Fighting in the Octagon is not the only skill that Junior dos Santos has.

Dos Santos has been shaking a leg or two at 'Danca dos Famosas' which is the Brazilian version of Dancing with the Stars and head reached the Top 5 of the competition. But his run at the dance show came to an end on Sunday, leaving him to focus solely on his next UFC bout that will take place in January.

Fewest votes at DWTS for the former Heavyweight Champ

Dos Santos was out of the show for a few weeks owing to the same leg injury that forced him out of the UFC Moscow main event against Alexander Volkov. However, he managed to get back and put up a performance, only to receive the least number of votes among the remaining five contestants.

His final score came to 137.1. which was 0.3 points behind the couple who came fourth in this week's voting scale.

Next up in his schedule is the headliner fight at UFC Raleigh where he goes up against Curtis Blaydes on January 25. He would be looking forward to getting back to the winning ways after he was knocked out in his previous outing to Francis Ngannou.
