Step aside Chuck Liddell, because fellow UFC veteran Junior dos Santos just received four perfect 10 scores for his choreographed dance to Haddaway’s “What Is Love” on Brazil’s latest season of Dancing with the Stars.

Dos Santos, the former UFC heavyweight champion, came first place with an overall score of 58.4 points out of 60 and dazzled the crowd with his shadowboxing and acrobatics. The 35-year-old even had a moonwalk up his sleeve at 1:34.

Check out the video below but, be warned, what’s seen can not be unseen.

Dos Santos last fought earlier this year at UFC on ESPN 3, where he suffered a first-round knockout loss to streaking heavyweight contender Francis Ngannou. The Brazilian fan favorite has since called for a rematch with ‘The Predator’ and would ultimately like to challenge reigning heavyweight champ Stipe Miocic in a trilogy bout.

As of today, dos Santos is ranked #3 in the official UFC heavyweight rankings and #1 on Dancing with the Stars.
