São Paulo

Pillow fighting, a sport that involves participants fighting with pillows and already has a federation in the state of São Paulo, returns to the country with a prize of R$5,000 for the winner. The tests take place this week, between Friday (5) and Sunday (7), during the Arnold South America event at Expo Center Norte.

The sport differs from other disciplines, such as UFC and jiu jitsu, as it is mandatory for competitors – professional athletes – to use pillows instead of gloves. The fighting model originated in Florida, in the United States, and takes place inside a ring, octagon or appropriate platform for combat.

On that occasion, 50 registered athletes will compete for the prize. The weekend program, from 1:30 pm to 6 pm, will also include a presentation by children and a space dedicated to the introduction and practice of the sport by the public.

The ticket, with access to one day of the event, varies between R$ 105 (half) and R$ 210 (full). Solidarity entry, which requires the donation of one kg of food, costs R$165. Those interested in attending the three days of Arnold South America can purchase a passport (R$530, in full) on the website.
