UFC star Paige VanZant earned a perfect score on the latest episode of Dancing With The Stars to ensure her safe passage through to the next round.

VanZant and her dance partner Mark Ballas had danced to ‘Proud Mary’ by Tina Turner, and the performance delighted the three judges, who all awarded her a perfect ’10’, for a total of 30/30.

She wasn’t the only celebrity to hit that high-water mark on the night though as Ginger Zee also notched up full marks for her dance.

Thanks to winning the night, PVZ was able to escape the elimination round, which was was a relief after having been in the bottom three last week.

That was just as well, as two celebrities got the boot last night, with actress Kim Fields and the Denver Bronco’s Von Miller both being eliminated.

So, VanZant rolls on to the eight episode of the show, and with only three episodes remaining she’s still believed to be one of the favorites to win.

It’ll be interesting to see what happens next when VanZant’s run on DTWS does finally come to an end. Hopefully the recently turned 22 year-old’s stint under the bright lights won’t have distracted her too much from her UFC Career as she’s coming off a loss to Rose Namajunas back in December.
