I don’t think I need to describe how great fighter he was anymore cz many of his past opponents mentioned all. Really nice, caring person, extremely punctual, and gentle giant 😉 highly recommend!!
Muscldfighter is the man! Cool, friendly, and accomdating
Got forunate enough to have a gutpunching session with a couple of years back during my gutpuncher days.
He let me test my might and schemes on his guts. Damn! His midsection was like granite my most powerful punches he took like they were nothing! Fantastic session, man. I need to get stronger.
The next time we cross paths it will more a wrestling gutpunch match. I am stronger and more skilled now!
Between busy work schedules we managed to get a match sorted - and it was worth it. He got 3 submissions from me, one of which I gave away simply because I wanted to see how strong his scissors was. Tapped to a key lock too, but he had to work for it. Top dude. Looking forward to a rematch
June 23, 2019
Rolled again with this muscle-bound dude and it was a superb start to a Sunday. The guy can blast you off the mat with his skills but he wrestled to my tempo (which gets slower by the year!) in a good back and fro match that involved a mixture of strength and cunning guile to see who could dominate. Highly recommended.
We have met a few times over the years - including BMF (Before Meet Fighters). At the start he was a novice and just getting into wrestling. But over the years he has become more and more muscled, more and more skilled and incredibly recommended.
He has always been a pleasure to meet, don't be put off by his formidable body, it is accompanied by a gentle and disarming personality, modesty and good manners.
Highly recommended .
I chat with him for some years. Because of distance we have no chance to meet. When i told i will come to Singapore he arrange time to meet and fight. It is so nice. Joe is strong and musclar. He's arm full of power and can give many long time punch. And his abs looks like rock. I give him many hard punch and he still can stand on. Yeah, we take turn punching abs and play many rounds. Thanks for Joe to give me a great game. Don't miss him.
Joe met me at his hotel when he was in town after talking for many months. The man is built like a brick house and a gentleman in every sense. We mostly did a gutpunching exchange including some knee shots that lifted me right off the floor. Extremely happy for him to be the first muscle opponent that I actually got to trade punches with. I think I was the one who won the match because he didn’t want to take anymore, but you can check with him. Already looking forward to our rematch!
Solid puncher & taker. This guy is the real deal. Sturdy solid bod that can lots of hard hits and punches ! Dishes out good punches too.
Great guy with no airs. Unassuming friendly but the mild demeanour underlies a hard tough slugger who lives up to his profilename!
Highly recommended if youre looking to slug or be slugged, & if youre looking for someone who can last a longgggg time!
This stud is deservedly one of the best known and respected fighters on MF. We missed each other numerous times, most recently when I contracted bronchitis in Singapore, but made up for it with two hours of mat time in October at my Brooklyn home. As you likely already know, he is skilled in a variety of disciplines. But what is truly unique about him is his super human strength. I usually have little difficulty handing guys' strength up to 210-215#. But at one point, after I locked in an americana, he was able to resist and defend merely with the power of his right arm! Now that's strength! He also has exceptional speed for such a big guy. No need to add anything about his spectacular and friendly personality. He's simply one of the best, and I am honored to have him as my friend.
Finally met the LEGEND himself! This man is the real deal. After > 10 years of communication and misses in itineraries, we finally met up in his matroom in NYC. He has been wrestling more years than i have even known wrestling, and he definitely knows his moves and has the techniques. Even though i have (relative) youth and size/weight on him, he certainly has the skill and physique/strength/power to control larger opponents! His regular gym was evident enough. A true inspiration indeed!
Off the mats, a knowledgeable, well-travelled, sociable and friendly man. A fighter who should not be missed when you're in his vicinity or vice versa - and never underestimate this man, or you'll find yourself tapping out pretty soon! :)
I hope to get a 2nd chance to roll with him again soon!
What can i say about thisman that hasn't already been written. After many years and a few missed chances me and muscldfighter was finally able to synch up dairies and hit the mats.
What you see is what yoh get and he sure doesnt disappoint. He's as strong as you can see and sure makes sure that he uses it to make you work for every hold that you try and go for. I was sweating very quickly which shows that i had to work HARD against this beast of a man which was awesome.
He was gracious enough to give me a few pointers as well from his wealth of knowledge and appreciated it greatly.
I sure will be knocking at that door again for a rematch and to get to chill out after.
Looking forward to locking up again.
Finally met up with this huge man. Despite his seniority over me, he has the physique strength power & skill of a fighter half his age. Larger in life, his profile pics dont shiw up his true size. Friendly and safe, yet aggressive and competitive when needs be. & very accommodating to scheduling of meets.
Highly recommended if youre in London or if hes in your vicinity.
chatted with this guy on and off over the years..but at last about three months ago we decided to plan to finally get serious to meet up. My expectations were high so I made sure I trained hard for three months to be prepared for this guy...could have used another 6 months..lol..but we finally got together for a couple of hours of sweaty rolling around. Beyond my expectations..this man is bigger..and stronger..and tougher ...and skilled.. than I could have imagined and knows how to use all that hard muscle the way its suppose to be used. Some good pec and gut pounding was fun too. A real nice and respectful guy too no doubt. Cant wait till he is passing through my area again...KEEP ME ON YOUR LIST BUD!!...you are definitely on mine...
