Paige VanZant has the toughest fight of her career on her hands when she faces former champ Michelle Waterson at UFC on FOX 22, but you wouldn't be able to tell by the way she's handling the pressure. At only 22-years-old, PVZ has tasted the national broadcast spotlight on Dancing with the Stars. She's also performed flying switch kicks to knock out her opponents. Paige has even been torn in half by Criss Angel...

Knowing this, she naturally, looks completely comfortable dancing the Macarena with some people that may or may not be wanting to do so with her at the UFC on FOX 22 open workouts.

Through her bloody wars and displays of grit, has clearly made it known that she's not just a pretty face. Fans pushed back hard when she was pushed to the moon when she first entered the UFC, but can you blame them? She's got that star potential. She's here to have fun. And if she beats Michelle Waterson, is she not right there in the mix for a title shot?

But then there's a monster waiting for her in ... Maybe it's best that VanZant enjoys herself now. She deserves it, win or lose this weekend.
