...I can see where they got that name from... isn't he some World Champion in kick boxing or... sambo was it? I've heard the name round there...
Wait, it says he won the USA Open Heavyweight Sambo Championship and the USKBA International Heavyweight Grappling Championship. There's where I heard it... plus it says he's a wrestler now lol
- I don't know. Vladimir is a very common Russian name, and Koslov is probably a common Russian surname as well. Bungie just combined those two names and ended up with Vladimir Koslov, who coincidentally is also a present-day wrestler. ;) --UNSC Trooper File:unsctrooper_small.jpg|14px]] TalkMy Work 08:28, 6 February 2009 (UTC)
