V Week at ESPN – UFC “Fight Like Hell Night” in Honor of Stuart Scott
It’s the 17th annual V Week at ESPN, when the company dedicates content and programming to drive awareness and raise funds for the V Foundation.  For a fifth year, ESPN and UFC have teamed to dedicate a telecast as “Fight Like Hell Night” in honor of the late Stuart Scott.  The original idea came in a discussion with the UFC of how to support the V Foundation.  The marriage of Stuart’s unforgettable “Fight like hell” quote from his ESPY speech paired with his love of the UFC and MMA came together perfectly.  Fight Like Hell Night will feature Stuart Scott-related content and vignettes on the battle against cancer by UFC athletes. To learn more, please visit www.V.org/UFC.
