Following her eight-month layoff from the sport of mixed martial arts (MMA), No. 10-ranked UFC strawweight Paige VanZant returned to the Octagon to take on Australia’s Bec Rawlings.

The opening round saw VanZant trying to maintain distance and attempt some flying techniques. Rawlings landed some nice shots in the clinch and looked to have taken round one.

In the opening seconds of the second round, however, the Dancing With the Stars runner-up opened with a jumping switch kick that sent Rawlings crashing to the mat with a thud.
