Former MMA fighter turned UFC host Laura Sanko is enjoying the NFL draft in Kansas City.
Sanko, who retired from fighting after one fight to become a full-time host/announcer, has spoken in the past about her decision to transition from being a professional fighter to standing behind the mic at UFC events.

“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 has the weekend off because she’s in Kansas City for the NFL draft.
On Thursday night, Sanko posted her outfit for the NFL draft parties and it went instantly viral on social media.
