Ruffnhard is so strong, tough and dominant opponent!
I might pick the most difficult match for me as the start of my wrestling life here.We wrestled for about 2 hours and I almost had no chance to break his holds and consequently tapped out easily . However,he is very nice and taught me a lot of submission holds.That would be a very impressive and useful experience for a novice to learn from and grow.
Need to improve my strength and practice more with other guys for now and go for a revenge in the future.
Derrick is a big lad, and when he learns how to use his weight he will be dominating most of the Sydney guys.
He is totally new to wrestling but very keen to learn, so we had more of a training session than a full on match.
I showed him the moves and holds and allowed him to apply them on me... I could tell he has a dominant mean streak in him by the joy on his face when he applied them right and saw their effect.
As he likes ropes I let him tie one of my arms to my side as a handicap... of course he chose my strongest arm to tie!
As it turned out it didn’t quite even the odds and I still got a few submissions out of him. :)
He is a big fun guy, and will improve with experience, which he is keen to get, come take him on while you still have a chance against him!

My my my! As soon as I saw this hunk of a man in the lobby wearing a tight, pec-revealing superman shirt, I knew I was in for a great time!
A sweet, polite and well-spoken guy, he was so easy to chat with I was actually curious if he was going to be intense eniugh for me, and then he got changed into his gear and mask...
What ensued can only be described as a ravaging tornado of pain... squeezes, joint locks, smothering and the torturous nerve holds were some of the things I remember. If you think you won't really suffocate in a crotch smother (as I did), you are wrong. There were parts of the match that are a haze now as apparently I took multiple, forced naps. I suspect I was KOd by body scissors too as I remember waking up staring into his heel mask with legs wrapped around my waist! Not willing to go down without a fight I think I did try resisting but it was like moving a mountain, impossible.
Once the demolition was over and the mask came off the sweet teddy bear returned and we spent some time walking and talking. As he was pressed for time, having to travel 2 hours each way to see me, I could not take him for a thank you meal so I can only express it here: thank you for agreeing to see me.
As I stare into the mirror tonight I'm starting to see my many battle bruises which will probably get worse before they get better, but will be a fitting reminder for this unforgettable opponent!
jobberasian is recommended by ruffnhard
Jobberasian is a quiet unassuming type, the type none of his acquaintances would believe would roll up to a hotel room to be beat up by strangers! (We fighters are an interesting lot!) He was so friendly I almost didn’t think it was right to brutalise him…But all sympathy goes out the window once on the mats!
He took sleeper after sleeper, multiple body scissors, chokes and smothers, bearhugs, nerve holds, and many many more tortures. Now I won’t say he didn’t tap, cause he tapped more than the whole cast of Singing In The Rain!…But he didn’t seem to mind that I conveniently didn’t notice his taps, pushing his limits, and he took it like a trooper.
An interesting character to talk with (when he was conscious) and a great host.
If you like working a guy over Jobberasian is very willing and able to oblige.
