This guy is the real deal in so many ways. Great guy, skilled, really into fighting — but with an emphasis on serious competition— and he can modify his game to make sure that happens. He’s also in terrific shape. Think the pics are impressive? The real thing is more impressive - more muscular, leaner and altogether more intimidating.
The evening was terrific. We’re very close in size, weight and strength - and a mile apart in skill, but this guy kept it tough and competitive while teaching all the time. After more than two hours of exertion i was exhausted, yet happy; sore, yet energized.
If you really like to grapple, and especially if you like to grapple with people in the top 0.5% of physical condition, Fghter must be on your short list. Safe, knowledgeable, and fun. Sign me up again.
Gymrat is a grappler’s muscle/fight dream come true.
He’s strong, with a perfect fighter’s build: shredded as hell, athletic, competitive, fun, and determined to lock up on his opponent as hard as he can. We are very close to the same size, and feeling his power straining and challenging mine was as good as it gets! He’s also sane, respectful, and has the confidence of a fighter who knows the muscle artillery he’s bringing to the table.
We had a blast and I’m looking forward to more matches with Gymrat. (PS: He was great about stayin in touch as we figured out the logistics, and even arrived early after putting on some miles to get to my hotel). As he gets more BJJ and submission grappling moves under his belt this dude is gonna become a tap out machine. But, speaking from experience, feelin that much ripped muscle getting you into a hold and keeping you there as he struggles to tap you out will have other kinds of upsides!
If you are lucky enough to get a match scheduled with this Gymrat, you’re in for truly rockin fight session. Highly recommended. If you’re bringing a great attitude, a really fit bod, and a willingness to go at it 100 percent, FIGHT THIS GUY!

This guys is great to hang and grapple with. Strong, masc, fast on the mats, and keeps goin at it hard.
Fit and tenacious, he'll def challenge a man, and can def take gettin worked on and worked over. Serious stamina.
If yr passin through you def should check this fighter out!
fghter is recommended by IndyWarrior
In a weekend full of great rolls, this guy gave me the most aggressive ones, and that is a compliment. We were pretty competitive, but the only two subs which happened were his, though I felt like I got close once. Anyway, I made him work hard. :-) Wrestle this guy if you get the chance!
His name says it all, he's a fighter, so, even if you are lucky and strong enough to dominate him, he will not give up easily (sometimes not at all) and he will find a way to turn things around and to his favor again. He looks great in his pictures, but he is even stronger than one expects! He's a real challenge and he loves to have matches, meeting people and roll around on every chance that he has, so, make sure to contact him if your around!
A_Victor is strong, tenacious and very experienced in with chokes and strangulation techniques. He's in great shape and plays the choke game with sure and safe hands (attached to really muscular arms!). He''s got a fitness model's bod and even tho exclusively choking is not all I'm into, his profile is super clear and honest, and, going in with that mindest, he fully delivered a great workout and a hot muscle on muscle experience. (trading real chokes with a dude for over an hour is an awesome shoulder, chest, and arm/forearm/wrist workout!). He's def for other guys who REALLY get into chokes and strangulation techniques, and he's great at trading them back and forth for long sessions. A real ripped, gym sculpted fighter's bod, and a super hot guy to experiment with this particular end of the fighting spectrum. If choking is something you dig, I'd highly recommend Victor!
singletwrestler89 is recommended by fghter
Strong, athletic, skilled, and a really chill and friendly guy. He's a REAL challenge on the mats, and we traded a ton of moves in a match that was super fast (my crazy work schedule) but really intense and a total workout! Lookin forward to rolling with him as much as we can while I'm out om the west coast. He's strong. Very strong. And fast. Very fast. His BJJ game is def on point and SingletWrestler89 is one of those fighters I could roll with for both serious practice as well as fun. We're within 5 lbs of each other so we're an equal challenge! He also looks great in compression shorts OR singlets! A real athletic built, strong, and hot, fighting machine.
Fghter is truly a fighter without the "I". The guy loves grappling and has no ego about it whatsoever. We had a fun roll from start to finish. Has a great attitude, a killer physique that looks just like the pictures, and some sharp grappling skills. It's always such a pleasure to roll with a guy who knows his way around the mat. And even better, we were well matched in size. I was glad he made time in his busy schedule to host me at his place. His centrally located mat space is pretty spacious, a perfect place for a technical match-up between two blue belts. I'm very much looking forward to round two next time I'm in NYC. Fghter is a really pleasant guy off the mats and a terrific host. Considering all the above, what's not to like? I can't recommend him enough.
