You can import a collada file in a link ( Look at the mesh tag and uri tag.

If all your robot is the collada, you can probably open it in Blender and export each part of the robot in a collada file that you will use in a sdf link.

Update :

Example of a building that I have :

There is my model :

<?xml version='1.0'?>
<sdf version='1.5'>
  <model name='building_curve'>
    <link name="curve1">
      <visual name="visual">
        <collision name="collision">

There is my world file :

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<sdf version="1.4">
  <world name="default">
      <pose>15.64 -12.89759 0 0 0 0</pose>
