It shows VanZant with a chokehold locked in on a soldier on his knees, before the man slumps backwards out cold.
But it was all part of a demonstration the blonde fighter was putting on, with a fellow soldier holding a microphone so she could explain the move.
And those watching seemed to whoop in delight at their pal's misfortune of being the volunteer.
VanZant, who rakes it in with subscriptions to her personal website, captioned it: "Haha whoops. Accidentally did this on a USO tour in Afghanistan."
She also added: "Don't try this at home."
VanZant was cut by the UFC last year after a first round defeat to Amanda Ribas on Fight Island.

She wasn't short of offers upon her departure from Dana White's promotion, but opted to join the brutal Bare Knuckle FC.
Having lost her opener to Britain Hart in February, she was back in action against Ostovich in Florida late last month – the last fighter that she'd manage to beat in the UFC.
Again she lost via a decision, but isn't letting her bruising losing habit get her down.
In a series of pictures posted on Instagram, VanZant smiled for the camera while sat on her bed, flipping both middle fingers of her gruesomely swollen hands.
She captioned the post: "Guess what b****es???!! I’m still smiling!!!
