Invicta FC atomweight “Fancy” Laura Sanko is pregnant with her first child and has withdrawn from her planned fight at Invicta Fighting Championships 6 on July 13th in Kansas City, Missouri. In Sanko’s place, Cassie “The Hulk” Robb now faces Livia “T-Rex” von Plettenberg on the preliminary card.
While Sanko will no longer be competing at Invicta FC 6, she may still be a part of the event. On April 5th, Sanko served as a cageside interviewer at Invicta FC 5 and she received rave reviews from observers who tuned in to the event’s live Internet Pay-Per-View stream.
As WMMA gets bigger, pregnancy might become a bigger pain in the ass than knee injuries. They take longer to get through, even before you take into account any maternity leave that comes after.
