The Florida Based Pillow Fight Championships Will Be On ESPN2 This Weekend
This weekend, ESPN2 flips to ESPN8:The Ocho and the lineup is packed. The highlight on the schedule is Friday night at 10pm with the Pillow Fight Championships. Be ready to stay up late, because at midnight they’re airing the 2023 Corgi Races.
11 of the 14 fighters in the Pillow Fight Championships are from South Florida but will make the trek to he Rock Hill Sports Arena in Rock Hill, SC. this Friday night. “PFC fights combine super intense fighter athleticism, spirited competition, and of course, our specialized, patent-pending PFC Combat Pillow that makes a distinctive bang when it hits,” said PFC CEO Steve Williams. “Get ready to witness a remarkable display of skill, strategy, and adrenaline-pumping action for the title and the cash. The PFC fights will be combat unlike anything ever seen on ESPN.”
The match I’m most looking forward to is when a new PFC US Women’s Champion will be crowned. Seasoned PFC veteran Kendahl Voelker battles MMA World Champion “The German Tank” Julia Dorny. Julia is a German athlete who has won various World and European Championships in three martial arts disciplines. She is the only female athlete in the world who has won championships in judo, mixed martial arts and sumo wrestling. We’ll see how she fights with a pillow come Friday night.