ruffnhard is recommended by Jobbercurious
This WILL hurt! Had a rough AND hard match with the muscular beast that is ruffnhard. As he put it at the end of a great 3 hour meeting- I looked totally "wasted" but was very a satisfied jobber with a great session of genuine abuse. I'm so grateful he made the time to see me and would recommend him highly.
Jobbercurious is recommended by ruffnhard
Curiosity killed the cat, however I let Jobbercurious live to tell his tale… But only just!
This lad absorbed 3 hours of punishing holds, punches, tortures and torments, and took it like a trooper.
Thinking back, all his cries of “please, pleeeeease!!!!” may have been begging me to stop rather than asking me politely for more, as had I originally thought at the time… whoops, my mistake, but he did seem to enjoy it regardless! ;)
Totally recommended if you want to unleash your mean streak on a willing victim!!!
Ruffnhard is a really STRONG and experienced man. The best I've met in Australia so far, no doubt about that. You have to work hard to face him. If you have the opportunity to have an encounter with him, take it and you will definitely not regret it.
Carlos is a very quick and strong wrestler, his grip strength is phenomenal.
With a very tight lean muscled body to punish and a cheeky cocky nature that makes you want to punish him even more!
He is fast on his feet , keeping me on my toes to make sure he didn't get the upper hand, but once taken down my extra 25kg kept him under control :)
Recommended for a fast, strong and sweaty match!
Mr.ruffnhard is very big and muscular. I don’t hope to win against him 🤣 but hey at least I can endure the fight for 3 hours. After that my body is sore. He really loves watching me suffer. He didn’t finish his punishment when I tap. So I have to endure more haha but thats ok, i like it. He would do it very slow and safe. Nice person off the matts. Recommended opponent 👍🏻
Totally impressed with this keen fighter!
Much more solid than his pics show, strong, and able to endure some good hard punishment!
He can take a solid punch, and can throw some good ones too!
Very willing to push and test his limits, and keen to learn... I showed him a few tricks and tips to improve his game and he happily applied them on me throughout the match. He will be quite a handful for any fighter in his same weight range.
To have 8 opponents already in his first 3 weeks here is a testament to his huge fighting spirit!
Hope for many more matches with him.... totally recommended!
I had the pleasure of meeting this hulk of a gentleman for the first time. Intense, gracious and strong. Great all around. Hope for a rematch soon
He is a strong muscle guy with a lot more experience in wrestling than me. It was an amazing match. He dominated me well thanks to his 95kg muscles. And he has trained wrestling for a long time. He is practically good at controlling me to make me struggling in his massive muscles but not causing me feeling pain after the match. He was safe and sane but good at making the match fun and enjoyable. I highly recommend him and hope we can have a chance to rematch.
Met this tenacious young fighter for a few hours of submission wrestling, punching, and a whole lot of fun. He is as ripped as his pics show, but way more strong and solid than they suggest!
Quick and with good technique, I believe he would dominate in a match with someone is own weight, thankfully I had a 20kg+ advantage to keep him under control :)
Very easy to arrange with, great fun on and off the mats, would certainly meet again.

