Former UFC female bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey will be one coach on the new version of “Battle of the Network Stars.”
The series airs on ABC Thursday, June 29 at 9 p.m. ET and goes for 10 weeks.
Rousey will coach opposite DeMarcus Ware. The show will bring together “current and classic TV stars from multiple eras and different genres against one another in a variety of athletic games. Viewers can look forward to seeing a fresh take at some of the classic show’s sporting events like Tug of War, Archery, Kayak Relay, the Obstacle Course and the Dunk Tank,” according to a release.
Battle of the Network Stars was a hit back in the 1970s and ’80s for ABC Sports, running for 13 years.