Been chatting with this man for eons. He is as his profile suggest to be. Built, an incredible physique, strong and powerful, he has the skill to boot! Do not let his facade & age fool you - a blink of an eye, and he would have you on your back and in a submission hold!
Easy to meet up and arrange. Definitely someone you'd like to meet when in his vicinity !
Muscldfighter was one of the earliest people who messaged me when i joined this community. being from a far-off land I had little expectation that I'd have a match any time soon - especially with this much younger, much bigger (by oh, 75 lbs!), much more experienced, well, "muscled fighter". But we did, and he's a really solid guy in both ways... and took the time to be a patient teacher.. We spent just under two hours rolling, (me) learning and both practicing technique. A hard fought contest would have been, well, no contest. reliable, gracious, super strong, skilled.. recomended! until we meet again... - gymrat
This guy is exactly what his profile purports to be.. Gym fit, solid, muscular physique. Training in BJJ, he is a force to be reckoned with. Great attitude, friendly and a gentleman on and off the mats.
A great guy to meet if you're looking for a guy to fight with no attitude, charming personality and no egos. High recommended.
This is one of the best guys you could ever wish to meet up and fight with!! No reservations and no exceptions! If you should ever find him in your neighbourhood then do yourself a favour and take up his challenge. A great guy and as a result of fighting him he's become a great friend too! I cannot recommend this guy highly enough!!
Of all the many guys I’ve had the privilege of meeting through this wonderful website I can unequivocally say this is truly the must meet guy! He’s intelligent, faultlessly mannered, a perfect house guest, and been a constant and great friend and sparring partner to me for so many years
I cannot possibly begin to overstate him and the great fights we’ve had over the years along with his friendship throughout
An ardent pugilist and fight enthusiast sums up this man succinctly. My first meet ever from the site, he was kind and patient enough to show a newbie the ropes, and teach him some basics of submission grappling. Till our last meeting, he still remains the ever zealous Coach, imparting whatever he knows to us, albeit amidst numerous tapouts - on our part! LOL... Skilled and physically fit, he steps up to any challenge that you throw at him.
Off the mats, an otherwise amicable gentleman who enjoys a good drink and yarn after a physical match.
He would be someone you would want to meet if you're looking for all the above qualities in a fighter.
Awesome bro, here
Everything cools about him have already been said
Wish you good times always
Finally got to roll when this phenomenal fighter with a sterling fight reputation. Strong and extremely skilled jiujitsu practitioner, i was pretty much his crash test dummy trying to survive for the length of our roll (with an existing MCL sprain)! Very safe and will adjust to his opponent's level with just a tad more to keep it under control...
Highly recommended for any fighter who wants to challenge and test their technical grappling skills!
Finally after quite a few years messaging each other we finally managed to arrange our match ! MuscleDfighter is a prime fighter . Strong , skilled , fast , stubborn .... we had a very even match . Both of us attacking and defending until the moment when we managed to take the fight to the floor . Probably one of the toughest victories I had in mf . We were both soaked in sweat after the match and our bodies sure felt the consequences of all the knee and punches punishment !! Outside the ring he’s an amazing guy ! Fully recommended !!!
I concur and attest with everything that has already been complimented about this young, big strong powerlifter and fighter!! After several missed timings, I finally had an opportunity to roll with this massive bull of a fighter. After a long standoff in the standup position complete with strikes and knees, the roll was taken to the ground where i concede the younger stronger fighter had the upper hand! Good hard safe fighter. Highly recommended for anyone of any standard and strength level.
Next time we'll need a more complete sparring game!
muscldfighter is a very great guy. we passed very good hours on my mat. he is very strong, strong arms, strong legs and more skilled than he want say :-).when he take your arms on ground you have no escape only have to tap :-). good kickboxer too. so we had good time in many styles of fight. but he practice very safely and it's a real pleasure to fight with him.
outside the mat a real friendly guy. easy to discuss easy to have fun.
I met again muscldfighter this weekend. He is stronger and stronger days after days so it is more and more difficult to make him tap. He has more skills than he thanks but in any case he gives very good safe fun rough session. It's a real pleasure to play on mat with him even if you finish tired but you finish happy.
Really friendly guest very pleasant to host him.
Really hope meet him again and again.
just hope he will come again to have more time on and outside mat. looking forward to that.
for sure if you have the occasion to meet him don't miss it.
Ad_idf is a technically skilled fighter in multiple disciplines of grappling/wrestling and fighting. He's strong but yet controls the flow of matches with technique instead of brute force, which makes him.a very safe fighter. An excellent coach and competitor, he will adapt to any level of fighters in any style. A good and must meet if you're in the vicinity of Paris.
Dont pass the opportunity to roll and learn from this man!!
2018.. had the pleasure and honour to roll and train with ad_idf again. Hospitable and friendly off the mats, safe & instructional on the mats. He was extremely patient in passing on technical tips and pointers. Unfortunately as a slow learner i could only glean a few. Always emphasising technique instead of force. Truly an expert and a great Teacher.
This guy is a real power-pac!!! I met him yesterday just before leaving my hotel to reach my plane back to Germany. And this was a real good decision. Thank you for visiting me, muscldfighter!
