Roughmatch is recommended by Jrugbyguy53
Had a great time taking on this guy at Hillside wrestling weekend very tough and will not quit. Def likes to throw a punch and can take quite a bit. Need to have a rematch with him someday.
nassaumark is recommended by Roughmatch
Mark and I stripped to trunks and wrestled at his apartment overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. He was a very tough competitor and easily submitted me. But I was still in my early days of wrestling; he didn't mind my lack of experience. He is a great guy and fun to wrestle but can be very competitive. Good tussle for all.
Roughmatch is recommended by lovethesqueeze
A very provocative and inspiring opponent who is both tough and resilient(albeit given to some hyperbole in his generous critique of our several encounters). He can handle whatever you throw at him and come back for more. He is eminently durable and can get rough if you incline toward extreme physicality.And that ,of course, is what makes it so hot if u are able to subdue him(which may come at a price). Also,he is very friendly and gregarious! Just be ready to fight.
lovethesqueeze is recommended by Roughmatch
I met and wrestled this tough man several times on my trips to the East. I would attend Hillside Wrestling and then spend a week in NYC. While in NYC, I would take the bus to NJ and wrestle this man. He is unbeatable. He has powerful thighs and a powerful chest. Nice bulge to the biceps as well. I never was able to do anything against him but he was very hospitable and wonderful off the mat. On the mat, he is a very tough competitor.
WrslMscl is recommended by Roughmatch
Here is a wrestler that is 100% muscle. And he uses his wrestling skills very well. We wrestled at Hillside. He and I were no match muscle wise; however, he easily adapted to my level and we had an awesome time. He will be a tough opponent but will match his strength with that of his opponent.
SubmissionGrapple is recommended by Roughmatch
The year: 2002. Location: Phoenix, AZ. Temps in the low 100's. SubmissionGrapple walked in the room, stripped off his shirt, and it was all-out war from the start. We wrestled and fought for what seemed like hours. I then wrestled him again in Portland while he was on a business trip. We then wrestled again in Portland for one solid hour a couple years later. He is a very strong and tough competitor. Anyone who wants a very good tough match needs to wrestle him. He's not a striker; he prefers grappling only. But he has a killer headlock and doesn't go down without a hell of a fight.
hardabs1 is recommended by Roughmatch
I first met Hardabs1 in 1997 in San Francisco. We spent an afternoon gut punching each other with him taking far more punches than I. Of course, he never caved in. Met him again a couple years later when I was again in the Bay Area. Another tough workout and, no, he didn't break. I even visited him in his home and more gut punching, more bruises (on me, of course) but he didn't break. Fast forward to July 2018. Seattle, WA. My boxing buddy and I BOTH worked him over and neither of us could drop him. After my buddy left, Hardabs1 worked my nipples hard and punched me twenty times in the lats. You want tough? Just meet up with Hard abs. He does sit ups daily. He works out hard. He is a super nice guy and a lot of fun. Just make sure you tighten your midsection.
sayrob is recommended by Roughmatch
Sayrob and his assistant, Andy, hosted the Hillside Wrestling Weekend for 18 years (1993-2011). Hillside Wrestling is by far the best wrestling set up I have attended. This man is skilled in BJJ and submission. We had several matches and there is nothing I can do against him. I would highly recommend him. He is sincere. He is honest, and he will show up to a scheduled bout.
Roughmatch is recommended by michaelwood
We sure did have a couple short matches....easy going guy here....will go any type match you want....he is always ready to roll at anytime...if ya wanna match...hit him up
michaelwood is recommended by Roughmatch
I was staying in Philly with Romangod on my way to my first Hillside Wrestling Weekend in 1998. Late one night Michael and a friend came in from Arizona. Although he was tired, Michael and I had a short submission match. I have never been in a more powerful head lock than Michael's. He's got the biggest biceps. We also had a little sweaty match at Hillside as he was coming off of a longer match on the mats. I would like to wrestle Michael a full submission match from start to finish but I'm grateful for the two short matches we had. He is a very tough competitor (watch those guns of his!) but a sweet and wonderful guy off the mats.