Beefcake doesn't cut it ... More like Musclecake! :) Strong fast and skilled !
Had a whirlwind of a time wrestling him ... always looking forward to rematches - one of my firsts :)
Oh yeah - ask him about .. . THE ORANGE :)
growin dude is recommended by ruffnhard
Not sure how I neglected writing a recommendation for this big beefy fighter.
We have met a few times over the years, he is always fun, charming and very entertaining on and off the mats.
He has a good solid build and knows how to use it, be prepared for a fair bit of cheek while you are punishing him too.
Recommended for a good strong fun match.
ruffnhard is recommended by kennyrocks169
Hes huge o.o was quite literally his rag doll as a result of that but it was fun irregardless facing up against him... my back is quite sore and aching today :O
With that said, he respects your limits and it'll be a fun match!
kennyrocks169 is recommended by ruffnhard
When 95kg meets 65kg you just know it's not going to be a competition... what you don't know is how much fighting spirit, resilience, and tenacity the little bugger might have... and this guy had it by the bucket full!
No matter how many times, or how hard I took him down he would bounce back straight after tapping out. He absorbed every punishment imaginable and was still going strong after a few hours... In fact I think he'd still be going if I didn't have to call a stop due to other commitments.
Take him on no matter what size you are, he will amaze you with a fighting spirit not found in guys twice his size!... very impressive!
Taking one look at this mountain of a man with his bodybuilder physique, one with a lesser resolve would run for the hills at the idea of a match with him! Being the foolhardy adventurer I am, I arranged a match with him, as Don quixote would agree to a match with a giant. Fortunately, the man I met was no monster or windmill, but an easy-going guy with a great sense of humor and a magnetic personality! That is until we got to the match, where all hell broke loose as he released his flurry of claws, scissors, punches and kicks with precision. Our match made me ponder many beautiful ironies in life, that is, the best and only way to admire this man's glistening muscles and physique is to be near death's edge having the life squeezed out of me by his massive thighs! He always brought it back to a safe and comfortable place after a particularly intense and exhausting round, and overall a good man whose company you cannot miss! Highly recommended to wrestle him!
Wow, where to start with this recommendation?…This guy is a whole bucket of fun!
Madj is a very quick and feisty fighter, takes one hell of a beating and always ready to bounce back for more! Don’t take your eye off him, cause he likes to pounce like a tiger when you least expect it… lucky I’m an expert tiger tamer! :)
From wrestling with good strong body punches, to stand up gut punching he took many solid blows and can also deliver some impressive punches too.
Can’t wait to hear him yelping in my holds again!…A charming guy off the mats, a fun and aggressive guy on them, what more could you ask for!
I was so happy to meet this great guy on my Sydney visit!
He is amazingly strong and muscular guy, and also very skilled wrestler!
He beated me all the time and I had no chance!
However he is very safe and sane guy so I enjoyed our match!
very ruff and hard on the mat, but off the mat he is fun and kind guy. Highly recommend. really hope to have a match again sometime!
I was fortunate enough to meet K a while ago.
He is a solid beefy wrestler who is a heap of fun on the mats.
He took a lot of punishment, refusing to tap till absolutely necessary, and kept coming back for more!
Interesting and easy to chat with between rounds, strong and with a great fighting spirit during. Was very glad to work up a sweat on a hot Aussie summers day with this fighter!
Recommended, and hope to meet again!
Terrific guy to have your first or 100th wrestle with. Really nice bloke who was happy to accommodate and set up a match with. He helped show me some new holds and others in the community who might be a good matchup in the future. Most importantly he’s a very skilled and VERY STRONG fighter, avoid his headlocks! So, if you’re interested in a fun and challenging match drop ruffnhard a message. Looking forward to round 2.
Let’s get this straight, AK is one serious contender!
He gives a long hard match and keeps coming back for more… We wrestled for 3 hours with short breaks between taps, He is a big solid bloke who knows how to use his weight.
While he says he has no experience he has studied submission off the net and was able to convert his knowledge to practical use surprisingly well!… He’ll give you one hell of a match now, and with more matches under his belt will become formidable indeed.
Bring your A game when meeting this keen fighter!
Had a special "penthouse" wrestling match with Scott on my Sydney visit. He has a bodybuilder physique with big muscles everywhere and excellent wrestling/fighting skills . He gave me odds by recovering from /having a flu. Very strong arms, be aware of his headlocks and chokeholds. I really enjoyed our match and made him sweat properly. Outside the mats, really great guy, very easy to have a conversion with. Received a very good friend from down under. This was one of my best matches so far, looking for many more rematches in the future.
Met this BIG solid fella while I was suffering the flu, was worried I may not be up to the fight, however I managed to show him how the Aussies roll!… thankfully he didn’t catch my ills, proving he is as strong on the inside as he is on the outside!
A broken air conditioner in the “lavish” apartment made for a hot sweaty battle between two big guys over a few hours.
Was very impressed by FP’s commitment too, flying from another state to mine just to wrestle me and fly out again… some of the locals won’t travel more than 30mins to meet, we need more keen wrestlers like him!
A very interesting person to talk to off the mats, well travelled and many stories to share.
Glad we met. Top points to this big solid friendly fighter… Recommended!

