Profile of Solidman (61)
Having had a few meets the last few months I must say that I am now enjoying the grappling side a lot more than the fighting side.
The aggressive side and rough side are still there and still very much controlled. I’m happy to discuss this option if it’s something you wish to try or experience.
I used to want to win all the time, but it’s now evident that having a fun match and learning More from an opponent or teaching my opponent a move or some technique is far more fun than winning. But don’t be fooled, I am extremely competitive and would much prefer to win than lose. But that’s just my nature and won’t spoil a match if I met someone stronger or more skilled than me.
I am very respectful and considerate of my opponents and expect the same. I’m not on this site to prove anything to anyone.
If we use fists/elbows/knees please be as controlled as I am. If/when I strike your body it will be on certain areas. It’s easy to throw punches and kicks but it’s difficult to control where they land. If I suffer any injury it will have a massive impact on my day to day life. I ride a motorbike and need use of both my feet and wrists.
On the off chance that maybe you also ride a motorbike I’d be keen to talk motorbikes. I use my bike daily.
I use Walthamstow ring regularly. I very rarely accept hotel or living room meets. I’ve ended up outside the mats and that is a fairly large area. I doubt a double bed mattress will be enough for me and someone else. So let’s be realistic about the environment where we’re going to fight.
Some rules I like to stick to:
- no face shots ever.
- No groin shots ever.
- Cut your finger nails and toe nails before a fight. I’d rather think of you by looking at a bruise later on than a scratch.
- Not interested in sex. I have a partner and I don’t do this to have sex.
I like to film/take pictures of my matches. That will ONLY happen if you also agree to it. So this is always up for discussion.
Stakes. I have no interest in sexually based stakes, but happy to discuss cash stakes.
Trash talk. Total and complete turn off. Don’t mind goading each other a bit but this whole you’re gonna go down bitch talk won’t get you far with me.
I am always on time but if I was to be running late I will communicate this with you. That means I’m going to want to exchange phone numbers. If this is not something you are willing to do then we are not likely to meet up.
I almost never cancel a meet. But I understand things can happen and do happen. If/when I book the room at Walthamstow I’d expect a 50% deposit from you. If you wish to take care of the booking yourself then that is totally fine. I know Monica very well and she can vouch for me that I always turn up and I always pay.

We’ve been chatting for years, and I have observed his transformation from an aggressive newbie to a committed grappler. It’s nice to see his evolution, embracing the good values of combat sports. Solidman has definitely acquired a great submission skill set over the years and doesn’t hold back to use it. Loved the speed and pace he brought to the match. It kept the match interesting at all times, whilst remaining safe. His cheeky grin when he’s in a superior position is just priceless. This guy is absolutely reliable. Not only on the mats, but also when it comes to organise a little event at last minutes notice. Thanks for such a beautiful day, fighting, eating, chatting and organizing my London trip with all the right highlights. You’re a wonderful person. I loved being in your company and can definitely recommend Solidman for a solid wrestling session as much as for a drink or lunch afterwards. Can’t wait for round two.
One advice: Don’t ask to add boxing or kicking to the fight, he punches like a little girl. But hey, nobody is perfect, and that was the only weakness I could find.
Been chatting for quite sometime and this guy made the quickest and easiest match happen. I wish everyone on this site is as reliable and committed as this chap.
Due to a small thumb injury sustained in the first few seconds of our battle by Zurich, it meant I had the upper hand (with a fully working and functioning thumb) the whole time.
I’m certain Zurich will be a challenge with a fully functioning hand and thumbs and I very much look forward to seeing what he really is capable of. Until then I’ll just enjoy the few taps I got out of him.
Off the mats he’s an absolute pleasure to be with. I could have easily spent a whole day with him and still be entertained. I very much look forward to our next match together.
Had a fantastic time with this handsome beast! We made the most of limited space and it became a far more intense battle than I had anticipated. I tapped once, twice or was it ten times?? Well worth it and I look forward to another match in the future. I may go against your advice and seek a little training before we meet😜
Met this guy a couple of weeks ago and wow. What a strong man he is. I completely underestimated his strength and skill. One of the most exciting wrestles I’ve had. And the more we wrestled the more I wanted to wrestle. I could have gone on for hours and hours and not got bored. Sadly due to the very small space we had to be very controlled. I really hope we meet again and hope soon too. I’d worry if this guy gets more training, he’d be lethal if he did. Thanks for an awesome sweaty session mate.
I ve met this guy and we spent a lovely time wrestling. That kind of experience "once in a lifetime" he is very strong, skilled and sexy. Impossible to defeat him. Anyway I did my best and it s a honour to be beaten for a wrestler like him. Great body, strong, smart, funny and handsome.What else you can ask for a meet fighters meeting? ;-) and the top of the hill, very easy to arrange. higly recommendef
This guys was great to set up a match with. Easy and hassle free. He turned up on time and took care of booking a place for us to wrestle.
He is in a fantastic shape and we had a fantastic sweaty wrestle together. I think having some extra holiday weight didn’t help him but he’s certainly strong and it was a pleasure wrestling him.
I wish we meet again soon. Don’t miss out on meeting this guy if you’re visiting BA.
Absolute beast, Solidman is probably the strongest guy I’ve met on here. We had been keen to fight for sometime and finally Luttefrance made it happen. We went on for hours in which I had to resort to every trick in my bag. Not the most technical fighter I’ve met in my life lol, but he’s got such power that he may not need it. He made me work and sweat like no other, and although I didn’t feel like I gave a great fight watching myself on video later on made me feel a little better. In any case I wish I could have go on for more hours still, I enjoyed every exhausting minute of it. Looking forward to fighting you again, my friend.
When you wrestle someone like st7 for 3.5 hours and feel like you could go on for another 3.5 hours, this is a sign of an epic fight. And it certainly was.