He is such a strong man - look at his profile and his sports-experience and you will know what I mean. Whatever he is a real safe and sane fighter and also looks for his opponent. Although I never had any chance to get this muscled man into a lock I always felt safe! Thanks for this! He played the same level like me (he could have done much more) and both of us had a lot of fun. At he end I found my way to defeat him :-)
Whenever you will visit SG, you have to meet this friendly guy! Highly recommended!
I hope to have much more time when I will be back in SG sometimes!
Met up with BikerBandit at last minute's notice just before he had to leave. Great guy, friendly (and tall!) both on and off the mats.
Still learning the ropes and moves, but with his height and strength he would be quite a challenge in the near future! :)
Travels a great deal, and could be in your vicinity real soon - a great guy to meet up with!
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!
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 can only echo what other people said great things about this guy ! Although we didnt have much time, it was a great pleasure to have a session with this muscle guy. I did gutpunching on him but nothing can break that abs! Its like brick wall...LoL. He didnt break a sweat while receiving those punches.! I requested to try some wrestling. Big mistake! Then we go back doing some gutpunching. We did trade gutpunching back & forth. He really pack a strong punch and i can really feel his punches. Really solid and yet safe & sane. Highly recommended if you guys have the opportunity to have a session with him.! Hope i will get another chance to have some gutpunching action... Cheers buddy!
What a huge pleasure and helpful experience it was to get a roll with this immensely impressive man at a meet in Manchester. Even though I was being cautious because of a knee issue I felt totally safe grappling with the fit, extremely muscled, strong, and highly expert 'muscldfighter'. As a relatively recent convert to discovering the joys of BJJ it would have been easy for him to have simply vanquished me repeatedly, but instead I encountered a man who was considerate, thoughtful and very patient in teaching me some of the skills I need and allowing me to practice with him. His quiet, calm, manner instills confidence and enabled me to concentrate well on improving skills such as escaping from full mount, guard and side mount. I learned a huge amount in a very short space of time. He has intimidating power available with a physique that would not be out of place in a body-building competition, except that in this man the muscle power is definitely functional....not just for appearance. An inspiring encounter and if I get the chance to repeat the experience I will grasp the opportunity enthusiastically. Highly recommended of course! An honour to meet him.
Been chatting with Davey123 for almost a decade, and finally had the fortuitous chance of meeting up with him on the mats. He has been quite the legend ever since i knew him from another wrestle-meeting site, and in person, he is certainly larger than life! Great physique, solid and muscular, he keeps himself in fantastic shape, as everyone else who has met him would concur. Davey also has the skill and techniques to boot- a testimony to his years of experience on the mats.
He has an injured knee (and i, an injured back) when we met, but we still had a great exchange on the mats. Much from him i can learn!
I hope i will have the opportunity to roll with this man again. And i would certainly recommend him highly to anyone who is in his vicinity or planning to meet him! Definitely among the true Greats of wrestlers!
Safe, sane, reliable medicine ball of muscle. Unless you can find a weakness or two, you will get a butt whipping, no matter the style of fighting you choose. What a fun time I had rolling with this considerate man. Not recommended to the faint of heart! For other men, bring your A game.
Joe is a great guy - can't say anymore than what's already been said - so skilled and strong - my ribs hurt like hell!! Thanks for the opportunity.
Toonarmy is an incredible fighter.. feisty, strong grips and learns fast!
I had a weight advantage but certainly didn't faze him at all!
Had a great time and an enjoyable roll. He'll travel to meet. Don't miss the opportunity to contact him when you're in his vicinity!
I had a great time with Joe. He was respectful, reliable, and fun. He clearly had more training and skill but he adjusted to meet me where I was. He is damn strong. That muscle is no joke. Great guy and nice to talk with after the match.
After many years of chatting online finally met up with muscldfighter. He did not disappoint was the match that I expected a tough opponent. Enjoyed his company good guy to hang out after the match, looking forward to second match if he ever gets the chance to come this way again.
Great guy with an incredible muscled body that he uses capably in demonstrating his Herculean power, skill and competitive spirit. We battled for dominance, pounding each othes’ thick muscled pecs and abs over and over... quite a contest.
He can dish it out relentlessly, and he repeatedly took my best shots in stride, continuing to come back for more. Very competitive and fun, while always safe and respectful.
Highly recommend Muscldfighter as a MOST worthy opponent and quality guy. Eager for our next meeting!
Musclematch is as solid and powerful as they come. We traded punches in a body punching boxing match, and he kept up the pace backed up with a mean power and speed that belies his age!
A friendly giant when the gloves are off, he is truly a gent in these part of the woods.
Highly recommended when you're in the region of New Orleans!
PS he wrestles too!
Having heard many good things about Joe it was (as many people have said before) a pleasure to meet on the mats. Joe is undoubtedly the best technical sub grappler I have had the pleasure of meeting (and indeed watching as he grappled with the other guys at the meet). He counters every movement of your body and turns almost everything you attempt to his advantage. Off the mats a most courteous, mild mannered chap, on the mats a muscular powerhouse that I for one found myself powerless to overcome. I hope that we get the opportunity to meet again and again - I cannot recommend Joe highly enough - a true sportsman!
A very technical fighter. His profile belies the person in reality. Physical on the mats, and a a man with Physique! Strong and powerful, there is nothing that hasn't already been recommended about him.
