Former MMA fighter turned UFC host Laura Sanko is celebrating a major martial arts milestone on Instagram.
Sanko, who retired from fighting to become a host/announcer, has spoken out in the past about her decision to transition from fighting to becoming a full-time TV host for the UFC.

“I didn’t come into this role because I had a broadcasting background, I had a fight background, which I think probably tells you a lot about my mindset and my drive, so that translates over to what I’m doing now,”
“I think we all want to leave some sort of legacy behind us and so for me, not continuing my fighting career, I had a very short fighting career, this is my way of being able to leave my little fingerprint on the sport forever,” she said. “It means the world to me to be able to do that because records can be broken but there’s only one first.”
Sanko apparently still trains while she’s not on set because on Friday she shared a workout outfit picture on Instagram revealing that she’s gotten her brown belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
