Video: UFC-hopeful Jordan Leavitt puts on a one-man dance party after submitting DWCS opponent

Recommended Posts

Jordan Leavitt picked up a major victory at the Dana White’s Contender Series, Season 4 premiere Tuesday – and danced up a storm afterward.

A short-notice replacement, Leavitt (7-0) took on Luke Flores in the card’s opening bout. After dragging his opponent to the mat in the opening minute, Leavitt fended off submission attempts to lock in one of his own, submitting Flores (9-2) in Round 1 via arm triangle.

Immediately after the tap, Leavitt sprung to his feet. That’s when an all-out dance party broke out.

Leavitt first dove into an impressive split, displaying tremendous flexibility. After rising back up, Leavitt wasn’t done. The worm was next – and somewhere Johnny Walker was shuddering.

Leavitt’s rhythm continued to the post-fight announcement, where he wiggled until his arm was raised. After the fight, Leavitt explained the celebration in an interview with Laura Sanko on the broadcast.

“Oh, (it’s) nothing,” Leavitt said. “I just do the splits. My first amateur fight, I just happened to do it as a joke and it became my thing. And it’s become my thing. I guess I’ll be doing the splits until I’m 40 and done with this.”

Check out Leavitt’s submission and subsequent dance moves in the video below:

The submission might earn Jordan Leavitt a UFC contract, but hitting the splits and doing the worm earned him legend status 🤣#DWCS pic.twitter.com/Gv7ivBpd7U
