On Saturday, Laura Sanko will make her color commentator debut at UFC Vegas 68.

She will be the second female color commentator in UFC history – the first in the company’s modern era – to call an official event. The promotion broke the news on Monday.

“Taking the next step to join the UFC commentary team has been a goal of mine since I began my broadcast career,” Sanko said in the press release.

“It is an honor to walk in the footprint of Kathy Long 30 years after her appearance on UFC 1. I consider it a true privilege to be part of the team that is a voice to our incredible fans, communicating the fighting art of each man and woman who steps inside the UFC Octagon.”