I had an "off-the-charts" fantastic match with Tenacity who is EVERYTHING his pics and profile present and more. This guy is a GREAT submission fighter. Technical, strong, fast, and he's one of the very few guys at 150lbs whom I could not tap out (and I mean either at my academy or on this site!). It was awesome. We had an epic late night match that has spurred me on to up my game and be ready to even the scales next time - that's for HIS benefit; you hear that, brother?! ;) He's got a real pro-fighter grapplers build: Lean, defined and rock hard muscle mass. He's a bad ass and completely sportsmanlike all at the same time; He can trash talk ya if you go there and he'll also guide you through new moves if that's where the roll goes. We had a blast showing each other some cool holds as we rolled.
Just as importantly, he's a great guy to hang with as well, super chill and a real generous spirit.
He and I had tried to get a match going for a while and it was COMPLETELY worth the wait. I'm fully stoked for the rematch and I HIGHLY recommend this fighter to anyone looking for a great roll and workout with an experienced, truly athletic, and deeply knowledgeable submission fighter.
I had the weight advantage but that didn't stop him from giving me a hard time. Had a great evening working up a sweat with this strong lil guy. Look forward to more matches in future.
Very few guys check all the boxes on here and NormStorm one of those rare ones. He's a genuine fighter, a real sportsman, very skilled, strong as hell, and built like a true mma athlete. He's also a 100 percent for real, kind, and open guy off the mats. I'm pretty experienced at technical BJJ (High level Blue Belt (4 stripes); often tap out purple belts in no-gi matches) and this guy challenged me with EVERY move and hold. He tapped me out multiple times and that's a pretty rare experience for me on this site, or on the mats in general. There's a kind of thing you only feel when your opponent is both humble and also has a real high level of mat-confidence, when your taking on a guy who knows his skills , has power, and a fighting physique that backs all that up Normstorm brings all that everywhichway. One of the most experienced, fun, and, just sayin, hottest fighters I've rolled with in the last 15 years. If yr serious about yr fighin, or an athletic beginner lookin to get some time in with a true Jedi, absolutely look this man up if yr in the Bay Area and want to test your A-game.
fghter is recommended by renegade wrstler
Fghter is a good friend and unbelievably an amazing elite fighter! Always have a phenomenal and the best grappling time ever with fghter! He is stunningly hot and just seems to set the bar much higher than anyone when it comes to grappling; we had some best epic marathon battle and an awesome grappling chemistry.
I can endlessly and repeatedly go on and on, constantly say trillion great things about fghter, because he has impressively blown my mind away for being an excellent opponent over the years! Highest respect and recommendation to one of my best grappling bud ever!
renegade wrstler is recommended by fghter
Renegade and I have had multiple fights over the years and I'm proud to call him a good friend. He's super strong and got real skillz. A tenacious and powerful opponent built like a true fighting machine. A respectful beast on the mats, Renegade's a really great guy and someone you'd definitely want to hang with after he's kicked your ass! We've always had challenging and very even matches and if you find yourself in San Diego, with an itch to fight a slammin hot guy who will probably wipe the mat or mattress with you and then buy you drink afterwards, definitely hit this champ up!
Lugi and I have had two matches I give him the highest kind of recommendation you can give a fellow grappler on this site: he's an awesome fighter, a great guy, and as hot as they come. His pics are completely for real. Lugi is built like a genuine mma fighter; ripped, compact, and very strong, and possesses a great combination of aggressiveness, sportsmanship, competition, fun, and a real fighter's respect for his opponent. He trained in judo and submission fighting and it shows. We are very close in size and our two matches have been long and very even. He balances explosiveness with strategy, technique, with strength, and he will surprise you with both his speed and stamina. He's also a great guy to spend time with, and I wish my trip to Paris, or his to NYC let us do more of that. A friend as well as competitor, my only regret is we live so far apart; otherwise we'd be tapping each other out all the time! Definitely reach out to him if you are in Paris.
This guy is a beast. fghter is strong, fast and skilled – he knows what he's doing. He can accommodate to almost all levels of skill and can be either a great coach or a forcible opponent, however you like him to be. Our match was safe and sane yet very competitive, and while he kicked my ass we had a lot of fun in the process. He's also got a killer body that shows how much workout he's getting :)
On another note, he was also an awesome host and wrestling on a real mat is so, SO much better than doing it on a small mattress.
