Multiple people with knowledge of the promotion’s plans, who requested anonymity because the information had not been officially announced, confirmed to MMA Fighting that Sanko will provide color commentary for Saturday’s event, which takes place at Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney. MMA Junkie was first to report the news.
Megan Olivi also is set for the broadcast team as a roving reporter, while Din Thomas provides in-fight commentary at different points throughout the event.
Sanko has called several UFC Fight Night events for the promotion after making her UFC debut in January. She also has served as a regular color commentator for the past few seasons of Dana White’s Contender Series, but with longtime commentator Joe Rogan not on the call due to UFC 293 being an international pay-per-view event, she gets the much-deserved opportunity.