Great guy to have my first wrestle with. Easy going, adjusts to your experience and teaches you a thing or two on how to wrestle. His pictures are exactly what he looks like. Muscle everywhere! Three days later and I’m still feeling exhausted ;)
Can’t wait to challenge you again.

Had blast taking on this young, strong first timer!
What he lacks in experience he more than makes up for with enthusiasm, stamina, and a fun cocky attitude!
JLP took some solid punishment and kept bouncing back for more, was keen to learn... with some skills this guy will be a killer!
Good looking, nicely built, fun, great fighting spirit... gets a top recommendation from me!
Bring on round 2!
ruffnhard is recommended by windupguys
You can't help but to know where you stand when you get opponent like ruffnhard. So I had to warn against having any assumptions that I will be strong enough to fight back their submissions. It was great that we both had the same kind of interest so the kind of match was agreed on before we met. I had good fun wrestling and gutpunching and rolled around all slicky. The amount of submissive pain was really controlled so it was both painful and enjoyable at the same time. Had a good chat in between rounds too. Time just passed by so quickly when you have a good session. Nothing more but a good recommendation when you fight with ruffnhard. 👍
windupguys is recommended by ruffnhard
Met with Windup after setting it up in a very quick easy fashion… this easy going guy is not so easy on the mats! He can throw a good punch, and take some solid blows too, both in stand alone gut punching and during a good hard wrestle. A high pain threshold saw him withstand a lot of punishment and only tap when he really had to. When setting up our match he told me he was a bit submissive and may not be much of a challenge for me… I saw no sign of this at all, he fought back hard and continuously throughout the match, just the way I like it!
A great guy to wrestle and chat with, and a lot of fun… we will meet again!
ruffnhard is recommended by heeljobb83
Taking on ruffnhard was indeed a rough and hard battle. Didn’t stand a chance fighting against the muscled beast. Nonetheless, he knows how to accommodate to his opponents level therefore it was also safe & sane match for me. Outside the match, he is friendly and he was also a good host. Fully recommended! Looking forward to have future re-match :)
heeljobb83 is recommended by ruffnhard
Heeljob puts up a very good fight, but unfortunately I made him live up to the last half of his name rather than the first :)
Very strong and fast fighter, and quick to learn a few moves and tips I gave him and was very happy to try them out on me.
Was a long sweaty match which saw him coming back for more, no matter how much punishment he took.
Would gladly meet this guy again… Highly recommended!
ruffnhard is recommended by steve92five
Ruffnhard is my first match through MF. And of course I am aware of the size difference. I am stroked when ruffnhard agrees to set up a match with me, and travels all the way to my place. He respects our size and skill difference. He keeps gentle and respectful on me despite all my dirty tricks. That makes me fight him with no reserve but he is just immune to whatever I do on him. Easy to set up match and super nice guy off the mat. For those who are intimidated by his size, don’t be. He is just a pro that loves rolling around. Aug 9, 2018.
steve92five is recommended by ruffnhard
Steve is a tough, quick and tenacious wrestler who is deceptively strong for his size.
Although he says her hasn’t wrestled for 10 years I think he’ll make short work of the locals who are in his weight category.
Fun, aggressive (in a good way), and easy to set up a match with, as well as interesting in conversation when not going for a sneak attack ;)
ruffnhard is recommended by ToeTheLine