St7 is strong, gives as much as he gets, aggressive, safe, and above all JUST FUN to wrestle with.
We’ve chatted a few months ago and a meeting wasn’t possible, so when I had the chance to meet him last weekend I didn’t think twice, and the second I saw him I got so excited that I didn’t even want to take my clothes off and fight him straight away.
Only face st7 if you know what you’re getting yourself into. And that’s a rough aggressive fight with an awesome opponent who does not give up easily. I really do hope we get to meet again and very soon.
I think the strongest guy I met on this site. Extremly well buit body with seriously strong legs and arms. I was trying to resist and managed to do that quite well at the beginning but he really dominated me afterwards. Not only strong but also knows some good techniques and can put you in trouble in seconds!
Also super nice guy off the mats and a very good host!
Thanks for the fight man, I am happy to repeat it anytime, I will come back stronger!! :P
I had a spare hour before I had to leave Bcn and subbud suggested meeting. My body was saying absolutely not, my heart was saying absolutely yes. And I’m glad I listening to my heart and not my body.
This guy is very tenacious, knows what he’s doing and just keeps going until he gets what he wants.
I promised I’d sit on him and he said maybe I’d sit on him but I would not make him tap. I sat on him and I made him tap ;).
Honestly though, at the beginning I didn’t think I had a chance, with a little more experience he’d be lethal.
Highly recommended if you want to fight a strong man.
Well, the username is accurate, this guy is a solid wrestler. His thick strong body and skills make him a very tough opponent. Really had a ton of fun rolling around. Also a super nice guy who helped organize and took the time to show me some moves in between rounds. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a good workout. Looking forward to more matches!
It took a long time to get this meeting arranged due to venue availability and personal travels but boy was this guy worth the wait. He looks great in gear, very strong and has great stamina.
We wrestled for a good 90 mins and I could have kept on going for another 90 it’s that enjoyable.
Off the mats, lovely guy too. Look forward to round 2.
It was a fantastic meeting. His jet-legged condition didn’t hinder his flattening me. Yet whatever holds I’m in, I would feel extremely safe, for he is a sane guy who always cares for his opponents. He taught me moves and methodology patiently, for an instant I thought I’m sitting with a kongfu master. Off the mat he is a good-humored guy, the only regret is that time didn’t allow us to talk beyond wrestling. Hope we can meet another time.
What a guy. Communicative, polite, reliable, stronger than he looks, quick to learn, eager to learn, great instincts and fun to wrestle with. I showed him a few moves and he was quick to use them on me. All he needs is a few more practice sessions and he will easily be on another level. Highly recommended.
Had a great time with this awesome fighter. Strong willed and an absolute gentlemen. Look forward to many more meets!
Solidman is recommended by MisterNoGi
What can I say? Solidman is a very strong guy with a real fighter natural body shape.
Friendly, interesting and fun - great sense of humor - out of the mats, this provocative warrior is a challenge to manage during the fight.
We were 5 to wrestle this day and we were exhausted at the end but I would like to challenge and take him on again and again.
I can’t wait to face Solidman again. I hope it will be soon.
Highly recommended of course !
MisterNoGi is recommended by Solidman
So, misternogi is a big guy. Very friendly but don’t be fooled, he is as skilled as he is strong and you’ll feel it all when you get on the mats with this man.
Polite, respectful and tonnes of fun. He’s one of these people I could wrestle with all day long and still want more. As tired as I was (having wrestled 4 guys in total in 1 day) I couldn’t keep away from wrestling him. He is determined and has good defence and good attack. I hope we meet again and very soon :).
Wow such a bull ! This is clearly a rising star within the MeetFighter community. Eager to win, extremely powerful, with an excellent cardio, and on the top of that an incredible instinct. With the techniques coming, he will be a real fighting machine. A grappler fully committed on the mats. If you like highly competitive grappling sessions, this guy is for you ! Out of the mats a charming guy, talkative, a perfect gentleman.
Perfect opponent for skilled and tough guys.
What a lovely guy. I was lucky to meet learner71 and chat to him before hitting the mats the following day. He is a warm, fun and friendly guy. On the mats, he is big, tall and strong. We had a good roll and the only regret is that it wasn’t a long enough session. I hope our paths cross and we meet again :).
Solidman is recommended by bikermanrr
A superb face, a body type Hummer a real wrestling machine Widely dominated, my destruction was made absolutely painless but ardently, arf, it is delicious with him.
I tried in vain to break the machine but it should at least took me to take control I just took place in the rollercoaster, I am well hooked and lived an extreme trip, thrill guaranteed!
Strength, humor, kindness ....... it will make you vibrate is on, ask for your turn and hang on, it's great, unforgettable
I had the luck and the honor to receive solidman at my place for few days. We had an amazing weekend.
On the mat, solidman is the good nickname for this guy. Strong body, good fighter's spirit but the most important stay he plays competitive and use his strengh but for fun, fair, sane, and respect every body. He said he is beginner but it's not the truth. He has skills and know some good holds and used well. We had really good sweaty strong sessions on my mats. When we stay the competitive level on the side of mats, he learns really fast and always want try more and new moves or holds. Good stamina, lot of strengh, he cant stop on mat and always happy to practice more. Really great guy for amazing sessions.
Outside mat, really good friend. Lot of humor, easy to discuss and pass good time together. Fantastic guest.
I have 1 regret : a weekend is too short time with this guy. Just hope meet him again soon. And his you have the occasion to meet him and like sweaty competitive grappling sessions but safe and fun, don't hesitate you will have good time with this strong solid man.
I could write the best and longest recommendation for this chap and it still wouldn’t be good enough. I’ll do my best.
He says it was an honour to meet me, if anything, the honour is all mine. This guy was the perfect host and the perfect opponent. Polite, fun, easy going, respectful, considerate, safe, experienced, skilled, strong, friendly and sane.
