Former WWE Superstar Vladimir Kozlov made his debut back in 2008 and had a solid run as a heel, where he even scored a pinfall victory over The Undertaker. He eventually teamed up with Santino Marella and won the WWE Tag Team Championship before being released by the company back in 2011.
Kozlov would hang up his wrestling boots in 2012 and since then has focused on becoming an actor and stuntman. He also underwent an incredible physical transformation in the process.
Now it seems the Moscow Mauler has an interest in facing a Brock Lesnar in an MMA fight. While speaking to Ringsiders Wrestling, Vladimir Kozlov talked about facing Brock Lesnar in an MMA fight. Kozlov stated that if the fight does happen, then he will have to give his entire focus into it. Kozlov added that he likes challenges as well.
“I’m telling you this one, when I was in New York, I had interview for FOX Sports and it was a question if I had an opportunity [to] fight Brock Lesnar,” said Kozlov. “If I will do it [or] if I’m not. It was a rumor for a long time if I can fight against Brock Lesnar. It can be very interesting. It was [a] conversation during my wrestling career and since I stopped to wrestle, MMA style.
But, if we have an opportunity in the future like that, you have to concentrate on [this] specific fight because he’s a big guy and he’s very powerful and he is in good shape too,” added Kozlov. “So you have to give up all your production, you have to give up all your acting career, you need to just concentrate. But it can be interesting, I like challenges
Brock Lesnar has not been seen inside the squared circle since WrestleMania 36 and hasn’t competed in an MMA fight since 2016 as well. We wonder if Lesnar and Kozlov will eventually face off against each other in the Octagon.
