Video: FOX Sports Live invites Paige VanZant to join the show, then makes her dance the 'Cabbage Patch'

Paige VanZant used to be a dancer. Then again, Tommy DeVito used to shine shoes.

Despite the fact that VanZant (5-1) is enjoying a successful mixed martial arts (MMA) career, and is now 2-0 under the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) banner, thanks to dominating wins over Kailin Curran and Felice Herrig, the producers at FOX Sports Live are more interested in watching her shake that thang.


They are touting this as an "exclusive" but sorry, we've already seen it.

All kidding aside, the young upstart is already in the title conversation, thanks in part to the anemic strawweight division, but mostly because she's looked unstoppable since making her debut last November. One or two wins over a top five fighter (VanZant is currently ranked No. 7) and "12 Gauge" could shoot her way into a championship contest.

And be on the lookout for the FOX Sports cameras to capture her victory dance.