I was amazed and very pleasantly surprised to experience his skill and strength first hand. He knows what he’s doing, how to do it and was generous enough to coach/teach me. I had an awesome weekend and could have easily spent a week there and it still wouldn’t be long enough.
If you are lucky enough to meet Alain, do not even think twice about it and just meet him, you will not regret a second of it.
I can’t wait to meet him again and I hope very very soon.
Solidman is a very appropriate nickname for this guy. He is solid physically , as a fighter and as a person. As a wrestler is strong, fast, smart.
I didn’t stand a chance. He’s a natural and enjoys a good fight. He is unstoppable and takes his fight very seriously yet is extremely correct.
I greatly enjoyed the time we had off the mat: relaxed and fun,. Not a dull moment. Amazing, is the perfect word to describe it!
Definitely looking forward to a second match!
Br1mat is a great guy. Really easy going, funny, respectful and most of all... amazing.
Despite the fact he is a beginner he has good instincts and learns very quickly. Be interesting to see what he’s capable of in a few months time.
Look forward to our next match.
Solidman is recommended by GEOFFESSEX
I won't judge this match by win/lose....I was a distant second. I'll judge it by it being just the best physical workout with a controlled , skilled, nicely aggressive ( in a totally sane way) and strong built grappler who really knows his stuff.
Great company on and off the mats, I'm looking at diary for when we can go again.
GEOFFESSEX is recommended by Solidman
Geoff has been one of these guys who I’ve always wanted to meet. And I’m so glad we met. And i know I’ve has a good wrestle when I’m achy the day after. 2 days on and I’m still achy.
Built, fit, strong, fantastic shape, easy going and just perfect on and off the mats. I’d wrestle this guy everyday if I could.
Finally managed to meet this great grappler. He's reliable, skilled and very genuine when he wrestles.
I knew from the outset when arranging this meet, he was a guy not to be messed with. Although competitive, l felt he was a save, sane and sensible when wrestling another guy.
Although, l was loser of the match several times, Solidman certainly didn't hold it against me. He's very level headed, knows the agenda and let's you find the right level.
I would wrestle him again and again, and recommend you meet him ASAP.
Finally managed to meet MEGrapple. Great guy on and off the mats. Good build. Strong. Skilled and very safe.
We went at it for 90 mins and I’d have quite happily continued for another hour or 2.
Despite the many taps I got out of him, I had to work for every one of them.
This guys is highly recommended for anyone that wants a good wrestling session.
What is there to say about this awesome wrestler,, he’s one of the toughest, strongest and technical wrestlers I have had the pleasure to have met,, also one of the nicest.. I would like to say I gave him a good bout but in all honestly was outgrappled, out manovered and outclassed on the mats... He knows his stuff alright,, but is safe, reliable and sane.. he agrees rules and sticks to them.. If you’re looking for a good tough wrestle with best,, Solidman is your man...
What a guy. Big, strong, safe and just great to wrestle. Such a lovely guy on and off the mats. Had the advantage of his slightly injured knee, which I’m glad about otherwise I’m not sure how our match may have ended.
If you’re looking for a fun competitive or non competitive man, this guy is highly recommended.
Hope we meet again and soon.
"Solid as a rock man" should be is name !
An unbeatable strong and technic guy !
But so gentle that it is a real pleasure to try !
Thank you for this meeting, Solidman !
A rematch in a one vs one session maybe ?
JOW is a skilled strong grappler. He may look a little shy and innocent but don’t be fooled, he Has great experience and flexible body. Determined and knows how to defend well.
Safe and sane, considerate and just a fun guy. Hope our paths cross again.
Solidman is recommended by wrestlerdu
Solidman challenged me. We met in Hildesheim. Solidman is a strong fighter, you should not be fooled by his smiling face, otherwise you've already lost. We had a sweaty fight and a lot of fun. I can only recommend Solidman. Also next to the mat, Solidman is a nice and friendly young man.😀
Thumbs up.👍 I'm looking forward to the next fight with him.🤼♂️
wrestlerdu is recommended by Solidman
This guy has the strongest grip I’ve ever experienced. The handshake said it all. Big, strong, heavy, safe and sane.
Despite how determined he was to get a sub out of me it didn’t happen. Don’t underestimate his strength and power, if he gets hold of you he won’t let go easy. Highly recommended.
Solidman is recommended by submissiowrestling
Soldiman is really good especially for a beginner. We had a lot of fun wrestling. He was tough and strong guy. He knows how to defend well. We both sweat a ton so we were slippery. I'm glad I was able to teach him something too:) He was easy to chat with and I hope to see him the USA soon. Hope we get a rematch one day.
submissiowrestling is recommended by Solidman
Met SW for a grappling session and so glad I did.
This guy is extremely skilled, tall, big and very safe.
The only problem was that we sweat as much as each other. We were pretty much swimming in it.
This guy was a good challenge for me and I’d recommend him to anyone else who wants their skills and techniques challenged.
What a great wrestler. Young, strong flexible and with a natural talent for the game. Surely a star in the making. Solidman has a great future in this activity if he decides to follow his natural talent and keep on wrestling. Thanks for the great time. A real gentleman on and off the mats. Hope we get to meet again soon.
What an absolute honour to have met and even wrestled this man. Wow.
Humble, experienced, respectful, calm, amazing, I could write every single positive description of this man and it still wouldn’t be enough.
He was kind enough to teach me a couple of moves which I shall certainly practice as soon as I can.
I won’t even mention how amazing he is off the mats. I really hope our paths cross again.
Wow. Awesome wrestler. I mean, naturally balanced, smart agile and strong. A pleasure and an honour to be on his card. A very decent and interesting guy off the mats. Top recommendation
Ironbull is a guy I’ve wanted to meet every since I joined this site. And I’m very happy we met. What a lovely lovely guy.