So after chatting for a little while, and arranging a match with no fuss, I found myself squaring up to this powerhouse of a man....my initial thought was, what am I getting into here. Ruffnhard is powerfully built and his physique is not just for show, he knows how to use it as my body can attest to today. Ruffnhard met me at my level and a fun match ensued, he is happy to share his experience on the mats. I wouid recommend him if you want a ruffnhard match...it does exactly what it says on the tin. Recommended 👍🏻
ToeTheLine is recommended by ruffnhard
Met this hard bodied pugilist after a short chat. He claimed he wasn’t much of a wrestler, but more of a boxer, me stating I’m a good wrestler, with ZERO skills as a boxer…we decided to meet and see if we could find common ground.
Starting with wrestling, the first thing to impress me was his hard boxer type body, and his natural ability to defend. He needs some work on attack, but admitted he was a little perplexed with what, and how to attack someone my size :) I’m sure he would be quite at home against someone in his own weight division.
After several sweaty rounds of wrestling I thought it was time to let him shine with his boxing prowess… it soon became obvious blocking his punches was hopeless for a mug boxer like me, and I couldn't get past his blocking of me either, so I let him use me as his punching bag to show what he can do. He moved like a pro, and I could tell he was only using a fraction of his force behind his machine gun fast punches… I pity the fool that challenges him to a real boxing match or brawl!
To finish up I ran him through a few wrestling attacks which I’m sure he’ll put to good (or evil) use in future matches.
A great meeting of 2 different fight styles, and with a great guy to boot!...recommended
ruffnhard is recommended by Alan2005sg
This is one of the toughest fight I have encountered recently. Ruffnhard really lives up to his name. Fabulous built, limitless strength & stamina. He has a bodybuilder's body with all the firm muscles. Once you have caught in his headlocks or body scissors, the chance of escaping without tapping is very rare. However, thanks to my training, I managed to escape most of his locks but unfortunately I still have missed few.
The match was so intensive until we both lost count of our scores - but I'm sure Ruffnhard made me tapped more than I made him. He turned out to be a better man in this match.
Don't miss the chance to meet ruffnhard if he sent you a challenge / or if you visit Sydney. He is one of those wrestlers that can give you a tough fight.
Alan2005sg is recommended by ruffnhard
After many years of chatting with this fighter we finally met, and he was everything I expected him to be.
Quick, well skilled, and very very keen to keep the match going as long as possible.
A high tolerence for pain, combined with being very sweaty (as am I) made it a challenge to keep him in a hold and make it count.
Was a nice strong match, occasionally having to reset the action due to the size of the room not quite matching the size of this fighters spirit and enthusiasm!
Recommended to meet for those who like a serious, sweaty match if you are ever in the same location.
Easy going and flexible to arrange. Long fun match , although He dominated me, but I also made him sweaty a lot. Hopefully next time can learn some skills and movement from him!
This guy is not a pocket rocket… he is a pocket guided missile with nuclear warhead!!!
He has a natural instinct for fight, great strength, and endures a high level of pain. I truly believe he will make short work of anyone in or around his own weight division…thankfully I had 25kg on him and I needed every kg of it to control him!
Can’t wait for a rematch!
