Muslim Patsarigov Biography

Muslim Patsarigov was born on August 9, 1987 in Chechnya. It was there that “Messi” started wrestling – age 4, earning a spot in the Chechen national junior squad by the time he was 10 years old.

Patsarigov won every tournament in his home state’s wrestling circuit, conquering also a bronze medal at the Chechnya nationals in his early teens. Although his career looked destined for greater things, that success was abruptly stopped after his 13th birthday (2000) with the start of the Second Chechen War. A time when Patsarigov and his family were forced to flee their war torn country, finding shelter in Norway.

Muslim continued to wrestle among friends, but as competitive wrestling was non-existent in Norway, Patsarigov was forced to re-think his sporting aspirations. During his late teens Patsarigov became a fan of Rickson Gracie, deciding then to look for a jiu jitsu academy. He met Felipe Mota in 2009 and immediately started to train under him.

Training at Oxy Gym with some of the best grapplers in the continent, Patsarigov earned the respect of the grappling community by winning countless medals in Scandinavia. Muslim became known for his strong pressure passing and for having never been taken down in competition, a remarkable deed considering he also never pulled guard.

After an impressive brown belt campaign, where Patsarigov earned medals in some of our sport’s most prestigious events, on August 2016 Muslim was promoted to black belt by his long-time instructor Felipe Mota.