Strong, experienced and just great to grapple with albeit being short. Witnessed his boxing skills and I’m glad we didn’t box as he would have probably destroyed me.
Of the mats, I could have spent hours talking to this chap. Interesting, interested and most importantly fun :).
I very much look forward to meeting him again soo.
Solidman is recommended by Marcofighter
This guy i can recommend to everyone who is searching for a real competitive match and for those who are able to accept that there is nothing to do than to tap.
A real well shaped man with unbelieveable strenght and power. You feel exactly that he enjoys wrestling. With a smile like an angel he enjoys to destroy you. Even if you think you got him in a hold he can resist and a second later he surprises and submit you.
Off the mats i can not describe with words what a real good man he is. For me definetely a "helping angel"!
Meet him and you will see that i am right!
Marcofighter is recommended by Solidman
I wasn’t sure if meeting Marco will happen as I was visiting Hannover for the weekend and didn’t know if time will be possible. I was hoping we would meet and I’m very glad we did.
Polite, considerate, well spoken and a strong opponent. I think he was a little surprised by my power but he was determined to fight me and tried to get a sub out of me. Marco is strong and determined but The stubborn in me was too stubborn to tap despite Marco’s efforts.
Outside the mats, this guy is fun, funny and great company. I really hope our paths cross again and we get to meet. Oh and thanks for being our designated translator :).
Incredible and indestructible. I couldn't beat him in spite of a hard fight. He's one of the best fighters I know. I could put on grips but he always resisted. I don't know why he can grappling so well. I am mega impressed and have found my master. I thank you and look forward to the next fight. You're a great man and extremely strong. Best regards from Germany 😋👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
One of the best matches I’ve had. This is one of the nicest guys I’ve ever met. Kind, strong Safe, sane, strong, relentless and has very high stamina.
As soon we got on the mats I knew he’d be hard work. And he was. We went at it for a good 150 mins. We were essentially swimming in our own sweat. This made for an interesting match for sure.
Despite me tapping him a few times, he wouldn’t stop, his stamina is amazing. He is something else on the mats and I was very lucky we met. Highly recommended guy. Hope we meet again soon.
Solidman is recommended by StrongGrapplerLondon
A kind and courteous wrestler, strong and hungry to fight. I was hesitant about meeting at first but he was very considerate and made all the needed arrangements. Fun to chat to before and after and a very solid fighter on the mat. He is seriously out for business. My very highest recommendation- and everyone should meet him. I am looking forward to meeting him again. And next time I will of course punch back. Great guy.
StrongGrapplerLondon is recommended by Solidman
Despite SGL’s very wary approach we finally agreed to meet yesterday. The guy has good skill, technique and great defence strategy.
It took a bit of time to finally relax and grapple. There was a very obvious holding back from his side in fear that I’d lose “my cool”. Losing my cool isn’t what I am about and SGL quickly realised that. Only at that point did we really start grappling and start having fun.
SGL then quickly realised what he was up against, a strong, skilled, powerful and undeterred beast.
We traded some gut punches which was interesting but I’m more into competitive play that staged play.
Sadly our match only lasted an hour instead of 2 due to SGL’s commitments.
Overall SGL is skilled, safe and very sane opponent. Hope our next match has that bit more fire to it :).
When I saw that Solidman is visiting my place I just knew that I MUST arrange a fight with him. Had been Looking forward for that match for our a month.
It was worth waiting. Even though I might be bigger and stronger his skills and technique are AMAZING. It is true I only got one tap out of him even though we wrestled for 2 1/2 Hours. He was just all over me again and again. Even my strong legs couldn't break his Defence. But still I was great and I loved every moment of our fight. He is just a great Person. Cool to talk with safe and sane and just overal a must meet! Cant recommend him high enough. If you get the chance meet him you won't be disappointed ;)
This is a very nice and friendly chap. We met up and had a nice chat while on the way to the matroom.
I couldn’t wait to wrestle this big guy as I’ve been looking forward to meeting him for quite sometime.
This guy doesn’t disappoint, he is strong, big and has good stamina. However I think I may have been a bit too strong and skilled for him. He got a sneaky tap out of me (which admittedly I let him have) and he admittedly agreed that it was the only way he’d get a tap out of me (and it was). Let’s just say I lost count as to how many taps I got out of him. And I worked hard for every single one.
We got far far too sweaty though. It was difficult at times but we both managed to cope somehow.
He has a good sense of humour, safe, sane and cheeky :). I thoroughly enjoyed meeting him and would recommend him to anyone who wants a good match.
Solidman is recommended by ffighter009
Solidman is a very powerful and skilled fighter.If you are looking for a tough, competitive match, I think this is your man.
We had an intensive match, sane and save. Over two hour of wrestling and body punching. I will definitely want a rematch. And than I will tap you more than once!!!
Highly recommended! Thanks Mate
ffighter009 is recommended by Solidman
I knew this guy would be a challenge the moment we shook hands. So much you can tell By a handshake. His was a strong grip kinda shake. Wasn’t rattled by it but I was certainly confident he wasn’t gonna go down easy.
Friendly. Reliable. In good shape. Rough. Safe. Sane.
Despite this, I gave him a really good fight. Sadly he didn’t get to tap me once but I tapped him many times. I struggled not to use my knees and legs as his body was just far too tempting for me :). Elbows and fists didn’t stop and I enjoyed every second of it.
However, we’ve both kept it friendly and safe. I’d certainly meet this chap again for another rough scrap.
Solidman is recommended by braintreejack
This guy manages to combine being a beast and a gentleman at the same time. Strong, agile, safe and sane and able to mix it up at the drop of a hat... Very rarely do I enter a match looking forward to rolling but at the same time having that sense of trepidation that I’m probably going to get my ass whooped ... I did!
