From Russia with love and a fist?
Former World Wrestling Entertainment star Vladimir Kozlov, real name Oleg Prudius is looking to get into mixed martial arts.
The former wrestling star left the WWE promotion after being released in August of this year. His high point was winning the WWE tag team championship once.
Don't be fooled that this is some money venture because Prudius is a decorated fighter. In 2005, Prudius won the USA open heavyweight sambo championship.as well as a USKBA international grappling heavyweight champion. At 6'4 and 250+ pounds the man is bound to bring power but will he be able to use his stellar sambo background to keep up in the fastest growing sport?