Roughmatch is recommended by badbigheel
We met several times beginning in the mid 90s through the late 2000s when I lived in Seattle. He is a tough opponent, skilled and loves the sport. He will work with any level and make sure you both have fun. We had a really rough match once that was great fun and he knew when to give and take with my abilities.
He went through a lot and has come out the other side the better man for it all. I hope to meet him again someday but hopefully in a ring next time. GRRRR
Good guy. You'll have fun.
badbigheel is recommended by Roughmatch
He and I agreed to wrestle at his place.. While wrestling, something came over me and I wanted to have a mutual J/O session with him. This man and I talked for hours on issues of men coming "out", which I also experienced. He was 1000% supportive as I went through the details of my situation. He made me feel ok about myself. I owe everything to this wonderful man and our wrestling match.I will recommend him to anyone who wants to feel safe and have a good time wrestling.
Roughmatch is recommended by wanttowrestle
Roughmatch and I had a great, long match today. He was very much as strong and tough as I expected and his skill in submission wrestling was very evident. And yes, we got into some rough wrestling with lots of punching. After submission wrestling we switched to folk style which just as fun. We enjoyed several hours of man2man fighting. Roughmatch, besides being a formidable opponent, is a real nice person whom I highly recommend to any man wanting a challenging match.
wanttowrestle is recommended by Roughmatch
Where do I start describing this great wrestler? We met as agreed. He was everything in person-to-person as he said he was online. We wrestled rough and had a wonderful time. He is very considerate and friendly. Likes to punch and we even sparred a little with boxing gloves. I will recommend this man to anyone who asks.
Roughmatch is recommended by Orman2man
If you are looking to wrestle one tough wrestler, do not miss the opportunity to wrestle this man. He is strong with a wicked pair of legs. We started out in speedos, stripped down and wrestle nude. He is also one heck of a man off the mats
Orman2man is recommended by Roughmatch
I have known this man for 10 years and have wrestled him numerous times. It is always a great thrill to meet him on the mats; we always have a great time. The first few times we met he dominated me easily as he was the stronger and more skilled wrestler. But over the years I've gotten to where I can hold my own against him and it's a lot of back and forth now. The latest match had us down to briefs to start. Hot day, humid basement, sweat flying every direction. Then we stripped down to nude and went for the dirty tactics. What a blast!!! We had a great time both on and off the mats.
JFighter is recommended by Roughmatch
I had scheduled a wrestling party with a friend on Staten Island. Knowing that he wrestles guys from all around the area, I assumed he would have some guys over for an afternoon of grappling. Unfortunately, some of the guys couldn't make it. But JFighter was one who did. We started out as a three-way grappling match but then J and I just went at it, one-on-one. We did everything, including a ball-claw contest, which came to a draw. He's got one tough headlock and it was hard to get out of it. I don't remember exactly how the match ended but I think he got more submissions out of me than I did him. Great attitude and nice guy off the mats but one terrific wrestler/fighter on the mats.
Roughmatch is recommended by Spruceman
Wrestled with Roughmatch some years back at the Hillside wrestling weekend. He is one tough, fast, wrestler, with all kinds of quick moves. He can take it every bit as much as he can dish it out. A really fun guy on the mats and off. Sure hope he can make it my way one of these days for an encore..or two..or three.
Matjock is recommended by Roughmatch
Matjock and I go a long way back as online friends. We have wanted to fight each other for years but never had the opportunity until today. I knew he would be strong but he amazed me with his strength and ability. Very nice guy. Always looking out for both men as we were in a tight space (hotel rooms just don't do the sport justice) and I thought the intensity was just about perfect. It was a lot of fun and he is strong and skilled. Happy to recommend him.
Roughmatch is recommended by AKgrappler
I had a great time wrestling Roughmatch. He is a real scrapper ! If you get a chance wrestle him.
