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. ( 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.
