Laura Sanko has been integral to UFC broadcasts in recent years as a reporter, host, analyst, and last year becoming the first woman in the Zuffa era to serve as a color commentator when she did so on Dana White’s Contender Series.

And yet, even though Sanko has proven her worth in each of those roles, she hears from people all the time on social media who question her credentials.

“There is a whole contingent of people out there that think I got this job in some untoward and scandalous way,” Sanko said Tuesday during an appearance on Blockasset’s “BLOCK Party”. “I can assure you that’s not how it happened.”

Sanko, 39, used to be a fighter, with five amateur bouts on her resume from 2010 to 2012 and a lone professional fight she won on Jan. 5, 2013, at Invicta FC 4. She got her start in broadcasting with Invicta shortly after and worked her way up from there.
