    Ngl is it a major issue whatever flag he fights under? Saw the first half of the thread title and briefly freaked out thinking he wasn't fighting Riddell, man that would have sucked

    I am always surprised to see names like Rafael Fiziev or Artur Beterbiev being originally Muslim.
    These names must be in the Old Testament AND therefore in the Quran AND therefore Muslim as well, but I totally associate Rafael / Artur as Christian names, lol.....The more you know....

    He didn't go into detail in this video, just said thousands of Kirghiz harassed him and his family online, also the Mufti of Kirghizstan criticized them. Because of that Rafael won't represent Kirghiztan anymore.

    I wonder if it has anything to do with Rafael maybe being a Shia Muslim (since he's Azerbaijani and Kirghizstan is Sunni), but im not sure.

    Artur is not a biblical name. Rafael is and would be written as Rafail in arabic according to wiki. Many names are actually common between muslim and christians just written differently, like Joseph/Yusuf for example.

    Rafa always had comments on were you could reply to his storys. He was in Iraq couple of weeks ago and posted some stuff so i think maybe you're right.

    Now everything is turned off, only his friends can reply

    There's no Artur in Old Testament, Quaran or anything like that, it's either Celtic or Roman name.

    So all he needs to do is move to America. We welcome everyone regardless of religion regardless what the progs proclaim. He can be champ here.

    Right, last month there was a commemoration of Imam Hussein in Karbala, Iraq. Rafael probably went there.

    Cool then maybe move his family here. If religion in his homeland is an issue then bring them here.

    Yes it is, which is why i believe Rafael is Shia Muslim.