Roughmatch is recommended by WrestlingCowboy
Have wrestled this bare chested stud twice .... once in Utah and once in Seattle. I am ready to lock horns again, bare chested man against bare chested man, drenching in sweat to the end!
Roughmatch is recommended by Senior Bear
This is truly what you see is what you get–tough as nails, strong and muscular, respectful of limits, friendly off the mats, all business on them. I would wrestle him every day if possible.
Senior Bear is recommended by Roughmatch
Began chatting with this wrestler online many years ago. We worked out some fantasy matches that, if we could meet, we would execute. As usual, distance proved to thwart our plans: he on the East Coast, myself on the West Coast. However, due to an invitation from a strong tough wrestler I had encountered at Hillside Wrestling, I visited the very town where Senior Bear lives. After wrestling my host, he left for some errands and allowed Senior Bear to come wrestle me at the apartment. In his younger years, Senior Bear had wrestled tough endurance matches at a local gym after hours and had great skill and strength. Even now, he hadn't lost much of that. We wrestled around for a good while and he even used his signature submission hold on me: a hyper-ventilating bear hug. I totally enjoyed myself and would love to see him again. He is not ready for any all-out brawl but if you are in the area, he would be willing to do some light wrestling and exchange of holds.
subwrestler2 is recommended by Roughmatch
Awesome and skilled grappler. One of my best matches ever in my career. Rough but sane. Not afraid to get into the action. Nice guy. Great attitude. Will recommend him in an instant. This man knows what real submission wrestling is all about. He's rough and tough, just the way I like my bouts.
Roughmatch is recommended by Samson Jr
i remember our Battle Royale in NYC, a sprawling, brawling good time on the mats. Rough Match is as he described. Reliable, fun. When he gets back to the Big Apple, I hope another Tag Team/Battle Royale can be arranged.
Samson Jr is recommended by Roughmatch
I was in NYC for a wrestling trip several years ago. My host arranged for a tag team match of four men. Samson_Jr was one of the four. We wrestled and wrestled and although I had size on him, he put up a great fight. It was a blast and I hope to wrestle him again.

Rob and I hassled about 10 yrs ago,, good man
Roughmatch is recommended by Ctgrappler1
After a year of challenges and threats I finally met this guy for a two day match. Both fighters agreed to fight with few rules and gear. We locked up as soon as we got in the room. The fighting was intense and competitive. Rough match is exactly what he says he is a true warrior that fights to win an doesn't back down. I had to use everything I had to beat this guy, and it wasn't easy. He's strong, skilled, and made me work hard for the win. I would definitely recommend this tough guy to anyone who wants to push the limits of their fight game. I look forward to our next brawl.
Ctgrappler1 is recommended by Roughmatch
where do I start? this guy and i went two days of wrestling, and I had a blast. we started competitive but he is so strong, we knew we had to scale it down. I would recommend him for anyone. He is safe, sane, yet rough. Just know he will probably submit you. He is the toughest and strongest wrestler I have met in 19 years of wrestling.
Roughmatch is recommended by nu2rasln
A very rough and aggressive wrestler, he can take a pounding and give it out just the same, alot of sweaty action, very hard to submit. Do not let his size fool you, or you will be the fool. looking forward to another match with this guy!
nu2rasln is recommended by Roughmatch
I had a wrestling match scheduled with this wrestler. It required about a two-hour drive each way to wrestle him. He showed up as promised, invited me in, and we stripped down. It was a hotel room and we were limited on wrestling space but we still had a very good wrestling match. We became fast friends as we wrestled. He's a solid, tough muscled wrestler and made me work hard during the match, which I expect from any opponent. He knew holds and moves and did not just lie down and let me beat him. He's a very decent clean wrestler. Tough, strong, good-natured. Can be rough or gentle as needed. One of my best wrestling matches ever. Can't wait until he has another reason to travel back here. Glad to recommend him. Well worth the effort.
