One even scrapped with Conor McGregor. No matter where they come from PFC3: Pound Down is going to be the fight of their dreams.
It's dynamic action without the gore," said Steve Williams, CEO of Pillow Fighting Championship. "People are surprised at first–not sure whether to take it seriously. But once they see it they're sucked right in. We're taking this mainstream—talk about relatability, who hasn't been in a pillow fight?"
Using specially developed combat pillows, incorporating handles and rip-stop nylon, the combatants face off in a boxing ring and then let a mix of instincts and strategy drive them. Intense cardiovascular training is a must.
