Cris Cyborg Contacted About Dancing With The Stars

UFC featherweight champion Cris “Cyborg” Justino has reportedly been approached by Dancing With the Stars after her massive UFC 219 win on Saturday.

Soon Paige VanZant might not be the only UFC fighter to grace the ballroom on ABC’s hit TV show “Dancing With the Stars. According to reports, Cris “Cyborg” Justino was approached for next season.

The original report was made by sports gossip columnist Terez Owens and was later acknowledged by the UFC featherweight champion herself.

ABC is likely eager for another standout like VanZant who made it all the way to the finals of season 22 before ultimately losing to deaf “America’s Next Top Model” winner Nyle DiMarco and his professional dancing partner Peta Murgatroyd.

Her Team Alpha Male teammates were often seen in the audience cheering on the strawweight.

The series pairs celebrities with professional dancers for weekly dance competitions. Each week America votes off one couple. The remaining celebrity wins the coveted mirror ball trophy.

Former winners have included Drew Lachey, Emmitt Smith, Kristi Yamaguchi and Donny Osmond.

The show would be a great fit for Cyborg who used regular dance classes as a form of fitness and conditioning before her UFC 219 title defense.



Who would be her female dance partner?

Sage Northcott?

i don't see cyborg dancing gracefully.

I think they were hoping that Holly won that fight.

That dance video of Cyborg and Co. was oddly disturbing.

Gabi Garcia reminded me of Lurch in that video.

Cyborg doesn't strike me as a dancer.

Jeff Monson's dancing was quite lovely. I'd love to see Cyborg perform a Beauty and the Beast themed dance as well.  The only problem is that they would need a real ugly male dancer to play the role of the Beast to compliment her stunning Beauty.
