“BIG” JOHN MCCARTHY IN NEW WEB SERIES
St. Charles, Illinois—July 19, 2010—Big John McCarthy fans will be happy to see “Big” John make a cameo appearance in the new Web series Medallion Mondays.
In the sixth episode, “Motiv8n’ U,” “Big” John McCarthy, the world’s preeminent mixed martial arts referee, tries to help Medallion Media Group President Adam Mock “visionquest” by placing him in a rear naked choke. Fans will enjoy McCarthy’s smooth on-screen performance. “Big” John’s natural comedic ability will carry on in episode seven, “Let’s Get It On!” which will air next Monday, July 26, 2010, when he will referee a grudge match between Mock and “COISPORC” Josh “Ponceman” Perry. Both episodes highlight McCarthy’s upcoming autobiography, Let’s Get It On, written with Loretta Hunt, to be released in September of 2011 by Medallion Press.
Let’s Get It On (ISBN 9781605421414) tells the story of a man who devoted his life to the critically condemned sport of mixed martial arts and helped it to soar. This 350-page book will give the iconic referee’s firsthand account of the sport’s roller-coaster journey and will include a 20-page insert with pictures and captions from McCarthy’s private library and from noted MMA photographers. The color and black-and-white photos will chronicle moments of McCarthy’s life and career. Also included will be images of UFC fight badges, posters, programs, and other memorabilia from McCarthy’s over 300-piece private collection.
