You may know Laura from her work as a reporter for UFC on ESPN and Dana White’s Contender Series. She is one of the most knowledgeable and personable professionals discussing the UFC today, and her passion for the sport is apparent in each of her interviews.
Laura’s journey to MMA began at the age of 5 after watching Karate Kid for the first time. She was obsessed with the movie, and her father brought her a gi from Korea, which she would wear all the time to practice her ninja skills. It wasn’t until high school that she started training in martial arts, but her love and knowledge for the sport only increased from there.
When Laura is not busy on the road as one of MMA’s most watched reporters, she is spending time in her hometown of Kansas City raising her son, Burke, with her husband, Nathan. In her free time she enjoys riding four-wheelers, working out at the gym, and training at Glory MMA and Fitness with fellow DirectHemp.com family member, James Krause.
