UFC strawweight Paige VanZant has joined the cast of "Dancing with the Stars" season 22, with the show set to debut on March 21 on ABC.
VanZant joins another all-star cast of celebrities and sports stars on the show this season including Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown, "Fuller House" star Jodie Sweetin and Super Bowl champion Von Miller.
The 21-year-old joins Hall of Famers Chuck Liddell and Randy Couture as UFC fighters who have appeared on the show, but she is the first ever to join the series as an active competitor.

VanZant last foght in December, when she lost by rear naked choke to Rose Namajunas at UFC Fight Night in Las Vegas.
Prior to that loss, VanZant had won her first three fights in the UFC as she climbed into the top 10 rankings at 115 pounds.
"Dancing with the Stars" will kick off in March with the show running all the way through May for the celebrities who make it all the way through the elimination-style competition.
Before she was a fighter, VanZant was actively involved in dance and cheerleading so this seems like a natural fit for the Team Alpha Male fighter.
VanZant is expected to compete on the show while still training for her return to the Octagon later this year. While nothing has been booked, VanZant has targeted UFC 200 for her next fight but she'll look to knock out a "Dancing with the Stars" championship first.
