Nashville MMA featherweight Luke Sanders (4-0) improved his undefeated record to 4-0 this past Friday night with a first round TKO stoppage of Reaction MMA’s Zach Sanders (4-2) on the HDNet televised main card of “XFC 18: Music City Mayhem” in Nashville, Tenn.
ProMMAnow.com (www.prommanow.com) reporter Gary Thomas caught up with Luke Sanders after the bout to talk about the win. Luke explained his game plan was to out-work and frustrate his opponent and said that tends to work for him. He also revealed he suffered a cut over his eye in training that required stitches just days before the fight:
“If you can fight, you fight. I had five stitches, it was all the way to the bone. That was eight days ago. I’m gonna put the video up tonight to show everybody I’m a warrior and that’s what I do, I get in there and fight.”
As far as what’s next, Luke said, “Just keep getting better. I’ve got a ways to improve. … Just get better and improving, try to get another win under my belt and stay active and just keep getting better.” A Strikeforce and XFC veteran with four pro fights under his belt, four victories and four first round stoppages, Luke Sanders is a fighter to keep your eye on.
