- New MuchOriginal Special Airs December 28th at 8pm ET (30min.) -
TORONTO, Dec. 10 /CNW/ - Ready to watch Canada's most outrageous glam
rocker go from guyliner to deadly gogo-plata submission holds? MuchMusic
reveals all December 28 at 8pm ET in its gritty new reality special Robin
Black: Cage Fighter.
It's no joke. Black's hellbent on landing a pro mixed martial arts
contract and he stops at nothing to make it happen. Much cameras capture the
action as he ditches his beer-swillin' ways in favour of an unbelievably
grueling training regime. Over 18 months Black packs on 20 pounds of muscle,
learns a full spectrum of fighting styles from Brazilian jiu-jitsu to
traditional boxing and endures a world of hurt that rivals Wile E. Coyote's
injury-prone pursuit of Road Runner.
The holiday special features Black competing in open trials, rushing
frantically to the hospital and training with an elite cadre of cage fighters
- Georges St. Pierre, Mark Hominick and Sam Stout - who coach him through the
pain. Canadian Idol's Jake Gold is Black's manager and he makes a special
appearance to reel Black back from this apparent wayward life path.
Black comes clean about his crash course with self punishment: "I love
the idea of testing human potential. There's just no better way of doing that
than getting in a cage with someone who wants to punch the eyeliner off you!"
Once again muchmusic.com is the choice online destination for exclusive
content. Extended fight scenes, bone-crushing bonus footage, exciting photos
and viewer blogs pump up fans beginning Dec. 27.