This meeting was epic! So happy and glad that I finally had the chance to meet and wrestle this muscle bull! He has one if not the best body I have ever seen so far, his strength is impressive and his wrestling moveset is stunning...with a big break in between, we wrestled over 3 great hours and it was just amazing :) Besides his wrestling abilities his brilliant shape and a huge set of speedos, he is such a nice person, helpful, open-minded and so on :) In addition to that, organizing the match was very easy and he took a lot of effort to meet me! I really hope I didn't disappoint him :) Since we already agreed on at least one rematch, he enjoyed it as well I guess ;)
I met this enthusiastic wrestler while he was staying in Oz from Germany.
A solid beefy lad with plenty of energy to keep bouncing back for more!
We wrestled up a good sweat for a few hours before taking a break for lunch to replenish the energy, then he was keen and all fired up to go for it again.
Takes plenty of punishment and does not tap till absolutely necessary… so much so that a few times I released the hold cause I didn’t think pushing it further would be a good idea!
A very keen fighter, easy to set up, and put in the effort to travel a few hours via public transport to make it happen… add to that his interesting and easy going conversation and he gets a full recommendation from me!
ruffnhard is recommended by Scissor Guy
The photo's don't lie, ruffnhard is very well built. He used his size to good effect, l lost count how many submissions l had to give :)
Great guy to wrestle, very safe and very good company for a rainy afternoon in Sydney.
Don't miss him on your trip down under!
When you first lay eyes on Ruffnhard, you know you're in for a serious tussle. But don't let his size be a deterrant. He adapts to your level so you both have a fun experience. But saying that, I stood no chance and was constantly needing to tap. He is also a great teacher giving me plenty advice to help me grow as a fighter. It was good to make the big man tap but we both know he kind of let me have those small victories.
Ruffnhard is a genuinely top bloke. I had a blast and I'm sure anyone who has a battle with this man will have a great time too.
Firstly, don't let his pics fool you, Tripolar is deceptively strong for his size
He has great stamina and just keeps coming back for more, I think he could have fought all day and into the night (which he actually did by following our match with another!)
Quick to learn and keen to apply new moves he will be quite a force with some experience under his belt.... P.S. I think he has found quite a taste for punching judging by the evil glint in his eye while he pounded away on me (That glint soon disappeared when I gave him a little taste of his own medicine!)
Very easy to set a match up with, his sense fun and a great fighting spirit leaves me looking forward to a rematch... Highly recommended!
I met ruffandhard so early after starting wrestling. He was nice enough to agree to meet me despite that. Had a great and fun session with him. This is one strong guy. Probably one of the strongest in Aus on this site. He just goes in for the grab and uses his power and weight very effectively. Made me submit so many times. It was fun though and I enjoyed the fact that I was able to take quite some pain. I was later able to give more resistance and also get a few moves on him. He taught me quite a bit. I will definitely meet him more in the future. When he wrestles can feel he is serious about getting a submission and won't let go easy. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to learn to wrestle better. He is also very safe. Had the place setup with safety in mind and was always considerate of my limits.
mmgg is a very keen wrestler, easy to set up a match with, and puts up a good struggle.
He has good upper body strength and a strong grip which will serve him well as he learns new moves.
Can take quite a bit of punishment and was always coming back for more, he is a quick learner and keen to try out the moves I taught him, with experience he will be quite a hand full!…. wrestle him before he gets too much practice!