The whole match was great fun and I hope the next time I can offer more of a challenge...!
braintreejack is recommended by Solidman
Very rarely I leave a match still buzzing, and very rarely I spend the day after still buzzing.
This chap is just amazing. Perfect body, great attitude, strong, reliable, skilled, safe, sane, respectful and most importantly a lot of fun. The list could go on and on.
I was more focused on rolling with him than counting subs. Takes a lot to turn a match from competitive to pure fun.
I really hope we get to meet again very soon.
This man is incredible. Very clear on his profile and in conversation about what he wants, but also willing to discuss the match to make sure it works for both of you. He is an incredible wrestler in the ring, and very hard to take control of, but equally he is happy to go at your pace. As you can see from his pics, he looks great in his gear. Big recommendation.
Chatting to guykent was easy and simple. Very straightforward and arranged a wrestling meet very easily.
Iwas a tad hesitant as I’m not that great at pro wrestling but he’s certainly made it really easy and most importantly, a lot of fun. He is patient and can certainly make the match a lot of fun vocally.
GK has a fantastic body and looks the part in the ring. Great conversationalist outside of the ring also. Highly recommended and hope we get to meet again.
Solidman is recommended by FightNHB UK
Solidman and I met and had a very good fight session which was very enjoyable, even though I was from the very start at a disadvantage as regards both height and weight and also from the fighting skills standpoint etc. Whilst he won the fight very easily it was nevertheless a very enjoyable session and at least was a good physical work-out for me.
Solidman is an opponent who can be relied on to always turn up as arranged and to put up a very tough, aggressive fight every time. He is physically very strong and is a very determined fighter whose punches/kicks are hard but controlled. I look forward to having the opportunity to meet him again at some future date, and hopefully to my being able to do a bit better against him.I would recommend him to others.
FightNHB UK is recommended by Solidman
This was one of the easiest meets to arrange. I was wary of the weight and height difference and whether this will get in the way of us having a rough brawl, it didn’t.
I absolutely dominated fightnhb and he just kept getting up and coming back for more.
We started off bare knuckle and within mins we agreed that I’ll put gloves on for his sake.
This guy took some beating and tapped a few times before finally admitting he can take no more.
I’m happy to meet again and hopefully he will bring a bit more of a challenge next time.
Solidman is a very nice polite guy with a good sense of humour, who it was a pleasure to meet and wrestle. He said he was worried about the size difference. I was worried full stop!
Our meeting was easy to arrange and went ahead without any of the hitches and delays that seem endemic in MF.
Sm is a tough cookie. The moment we hooked up on the mats my heart sank.
He is just so strong (I felt like a rag doll for much of the session)has limitless stamina and applies holds with effortless precision and once on your goose is pretty much cooked. The signature move is a suffocating headscissors which I was caught in several times, unwisely I had also agreed to body punches,kicks and knees and was treated to quite a few these in the course of the afternoon.
No idea how many times I tapped but it was a lot. But he is controlled and I had no worries about safety. I tried to up my game, but he was ready and easily frustrated my attempts (probably for the best, who knows what fearsome retribution would have been meted out to me had I succeeded 😱)
As he is not English Sm is unencumbered by the need to be self effacing or sugar coat the pill,
"Yes I am".
Me "I'm not doing very well"
SM, "No your not".
Though I think it's fair to say I made him sweat and he was out of breath each time I submitted.
In conclusion Sm would def be in my top 3 UK based fighters, is a lovely guy, easy to talk to and will make you laugh.
To my surprise he wants another match.
So do I!👍☠☠
Been chatting to tanker for a few weeks and we’ve finally met yesterday. What a lovely pleasant guy.
Meet was easy to arrange, he turned up on time (I was a few mins late) but we finally got the venue and after a few stretches we were at it.
I was very concerned about the weight difference as he is over 30kg heavier than me but I was lucky enough that this wasn’t gonna be a problem (for me).
We grappled standing and on the ground. I really struggled to bring him down due to height and weight difference but I finally managed to do so.
I got countless subs out of him and I must say, I could have easily wrestled him for a few more hours after.
Tanker is polite, considerate, safe and controlled. I very much look forward to our next match where he promised he would kick my arse ;).
Solidman is exacly as his name suggest, he solidly outperformed me and wiped the floor with me. Nevertheless I had a great time wrestling him, he’s very considerate and a safe opponent. Would certainly meet up again.
Tupsi was kind enough to arrange the venue. Was on time as arranged. We wrestled for a couple of hours. I had the upper hand the whole time and I think I was a bit of a struggle for him but that didn’t keep him from wanting more wrestling. It was a good meet.

He is as described in the profile and recommendations. Easy to set up a match. I could explain we first met at short notice, and just after I had done a hefty weights session ...but that would just be excuses. Most recently I had the hangover from hell. Regardless, I got my ass on a plate (though his idea of letting a guy up after a tap needs work😎). Tough, but sane, clean and careful. Happy to recommend, regardless of the verbals♥️. He's a sweetheart really.

We meet again after a quick Glasgow visit. Wasn’t much of a struggle for me. I enjoyed making him tap in different holds. Important thing is we both couldn’t get enough keeping away from going at it the whole time. Look forward to next time. Hope he brings more of a challenge then ;).
Easy to meet up with. Strong guy but seems his mouthy than he is physical :).
Good guy on and off the mats and would meet again. Good fight.
Received an absolute thrashing today from this very strong and highly skilled wrestler. However, the punishment was delivered with such grace, good humour and panache that I readily forgave him ! Solidman is great company and a truly fine opponent. In short, he is a must meet !
What a lovely guy. Polite, considerate and a great host. And we just couldn’t stop fighting. What a great session.
Despite the obvious difference in strength and skill this guy wouldn’t back down. Thoroughly enjoyed meeting him and showing him a few moves. He can certainly take a beating. Also a must meet.

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!!

