- Laura Sanko replied to a random fan who alleged she was being provocative while calling UFC fights
- The ex-Invicta fighter believes she became a UFC commentator because of hard work and nothing else
UFC commentator Laura Sanko didn’t let a random fan kill her vibe while some of her peers commend her for a job well done in commentating.
Laura put a fan in his Place
Fresh off calling UFC Vegas 76 fights, Sanko received some compliments from guys like Jon Anik and Luke Thomas. The former Invicta fighter gladly acknowledged it when out of nowhere, a fan barged in and accused her of making “sex noises” for the better part of her commentating job.
“I would be totally fine with her commentary were it not for the fact that she continues to make sex noises every 30 seconds,every time a fighter lands something she screams “ahhhh” “ooooooh” “uuuuuuuh” and it is starting to look deliberate for male viewers,just that kind of girl,” the fan wrote.
You sound like the type of guy who masturbates to women’s tennis.

It didn’t take long before Sanko hit back with an even wittier and feistier response.
“You sound like the type of guy who masturbates to women’s tennis,” she replied.
Everything is earned in the UFC
Needless to say, everyone is entitled to his or her opinion. However, Sanko remains unfazed as she truly believes she earned a spot on the UFC’s commentary table through sheer hard work.
It can be recalled that ahead of her UFC commentary debut at UFC Vegas 68, Sanko said:
“I’m grateful that the UFC had the belief in me to give me this opportunity in an elevated role. I’m also simultaneously glad that they made me earn it… Everything here [in the UFC] is earned. Nothing is given, regardless of gender.”
Sanko is only the second female commentator in UFC history. The first was Kathy Long, who called the fights of UFC 1 back in 1993.
