Michael Irvin And Chuck Liddell Ready To Put On Their Dancing Shoes

michael-irvin-dancing-with-the-starsTotal Pro Sports – It is not the first place you would expect to see an MMA knockout artist or a former NFL smash-mouth wide receiver, but beginning in September you can find Chuck Liddell and Michael Irvin twinkling their toes on the dance floor.

The two were among 16 celebrities chosen to be on the 9th edition of Dancing With The Stars and whether they can continue to build on the success that previous athletes have had on the show remains to be seen.

Also making an appearance is Joanna Krupa, but with no Terrell Owens as a partner don’t expect any entertaining sound bites from her.

Of the previous eight winners, five have been athletes, including Irvin’s former teammate Emmitt Smith.  Also on that list is US Short track speed skater Apolo Anton Ohno, Indy Racing League driver Helio Castroneves, former US Olympian Kristi Yamaguchi and US gymnast Shawn Johnson.

For this season’s edition, Irvin, Liddell and Krupa will be joined by Louie Vito, Natalie Coughlin, Donny Osmond, Mya, Macy Gray, Aaron Carter, Melissa Joan Hart, Debi Mazar, Ashley Hamilton, Kathy Ireland, Kelly Osbourne, Mark Dacascos, and Tom DeLay.