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.
03/11/2018: Itʼs great to have the fight machine that is Solidman back on MeetFighters, and even better to have got a rematch in with him, thanks to DaveLonʼs generous support! The outcome of the match was never in any doubt, it was only ever a question of how much punishment I was going to be able to take, and even then Iʼm not kidding myself—if heʼd really wanted to get me to throw in the towel, he could have. The heavy and accurate punching is something else, and is obviously his specialty, but even if grappling only heʼd still make mincemeat of me. It is, therefore, rather a shame for my healthʼs sake that fighting Solidman is such a blast! Super strong, built like earth-moving equipment (heʼs well named), tough and distractingly handsome, fighting him really is quite the experience! But donʼt be put off getting into the ring with him just because heʼs a monster and youʼre going to lose—because heʼs also a very kind, safe, sensible and thoughtful guy, respectful of otherʼs limits, safety, and skill level, and a really lovely and interesting person. So take your chance to fight him if youʼre lucky enough to get it! 👍 The very highest of recommendations.
10/05/2019: Well hereʼs a turn up for the books! The Fight Machine is turning his hand to grappling, and forgoing his speciality punching and strikes. Does this mean I have the inkling of a chance to get a sub off him?? Erm, no.... 😂
Beat the crap out of him. Twice. Always always a pleasure. Good high pain threshold. My fists were getting more tired before his ribs started screaming ouch. A nice guy too.
10/05/2019: And so we meet again. Agreed to grapple rather than fight. Can’t say I managed to resist punching at certain points ;), SL puts up a good fight but my arm seems to like his neck a lot and just can’t keep away :). Great match as always and look forward to meeting again next time.
Had a great match with this tough, intense and scrappy wrestler.
Neither of us was feeling 100% but we managed to have a pretty competitive and enjoyable match. He managed to come out on top this time, but I'm definitely up for a rematch soon.
Nice guy off the mats, intense guy on them. Can't reccomendation him enough
Despite the fact that I had a very bad sore throat and had no energy to get out of bed let alone go to a ring a fight, I did.
I’ve been looking forward to fighting this guy for a long time and we finally have yesterday and he certainly does not disappoint one bit.
He’s built, he’s skilled, polite, respectful, safe, strong and looks perfect in speedos.
We grappled. We scrapped. We got really sweaty. He is resilient and determined. I was lucky enough to get a few taps out of him and he got one out of me. I hope we get to meet again and see how we do against each other when we’re both 100% health wise.
Solidman is recommended by jonny innocent
Solidman presented a fantastic challenge; strong, skilled, aggressive and determined to come out on top. But his warmth and willingness to adapt style and intensity to his opponent make him the ideal wrestler to face in the ring.
He enjoys wrestling. Intensely, I would say. And is genuinely interested in his opponent’s enjoyment too.
He is a nice guy out of the ring, but don’t expect the same in the ring. And if you decide to turn it up, beware. He will move in tandem with you, always staying just that bit ahead.
Once the match is over, he’s back to the nice guy again and it was good to spend a bit of time with him as we made our ways back home. Hopefully that’s not the last I will see of him; I am definitely up for more of that.

Despite public transport being a complete mess that day, we managed to both get there early enough to hit the ring. I honestly didn’t want to leave if it weren’t for our time being up!
This guy is tall, big and strong, a real challenge. I really struggled to bring him down despite my many attempts. We did subs, punches, knees, pro. This guy will give as good as he gets. I really hope we meet again soon. Hopefully next time he can get a sub out of me for a change ;).

Met Solidman as part of a group meet. He's a great guy. Fit, strong and fun to roll with. Great physique too! He can roll at all different intensities which I love. Definitely recommended and looking forward to taking him on again!
SPWrestler is recommended by Solidman
I finally got to meet Spwrestler and he was certainly worth the wait.
Skilled, patient, strong, experienced and just lovely. I could have wrestled with him for hours and he would have certainly kept up with my stamina easily.
I highly recommend this guy and can’t wait to meet him again.
Fantastic opponent. The name fits reality and Solidman is really Solid, competitive and tough fighter.
We met for as part of a group in North London and the experience was very rewarding.
Solid man fought one opponent after the other nearly without breaks for the best of two hours.
Very powerful opponent that I want to have the honor of fighting again.
What a guy. He is massive in every sense. Hands, thighs, calves, arms and chest, just a massive hunk of a man.
Yet, he is friendly, respectful, polite, strong, safe and sane. One of the nicest guys you could ever meet.
We rolled and exchanged tips and shared techniques, and I can’t wait to meet him again :).
Solidman is recommended by DenverWrestler
had the pleasure of meeting this great guy at a small group meet at Walthamstow. he's a tough fit grappler with good skills (try getting past his legs when he's in the guard position) and quickness. the best part is that he's a fun guy to wrestle – very controlled and safe, laughs and makes you laugh, and doesn't take any of this too seriously. fascinating guy to talk to off the mats and has a very warm friendly personality. really enjoyed meeting and wrestling him, and I highly recommend him.

April 19 update :
Round 2 with the beast - safe sane and violent - perfect. Love the face of concentration when he’s ready to unleash and the pure joy when we both for feisty and rough....haha - round 3 soon my scrapping chum ;-)
Round 1 :
Man...he’s a beast like they say.
First ring match and what an opponent.
Mind the lethal knees and strong choke skills learned by brawling lads from here.
Got me frothing for a second go!
Cheeky with a healthy side of evil and good blokey aggression.

Round 2 April 2019:
Improved his game. Good fists and strength. I restrained my knees pretty much the whole match. Look forward to round 3.
After a very long time messaging and goading each other we finally meet at Walthamstow.
Aggressive. Hard. Rough. Heavy. Sturdy. This guy is fired up for a great fight.
He has a solid body that’s just very punchable and kneeable. I couldn’t keep my fists and knees away.