And a friendly giant off the mats too!
Great guy. Can only repeat what the others have written here. Loves fighting to bits, but is also good enough in it to be cool about it and explain and teach!
Jab is a skilled technical fighter with great stamina. Strong and methodical. He handled my weight difference of 15kg easily and had room for more!
Has a nice setup for a good exchange of moves at his place too.
Highly recommended if you are looking for a good powerful challenger if you're in his vicinity!!
At my meeting with muscldfighter in Singapore I was brought to my borders. Precise attack and defense techniques, forward-looking fighting and targeted use of his muscle strength, let me come to my limits. Joe is for me probably the hardest sparringspartner, which I had so far at meetfighters. With his exact techniques and his high sense of security, his friendly manner and the good conversations between the rounds and after our bouts, I can highly recommend Joe and look forward to another round. Thank you very much for your time. You are always welcome in Germany.
I knew taking on Muscldfighter may be biting off more than I could chew, but I love a challenge, and having waited for 10 years could not miss the opportunity. I certainly wasn't disappointed! On seeing him with shirt off, it was clear this guy has been throwing round a lot of iron at the gym for years. Impressive powerful shoulders and legs like tree trunks - I knew his punches would be formidable, and I wasn't wrong. A fantastic, memorable meet up and one I hope to repeat.
Joe is an excelent fighter. Strong like a rock and a true gentleman. Hope to see him again with another bjj roll. 💪👍
Met Coolguy in London. Strong muscular and powerful dude who packs a good wallop in his fists. Don't let his youthful demeanour fool you. He's a highly skilled and technically advanced grappler and practitioner of BJJ who can handle any weight difference with skill.
IF you are looking for a grappling challenge, hit him up.
Just met The Legend. Because of an injury at the very first minutes of the fight, we had no real fight, only a very friendly rolling, muscle on muscle, and with some funny bearhugs. Anyway, just to say here, Joe is build as on pics and more (he is a truly cute male...), so gentleman, and kind, and so impressive... We both hope meet soon again, and without any injury..., for a real male to male challenge and fun. I love his style and what this guy represents : COURAGE. See you soon mate...
Finally got to meet one of the most recommended fighters. Unfortunately our match was truncated abruptly but an unexpected injury.
Despite that, in the limited time, Judomars demonstrated his technical expertise and physicsl power on the mats. He handled the 15kg weight difference easily with his skill & strength.
Definitely a very advanced fighter who can adapt his skill to different levels. A friendly and hospitable fighter off the mats, & I concur with all the positive recommendations that every fighter has already said about him. A must-meet guy in France.
There has been too many good things about Joe & they are all correct.
After chatting for months, we finally had our first fight during his short stay.
It is good to start this year with tough fights.
This guy is a master of every combat sports: BJJ, wrestling, Muay Thai. All my attacks are totally not effective on him & I was fully on defence mode throughout the fight.
Joe has a bodybuilder shape that everyone is admired of. This guy is strong, skillful, & he has a good stamina. Throughout our fight with few short break in between, Joe has made me into many submission until I lost count. I did fight tough, but having an disadvantage in weight & size, I got no chance.
Once you fight Joe, you can't go back! I need to further improve my grappling skills so as to give him a good fight next time.
Muscldfighter is the kind of fighter who is powerful enough to do anything, skilled enough to make it seem effortless, and generous enough to make it fun from beginning to end. He maintains control, stays safe, and I recommend him at the highest degree.
I met muscldfighter some time ago - cannot believe I haven't written a recommendation before now!
He is a very skilled and strong man - who really knows his stuff!
We had a blast of a time - and enjoyed our match - our differing styles made for a very interesting encounter which I hope, one day, we can emulate once more!
Friendly, considerate and easy to talk to - he is a pleasure to meet!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - don't miss the chance to meet him if you can!
Keen fighter and wrestler. Has a distinct advantage in reach and height!
Also building up in the gym now and he'll be an even tougher fighter then! Watch out for his legs!
Friendly reliable and helpful kid
who you should meet up if in Copenhagen.
He was bigger and experienced yet he adjusted to me ..most especially i just came from an illness. A great fighter.
Only going for a gut punching session as I am still recovering from a surgery. He can take a lot, I need to train my abs ;-) I hope we can meet it again, then on he mats!
Joe, though powerful and very skilled, is always a gentleman. I enjoy wrestling him, and I enjoy his company.
I never wrestled somebody so strong like Joe. He has incredible strong arms and legs. All attempts to make him tap at least once were in vain. In comparison to him I felt quite weak and helpless. Nevertheless I enjoyed our wrestling a lot. And Joe is a very nice and respectful person. I also appreciated very much that he showed me two or three moves in submission.
Dag has great freestyle techniques which he applies effectively in a submission match.. coupled with very strong grip, he makes for a very challenging fight. A very nice gentleman overall... and highly recommended if you like a good hard challenge on the mats! !
Sept 16, The big man was just across the border in Malaysia so I could waste the opportunity for another match. Man I just love wrestling this guy even though he has a slight edge over me. Great wrestle and a awesome socially. Looking forward to the next time he hits the area.
