From cheerleading to MMA, and now performing on this season of Dancing With the Stars, it’s fair to say that the UFC star Paige VanZant can move in more ways than one.

VanZant had entered the season dancing with Mark Ballas (in above photo), who has since been sidelined due to a back injury sustained during rehearsals the day before Monday’s Week 2 performance. Quick to fill in was Alan Bersten (below), a member of the Dancing With the Stars dance troupe. The duo made a stellar performance during Monday’s Latin night, scoring 24 points out of 30 from three judges. VanZant is the favorite to win based on her dance and cheerleader background.

After the most recent performance, the strawweight VanZant told Erin Andrews that she wanted to show that there’s a different side to her than just the fighter.
