According to local reports, Khozhiev’s mother and sister had tried to stop the attack.
The moment the MMA fighter was arrested by police was caught on camera.
The 44-year-old victim, a radiologist, had lived in Guam for over a decade.
Khozhiev, who was born in Uzbekistan, is reportedly married with a baby son.
He was a known anti-vaxxer and even ran a social media campaign against vaccines claiming “vaccine is not working” urging people to “mask off”.
He retained the doctor as a client and the pair had been having dinner, reports claim.

They argued over Covid-19 vaccinations, and a row ended with the fighter – known as AK – telling Dr Ribati: “I don’t trust you anymore.”
Local reports in Guam say that the radiologist was found lying in a pool of his own blood.
When police arrived, a witness said he told an officer: “Sir, it’s me, it’s me, I killed him.”
Khozhiev had studied at St Petersburg State University of Civil Aviation, and subsequently held down a job at the city’s Pulkovo airport.
He had worked as a trainer at a gym before being fired for “threatening customers”.
The authorities in Guam have charged him with aggravated murder and assault, use of a deadly weapon, strangulation, felonious restraint, assault and family violence.
Medical colleagues said Dr Ribati “will be sorely missed”.
“His talents were undeniable and impeccable,” said a hospital statement.
MMA fighter JJ Ambrose said that Khozhiev “was such a great person – until he wasn’t”.