Jun 16, has it really been 4 years. This guy still look incredible and solid as a rock. A methodical and very skilled wrestler that is a joy to meet. Socially a super friendly guy too. Took for a lovely Italian in the Arab district of Singapore. Where else could you do that. 10/10
May 12. Met up again with the legend that is Joe. A gentleman on and off the mats but he knows his stuff. Great wrestler and always the best of challenges. Outstanding recommendation.
Feb 12. Got the opportunity to meet this guy for a second time after a couple of years. Very skilled and methodical wrestler. After my beating a couple of years age this one was a very even match. Always a great guy to meet both on and off the mats. Offers some fantastic advice on technique too. Looking forward to another battle as soon as I can. Absolute Top recommendation. mark
Mark is a great guy in fantastic shape (and getting bigger, stronger all the time). Skilled fighter too (AND also getting more skilled and experienced). Keen grappler, sensible and sane, intelligent and very reliable. Travels widely. Would be a sin to miss him if he's your vicinity! I would not miss my opportunity to get him on the mats again!
Update May 2012: Mark_uk has gotten huge.. thicker, solid abs and he's been training at a club.. Good to catch up again and had a good roll.. he is always a good challenge- skill and strength wise!
Always a good meet with Mark...
Another 4 years past.. Leaner, more defined and more solid. Every few years, this man improves in physique, power and skill. A real inspiration !
And socially a great guy!! Always a pleasure to catch up with this jet setter, and much one can learn from him...
I had just returned home from my vacation in the Unites States and before my arrival home I had planned to wrestle this guy. As soon as I saw him I knew that I was in for trouble. I had never before seen such muscular guy, so I felt sure that he could crush me like a fly, even though we both had the same weight. Well, I have never disliked even impossible matches for at least I hopefully can learn something, and actually I did learn something from being caught in his vice scissors. Scissors is not just a test of pure muscle power but also stamina - and I did not have stamina enough for that! So when I finally gave way he simply pressed all air out of my body so I hardly could breathe. I better do a bit more training so I can be better prepared for next time, for I would love to meet and wrestle him again if he should come over here again.
I normally don't write long recommendations. But this guy is truly exceptional.
Strong. Skilled. Well built. As much as I hate to admit he is right, he has upped my expectations of future matches(indirectly has seriously motivated me to get back into training even more). Taking him on brings back memories of sparring in BJJ against bigger and stronger opponents.
I would be lying right now if I said I don't feel the after effects of rolling with him, besides the fact I was purely trying to just defend. Not that it's a bad thing. Seriously, it's a really good thing!
And yeah, he is not easy to get a triangle choke on, or any choke for that matter, and his upper body strength is something to be admired. Am still cracking my head on what type of submissions I could have used on him as my usual arsenal is definitely useless.
If he ever decides to change career, he would definitely be a superb coach.
If your smaller than my size, you better be skilled, if your my size or bigger, you'll need skills AND strength :)
All in, he is a super nice guy and knows his stuff(like really knows his stuff).
Look forward to taking him on again in the future(hopefully before I turn 40!). Seriously need to train up.
And to those who have not met him, your missing out on a really good time.
We will have a rematch! I won't be so easily duped into your armlocks again!
Strong fella who knows his moves! Trained in BJJ and muay thai, he is familiar with attacks and defence. On the mats, he's all out for a good (but safe) submission. Off, a very friendly chatty bloke :)
Definitely a good meet up if you're looking for a good match !
Met muscldfighter for the 4th or 5th time, and was definitely a very enjoyable time. Although it might be characterized as the meeting of two bulls, the "big bull" certainly put the "little bull" (me) in his place. Just too much damn muscle. I pretty much was crushed, and my pecs are still feeling the abuse! As has been stated so many times before, Joe doesn't really need more recommendations–he is a true gentleman on and off the mats, and a powerhouse of a wrestler. From our first meeting back in 2007 until the one this past weekend, it has been a pure joy to watch him grow in size and skill. I feel very blessed to call him my good friend, and give him the highest recommendation. I hope to see him in the future as I return to the US.
3/4/2011Just realised had not written a recommendation for this the nicest most accomplished Grappler/ Martial Arts expert & All round God. Have met twice & hope to meet again.
Known this beast of the east for 9 years.
Next life I want to be him, have a great body, kick arse & be loved by all who meet me.
This was our 4th meeting & this time I was not going to be intimidated by his power. Watching him limber up in a pair of red martial arts shorts, was like looking a pro fighter in peak condition. He always looks good but this time he surpassed himself. Interestingly since our first meeting we have both gained 40lbs (Muscle in his case ).
Locking up in the ring at rochdale I was determined not to be a walkover. I like to think I gave him a good work out, got him off me once or twice, got on top a bit, but essentially was always on the back foot. I did get a submission, not sure if I actually won it or it was awarded for effort!
Eventually though as I tired Mr Zen having calmly countered my attacks, he equally calmly took the inevitable subs from me. Sometimes with his eyes shut deep with concentration (Am gonna try that but only with a jobber) Sometimes with me on top of him & him lying on the floor. If only I could do that!
We had about 3 sessions in-between Joe taking on 2 other guys ( Both quality opponents) he gave me some coaching, but I fear it went in one ear & out the other (Not his fault)
Earlier in this recommendation I mentioned wanting to be Joe & kick arse, that is not really his style, he is calm, measured, like all great fighters he gets maximum effect from seemingly minimal effort. How I wish I understood the complexities of that.