Lkn4awrestletoy is recommended by Roughmatch
I have met this wrestler a couple of times. He asked that I not resist, which I obliged. He knows a lot of painful compliance holds, which I enjoy.
Tough guy in the match but a very nice guy when not wrestling. He wrestles to win and loves to take control.
I would recommend him unless you are not into rough.
Roughmatch is recommended by kckboxer
we met a while back for a short match, he is quite tough and can both give an take some good punishment. Nice guy, respects limits and is safe and sane
kckboxer is recommended by Roughmatch
Wrestled in 1997. Very skilled grappler and kick boxer. We had just a few minutes but enjoyed the match. I was fairly new to wrestling but he adjusted the intensity level. I am always up for another bout with him. Very nice guy and fun to wrestle.
TxWrestle is recommended by Roughmatch
This grappler was one of my matches at the start of my wrestling career. Having little or no knowledge of submission wrestling, I went into the match with little hope of getting the upper hand.
This man was totally cool with a "newbie". He was massively hairy and the sweat rolled easily from both of us. His signature finisher is the sleeper to which I succumbed several times during the match.
Very hospitable guy and fun to roll with. I always appreciate men who, although they are highly skilled and muscled, will work with a new guy and show him the "ropes".
redlandguy is recommended by Roughmatch
Redlandguy and I wrestled a number of years ago. He was much more advanced in grappling skills than I. Yet he wrestled me at my skill level and even offered me some training on technique, defense, etc. He's very strong and skilled and hard to submit. But very nice guy off the mats and very open to differences in skill levels between him and his opponent. One of my best experiences ever.
Wrestlg is recommended by Roughmatch
Both of us attended OKIE Rumble and that's where we wrestled. I was a newcomer to the sport of submission wrestling and of course this grappler out muscled and out wrestled me. But he was a good sport and didn't flaunt his win. We enjoyed the match and had a good time.
SubmissionMSCL is recommended by Roughmatch
Short match in a "round robin" style on submission mats at Hillside Wrestling. Never have wrestled him in a full start to finish bout but have my dreams. He is a great wrestler and his chiseled body drives me crazy! Like to see him apply scissor holds as well as see him suffer in them. I'm hoping one day to be KO'd with one of his head scissors from those monster thighs.
Ricksf is recommended by Roughmatch
I was barely learning how to wrestle when a California underground fight leader invited me to his mat room for a wrestling birthday party. This wrestler I am reviewing was one of the attendees. We wrestled on and off with each other and with other wrestlers there. It was fun although I didn't have a clue how to wrestle. He has always been fun and a great wrestler.
Mighty Mongo is recommended by Roughmatch
Short match with Mongo during a "round robin" in the pro ring at Hillside. He is a huge man but has a great personality and has great sportsmanship. Although I could have been easily bulldozed through the canvas, he toyed with me and allowed me to have fun, considering the huge weight difference.
Kruhn is recommended by Roughmatch
Wrestled submission at Hillside in a "round robin" affair with several other men. He outweighed me and the match was very short but he was very cordial and knew how to hold back so as not to crush me underneath him. His knowledge of MMA helped him use an arm bar to submit me.
Chicago Wrestler is recommended by Roughmatch
I wrestled this massive hunk at the OKIE Rumble. During part of the match, I got on my knees with my hands behind my back and allowed him to use his big feet to kick me in my midsection. It was a hot time we had. He likes it rough, as do I. Am hoping for another limited rules bout with him sometime.
bobster is recommended by Roughmatch
Both of us attended the Hillside Wrestling Weekend on several occasions. We wrestled a good match on the submission mats. He was very strong and skilled. He out-weighed and out-muscled me, which gave me challenges I could not overcome. I lost to him in several rounds but he was very sportsmanlike and a lot of fun to fight.
upstatefighter is recommended by Roughmatch
I met this grappler while on a visit to the Chicago area. I had multiple destinations throughout the city with multiple opponents. This man made time in his busy schedule to pick me up and go to his apartment. He was very hospitable and, though we didn't have room to wrestle, we rough housed and had a good time. I'm always ready to meet him again, hopefully in a ring or cage or on mats.
