Junior dos Santos made his debut at Brazil’s Dancing With The Stars on Sunday night, and he did not disappoint.
Alongside professional dancer Ana Paula Guedes, the former UFC heavyweight champion danced to Haddaway’s “What Is Love” and entertained the crowd to win 58.4 points out of 60 with four 10 perfect scores, enough to land him first place among men and women.
The Brazilian version of Dancing With The Stars (“Dança dos Famosos” in Portuguese) airs every Sunday at Globo’s Domingão do Faustão, one of the most-watched TV shows in the country.
