Steven Koslow is an American mixed martial artist who competes in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Born on June 30th, 1982 in Brooklyn, New York, he was always drawn to sports, and took up wrestling while attending high school. Growing up in a tough urban neighbourhood, Steven often found himself getting into fights as a teenager. This would eventually lead him to his career.
Koslow’s fighting career began at age 18 when he joined the United States Marine Corps and trained for two years during active duty service. He quickly developed into a skilled fighter with impressive striking and ground-fighting abilities; he even earned several accolades from fellow Marines for his combat skills. After being honorably discharged from the military, Steven decided to pursue MMA professionally and began training at Long Island’s Renzo Gracie Academy under head instructor John Danaher.
In 2002 Koslow had racked up an impressive 10-0 record as an amateur before making his professional debut against future UFC veteran Efrain Escudero at CFFC 3: Unleashed in May of 2003; winning by TKO after just twenty-nine seconds of round one. His quick finish caught the attention of promoters across North America and soon enough Steven was signed by renowned Canadian promotion TKO Major League MMA (TKO). He would go on to win four consecutive bouts within their organization leading up to April of 2007 when he made his UFC debut against Sam Stout at UFC Fight Night 13: Florian vs Lauzon II – where he lost via submission due to strikes after 2 minutes 58 seconds into round one; putting a temporary stop to what had been an excellent unbeaten streak thus far as a pro fighter..
Despite this first setback however, Steven continued training diligently with coach Danaher on improving various aspects of his game such as submission defence , takedown defence , conditioning etc., allowing him more success later down the road; most notably when returning to compete with TKO once again – winning over three bouts consecutively before finally departing from that organisation after they folded operations forever in 2010 . His next move came shortly thereafter when it was announced that he’d be participating alongside other veterans such as Mac Danzig , Jon Fitch & Ben Saunders amongst others – representing Team USA at The Ultimate Fighter 12 Finale : Team GSP Vs Team Koscheck ; facing off against Canada’s Jesse Bongfeldt whom we defeated via unanimous decision .
Since then , Steven has gone 5 wins out of 8 fights competed including victories over opponents such as Sean Pierson & Ramiro Hernandez respectively .. He currently boasts an impressive overall professional record standing firmly 21 wins out 26 total matches contested . Despite all this success however , not much has been heard about him recently so let’s hope that we see more of this charismatic warrior stepping back onto center stage sometime soon !
