                    <p>Paige VanZant is three wins into the start of her UFC career and already one of the division&#39;s brightest stars. Speaking to reporters back stage at UFC 192, she credited her ability to be poised in the Octagon and her athleticism to her dance background:</p>

"I would have to give a lot of thanks to my dance teachers," she told reporters backstage in Houston at UFC 192.

"[My dance teachers] taught me how to compose myself. They taught me how to be in a professional setting. And, definitely my parents."

Life as a dancer required poise and no small amount of athleticism for VanZant, both of which come in handy as a MMA fighter. "They definitely make you have a sense of professionalism," she continued.

"I don't think people really understand how much of an athlete you have to be to do dance. I was in it competitively and did a little bit of professional dance, so I'd have to give them thanks."
