UFC’s Paige VanZant successful in return with a KO post-‘Dancing with the Stars’

Published

on

As FOX analysts and UFC champion, Daniel Cormier stated prior to the main card starting, facing Paige VanZant is the second best fight a strawweight can ask for.

It’s been almost a year since VanZant has stepped inside the octagon. In her previous appearance in MMA competition, the 22-year-old was seen fighting in the main event of UFC’s Fight Night: Namajunas vs. VanZant card in Las Vegas back in December. Many questioned the placement of labeling her as the main attraction so early into her career. And in the last round of the 5-round fight, many got their questions answered.

Though she lost, VanZant’s heart was displayed inside the cage where she left with bloody scratches and bruises but left with a bigger case of grit.

After failing to keep her undefeated UFC streak alive, VanZant went into a bit of an emotional moment, expressing her thoughts at the post-fight press conference: “I got outclassed, so [I’ll] get back with my team, and gameplan, and work on my technique. I’m sad.”

After three months, it was announced in March she had been cast to take part in the newest edition of Dancing with the Stars. The active fighter joined the likes of MMA legends Chuck Liddell and Randy Couture who have joined the dancing tournament in previous seasons.

Though the Sacramento, Team Alpha Male prospect failed to win the Dancing with the Stars competition, (coming to a respectable, second place with her partner,) VanZant got the opportunity to display her versatility in front of millions of homes thanks to the popular DTWS being shown nationwide.

Fast forward 10 weeks and the young star immediately signed up for a fight following the finish of the DWTS finale. This time, Vanzant’s fight was rightfully placed on the main card on the ‘big’ Fox channel, where she had her successful return in the city of Vancouver.

After losing the first round on the cards, just seconds into the second round, VanZant threw a sensational left jumping switch kick that knocked out her opponent Bec Rawlings, and VanZant returned to the winning column with a thrilling KO finish.
