Profile of Greekwrestler2 (43)
Athletic, Greek guy, have been wrestling for about 8 years now. Love an intense , but safe and sane grapple. Lean towards submission but open. Much better ground game, but very open to working on stand up and incorporating strikes if mutual agreeable. Approachable, and respectful of skills, and boundaries. (Nice guy on and off the mat) Have wrestled many more than show on my resume, but it speaks for itself of who I am.
Thanks to the guys I have wrestled over the years. You all have been amazing and am grateful for the experience and the brotherhood we have built. Lets do this!!

They say good things are worth the wait!! After a year build up the day came to settle the score with this muscle stud. Match planed, walk in, gear up, tap gloves and fight!!! Intensity, aggression, the battle was on and no holding back. Locked up, struggling, two studs fighting for dominance. The sound of gloves hitting his hard chest and abs and neither of us wanting to loose. Watch those legs as they will wrap around you tight squeezing the life out of you. This was what men were designed for to go to battle. Intense, amazing match ended shifting back to the brotherhood and respect two fighters give. Amazing fight, great connection, and a rematch guaranteed. Fight this dude, you won't regret it.
Greekwrestler2 is recommended by Ftlfightr
My best matches are often unplanned and by chance alone. The stars aligned for Greek & I to have a much needed sweaty man to man match. A strong, but sane grappler. His bjj training is evident and was quick for his size. He’s the perfect coach for a beginner or tough opponent for the experienced grappler. I look forward to the rematch.
Ftlfightr is recommended by Greekwrestler2
Being on this site for almost 8 years there have been folks I have talked to about wrestling and it has never come to fruition. Ftlfightr understands the urgency of a match. In 40 min from hello to to going to battle it didn't get more real than him. Safe, sane SWEATY match, filled with intensity, skill, and fun. FTLFIGHTR I can not thank you enough for turning an evening of network tv to a perfect time. Gents, if he challenges you, take it and be ready.. You will not regret it.
Greekwrestler2 is recommended by HARD ONE
On my trip to Orlando, I had the great pleasure oh fight this incredible guy.
Extremely Competitive with strength, technique and outstanding host.
He welcomed me into his house as if he were a goog friend.
When visiting Orlando, do not forget to invite him to a fight.
HARD ONE is recommended by Greekwrestler2
They say things unplanned are often the best. It was hello, lets wrestle and 1 hr later I am staring at this tall ,strong warrior on my mats. Great wrestler, safe, intense and fun. A deliberate fighter on the mat, and very pleasant, and kind off. If you are challenged by Hard One, it will be worth your while. "Have a great one" :)
Greekwrestler2 is recommended by Lightning
GreekWrestler2 is a great guy and that’s what’s most important for me to note about him because in this community, safety is a real fear and I would suggest that he’s an exemplary model of sportsmanship and respectful conduct. He’s also a kind human being who tries to do right by everyone.
He actually saved my butt with a rather last minute change of plans caused by someone else flaking on me when I drove up to Orlando for a weekend and he let me come to his place a day early and welcomed me with a match and a place to spend the night.
On the mats he’s a deliberate, forceful opponent. He plays it almost clinical, very much in the school of people who treat a fight like a chess match. Definitely got the better of me, regardless of me being off my best after my trip which I wish I wasn’t and could have given him a tougher match.
He has a good space and he’s a considerate fighter. Sticks to the rules and conditions you lay out very strictly.
Would definitely recommend to anyone who gets near Orlando.
Lightning is recommended by Greekwrestler2
After a few weeks of chatting, and planning I had the pleasure of fighting Lightning. The day of battle there was no meet and greet, we got right to the fight like two warriors. Lighting owned me while we were standing. His strikes were intense, deliberate and powerful. My only chance to overpower was to get him to the ground, which was my goal at all times, because I had no chance standing up to him. The match was intense, brutal but always safe and sane. Lightning is the real deal, there is no "Play fighting" or "Theatre here", he is real and should be respected as such. Off the mat, intelligent, respectful, and brings good energy to the table. It's been a while. I have missed this guy , and hope one day to connect and fight again. If you are real deal, and Lighting challenges you.. Take the fight, you'll be better for it. I know I am.
