Former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva will be one of the many celebrities to appear on “Celebity Sweat,” which premiers January 10 on AXS TV.
The series, hosted by Eric Fleishman, explores how celebrities, athletes and entertainers stay fit. It airs at 1 p.m. ET for 10 episodes.
“’Celebrity Sweat’ provides high energy entertainment with great personalities, while conveying the importance of fitness and nutrition,” Todd Kline, SVP, Partnerships and Media, AEG Global Partnerships, who brought the project to the network, said. “With the support of so many influential figures in sports and entertainment, we’re excited to introduce this behind-the-scenes look at celebrity lifestyle to our viewers.”
Along with Silva, fellow UFC fighters – for the time being – Cung Le, Evander Holyfield, Victor Ortiz, Billy Blanks and others will appear on the show. “The Spider” is set to return from a year-long layoff in January at UFC 183 against Nick Diaz.