Tasko and I had an awesome fight. He's a great grappling/submission fighting opponent. Smart, strong, competitive, sane on the mats but still comes at you like a high speed muscled freight train. A truly athletic fighter - he's got a kick-ass body, and most importantly he knows how to use his strength. Tasko's also explosively fast when he turn that switch on, and that combined with his gym built power means this guy got a superb self-taught fight game! Bring your best skills and strength cause he'll a real challenge.
Tasko's one of the best "instinctual" grapplers I've ever rolled with and off the mat, he's a real solid, good guy, fun to chill with, and knows all the rules of the match set up: He's reliable, gives clear communications, and shows up on time. The only downside to this recc is that he lives on the other side of the world from me so I can't slam into him on the mats every week! If Tasko is EVER in your city, or you go to South Korea, you should def request a match with this real good guy and genuine powerhouse of a submission fighter.
Milltaz is a strong guy with a great attitude and can take more punishment than most of the guys I've rolled with on here. He's in real good shape and definitely has a competitive edge to his "jobber" inclination. Even as I knew he was into getting worked over I also knew he could send some real challenging muscle to muscle action back my way. We had a great match and I look forward to more with this enthusiastic fighter. He's also a genuinely good guy. Our match was set up very "last minute"s and it worked out great for us both.
He is the real deal. Fghter is down with grappling, meeting new people, and, personally speaking, helping out if and when he can. He is the nicest thing I have to say about NYC (one of my least favorite places on earth)!
We've rolled around on several occasions and, like any experienced athlete, he knows how to vary the intensity to make it worthwhile for both parties: sometimes I was at the top of my game, other times I may have showed up distracted, stressed (NYC!), or hurting...but, sure enough, I almost always felt better after our long sessions💦
Fghter is accommodating - as a wrestler and a person - super respectful of one's boundaries/skill level, smart and engaging, AND has his own mats & fighting space. If you're ever passing through that glamorously abominable city, look him up in a New York minute.
Great skillz and a slammin real fighter's build!
I have wrestled Powers many times over the years and each time has been a great workout with a real sportsman and skilled grappler! He's got serious skills in freestyle and backs it up with real strength. He also has a real warriors body, super strong, powerful and ripped, and when he throws himself at you you you gotta stay focused and rise to the challenge. He's real good. When we rolled just freestyle he killed me. When we added submission grappling into the mix I had the upper hand, but each match was never over until it was over. Some have been epic. Like many hours of two fit guys fighting with all they got. We're also right around the same size in ht and wt so that has always added to the challenge for each of us. Off the mat, he's also a very smart, well read, guy with a great smile and a big heart.
If you live in, or get to, Berlin, are fit, have a real competitive edge, and want a great match, you'd gotta challenge this guy! And get ready for a "Powers surge"
fghter is recommended by Nysubmission
This guy is a beast! Super strong and skilled! Great guy on and off the mats. I'd wrestle him everyday I'd I could! He works with my spontaneous schedule and I'd recommend him to anyone who wants a legit match!
What can I not say about fghter! From the time we chatted on here to schedule our match to meeting him in person, he is what he says and does! Looks a lot better in person and very professional the entire time we had our match. Very determined to win no matter what, and most of all he doesn't give up easily at all! I highly recommend him if you are in the area he is in! Eagerly looking forward to our next match man!
5 stars aren't enough for a recc for Avalanche. If you you could give a dude 10 stars he would be that guy!
I can't say enough about my matches with this ripped and super strong fighter. In a word, he ROCKS. My marathon grappling sessions with him were some of the best matches I have had. End of sentence. He's learning BJJ fast, already has some solid mma experience, truly awesome instincts, a shredded fighting physique, and legs that will lock down on you tighter than a power vice.
He commits 150% to his fights but he is also sane, safe, and respects all limits.
On top of having excellent mat-sense, and a genuinely powerful ripped body, he also is a really chill, easygoing true gentleman and we had as great a time off the mats as we did trying, with every ounce of our straining muscles, to tap each other out again, and again, and again!
If I lived in Seattle I'd be challenging Avalanche all the time. If you're visiting Seattle I STRONGLY recommend you hit him up!
fghter is recommended by WrestlerandGeek
Super hot body, great personality and is very skilled. Most importantly he wrestles/grapples safely and never gives up. He is a great guy who is willing to take on any and all opponents. I highly recommend him to anyone in NYC or visiting NYC especially if you are looking for a real match with someone who has real skill. I am sure I will wrestle him again at some point and would do it every day if I was in the neighborhood. Don't pass this guy up!
