WATCH: Yes, Competitive Pillow Fighting Is A Thing, And It's Coming To PPV!
Was anyone else completely unaware that competitive pillow fighting was a thing? They call themselves PFC.
More, from Reuters:
Pillow fighting is moving out of the bedroom and into the boxing ring when Pillow Fight Championship (PFC) holds its first live, pay-per-view event in Florida on Jan. 29.
Steve Williams, the man with the dream of turning childhood horseplay into a professional combat sport, said PFC delivers all the drama of hand-to-hand combat without the gore of mixed martial arts or boxing.
"It's not something where you sit there and laugh and feathers are flying," Williams, CEO of PFC, told Reuters.
"It's serious. It's hardcore swinging with specialised pillows."
Although the male and female competitors in January's event mostly hail from the cutthroat worlds of MMA and boxing, children will still sleep soundly after seeing the bouts.
"The only difference between our fights and MMA fights is that nobody gets hurt," he said.
"The fighters don't like to get hurt, and there's a lot of people who don't want to see the blood. They want to see good competition, they just don't want to see the violence."
What a time to be alive.