WarriorMuscle is recommended by Roughmatch
WarriorMuscle is a great guy to wrestle. Although he was far stronger and more skilled than I, he knew how to hold back so the match was enjoyed by both of us. He could have easily squashed me in submission but he is a great talented wrestler and made it fun. If you want to pit your strength against a strongman, here's your man.
dcgrappler is recommended by Roughmatch
Wrestled on the mats at Hillside wrestling. This guy is one tough fighter. We wrestled submission and he is very good. I've seen him wrestle pro but I like to think of him as a submission fighter. I think he might go NHB but those types of fights were not allowed during the Hillside Wrestling Weekend.
Roughmatch is recommended by greekwrestler
We wrestled long ago indeed in okie rumble. Nice guy who really likes his wrestling, will give u a good time. Hope i wrestle him again
Roughmatch is recommended by Virgowrestler
What can I say about this guy! Great guy and fum to beat on in a ring or on mats! Always comes back for more. Looking forward to another round with him!
Virgowrestler is recommended by Roughmatch
Wrestled this hunk as part of a three-way fight in Hollywood, CA, a number of years ago. Was beaten pretty soundly in the fight. Following the fight, he tied me to the ring ropes and had his way with me using a rubber flogger on my bare back. A proper way to use a loser as a pain slave. Highly recommend this fighter for a good strong bout.
hardonthemat is recommended by Roughmatch
I wrestled this tough guy many times at Hillside Wrestling. He is very skilled. Smaller guy but don't let that fool you. He has some very punishing holds. Pleasure to fight him and he comes recommended if you want to have a good sweaty rassle.
ozboxer is recommended by Roughmatch
I met this fighter for a pre-arranged one-sided total beat down. Yes, I was turned into a human punching bag. He used several types of gloves as well as his bare fists on my midsection. I never been gut punched so thoroughly and completely as with this guy. It lasted over an hour. Both of us stripped to the waist and sweaty. He is very careful to start light and work into heavy and will not take you past your limits but he definitely pushed my limits to take more than I thought I could. He left bruises that I carried for over a week (with pride, of course)!
Roughmatch is recommended by Mark uk
Met rough match a few times in Seattle. Great guy and tough as nails yet safe and sane. If your in the area I would def recommend you look him up.
Roughmatch is recommended by NickZ
Great guy to wrestle. We've had lots of matches including a memorable and very rough match at the Okie Rumble, and a more recent sub match with an audience in the boxing ring of my gym (after a match on the home mats and a workout at said gym). Rough sub and striking's all cool. Look him up if you're in the area.
NickZ is recommended by Roughmatch
Smallest guy I've ever wrestled. Lean and mean. Nicknamed the "Energizer Bunny" because of his endless stamina. I've seen him wrestle multiple guys over a space of just a few minutes. Doesn't like his action real rough but don't be fooled. He usually makes me tap out to a cradle every time. Excellent wrestler in collegiate and submission. Great host. Nice attitude. Willing to teach. One of my best buds on and off the mats. Love the impromptu fights he starts, even when there are no mats. He comes highly recommended. He will wrestle guys twice his size and often make them tap.
Roughmatch is recommended by PacNWBulldog
A real "shoot fighter" who can hang with the best of them. Do not let his weight fool you, he can handle himself even with men 100# heavier.
A nice guy off the mat, and one I would wrestle again anytime.
Roughmatch is recommended by RuffFightChallenge
Have wrestled him several times over the years, most recently in January, 2014 and it's always a great match, tough battle, and lots of satisfaction all around. Highly recommended!
RuffFightChallenge is recommended by Roughmatch
Have wrestled RFC on a number of occasions: namely, in West Hollywood and in Seattle. He is a strong, tough opponent who will go all out in a match, including low blows and CBT. Nice guy off the mats; on the mats he fights to win. Has a sadistic side for victim torture, which is also nice! Comes highly recommended.
