Luke sanders

Owner

Luke Sanders is a lifelong Nashville native with a penchant for fighting.  He started his athletic endeavors as BMX rider.  But this fighter wasn’t meant to balance on two wheels. Luke entered his first official bout as a 17-year-old. The gritty Montgomery High Schooler with a big smile lied about his age so he could compete against adults. He won.  

The victory was the first on what would be a long road to success. Luke worked odd jobs – as a plumber, as a bouncer, as a top AT&T regional salesman – while pursuing his passion. His hard work eventually paid off (and if you know Luke, you know he is the hardest worker around). Luke went 11-0 traveling the United States fighting in televised MMA bouts. 

In 2016, he signed on with the world’s largest and most elite fighting organization: The UFC. Luke still fights today (he’s 2-3 in the UFC and constantly training for his next fight). Luke prides himself in staying connected to his hometown, which he gives much credit to for his current success. He is focused on creating a community where people can grow and accomplish their goals.

When Luke isn’t in the ring or training, you can find him in East Nashville hanging out with his daughter, Riley, and his pup, Bux.
