After enjoying the Bro Hug post today, I went in search of facts to back up the wild emotional arguments that had bubbled up from the Bloody Elbow community.

And boy, did I find a story!

It turns out Snowden was onto something--it was just the tip of the iceberg! Hugging has infected the MMA community like never before.

Would you believe two MMA students are out to break the Guinness Record for longest hug?

Check it out:

The two men, both practitioners of Mixed Martial Arts, are set to earn a place in the Guinness Book of Records by staging the world's longest hug this weekend.

The pair plan to cuddle each other for 25 hours to raise money for KIDS Yorkshire and the Humber, a former Mail charity of the year supporting disabled children and their families.

Throughout their record-breaking attempt, the pair must remain in a two-handed hold at all times, unable to eat, drink or separate for one moment.

The pair are hoping to break the record owned by Pat Barry and Mirko Cro-Cop.
