UFC star Paige VanZant heating up for MMA return with scorching Bikram yoga sessions

UFC star Paige VanZant is heating up for her octagon comeback with sizzling hot Bikram yoga sessions.

The American MMA star was beaten last time out, on points by Jessica Rose-Clark, on her flyweight debut.

But she already looks in sensational shape for her next UFC bout after sweating and stretching in one of the gruelling classes.

A standard Bikram yoga class is only for the hardcore practitioner.

Classes run for 90 minutes and consist of the same series of 26 postures, all set in a room heated up to 42 °C

VanZant was putting herself through dangerous dehydrating processes to campaign at strawweight and made the move up in January, only to suffer her fourth MMA defeat.

The loss did not harm her positive outlook and the former Dancing With the Stars guest stunned fans with a display of her dance moves on Instagram.

The 24-year-old came second when she appeared on the 2016 series and made her a cross-over star.

The fighter captioned the post ‘Practicing for my @dancingabc redemption’, hinting at a return to the dancefloor.

But VanZant has no plans for a career switch.

She tagged the post with “JK (just kidding) still a gangster fighter.”
