UFC’s Laura Sanko Criticized By Former MMA Champion For Her Commentary: “Sucks So Bad”

Laura Sanko returned to the commentary table for the UFC Vegas 89 card.
Sanko shared her expertise through the 13-fight card – however, not everyone thought that she did a good job.

Former WEC lightweight champion Jamie Varner went on the attack, calling out Sanko and her “annoying” commentary via social media posts:

Leave the commentary to the people that have actually fought.
A female UFC fighter should have that job, she is just annoying and it’s obvious she is trying so hard and doesn’t know what she is talking about.

She sucks so bad at commentating!

She’s a try-hard that speaks about things she knows nothing about.
Talking about blast doubles and how tiring it could be in the first round of the fight, like what do you know about any of those things?

Stay in your lane.

Laura Sanko didn’t it stay at that, however.

She reminded Varner that she is a former MMA fighter and a BJJ brown belt:

It’s ok that you don’t like my commentary, but respectfully, I’ve been a part of this game and training since 2006.

I’m a brown belt in Jiu-Jitsu and while I can’t compare my career to yours I have in fact fought.
And if UFC had a 105 division I would have fought a lot longer.

You and I actually fought on the same card in 2011 for Titan FC.
We warmed up next to each other in the basement of the Memorial Hall building in KCK.

My best friend braided your hair because you couldn’t find anyone to do it.
I remember thinking how cool it was at the time to be on a card with you.

I had followed your career in the WEC and was a little star-struck to be honest.
