Abdurakhman Bilarov Biography
Abdurakhman Bilarov was born on May 25, 1990 in Makhachkala – the capital city of the Republic of Dagestan, Russia.
One of Dagestan’s most popular sports is freestyle wrestling, a sport Abdurakhman practiced and competed in throughout his childhood, teenage and adulthood years. While doing so, Bilarov defended the colors of Ali Alyev’s team, a well respected squad in the region.
At the age of 19 (2009) Abdurakhman was introduced to jiu jitsu by a few friends who had started its practice. Bilarov became increasingly interested in BJJ as his training progressed, and gradually shifted his focus from wrestling to submission grappling.
His training took a more definitive shift towards jiu jitsu once Bilarov started training with Team Nogueira affiliate Rafael Haubert, who – after three consecutive gold medals at the Abu Dhabi World Pro promoted Abdurakhman Bilarov to black belt (2015).
