According to ESPN, the BMF challenger will be featured on an upcoming episode of My Wish a series on ESPN that "will feature stars from the NFL, MLB and the UFC. Since its beginning in 2006, the series has worked with Make-A-Wish to fulfill 79 sports-themed wishes for children with critical illnesses."
