Laura Sanko is considered one of the most prominent members of the broadcast booth in the UFC today. However, not many know that she is an ex-fighter. Ever since the UFC signed her, the Chicago-born has gained a tremendous following on her social media, boasting a good 376k followers just on Instagram alone.
Earlier this year, the 40-year-old made it to headlines by becoming the first-ever woman to commentate a UFC fight in the promotion’s history of 30 years. Unfortunately, this isn’t the only piece of news surrounding her that has been floating around in the media. The American, on multiple occasions, has appeared to be “crushing” over the undefeated prospect Shavkat Rakhmonov.

Shavkat is a Kazakh fighter and stands at no. 6 in the welterweight division. However, this isn’t where the problem lies. Laura has been married for almost 12 years to entrepreneur Nathan Sanko. Because of this, fans began questioning her comments and loyalty to her husband Nathan Sanko.
Laura met Nathan somewhere in the year of 2006 and the two tied the knot just six years into dating. The couple has a son together, named Burke. They never shy away from posting about each other every chance they get. But, as much authentic as Laura has been in her sharing a happy life with Nathan, she has been equally upfront about her “thirsting” over the 17-0 fighter as well.

Nathan joined Leggera Technologies, LLC, in 2013, an engineering company that focuses on structural automotive parts. The Missouri resident has remained at the helm of his current job for the past decade. While Nathan has chosen not to comment on this hoopla, one can only imagine how he feels about the whole ordeal.

Of course, the fight fans weren’t going to leave any stone unturned in order to voice their opinion on this ongoing drama. A majority of fans are lashing out at the 40-year-old for her questionable behavior despite being happily married. It is worth noting that the media made Shavkat aware of this situation, to which he responded, “As a man you always like when a woman adores you” (Translation).
People really believe she wouldn’t step out on her husband lol
