UFC fighter Paige VanZant continues to dazzle in her run on Dancing With The Stars. Proving she can put her athletic ability to work both inside and out of the Octagon, VanZant put on a stellar rumba performance with her partner this week, Sasha Farber.

Give it a look below:

VanZant and her partner scored 8-8-7 for a total of 31 out of 40. After the performance, guest judge Maksim Chmerkovskiy gave her some encouraging words.

"You are more than capable of winning the show, in my mind," he said.

That's no surprise given that before she was a UFC fighter, VanZant trained in acting and dance, before finding a love of martial arts as a teenager.