His ribs got it big time. I found it hard to stop even when he was down. But I did. And back up he goes ready for more. I got a few taps out of him too which was fantastic.
I loved fighting this guy and I certainly do hope we meet again very soon. If you decide to take him on, watch out for his fists.
I met Solidman for a match in London. I knew he was strong but I could not imagine that he was that strong. Thankfully we had agreed on a no-punching session, as I was aware of his aggressiveness when punching. He quickly adapted to my level and we had a session that I greatly enjoyed. I am looking forward to having a new session with him and keep on learning. He is a great guy on and off the mats and we had a good time together. I can highly recommend him to fighters of any level as he adapts himself to the other fighter’s level easily.
JCastle is a Lovely guy. On and off the mat(tress)s.
Fighting in a hotel room is always awkward but we made it work. I had the upper hand but I quickly adjusted to a level that was comfortable for the both of us.
He is as flexible as he is nice. Just watch out for some of his sneaky moves where he will try and get you in a hold.
Solidman is recommended by Judomonkey
Been a while, but I have fond memories of fighting this fella...
No attitude; no drama; no excuses; no ego; pretty much does what it says on the tin...
Agressive, competitive, unrelenting and learns quickly. If you’re looking for war then this is the right chap. Bring your best game and don’t let your defences down.
April ‘19 - And then yesterday, I give him a bit too much slack, just to test things a little and he justifiably takes advantage and taps me out.
Well executed on his part, completely deserved and a little too over confident on mine... I learn and apparently so does he.
Judomonkey is recommended by Solidman
This is one of the nicest people you could possibly meet. That’s until you start fighting and he gets that determined look in his eyes. That’s when you should start thinking you should run for your life. But even then, he will find you and he will kill you :).
Consider yourself lucky/unlucky to meet this man. I am Very happy to have known judo monkey and fought him.
Unexpected fight arranged on the day. That’s how easy and straightforward meeting this guy is.
I never feel I’m struggling against opponents but JM makes you think constantly. You never know what he’s capable of or is about to do. He is quick, calculated, smart and most of all safe.
I was physically being thrown from one end of the mats to the other. All 86kg of me. That’s impressive skill and power.
He is determined and Relentless and probably the most fun fight to date.
As for that sub, I still have no idea how I got that sub but I will put it down to luck.
Solidman is recommended by oldscrapperderby
Had an unexpected short match , and he greatly lowered his game to make it fun instead of wiping the floor with me! I loved it , great guy on and off the mats with a great attitude ,highly recommended.
When Solidman asked me to fight my initial reaction was to say no due to his tough reputation. That would have been a bad decision and I would have missed out on an excellent fight. I found it competitive and aggressive but also great fun. I felt totally safe and that he has the skills to adjust to his opponent's level. Unfortunately, just as the scrap was getting more intense, a recent neck injury flared up and I had to call a halt. That was a big disappointment as I was just about ready to get him to sub for a change.
He is a genuinely good bloke and funny with it. You will not be disappointed if you take him on.
What an attitude on this man.
He’s strong, Skilled, Tough, Doesn’t give up easy, relentless and most importantly a lovely guy on and off the mats. Felt completely safe and very controlled. Respectful yet aggressive.
Got a couple of subs of him but I wouldn’t use this match to judge his performance considering he had a bad neck.
It’s such a Shame about his neck getting in the way but I really do hope we meet again very soon. I feel we’ve unfinished business we need to sort out.
Until next time big man ;)
Solidman is a solid man, he is very strong and very quick (or burger king sometimes), I was very surprised by his rapidity, and his secret speciality to make you tap. He love wrestling and fighting very competively, he want to win. If you like very sportive fight chose him. He is also a very nice and respectful man, very reliable, and always ok to fight, even if he is exhausted. I hope I will meet him again
We finally meet. One of the nicest people you’ll meet on here. But do not be fooled, Once he’s on the mats he means business. Strong, skilled, technical and very aware of any situation he is in. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed wrestling him and equally enjoyed being in his company. I hope we meet again very soon.
Oh and he is great with his camera, if you’re lucky enough to be snapped by him you’ll be left with outstanding results :)

We fought 2 days ago and I am still buzzing. Probably the best grappling match I’ve ever had. I realised as soon we shook hands that this wasn’t going to be an easy fight. And believe me when I say, it wasn’t.
We were very much evenly matched and for every tap he got out of me I got one out of him straight away. Even if the score was 5-0 or 0-5 this review would not change. One of the greatest people I’ve ever met.
He is strong, safe, determined, technical, high stamina, lovely, aggressive, strong, I could go on and on and the list would be endless.
I am very happy to have met this chap and really do Hope one day we meet again.
A great wrestler, skilled and strong. A very special sense of humour I like very much.
Un très bon lutteur, expérimenté et fort. Un sens de l'humour très spécial : moi, j'aime ça.
Did ever an opponent so live up to his name on here. Solid is an understatement...this guy is built for battle. I knew, as soon as we stepped on the mats, that this would be a tough fight, and it was just that. Solidman really knows how to target his opponent, deploying fists and knees to wear them down, and leave his mark!
I don't think I've had such a sweaty match...we were swimming in it after just 10 minutes. He's an exceptional fighter, although his methods won't be to everyone's liking. After I've recovered, I'm sure I'll be back for another mauling!
this guys is Fit, muscular, calm, safe, in control and very determined.
I realised he wasn’t going to be an easy fight after about 20 seconds of locking with him. Within mins the mats were covered in sweat and were sweat skating all over the room. Probably the most enjoyable submission match to date.
We agreed there will be little body strikes. I really had to restrain myself but my knees, fists, heels and elbows were too keen to batter him. He utilised his knees eventually too, few more matches and this guy will be dangerous.
