Why are all of your assumptions so negative?
Arkhagha is of Circassian descent and is wearing a traditional Circassian hat.
After the genocide committed against Circassians by the Russians many migrated to Syria and Jordan.
So it isn't actually a wig but a hat.

Why my assumptions are so negative?
Good question, I'll explain. I consider salafism/wahhabism and any religious branch that treats women as second class citizens and believe that it's reasonable to chop off heads of people that are leaving their religion is an appropriate way. This is the short version, I have the strong feeling that most of the Dagestani and Chechens belong to that category. As Russia is cracking down on salafism for good reason in these areas they might be openly of a different branch but my gut feeling isn't much better.
I consider people that share those ideas to be the enemy of the civilized world and an enemy of freedom, hence my negative assumptions.
As someone who follows Syrian politics daily I am well aware of the risk that these groups can have on society. Mass murder of all minorities, rape and enslaving.
Guy wears a traditional hat and you assume he is an extremist?
For ethnic groups living away from their homeland like the Circasian people in Jordan, wearing traditional clothes is often common during weddings and other social events to try and preserve traditional culture.
Even in Chechnya traditional clothes are worn during traditional events...such as traditional dances
Such dances would be forbidden under hardline Wahabi beliefs, which considers dancing a sin.
To be honest MMA is even a sin according to hardline Salafist
Wearing certain traditional clothes like a cowboy hat or a tarbouch is rather common in combat sports