WrestlerandGeek is recommended by fghter
I highly recommend fighting this guy!
Super experienced in collegiate, and can give a submission grappler a really hard time. His pics are accurate: He's got a rockin athletic body, and he's a serious, committed collegiate wrestler.
I've had many matches with him over the years and every one of them was xlent. He's aggressive, super strong for his size, and deeply skilled. He's also a genuinely nice guy off of the mats. I highly recommend him if yr in Albany, NY or if you can host where he's willing to travel to.
Bring your best game.... you'll need it!
We wreslted a while back. Between his super strength and BJJ skills I really had my hands full. He was more challenging for me than most, but man it was a fun and fierce battle. He's a great guy in great shape.
This grappler and submission fighter rocks. In great shape, skilled, and super strong. We had a great, intense, and epic match and I'm def lookin forward to more with this guy. There aren't alot of dudes under 180lbs who challenge me as much as Antaeus.
We had a blast. And....he's a great guy off and on the mats.
This fighter is athletic, strong, competitive, in great shape, and a real good guy. I had one match with xrunner and def lookin forward to the next one. He's a chill, laid back guy, but if you start to challenge him muscle to muscle u better have some skills to back yourself up cause he's a beast.
Had an awesome match.
fghter is recommended by JohnnyKing
This guy is an absolutely skilled wrestler! He's a fantastic grappling coach and isn't afraid to get hot and sweaty during the process. He has a good way of mixing a competitive nature with a hot scenario. Great build - very shredded and muscular. Can't wait to hit the mats with him again. Aside from a great match, contact this hot guy up if you need a trainer!
JohnnyKing is recommended by fghter
This guy is new to NYC and is going to become one of the city's Mat BEASTS. We had an awesome match. He's got a great attitude that's always ratcheting up the talk, and can back it up with some serious gunz and upper body strength. He can dish out and take body shots and fights with 150 percent. A great guy off the mats too. He's already formidable and with more training he's going to be an great lightweight submission grappler. He's in perfect athletic, ripped, lightweight shape with really great abs and arms. A lean, mean, fighting machine. I'm lookin forward to many more with this trash talkin powerhouse.
Great wrestler good technique very nice guy has a remarkable place I really enjoyed wrestling with hope to meet him again
slimwrestler12 is recommended by fghter
This fighter is awesome. I've fought Slimwrestler twice and looking really forward to our next battles. He's a lean, mean fighting machine on the mats and a great guy as well. Stronger than you might think given his stats, and he can take a lot before giving into a tap out. He's built sleek and athletic, and always brings 100 percent to match. A a rockin athletic and hot South Florida Grappler!
Fghter is a top opponent. Highly skilled at bjj - submission grappling, very strong, and a truly smokin body – amazimg muscle definition and great abs. When I work out, he is my inspiration body.
On the mats, it's full on competition, muscle vs muscle. It really is body chess with him as he is very skilled.
We have had many tough fought matches and I hold him in the highest regard. Excellent man. Excellent opponent.
nycfight is a great opponent on the mats. He's strong as hell, has a slamming body; lean athletic (the guy's got impressive abs) & thick muscled where a grappler should be (rockin chest, shoulders, and arms). His upperbody strength is really impressive. He can lock down on you with a tonna power and it takes a lot of fighting strategy and skill to break through his strength and stamina.
We've had multiple matches and they've all been great challenges and a ton of fun.
He's a great guy off of the mats as well. Sane, safe, and respects any and all limits.
Groundcombat is recommended by fghter
Ground Combat is a strong, skilled, and competitive fighter. He's in awesome genuine fighting shape and is also a great guy. We have a substantial weight difference, but the matches are always intense, fun, a kick-ass workout, and he knows his jiu jitsu moves.
He's a chill and awesome dude who brings it 100 percent to the mat. I always look forward to fighting him when we get on each other's coasts.

This guy is a solid gold addition to Meetfigher's Team France! Frenchjobber is really strong and skilled, with a super-hot lean, ripped, combat-ready body. He gave me a challenging and rocking match He's aggressive, fast, and already has a decent working knowledge of the foundations of submission fighting. It's a workout to break through his defenses, and he's SURPRISINGLY strong for his size. We tore the mats apart and had an awesome battle. On and Off the mats, he's a really great guy and I'm definitely looking forward to the rematch.
