Nemo and Fanatiq may have $8,000 money match in the works for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3

AGE|Fanatiq and Nemo may be facing off in a $8,000 USD money match in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 in the near future.

The details were openly discussed on Twitter, when Fanatiq suggested a few days ago that he'd like to compete with Nemo in a first-to-15 or 20 money match.

Nemo recently responded that he was "gonna accept" and things may go down the weekend of the Capcom Cup, which is Dec. 14, 2013.

Nemo has made quite the name for himself in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, being one of the pioneers of "Nemo's team" a squad composed of Nova, Dr. Strange and Spencer.

He also defeated AGE|NYChrisG and coL|Filipino Champ in two separate high profile money matches during the EVO 2013 weekend.

Fanatiq may be the best high profile money match UMvC3 player in the entire community, as if I'm not mistaken, he has yet to lose a single one to date.

If these two heavyweights collide, who do you think will come out on top? You can vote in our poll after the jump.
