Strong, skilled and determined on the mats....his incredible reputation is well deserved...coupled with a wonderful personality off the mats too. A must meet if the opportunity arises. Would relish more chances to fight this legend!
22/1/13 Wrestled the champ again and he did me again. He's packed more muscle and those legs are deadly. certainly one of the best guy's on the circuit and one of the strongest and best!
Not only a formidable wrestler but underneath that veneer is a top top bloke whose gr8 company off the mats - will be wrestling this beast again for sure and I will get u ..well. One day !! Total recommendation
Jan 2013...Its been almost 12 months since our last meet but this guy didn't waste that time...newly acquired BJJ skills and and even more steely determination really shone through. Great battle!! A truly nice guy on and off the mats....gonna be more matches during the year for sure.
Very nice guy coupled with great competitive attitude on the mats...strong and resilient...gonna be a regular matchup for me!! Great company off the mats too.
This lad... WHAT a fighter! Not only is he a muscle powerhouse, he's great technically. Seriously nice guy! A fight that I wanna do again!
Great meet with this very well muscled guy...pics def don't do justice to the reality. Very strong and competitive. His Muay Thai experience shows thru in GP so be prepared to take HARD punches if u take him on in that!! Great attitude, very solid, and with fighters blood flowing in his veins!!
Had the pleasure of meeting and fighting this great guy in Israel recently. Incredible physique with just unbelievable ab developement and definition. Had a very good wrestle and GP session! Wud def recommend to any visitors to his wonderful country!
A bull on the mats aggressive and competitive dominated me totally
A fun and intelligent guy to hang out with afterwards
Very reliable and I would recommend him strongly
Had a great fight with this wrestling beast in Hackney. Powerfully built and powerful on the mats. Great attitude and a very good test for any fighter. Stamina, skill and strength he possesses. Wud nvr miss a chance to fight him again. A+ recommendation.
What can I say about this power house? Had an amazing match with him, great battle and very friendly post-match!
I really would like to take him on again!!
had an unexpected but thoroughly enjoyable encounter with this guy in Hackney mats room. Decked out in full singlet he really looked the part, and he turned out to be an accomplished wrestler . A big strong guy, he goes at his fighting in a great positive way. A good challenge for any guy I have met. U shud def try to have a match with this guy if the opportunity presents itself.
Big boi with fully functional cannons! Had a great time on the mat and good grappling fun! Already looking forward to our rematch!
Met this very nice guy in Singapore for a wrestle. A very strong, tenacious guy, great attitude and also great sense of humour. His approach on the mats matched by his great hospitality off them...Took really good care of me showing me some of his city. Anyone passing thru shud def try to meet this man.
Met Celticmuscle today and just can follwow the other recommandations. Friendly irish gentleman as long as you are not close to the mats. On the mats he turns into the muscle beast mode. Very strong but always safe. Looking forward having the next match with him.
It's true what they all say- this guy is a muscle beast. But don't let that scare you, he's a great guy to roll around with due to his incredible power and great attitude. Really hoping to meet up again soon!
Celtic is a big muscle guy who lives up to expectations. Strong and powerful but not unsafe and a nice guy too.
Great fella - really enjoyed the match - would recommend but beware he's tuff n strong! Still made it really good fun tho - real nice guy.
This is a bit late, but Celticmuscle a real strong man and good wrestler. A muscle monster who pushed me to my limits and it was a very enjoyable experience. He is an overall great guy and I recommend him to everybody!
very nice guy !! very strong good technique
we must fight again !!
Pretty strong man to wrestle for domination. Hard safe fighter reliable , cant wait for the rematch. Bring it on.
If any man thinks he's strong he should reserve judgement until he has challenged this guy. Pics don't do his physique justice. Incredibly strong, incredibly big and most importantly incredibly genuine and nice. A true giant and a true gent!
meet celticmuscle and he is a tough cookie respects limits. If you want to test your strength then this is the man he is strong. Very friendly and open will meet again definatly for a rematch.