Met this incredible fighter some time ago, great body, great pro look, amazing ability to absorb punishment.
Even though into pro he was willing and very able to take the holds when applied for real… no acting (which is always my stipulation with pro)
He LOVES gut punching and will take all the pounding, stomping, knees and elbows to the abs that you can give.
Highly recommended to those who was to unleash full force to the abs!
ruffnhard is recommended by OzScrapper
Where to even begin?... Just like when squaring up against this colussus of a man, I'm not quite sure how to approach writing a recommendation that would do him justice. Still reeling from the man, but that might be the lack of oxygen from all the expert chokeholds, smothers, scissors and headlocks I refused to tap out from until it was my physical action before passing out.
Off mats, top bloke, well spoken, sharp and accommodating. Seems like a great guy to know.
On the mats he has the build of a superhero but the attitude of a supervillain (in the nicest possible way). He was very aware and conscious of my thresholds and was very patient when approaching my limits with a precision that hurt, but I was perfectly secure knowing he wasnt going to injure me.
He has an incredible dynamic. A hulking brute yet skilled, a perfect gentleman and heel, intimidating and inspiring. An epitome of what meetfighters is about (for me) and just a great guy I'm glad to have met, thrilled to have fought and honoured to know.
"Highly recommended" doesn't do him justice, but you might want to book a massage therapist for after the fight.
OzScrapper is recommended by ruffnhard
I had a great afternoon of wrestling this tenacious fighter. He has good upper body strength, puts up a good fight, and refuses to tap easily (something he regretted for a few days of aches after the match!) He took 3 hours of punishment like a real trooper and is much more solid than his pics (time to update tuff guy!)
This is a wrestler with real fighting spirit, I would gladly meet again!
ruffnhard is recommended by Military Wrestler
I had a really intense and sweaty match with ruffnhard. Not only he is big and strong, but he is also very skilled with an extensive range of submission holds. It was a one-side match but I made him work very hard. It was really an enjoyable match. I'll just need to wait for the soreness and few marks to go away. Looking forward to the next match!
Military Wrestler is recommended by ruffnhard
Military Wrestler is a BIG imposing man, he is fun to wrestle, strong, and keeps coming back for more!
We wrestled for a few hours and he kept me working and sweating all the way through, he has the strength and the stamina of a bull, with more experience this man is going to be lethal!
Definitely need a rematch with this big impressive fighter!
My first impression was: "what did I just get myself into" He looks just as impressive in person as on his pictures here, I'm glad however I didn't bolt the other way. He's easy to get along with, patient, knows what he's doing and willing to teach. Be warned, he will push your limits, though that's not necessarily a bad thing ;)
An all around great guy, highly recommended.
Met this great little fighter in the past… He has the best fighting spirt I’ve seen in a long time.
Even after a shaky start due to having breakfast a little to close to match time… “Burp!… he recovered and put up a very good long fight.
Fun, spirited, intelligent and willing to push his limits… Highly recommended!
There's a bit of an urban myth (usually spouted by guys who don't do any weights at all) that bodybuilders' muscles are just for show. Well in the case of ruffnhard at least, I can vouch for that not being the case—he's super strong and easily overpowered me every time. It was a little like trying to wrestle a bulldozer into submission, and with the same result. I did, however, get two subs off him, by rather unfairly targeting an old injury of his, but hey, I had to avoid a total whitewash! (And we shall just ignore the 20 times that number that he took off me.) But the huge muscles aren't all that's in his arsenal, as he knows and can execute a good range of submission holds and punches hard and accurately. And it's not just the physique that you can take at face value, his profile name is what-you-see-is-what-you-get too. He's a safe and sane guy, able and willing to pitch things for his opponent's level and tastes, but if like me you're up for doing his favored rough and hard style of match, ruffnhard is what you're going to get, and it will hurt. I am, as a result, thoroughly battered and bruised: it was a cracking match in other words! Can't wait to get back to beautiful Sydney and hit the mats with the muscle again. Ruffnhard is a top bloke, an excellent wrestler, super tough, super nice and very highly recommended.
Thanks for the compliment Squashlad, I would never claim to be a bodybuilder… Simply a fighter who likes to look good. If I knew he thought so highly of my physique I may have been a little more kind with him on the mats… which I’m sure he would have absolutely hated, because this guy likes it rough, real and brutal!
We wrestled for over 3 hours in a non-air conditioned room which left us (and the mattress) soaked in sweat and totally dehydrated. During this time Squashlad took every form of abuse known to wrestling and at quite a high intensity…. yet he was the one who wanted to keep going 3 hours later when I unfortunately had to leave.
Squashlad is probably not the most accurate name for this fighter as he certainly does not just lay there and allow you to squash him (thank God!) In fact he fights back with all the determination and strength of some of the most competitive submission fighters I’ve met.
If you are looking for an opponent who enjoys a rough, brutal but sane match, coming at you with all he’s got, then you must meet this man.
Looking forward to meeting again… highly recommended!
It's amazing that I had opportunity to wrestle with this awesome man. I had enjoyable sweaty match and he was very kind to teach me some holds. The gut punching session was really hot and hard, too. He is definitely that man that you would very much like to wrestle with one day!
Had great fun with this tough guy a while ago.
Very strong for his size and had a great fighting spirit which saw him coming back for more.
Abs could take some good punches, and had a good strong punch to return.
Very open to learn and try new things… Highly recommended for a good fun match!
Ruffnhard was a gentle but beast of a man years ago. And I can only assume he is moreso now. He was very accommodating and fun to wrestle with, even though he is incredibly tough. It won't be long until we wrestle again, and I can't wait to see what happens now. He is amazing
Met this guy a few times many years ago while he was still living in Oz… takes all the punishment you can give and keeps coming back for more. Loved bending him into a pretzel and now see he is into gut punching… If you’re in the UK go pound him fellas!!!