Greekwrestler2 is recommended by The Dark Knight Returns
GreekWrestler is an amazing guy on and off the mats. When we first wrestle yes he was just starting and a little shy at the time but he got loose during the match and the battle was on. It was an amazing match. We did meet up a few times and every time he just got better and better. Awesome man and great wrestler. I look forward to a rematch soon. We’re way over do never a dull moment when we wrestle.
The Dark Knight Returns is recommended by Greekwrestler2
I had the pleasure of grappling with this great fighter back in 2011. Very formidible opponent, and knows his stuff. I was a newbie at that time, still learning the ropes and TDKR got me out of my comfort zone and made me a better fighter. Thank you Brother!!
Greekwrestler2 is recommended by salemathlete
WOW! 10 out of 10. Great host: hospitality, coach, and skilled wrestler. Genuine and total stand up guy. The positive adjectives to describe Greekwrestler are endless. If you’re in the Orlando area, scheduling a match with him is a must....regardless of skill level. Bring it because he will push you, but completely safe as he’ll stay in your skill level. Just be careful of those guns, his biceps, unless you want to tap out quickly. Definitely look forward to our paths crossing again!
salemathlete is recommended by Greekwrestler2
They say spur of the moment matches are sometimes the best ones! I can't say enough good things about Salemathlete!! After reading his reviews I knew I was going to have to watch out for those powerful legs, and he did put them to good use. A lot of fun back and forth, and some training this early morning match was a great time. This Southern Gent communicates well, and super reliable and a natural born wrestler. Safe, sane, and kind a total sweet man off the mats. If he challenges you, take it.. You'll be glad you did.
Greekwrestler2 is recommended by doyouevenwrestle
so after months of chatting , I decided to give the famous Greek Wrestler a go and boy did I miss out. the guy lives up to his reputation and beyond. All around GREAT guy. sadly for him our match was basically a training session where most of the gain was for me, since he taught me at least 3 new sub holds.
Genuine, strong, skilled, motivating, yet a total gentleman. Meeting Greek will definitely be a highlight of my time here.
doyouevenwrestle is recommended by Greekwrestler2
After months of chatting, and engaging, a very impromptu match took place. A little training (Talk about a fast learner) and we went live and let me tell you he's going to be a force to recon with. Some people learn to fight, this man is a natural. Off the mat the conversations just flowed, and you feel like you've known him for ever. Excellent communication, right on time, kind and respectful. If doyouevenwrestle challenges you, take it, he's well worth your time.

I cant give you the exact date of this matchup but i can inform you on how much i enjoyed meeting and rolling around with Greekwrestler2. Very skilled and tough on the mat and off the mat he is truly an inspiration. I highly recommend a match-up if you get the opportunity
cubby is recommended by Greekwrestler2
Talk about tough as nails!! This young buck fights hard and does not give up at all!! Had the pleasure of meeting up with this tough fighter, and let me tell you he brought his best game. Great communication, reliable, formidable and and all heart off the mats. Great match, and a greater person. If you get a match request from this young guy, you won't be disappointed.
Greekwrestler2 is recommended by Jester12
This guy is deceptively formidable, and tough, but he knows how much intensity to bring or not bring. Plus he is, overall, a beautiful human being! He is as great to talk to as he is to grapple. I'd recommend anyone meet him, because he is extremely open-minded and will definitely make it worth your while if you decide to lock-up with him!
Jester12 is recommended by Greekwrestler2
I’ve had the pleasure of grappling with Jester12 over the last 5+ years. Jestet12 is a skilled, formidable, and safe opponent on the mat and a great guy off the mat . I’ve been fortunate to have very intense matches with him, but have never had to worry about my safety. well worth meeting, you won’t be disappointed.
