The first major disappointment in the life of MMA Analyst Laura (Marcusse) Sanko was her early divorce that occurred not long after college. To her, it then felt like a major failure, for someone who grew up in a religious family and had been successful in most other things.
However, it was the very frustration and stress, that later served as her motivation. Laura rejoined a gym, worked out regularly, and on a certain day, she was spotted by a well-known Kansas City MMA fighter, Rob Kimmons. She asked him if he could help her enter MMA training. Then, after on-and-off MMA training, and much commitment later she moved back to Kansas City, after a short stay in New York, in mid-2009. And she found herself training under coaches Jason Krause, Brian Davidson, Austen Ford, and Tim Elliot, who encouraged her to go beyond training take on amateur fights. By the time she completed five amateur fights, she was ready to be a professional fighter.
So, if you may like to know her further, there is indeed much more to her, apart from her early years’ struggles.
