ABC has just unveiled their list of new cast members on this season of Dancing with the Stars and as a sports fan I'm pretty down.

We've got NFL legend and Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Doug Flutie, Superbowl winner and MVP Von Miller, Pittsburgh Steeler and Pro Bowl wide receiver Antonio Brown, and the UFC's own Paige VanZant.

While I'm happy for everyone involved, I think Paige being on the show is good for UFC and for her personal brand.

Here's what E! Online had to say about her:

From the perspective of 6 random people

Paige VanZant (partnered with Mark Ballas)

DWTS Super-Fan: I don't know, somebody's daughter?
Lawyer: Silvio's daughter?
Entertainment Reporter: Sounds like a Gossip Girl character, but I'm going to guess Disney Channel alum?
Twenty-Something Bro: Nope. She's pretty cute, but no.
Theme Park Attractions Host: She's a UFC fighter and she's pretty young, I think.

Who She Really Is: An MMA fighter who competes in the Women's Strawweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

What do you think?

Will Paige VanZant do well on DWTS?