Greekwrestler2 is recommended by Deutsche1980
I was very lucky to have been able to meet up with Greekwrestler2 during my recent trip to Orlando. He is s formidable opponent on the mats, and a true pleasure to set up the meeting with, as he is communicative, easy going and reliable. If you want a fun and intense match, do not hesitate to lock up with Greekwrestler!
ps: I've got the impression that, on top of it all, he is most likely a great cook too! Next time we will include home made Mediterranean dinner into the mix!
Deutsche1980 is recommended by Greekwrestler2
I had the absolute pleasure of wrestling this very formidable opponent. If you are looking for The "Real Deal", someone who will give you a hard faught match but safe, sane and a true gentleman, Deutsche1980 is your man. Off the mats he is kind, extremely intelligent, communicates plans and is punctual. Thank you for the amazing experience my friend.
Greekwrestler2 is recommended by TBLHockeyGeek
Greekwrestler2 is a quality person. Not once did I ever get a weird vibe from him and for someone who is new to the scene (or at least FINALLY ready to jump in after just lurking for so long) - this is everything. Greekwrestler2 is kind, genuine, patient, and is an excellent teacher. His encouragement and understanding was extraordinary as he was able to put a lot of things in perspective. This was actually what I needed when we spent time just talking between sessions.
When it came to actually rollin' with him - good grief he's strong. He would first show a move or hold and then patiently walk me through it and try it on him. I always felt safe, never once feeling uncomfortable or in danger, even when he took me down and when I landed square in the center of my back knocking the wind out of me (I've never experienced that before and I couldnt breathe) he was able to talk me down from when I started to panic a little.
I wish I didn't take a month to finally meet up with Greekwrestler2 and I should have done it sooner. His prior recommendations don't lie... he is a great person to meet up with. For any newbs like myself, he has a great setup and is a great mentor and teacher. Always fantasized about pro-fantasy and never thought about trying submission wrestling... I'm glad I my introduction to it was with Greekwrestler2.
I can't wait for our next session. Thanks coach! ;)
TBLHockeyGeek is recommended by Greekwrestler2
After about a month of coaxing Hockyfool has finally stepped to "The Dark Side"!! This newbie was ready, wiling and able and have no regrets spending several hours training this lad. He soaked the instruction up like a sponge, and went from nervous to natural in no time. He was born for this and would grapple with him anytime. Kind, Respectful, Willing, Punctual, are all words I would use to describe him. If you get a chance you need to roll with him, highly recommended with my eyes closed, and looking forward to round 2
Greekwrestler2 is recommended by Crusher77
After chatting and trying to meet for over a year ... we finally did. Super nice guy, very easy to arrange location of match, well mannered, polite and clean. He knows his technical wrestling skills so watch out. He is very skilled at grappling. He is very safe and not out to injury or harm you. He respects any and all limits and boundaries. Beyond one of the nicest and safest wrestling you will meet.
Crusher77 is recommended by Greekwrestler2
After a year of chatting, I finally had the privilege of wrestling such a formidable opponent. Strong, skilled, safe and kind Crusher77 brings amazing energy to the match. A must wrestle and won’t disappoint. Excellent communication, and very reliable which seems to be a rarity. Real deal, real time and no BS, and a beautiful soul off the mats. Until next time brother.
Greekwrestler2 is recommended by FlMexican
He's a great wrestler; strong, fast and knows how to grapple! If you're not careful he will easily get you trapped and man does he know how to put on the pressure! Off he mats he was great to talk to and hope to go at it again!
Greekwrestler2 is recommended by Lorax
Greek and I have wrestled several times over the years. He's a great challenge and a master of moves. And despite his meat eating, Greek is a great guy. 😜 He's tough, strong, skilled, and a genuinely good person. But does he possess the golden briefs?
Thumbs up to this guy.
Lorax is recommended by Greekwrestler2
Have had the pleasure of grappling this tough guy a couple times. Great wrestler, and high endurance. He eats his veggies. What do you mean he don't eat no meat? OK like a good Greek I'll make him lamb. Seriously awesome opponent would wrestle any time.