Fghter was my introduction to BJJ which I had snobbed before. I truly enjoyed and actually shifted my preferences from GP/BOXING to BJJ after the match. Fghter has patience as a perfect trainer, and most of all possesses a real fighter attitude, being aggressive, tough, strong, respectful. It is really a shame there is an ocean between us. The guy is in great great shape, perfect in size for my size, (definitively hot) and a very nice person off the mats – definitively worth my visit in NYC. Hope to be more skilled as next time I meet him, truly want to kick his ass :-)
Fight this guy!!! He's in GREAT shape, is super strong for his size, and can actually take an ab beating about as hard as anyone I've ever worked over. Genuinely good guy, who is super competitive on the mat, and a serious challenge. He's also super hot! One of the best matches I've had from MF, and looking forward to more the next time one of us crosses time zones.
lestat mza is recommended by fghter
One of the most technically skilled fighters I've ever rolled with from this site! A great match with a really nice guy who is seriously skilled in submission fighting and really strong. Lestat know's the moves and how to apply them from years of training in mma and jiu jitsu. One of the most challenging and competitive matches I've ever had. He's also super hot, with a lean ripped truly athletic bod. The perfect grappling/bjj package. If he hits you up for a match, do it! If you come to the mat with proper skills of your own you'll have a great match and learn a lot at the same time!
fghter is recommended by Evangelleon
Dude is an epic fighter and a great guy. Highly recommend him.
This guy is JUST one of the best grappler I ever met here... he is built as you see on pics, but more impressive and massive in real, and he deserves his blue belt in jiu jitsu, oh yes!....he is kind, smiling, sexy.. With a guy like him you cannot be injured, cause he knows perfectly his job : SUBMIT YOU WITH HONOR and great technics.. I really enjoyed my meeting with him, my fight with him, he got a perfect place to roll, and real mats for roll and roll... we grapple during 2 hours, and was SO great, hard, intense, muscle to muscle, with lot of sweat shared....he always push you at your extrem capacities, as his cardio is powerful... he is a master.. but next time I hope submit him... we will see!... you can trust him for all. We are too far from each other for being regular sparing partnairs, but Mark is just the ideal sparing partnair. You will learn a lot grappling with him.. and dont forget he is fucking strong him-self for his size,as I am too, so was just GREAT clash-male-meeting... SO THANK you for all dear Mark...
OK....If there's a high bar on this site. This guy is it. He is a great, skilled, competitive, truly athletic fighter with the kind of body that is built from both a commitment to the gym and to the mats. The guy's pictures are also accurate. He knows his submission fighting and his Jiu Jitsu technique and he is very very strong for his size. We first fought on a recent trip he made to NYC and it was one of the most satisfying and toughest matches I've ever had with a guy from this site, or any, for that matter. He's aggressive, smart, and plays jiu jitsu like other people play chess, which is exactly my game so our 2 hours of muscle to muscle battle sweat and skill was one of the best experiences I've had on the mats. OFF the mats it's just as good: the guy is a winner. Genuine, down to earth, with a great sense of humor and a real respect for other fighters. If you can bring a good body, good skills, strength, and stamina to the table, JUDOMARS is gonna be one of the fights of your life.
If you are ever in NYC, definitely hit this guy up. He's tough, strong, has a great body, and is a very skilled fighter. You will not be disappointed.
Have grappled fghter several times, and its always challenging and good fun. His body rocks, great attitude, and very skilled. Always agressive but sane match. Don't miss if you have the opportunity to wrestle.
This guy is the real deal! And a super good dude. I've fought him a bunch of times. He's strong, built like a ripped tank, , and really skilled. A GREAT fighter with an even greater attitude. If you get challenged by him you've got a fantastic match ahead of you.

This guy is the real deal. A real athletic guy, awesome shape, and a GREAT fighter who has alot of skill, size, and strength, and always takes the fight to a competitive level for his opponents. I'm a real strong fighter myself but he has size on me and I never felt like he was turning it into a squash match, we transitioned back and forth alot. Every match with him was fantastic. And, like the other recc's say, he's also a really great guy.

One of the best grapplers and great guys on this site. He's really in UFC athletic shape, knows how to move and how to finish a match. Tough as nails, serious about fighting, sane, and a tonna fun to lock up with. If this guy is in your area and you've got strength, stamina, and some real decent skills you should def check him out!
