Paige VanZant is getting very close to becoming the first professional fighter to win Dancing With The Stars!

This week, the 22-year-old UFC athlete and her partner Mark Ballas performed an ice queen-inspired Viennese waltz, and scored a near perfect 28 out of 30.

VanZant followed that impressive performance up with a fourway dance alongside Ballas, dancer Sharna Burgess, and pro football player Antonio Brown.

This routine earned VanZant's team an impressive 29 out of 30, sending her to the semifinals of the season.

VanZant is one of the top picks to win the entire Dancing With The Stars competition, but she hasn't forgotten about her career as an MMA fighter. She's planning a return to the UFC Octagon sometime in ugust.
