Paige VanZant stepped back in the octagon after eight months literally dancing with the stars and delivered a brilliant kick to the face to knock out her opponent.
VanZant, one of the 'darlings' of UFC (yes I felt sick writing that), had been out of action for all of 2016, last fighting in a losing cause against Rose Namajunas and spent her time away from UFC finishing as a runner up in the US' version of Strictly Come Dancing, Dancing with the Stars.
The 22 year old strawweight was back in action on UFC Vancouver last night and delivered a stunning kick to the face for the KO win over Bec Rawlings, picking up performance of the night after her eight month absence:
