Professional wrestler Paige VanZant is turning up the glitz, glam and heat with her latest racy little ensemble.

The American mixed martial artist snapped a series of mirror selfies as she donned a metallic charcoal two-piece featuring a balconette style bra top and strappy, barely-there bottoms. The Oregon native and resident paired the bold set with a super cropped mesh bedazzled chain shirt and posed in a fancy bathroom with lots of plants and natural sunlight. The 2019 SI Swimsuit model flaunted her ultra-sculpted abs, toned ams and strong legs and she showed off her voluminous, wavy blonde locks and bold smolder to her iPhone camera.

“Feeling good,” the 29-year-old, who is married to athlete Austin Vanderford commented.

“you look good 🔥🔥🔥,” Amber Fields commented.

“A smoke show that can knock people out. Right on,” another cheered.

The bare knuckle boxer, who was previously signed to the Ultimate Fighting Championship, where she competed in the flyweight division, grew up learning ballet, jazz and hip hop as her parents owned a dance studio. In 2016, VanZant was a runner-up alongside Mark Ballas on Season 22 of Dancing With the Stars.

“There is a lot more to me than just being a crazy fighter,” she said at the time. “All those dance lessons finally paid off. Dancing with the Stars was a really great experience. People were definitely surprised that I’m a fighter, or they couldn’t believe I’m a professional fighter, but I feel like I’m going to get that for a while. I’m excited to bring a new demographic over to MMA and the UFC.”
