Paige VanZant (pictured) may not have won Dancing With The Stars, but she won on Saturday night at UFC on FOX 21.
VanZant unleashed a highlight reel Karate Kid-esque kick in the second round that would have made Daniel LaRusso envious. The strike sent Bec Rawlings to the canvas and VanZant pounced.
After several punches to the dome on the ground, the assault was brought to an end. The win probably should have been ruled a TKO more than a KO, but that’s just splitting blonde hairs.
The official stoppage came at 0:17 in the middle period.
Although there has been chatter VanZant might ditch MMA for Hollywood, the 22-year-old said she’s focused on the cage.
UFC on FOX 21 took place inside Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
