Along with VanZant, the season includes Mischa Barton, Nyle DiMarco, Kim Fields, Marla Maples, Wanya Morris, Geraldo Rivera, Jodie Sweetin and Ginger Zee, as well as athletes Von Miller, Antonio Brown and Doug Flutie.
VanZant (6-2) was expected to be the next big thing in the 115-pound division, however that was put to a stop in her last outing, when Rose Namajunas tapped her out in December.
Other MMA fighters that have stepped onto the ‘Dancing with the Stars’ floor are Randy Couture and Chuck Liddell.
The former dancing queen will show off her moves to the masses beginning March 21 on ABC.
