The popular video of UFC analyst and commentator Laura Sanko praising Shavkat Rakhmonov has been addressed. Sanko and the other commentators on the UFC Weigh-In Show in 2022 talked about Khamzat Chimaev and Shavkat Rakhmonov, two undefeated UFC welterweights.
Despite praising Shavkat Rakhmonov and Khamzat Chimaev for their abilities and unblemished MMA histories, Laura Sanko seemed to go all out for Rakhmonov. Afterwards, a video of her praising "Nomad" went viral. She said that she would definitely get frightened but still wants to interview him, as seen in the video.
"Shavkat Rakhmonov, that man gives me chills. I've never interviewed him. I've never spoken to him, but I feel like I would get nervous, but I want to [interview him/speak to him]. He is 16 and 0. He has a 100 percent finish rate,” Sanko had noted (h/t Sportskeeda).
The next welterweight was questioned on the widely shared footage of Sanko praising him. Rakhmonov provided a remark through a translator that had the reporters in fits of laughter, and he also laughed along with them.
"Yes, of course, I saw that video. You know, what can I say? As a man, you always like when woman adores you. So, what else can I say? That's it,” he said.
And now, Laura Sanko has given another response claiming that the Internet made the situation weird.
“The Internet made this weird,” Sanko noted in a latest video poster by UFC. You can see the video clip below.
