Paige VanZant Advances to DWTS Finals

Watch the impressive routine that earned the UFC fighter a spot in the season finale.

On Dancing With the Stars last night, UFC strawweight fighter Paige VanZant and her partner Mark Ballas danced their way to the finals. The pair performed a Samba as a trio with professional dancer, Alan Bernsten. The jungle-themed dance was deemed a showstopper by judges and the pair scored a 30 out of 30. Later, the pair performed a sultry Argentine tango for their solo routine. The sexy performance earned a score of 29 out of 30 from the judges, who were impressed with VanZant’s display of versatility as a dancer. Two couples were eliminated on last night’s episode, resulting in just three teams left to compete in the season finale next week.

The Dancing With the Stars finale, featuring VanZant, Ballas and two other couples, airs on Monday at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. Watch the video of her tango here.
