Watch: Paige VanZant twerks before she hits mitts, likely moves up in UFC media rankings

The training methods of Flyweight Paige VanZant appear to be vaguely similar to the routine of Strawweight Paige VanZant. Dateline, somewhere in the Pacific Northwest where the new 125-pound PVZ is hitting the mitts but not before she dances a little jig; VanZant is permanently in a state of dance.

Torn between the worlds of dance and martial arts, Paige VanZant is the living the plot 1990s TV movie that was left on the cutting room floor. Watch PVZ twerk with her body but punch with her heart? Or watch PVZ twerk with her heart and punch with her body?