Greekwrestler2 is recommended by Nakofi
Had an awesome time with Greekwrestler2. He is a very strong, skilled fighter; unfortunately, that was not enough to stop me from getting the best of him. He was the most generous, gracious host; an excellent conversationalist; and just as friendly as one could possibly hope for. Plus, he has a built, pleasantly hair body and a ruggedly, handsome appearance. I highly recommend him.
Nakofi is recommended by Greekwrestler2
Had the pleasure of meeting this tough guy on the mats. Strong, safe, sane and a must meet. Nakofi will not disappoint you in any way, a very formidable opponent. Great communication, reliable, and made it to my top 5, and that says a lot. Looking forward to our next match.
Greekwrestler2 is recommended by briansp
This guy is awesome!!!! Mike had some very detailed instructions how our match would begin - and I won't spoil it for you if he does the same for you but it added elements of intrigue and surprise. Incredible! We had a great match - pretty even - he got a couple subs on me and I on him. Safe and sane. A real gentleman. Fantastic host. We had great conversations off the mats and on the mat a real competitor. Can't say enough nice things about him. If you get the chance don't pass up an opportunity with Mike. Very much looking forward to Round 2!!!

Had the pleasure of wrestling this "Tough Guy". On the mat he's strong, skilled, safe and never takes the smile off of his face. Had a blast tossing each other around. Off the mats total sweet heart, gentleman and someone you feel like you've known for 20 years. For sure a must wrestle. Looking forward to the Re match.

Greekwrestler2 is recommended by Essex
Had an absolute blast wrestling this guy whilst on holiday in Orlando.
Felt like I've known him for ages, extremely sociable, great sense of humour and an awesome wrestler.
I could wrestle this guy everyday, so much fun and made the match extremely enjoyable with plenty of banter chucked in for good measure....chops certainly knows his moves and had me tied up on many occasions in his vast array of holds.
I haven't laughed so much in a meet and managed to find the cheeky boys weak spot lol.
A diamond geeza to wrestle and socialise with, up there with one of the nicest guys I have met on here.
Handsome fella too ;)
If your visiting Orlando, hit this guy up, you'll have a great time.
Definitely meet again when he comes across the pond or when I'm back in the states.
Essex is recommended by Greekwrestler2
FUN, FUN, Fun, What a great time with Essexwrestler!! I could wrestle this guy all day long and not get enough!! Tough on the mats, takes a lot of abuse and keeps on going and can dish it out too. He has definitely mastered the skill of smack talk. It is a tough decision if I enjoyed the grappling or the bantering more. (Cheeky :)) I have not laughed so much during a match as I did with this gent. Kind, competitive, and a handsome man, with a beautiful energy to add. I hope to skip across the pond one day and meet again. Highly recommended, a must wrestle you wont regret it. Thanks again for a great match!! Greekwrestler2 (Chops)
Greekwrestler2 is recommended by Perseus
Well what a blast! A great guy to wrestle. He's strong in good shape and can wrestle technically very well and gave me a good test. Was also respectful of my injury which I thank him for. Off mats a real character a great sense of humour there was a lot of banter and importantly he brought beer - top fella :-) Can't wait for re-match which will be soon - has my total recommendation. Wrestle him if u visit Orlando you won't be disappointed.
Perseus is recommended by Greekwrestler2
What a great time!!! Good wrestling, great energy and TONS OF LAUGHTS!! Such a lovely person on and off the mats. The min I walked in the door welcomed with a friendly greeting like a friend I have known for years. On the mats very technical, experienced, respectful and fun. Perseus took some time to share his knowledge, and made the match a lot of fun. Off the mats, engaging, warm, sweet personality, quick witted, and laughed a lot. I would recommend Perseus with my eyes closed and if you receive a challenge from him you'd be a fool not to take it, a guaranteed fun time.