Again like the all best fighters he is safe & sane, you can trust him to wrestle at your level . Amazing strength & stamina.
Finally this was our 4th meeting , he is a link with my early days of wrestling, so many have come & gone , in one case died. But the thing I really like about him is he has been prepared to keep in touch with someone who is distinctly average both as a fighter & in body shape, something I think we all know musclegods don't generally do.
He is a very nice easy going guy unassuming & modest (He will be horrified at what I have written)with a great sense of humour. I think you probably get my drift!
to recap: HUGE lad, great attitude, big heart and deffo a big wrestler :) Met tanker 3 years ago, and still always up for having a good wrestle with him.
2016: An update. Met Tanker again after 4 years. He grappling skills has improved significantly. Has become much more technical and methodical. His moves are deliberate and sets up his positions before moving in for the submission move.
A real pleasure rolling with this big man - genteel personality with an intimidating stature and a technical roll!
Waiting for our next encounter!
What can I say? Amazing physique and amazing fighter... Very relaxed and welcoming guy, a pleasure to wrestle- and the first of many times I hope. My top recommendation.
Definitely a guy to recommend. His profile describes it all. Strong, good grappler.. knows his judo and grappling - which makes him a powerful opponent. Casual demeanour but has serious moves on the mats. He'd as quickly apply a submission move as he would pass a compliment on you! :)
It was great to meet him finally after having been in contact for years. Too big and too strong. I couldn't submit him. I tried to put him in a triangle choke but couldn't even lock my legs around that monster muscle neck and arm. I had almost forgotten how it is in a fight when people don't tap when you want them to. He brought that memory back. I recommend that huge fighter to all guys who want to test their strength.
Powerful fighter! Finally got to meet Hunnog after years of connecting. Nothing i can add that hasn't already been said about him- Skilled, fast and uses techniques to his advantage. Strong and muscular, but does not rely solely on brute force. If you're looking for a good hard technical challenge, aggressive yet safe, Hunnog is highly recommended. On and off the mats, a polite and welcoming gentleman.
Finally met Daniellibra1986. Daniel is a great guy on and off the mats. Sincere, genuine and keen fighter! Despite his size, he rolls slowly, deliberately and with skill rather than brute force. Wrestles hard but safe and sane. Will be a formidable opponent once he brushed off the rust! LOL.... Highly recommended for anyone who's looking a good technical grappling match!
It was a real pleasure to meet this guy in person. He is incredibly skilled, very strong and an excellent teacher. Completely safe and trustworthy and a real gentleman off the mats. I hope to meet again! Very highly recommended!
Muscldfighter is an very pleasent opponent and beyond the mat a very nice person, with very good fighting skills in Submission Wrestling; Thaiboxing and Boxing. In all of this deciplines he is very safe and makes you feel comfortable. Also in explaining moves he has a very good Hand. If you have a Chance fight with him you will definitely enyo it.
A skilled friendly &, hospitable gentleman who knows his boxing! As boxing is not my forte, he went several sparring rounds with me adjusting to my level & controlling the intensity to a safe yet challenging pace.
Has a very nice setup with plenty of room for mats - that can be converted into a proper ring! Perhaps with more practice (& skill), I will get to trade blows again with this guy in his ring in a more intense match!
Would be definitely worthwhile meeting up when in London.
I've met and wrestled muscldfighter a number of times and can highly recommend him as both a skilled wrestler and an incredibly nice guy. He also has an exceptionally fine physique that I have watched him develop over the years that I have know him. Off the mats he makes a generous and fun dinner companion too–an all around good guy, beautifully muscled, and a skilled grappler. Wrestle him if you have the chance, as I will gladly do the next time we meet.
Met wrestlemat2001 a few years ago. Nice friendly (and large!) guy who respects to agreed limits. Enjoys a good roll and knows how to adjust his size and weight advantage for a safe and competitive bout for both. A good guy to meet up when you're in the Canadian vicinity!!
Wrestle this muscle hunk a number of times over the years. One of the all-time great wrestler / athletes and one hell of a decent guy. Every year or so we try and meet up somewhere in the world - that's how highly I think of this student. We’ve met in London, Singapore and who knows where next time. All the high praise the others have given in previous recommendations lets you know this is a very special guy!
No wrestler can get a high enough recommendation as this super stud does. Very pleased to have student as a very special friend. Coach.
My recommendation takes the same format as all the others here! Fantastic torso / abs / physique, perfect gut punching buddy willing and able to put his abs under duress. Also a keen and creative giver, knows how hard to push to keep things intense but long lasting. Enjoyed several gut punch meets - very much hoping our paths will cross again!
Hard to add anything that hasn't be said. I have only had one match with Joe. I would fight him again anywhere anytime. A great guy and wrestler. As I train and get better in the back of my mind I hope I have a chance to fight him again!
A powerfully built man with a pleasant, humble demeanor off the mats... and a fighter's spirit on the mats. Technical, smart, and strong. Highly recommended. We've had two great matches and I look forward to the third...
