Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) strawweight Paige VanZant was back for episode two of “Dancing with the Stars” (DWTS) last night (Mon., March 28, 2016) on ABC, but was forced to compete with a different dance partner when Mark Ballas went down with a back injury.
I guess dancing is just like mixed martial arts (MMA).
“I just had to not think about that I was with a whole new partner,” VanZant said backstage. “It was scary. When I fight, opponents switch, so I thought about it like that and had to pull it together.”
VanZant (6-2) was last seen at UFC Fight Night 80 back in December, coming up short in a submission loss to Rose Namajunas. The 21-year-old Team Alpha Male product joins hall of fame light heavyweights Chuck Liddell and Randy Couture on the list of UFC stars to appear on DWTS.