Had a great match a while ago with this power packed, compact muscle fighter.
Great body, great fighting spirit, took a heap of punishment and kept coming back for more!
Puts up a good fight, with plenty of resistance, Enjoyed every second and would meet again in a heartbeat!

Top bloke- a real powerhouse and tough as nails. Thanks for a great match... I'll be sore for days!
All has already been said about ruffnhard! It was a fun match that we had a while back - very strong but definitely safe and he is able to adjust his strength accordingly, while still dishing out some serious punishment!
Met this tall, lean wrestler a while ago… much stronger than he looks, and able to take plenty of real punishment.
I agree with all that’s written about his legs being super strong… But mine were stronger, was great fun making him tap from his own favourite hold ;)
I would meet him again and see how much further I could push him!

Met this powerhouse of a man for a wrestle. One of the strongest guys I've ever met, seriously, bearhugging this guy is like bearhugging a sack of potatoes. This guy has muscles everywhere and if he wanted to, I would have been destroyed in seconds!
Highly recommended, nice guy and real gent off the mats too.

I met this strong determined wrestler some time ago... He has a good wrestlers build with strong upper body.
The match was fun and casual, but enough to keep the sweat flowing and the muscles pumped for a good 2 hours, the conversation was also fun and relaxed.
I'd certainly meet this wrestler again if our paths cross once more

This man is as tough and strong as he looks. Watch out for those vice-grip legs. He is a thick bull and difficult to get a hold on.... but great guy and really enjoyed getting to know him as well. In spite of being beat up; I'll be back for more.

Roughbuddy is the perfect name for this fighter I met a while ago... a buddy who likes to take it as rough as he gives it!
Strong, muscled, powerful, and happy to give and take body blows whilst in a hold.
Recommended for a good hard grunting and groaning good time!
stood no chance against this powerhouse. my arsenal of dirty tricks didn't even work...he gave 'em right back, even harder. (i'm still walkin' funny...) <g> i'd do it again in a second - great guy, hard sweaty bout.
great guy, very experience and strong.
had great matches with him
Tough and strong - I thought my size advantage would count for more but he was easily up to the challenge. Great bloke too! Looking forward to more matches...

What can I say that was not said before? A great guy off the mats and a rough mean and extremely good heel on the mats. He find a way to make you hurt and tapping no matter what you will do. If you like to suffer and moan this is your man. Highly recommended. Would love a rematch once I will recover.
Damn this guy is tough and can handle some pain. Very worthy and strong opponent - I would highly recommend him. PS - don't bother gut punching him - his ABS can take a serious beating without squirming. Above how stuff wrestler he is - he is also an awesome guy off the mats.
Wow, this guy is big... big, strong and fun!
Highly recommended for those that want a challenge, a skilled and strong wrestler who will really make you work on the mats.
A great guy to have a bit of a laugh with too, make sure you check him out when you find yourself in Sydney

A genuinely nice and interesting guy both on and off the matts. An experienced wrestler who easily adjusts his level for an exciting match. Very very strong. Watch out for the headlock. Will definately meet for a rematch sometime.

A great little wrestler who should not be under estimated, he has some very good skills under his belt and is a very strong fighter!
Put this guy on your list as a must meet if you are ever in his area.
Looking forward to a rematch when I return!

Awesome tough strong wrestler, and a hell of a fun guy. This man is a tank, no two ways about it, and though they don't look it, the legs are bloody strong. Just rough and hard enough to have a really great wrestle, moving from hold to hold, keeping it interesting and energetic. Very hard to sub cos he's so strong but knows how to use and limit his power to make it a great match. I'd do it again tomorrow. Thanks for staying for a chat and a laugh afterwards too mate!

Had a great match with this strong, determined wrestler... He refuses to tap easily and was happy to push his limits with the odd ignored tap too :)
He faught back strong and hard for close to 2 hours and was quick to bounce back for more!
A fun wrestler and a nice guy, hope to go at it again with him for round 2 sometime in the future
Very fun and nice guy, worth meeting up for a fight for sure. Super strong and tough...!
I spent a great afternoon wrestling with this tough fighter.
He takes a lot of punishment and knows how to give it back too!
Don't dare ask him to show you his boxing skills unless you are prepared for some solid blows... Got some killer body punches when he unloads!
Off the mats, a fun and friendly guy... I hope to meet again whenever I return
ruffnhard is recommended by muscldfighter
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!

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!

Heel? He certainly wasn't with me, hahaha! Seriously, we had a very competitive match. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it, especially since he's got the heart for the sport. I would definitely wrestle him again if ever I get the chance. Oh, and for the record, I won! :)

Had a great match with my mate Joey. Strong, fun and has a real love of wrestling. Oh, keep track of your submissions, if you're not counting em he is... Still reminding me of the score!!!
Can't wait to rematch and make him count how far ahead I am! :)