A technical fighter, trained in BJJ. Always had great rolls with him. Methodical moves and strikes out when you least expect it. Powerful and strong as well. Always enjoy a roll with him. Safe and respectful of limits, and he adjusts himself to the level of the opponent. Good, patient teacher too, to those who're less experienced and keen to learn. Great guy and highly recommended if you're in New York (or if he's in your vicinity!).. & some day i'll succeed in getting a submission outta him.. ! :)
Great competitor whether on the mats or stand up. Loved gut punching with him especially. While his normal visit has been postponed, I can't wait for him to visit to be back on the mats with him. He is WELL worth the effort of meeting with.
Update 14-May-2012 - Welcomed him back to my home for the second time during a visit to the USA. Due to a recent knee surgery I have had, we passed on grappling this time but still engaged in gut punching. He always comes into it with strong confidence that he will beat me, but once again, I managed to outlast him and then had the privilege of punching him until I said it was over. Always a fun time and great opponent. I look forward to his next visit though then we will most likely grapple as well where he usually manages to control me.
Met with him a few times.. and he lives up to his profile... Age is definitely not a factor, and he is ripped and solid as they come. Enjoys a good wrestle and skilled in close quarters combat. Toned conditioned abs and throws a good punch. Had good bodypunching sessions with him and he always delivers good! Anyone interested in a real guy and a mean slugger, go for it!!
Je is one of the strongest fighters i ever met. skill and very efficient. he teached to me a lot of stuff. try to catch him for a match if you are close to him you will not regreet it. Highly recommended
Joe helped me break in my new mats. Had a lot of fun rolling and he taught me a few things. Course, then he decided to show me who was boss and just slowly, patiently, turned up the pressure. I've never worked so hard for an escape (with no success!) before.
First of all he is trustworthy and reliable.
Had a good workout at the gym and a great muscle action with this genuine guy. He is very strong, the real muscldfighter. It was also a great time hanging out with this true gentleman. Looking forward to meet him again.
A tough, strong, and fun competitor. This guy impressed me by setting up our match 6 months in advance, and actually showing up on time. Soft spoken and humble off the mats, and tough when he gets on them. Always a fun match!
A great fighter- highly skilled, technical and strong- as stated in profile. Definitely reliable and no attitude fighter - patient teacher too. If you're looking for a match- intense competition, a good roll, or a coach - he's the man!
i travelled to bristol, to wrestle joe (my 1st on-line meet). he is a highly skilled grappler/wrestler. very friendly, good-natured guy. i learned plenty, when i met him. he has much more muscle now. so, beware! he'll be one hell of a challenge! great guy!
What a great combination of gentleman and powerhouse! This man is too modest, remarkable skill, toughness and strength, while still being fun and kind. And didn't mind teaching and rolling with a little guy. I want to wrestle him again. You would too.
What a great guy , great fighter , we went 10 rounds of boxing , the man can take a hit and dish one out but all in the best of ways ,he s a hard hitter and definitly knows when to unload! Im a huge fan ! He s a great wrestler ,very pacient and methodical ,I wish we had more time ! I could learn alot from him and he was really nice about teaching me a few things about submission wrestling , like I said , Im a Fan definitly ! Hurry back buddy !!!!!!!!!!!
lives up to his profile name.. :) Definitely has a ROUGH edge to him - in the GOOD way!
Great fighter, hard boxer and grappler. Clobbered me hard in a great match several times but always safe and controlled, watches out for his opponent.
Not to mention VERY VERY strong!!!!
Anyone wanting a good boxing match or grappling match with a genuine guy - skilled AND strong - hit him up!
Highly recommended if you're in LA.
i had an awesome match with this man! he is very strong and skilled and a really great guy too. We have kept in touch since our first match and plan a rematch someday soon. I highly recommend him if you want to have a good wrestle!
We had a good Hour of Grappling. It Was a Pleasure to meet & wrestle this guy, & I look forward to our Rematches!
He's Smart & Serious about Wrestling, But Not a Jerk about Winning or Losing!
Great guy and highly recommended! Knows his stuff on the mats and very strong. Don't pass up the opportunity to take the man on!
highly experienced and very skilled. Strong fighter and adjusts level to his opponents. Great guy and friendly personality. An awesome guy throughout.
Definitely highly recommended as 'the guy to meet' when in-and-around the vicinity of Wash DC!
I can only echo the sentiments of those who have already commented. He is a skilled, strong, tough competitor who is as great off the mats as he is on them. A great guy and a great match for folks who are looking for a good roll.
The pictures don't do him justice! He's a very sexy guy, but don't let the looks fool you. Great fighter, excellent stamina, and best of all even better teacher.
I've learned a few things and I hate to say, but I was forced to tap out 5 times out of 5. However, I'm glad to have met him.
Hopefully things will be a little more even matched as I gain experience. Outside the ring, he's a friendly and patient guy.
All in all a great guy.
Wow, what can I say that hasn't already been said?
Wrestle Joe once and you will be hooked (an in joke that you will have to ask him about! :)
Such a strong and technical wrestler, and took the time to share some of his formal training even though it would then be used against him!
We wrestled hard and fast for 4 hours and it will go down in my memory as one of the greatest wrestling experiences I have ever had.
DO NOT miss the chance to battle it out with this guy... a great fighter and a greater gentleman!
very strong, very determined fighter with a mean headlock!!
we went at it for 3-4 hours and he has proven to be a quick learner and mean fighter! Yes.. got a mean streak in him too!
