We've all had those rounds where just every single thing goes wrong - we block the crossup the wrong way, we guess wrong on wakeup, we make an execution error at the worst point in time... Well, imagine all of this happening in the very same round, and you pretty much have this video.

One of LiangHuBBB's latest, it shows just how fast you can be defeated in a variety of games. Some of these situations at the end are glitched, though which ones are specified in the video description, but the vast majority of them are regular situations from regular matches.

Ultimates are coming back to Killer Instinct.

Ever since the release of 2013's Xbox One exclusive, fans have been requesting the return of the large finishing moves. Looks like the wait is over.

Jago, Thunder, Maya, TJ Combo, and Tusk will be the first served, and each Ultimate can be performed by hitting LP+LK quickly after the start of an Ultra. These finishers can only be activated while still on the first lifebar (Supreme Victory) and only after launching into an Ultra.

UFC fighter channels her inner Sagat at the Fight Night 104 weigh-ins, Angela 'Overkill' Hill is back with another amazing Street Fighter tribute

Angela "Overkill" Hill is set to face off against Jessica "Bate Estaca" Andrade at UFC Fight Night 104 in Houston, Texas this weekend. Each of the fighters on the card participated in the official weigh-ins earlier today, stepping on the scale in front of fans and press to see who did and didn't make weight for their match up.

Hill, whose fighting background lies in Muay Thai, arrived at the event in shorts, hand wraps, and an eye patch across her face in honor of Street Fighter's own king of Muay Thai, Sagat.

After squaring up against Andrade -- which is a common practice after each weigh-in for promotional and hype generating purposes -- Overkill launched into Sagat's trademark arms-crossed laugh.

Black Canary revealed for Injustice 2 - featuring game play within trailer

Black Canary has just been revealed via IGN's YouTube channel. After the jump, you'll be able to see Black Canary's trailer featuring some of her game play.

As expected, she hosts attacks that feature her screaming like a loud siren at her opponents in order to inflict damage upon them. Interestingly enough, she appears to have a lot of grapples.

It appears as though her Super attack can be triggered while in the air. Whether she is only able to trigger it in the air or is capable of using it while on the ground is currently unknown.

During the first Injustice game, we only saw a picture of Black Canary that Green Arrow (from the other universe/reality) was admiring. Injustice 2 will let us play as Black Canary.

Itazan shows us why Zangief is considered strong in Street Fighter 5 Season 2, watch his masterful display of the character as he faces Iwate's Balrog

Last night on DaigoTheBeasTV, Itabashi Zangief went up against Iwate in the latest stage of the show's Donation Colosseum. The outstanding Gief player and one of the world's highest ranked (Master) Balrog players clashed in an exciting Street Fighter 5 Season 2 match up.

In Season 1, many felt that Zangief was one of the weakest characters in the game. After the balance changes, however, he has climbed the ranks. If you aren't sure what it is that makes the classic world warrior so strong this season, allow Itazan to show you.

HiFight put together a quick highlight reel for Itazan, which you can find below. In it, you'll find masterful play of the character as he gives Balrog (a character without an invincible reversal) and incredibly hard time.