He does not give up easily, he does not let go easily and gets up ready for more. Managed to get one sub out of me and it could have been more if it had not been for my stubbornness and determination. Got about 4 subs out of him but i was enjoying myself so much I wasn’t counting the subs. Very much looking forward to our second match :).
A week later and another fight with this brilliant fighter. Lost easy but nearly two hours of hard really enjoyable wrestling and fighting.
Got one sub and close to one or two more but he got loads more and was in total control. Incredibly skilled and very strong hard and aggressive. But also an amazing lad and a pleasure to meet and spend time with.
Look forward to many more challenging fights with him to come.
Started chatting and a few weeks later we met and had a first fight.
Brilliant skilled strong aggressive fighter. Hard but respectful of limits and judges his performance nicely. He beat me easy but pleased to have got a couple of subs off him. Worked hard for them.
His kicks and punches are awesome. His body is even better in the flesh. And he’s easy and good to talk to.
A great, great meet. Highly recommended.
We face each other off in the ring again. This time round I was determined to display what I am capable of. And boy did he take it. He got 1 sub out of me (I sorta gave him that). I won’t say how many subs I got out of him (but let’s just say double figures).
Still, id take this chap on any time. I have thoroughly enjoyed myself with him.
After chatting to this chap we met at Walthamstow. He’s keen, enthusiastic, great body, great banter and very tough. We wrestled for a while and he always gets up ready for more. I got quite a few subs out of him but he certainly surprised me with 2 subs which I was quite impressed with. He’s much better than he lets on so watch out for his moves.
Very much Look forward to match 2. The outcome will be very different.

Solidman is my ideal wrestler. Great muscular physique, super safe, intuitive, inventive and a genuinely nice guy. Looks the business in his speedos.
I had so much fun with him today. I taught him some holds and he was a complete natural - and even better was how he was able to improve and tweak the basic holds to make them even better. All the time I felt safe and could relax and enjoy it all. As a Boston crab officianado I was very impressed by his Boston. Well applied and solid.
Oh and did I mention his physique ?!

This guy is safe, controlled, friendly, straightforward, experienced, resilient and most of all BENDY.
What a fantastic evening showing me different holds and different pins. My god does he take his Time before he taps.
I feel I’ve learns so much from one session than I’d have learnt from other meets.
I very much look forward to pushing him to his absolute limits again and hear him squirm and feel him
Wiggle even more.
A cocky and stocky absolute BRUT of a guy, enjoyed a subs match (even if I was on the receiving end of a bit of an onslaught). He is very imposing, kept patient with my pain-levels, just don't bring a plate if you meet this guy if you don't want your ass handed to you on it!
That said, we had a great workout and I gave him, at least, a challenge on stamina. Looking forward to a second meeting.
Tall. Heavy. Great stamina. Great body. Good banter. Willing to learn more. Fights back And looks great in gear.
Had an awesome very very sweaty subs only fight with this chap. Struggled to restrain my fists and knees though (most of the time). Look forward to round 2.
Solidman is recommended by dadwrestle
There is a grave danger of running out of superlatives in writing this recommendation! Yes, straightforward and easy to fix a date and time to meet. Good pre-match banter! But nothing can prepare you for the match experience itself! This is one hot, hard, skilled fighter! Don't be distracted by his look in gear....a man born to wear speedos! You will need everything for the fight itself! He brings to the mats speed, skill, a sane but truly rough aggression, with an intensity that is a blast to face! I think I would liken his punches to a rivet gun lol! It must be stressed though that this is all controlled! He knows exactly what he is doing. I was TOTALLY outclassed, but had an awesome evening ! I think I can claim I got him slightly worried twice....but that's all! Off the mats, here is a person who is interested and interesting and a delight to chat to. So, all in all, I rate this man as one of the finest wrestlers I have ever encountered! 5 STAR PLATINUM RECOMMENDATION!
dadwrestle is recommended by Solidman
So, this has probably been the easiest most straightforward meet I’ve had. Arranged, agreed and arrived on time (I didn’t but he was kind enough to get the room set up for my slightly delayed arrival).
We chatted and within second were at each other’s throats in the ring. Big, strong and sturdy. Has good experience and good stamina.
We realised soon enough that I was at a much higher aggressive level than his and I was more than happy to tone it down (I hope i toned it down enough).
He fought back and got on top of me quite a few times. I have genuinely enjoyed fighting this man and would recommend anyone to take him on. Once the fight was over we chatted and talked and it was as interesting as the fight.
Thank you for a genuinely good fight and hope we fight again.

We’ve finally managed to get on the mats. And what a match it was. He’s a gentleman on and off the mats.
Very pleasant guy. Strong, determined and sane. I feared he would get a few subs out of me but lucky for me that didn’t happen. And lucky for me, I got 3 subs out of him. I think the mat room was too small for a scrap but we managed to make it work.
I ended up with a small cut on my elbow which was no one’s fault. I probably should have stopped and gone home. But I just couldn’t resist stopping and carried on. He has that sort of attitude that makes you want to fight him all the time.
I genuinely cannot wait to take him on again and hopefully have an even better match.
Solidman is recommended by subwrestler2
The best word to describe Solidman is tough. When he starts hitting you, you know you are in a fight. He gave me one of my roughest and most memorable fights I have ever had. It was nothing but rough, intense and exciting. Solidman delivers the perfect balance of hard rough fighting, safety, control, intensity and determination. In my opinion he is what I would call a perfect opponent to fight. But when he says he wants to fight you he means fight. I very much look forward to fighting him again soon. I welcome anyone to contact me personally for any further recommendation of this man. He is a Solid Man in every conceivable way.

Without formal skills the guy is powerful and determined.
We have now had three fights and he has beaten me in all and one day I aim to reverse that.
We fought for around 90 minutes which was a very intense fight.
If you want a hard challenge then this guy will give it
