The Russian MMA fighter, who called himself an Unvaccinated Assassin, is charged with murder because he stabbed a doctor to death in a row because of the Covid vaccine.
Akmal Khozhiev, 27, has been arrested in Guam on suspicion of suffocating and stabbing Dr. Miran Ribati at the bone of an animal left behind after a meal.
According to local data, Khozhiev’s mother and sister had tried to stop the attack.
The moment an MMA fighter was arrested by police was captured on camera.
The 44-year-old victim, a radiologist, had lived in Guam for more than a decade.
Born in Uzbekistan, Khozhiev is reportedly married and has a baby boy.
He was a well-known anti-vaxxer and even led a social media campaign against vaccines claiming “the vaccine doesn’t work” and urging people to “disguise themselves”.
He considered the doctor a client and the couple had eaten dinner, reports say.
They argued about the Covid-19 vaccinations, and the dispute ended when the fighter – known as the AK – told Dr. Ribat, “I don’t trust you anymore.”
Local reports in Guam say the radiologist was found lying in his own blood.
When the police arrived, the witness told the police, “Lord, it’s me, it’s me, I killed him.”
Khozhiev had studied at the St. Petersburg State Civil Aviation University and later worked at the city’s Pulkovo Airport.
He had worked as a coach at the gym before being fired for “threatening clients.”
He has been charged by the Guam authorities with aggravated murder and assault, use of a deadly weapon, strangulation, arrest, assault and domestic violence.
Doctors said Dr. Ribati would be sorely missed.
“His abilities were undeniable and impeccable,” the hospital’s statement said.
OCT fighter JJ Ambrose said Khozhiev “was such a great person – until he wasn’t”.