Great attitude.. don't miss a chance to fight this man when you're in Sydney!
I had great match with this man last year.
he had great skill and experience in wrestling.
but I could not say I lost or even he won.
he is very gentle and nice man as other guys mentioned.
I really recommend him.
mattz is a highly skilled and veyr strong fighter. Despite what he sez, he does love a good challenge - and very strong HARD fight. THe harder the fight, the more he enjoys it. Also likes strength matches and tests of power - he IS one strong dude! Great guy, fantastic attitude, powerful and ripped physique to boot - one of the best in the Bay area.. a "MUST-FIGHT" for any serious fighters or dudes into strength matches! :)
great guy!!! finally met Borets for a grapple on a hard parquat floor! Sensible and strong.
Great attitude and a no-nonsense fighter! Definitely a good meet up!
Would like to have the chance to glove up for a few rounds in the boxing ring too!
Had a great time meeting and wrestling Joey, he is a great guy and awesome grappler! I highly recommend meeting Joey both on and off the mats! He is strong as heck and does not like to give up! Looking forward to our next match!
Anybody who knows him knows this recommendation does not even come close to doing him justice - but i will attempt:
Excellent fighter - very technical and very skilled. His reputation as a master grappler/fighter/warrior/martial artist certainly precedes him. On-and-off the mats, great guy with an interesting sense of humour! :)
Defintely worth a detour and trip to visit, if you're up for a challenge - whether it be a good hard grapple, a training session, or strength match - oh yes, strong as an ox as well. (PS.. 18"a is an understatement...)
Well, I told him before that a mutual friend said he had been voted as the most favorite wrestler in the UK, and if one reads what has been written here about him, that might very well be true! :) The first time I met him, I flew over to spend the weekend to wrestle him. I stupidly forgot my credit card, and he treated me to my meals. So thanks for all the food! :) As others have already said, he is a very good wrestler, and a gentleman on and off the mats. But beneath that smile and (I think deliberately) dorky exterior, there are flashes of mean which he tries to suppress – just like Clark Kent/Superman or David Banner/Hulk, hahaha! But that makes him more interesting, and without that streak, he won't be a good wrestler, right? :) I may not be in the same caliber of build or experience as him or the other guys that he usually wrestles, but I can truly say that he is my friend.
strong determined fighter. Trained in submission grappling and has nasty grapevines :) Good technique, great attitude and personality. Travels widely and always shows up when he fixes a match. Definitely a meet up when in your vicinity.
Strong muscular wrestler with good submission technique and stamina. Safe and sane on the mats and willing to teach you how he made you tap after you do so. Pleasant on and off the mats. Definitely hope to get on the mats again with him somewhere sometime.
skilled fighter - don't let his smiley unassuming nature fool ya. A highly skilled martial artist and judoka. Travels for a good match. Charming, great attitude and meticulous teacher/coach. Would definitely meet up again for more training and matches!
Ok, so here is someone who needs a recommendation really badly, right?
He has enough of them for ten wrestlers, but I want to add mine, since few fighters out there, if any, deserve it more. Joe is a class act – on and off the mat. The only "complaint" I have: He is so modest, he lulled me into believing he was just a beginner. Our clash on the mats proved otherwise. I'm eager for a rematch. You go champ! Cheers everyone!
I'll just echo everyone else: Very nice guy, great body, and skilled fighter.
His reputation precedes him: Very strong and trained in submission grappling. Big big lad.. Nice lad too till he takes you down on the mats! Uses his weight and strength effectively and a good technical fighter. Real, genuine, and a must-meet in Chicago.
Reccomendations doesnt fully reflect the skills and attitude of this gentleman!
Very experienced, take you on at any level, from total beginner to very advanced full-on fighting!
It was a very big honour and pleasure to finally meet you Mister! Anytime again!
My warmest reccomendation! One of the best out there.
a fantastic fighter - great on the mats, skilled with his fists and VERY VERY STRONG!!! You name it, he'll take it. Great teacher and fighter. Takes on all levels and always willing to share techniques and pointers. Fantastic attitude, charming personality - beats you with a smile :)
Travels widely and you should not miss meeting him if he's in your woods!!!
I've met muscldfighter twice and both matches stand out in my memory as some of the best I ever had. A great guy on and off the mats, I couldn't recommend him more.
very nice guy !! very strong and good technician
hope we could meet again
One of the best matches I've had all year. A really great guy who was not only fun to wrestle but also great to hang with. I look forward to a rematch the next time he's in town. Highly recommended without reservation!
He lives up to his profile- fun to wrestle, very strong and a very nice all-around guy. But don't let his quiet demeanor fool you- he's quick and has a few tricks up his sleeves. Once he gets you, it's very tough to escape. A very fun wrestler and I'm looking forward to our next match-up!
Simply the best! Great body, matched by wrestling skills! He's reliable, sane and a superb opponent. Don't turn down a challenge from him.
I just read this member's other recommendations, and I whole-heartedly agree. Terrific guy, fun to wrestle, very reliable. Wish I was working him over (and he working me over) NOW!
He is a good friend with a pure good heart as well as an experienced fighter in multiple disciplines. "In it for the fight" and knows how to stay within his opponent's limits, but can push opponents and himself to next level.
