After two grueling days of round robin sets in two different groups, the preliminary stages of Fighters Underground have been completed, and we will now move in to a double elimination bracket, with 8 players, to be played tomorrow.

It's been a fierce battle to get one of the top 8 spots, and the chance to fight for the lion's share of the $20,000 pot the tournament has.

Tough competitors such as FOX|Momochi, EG|K-Brad, EG|Ricki Ortiz and DNL|Chris Tatarian are already out of the running, but to find out who's still in it, and who each of them will be facing in their first match, continue below.

Matchup List


PG|Punk (Karin) vs. FOX|Justin Wong (Karin)
PIE|Smug (Balrog) vs. SPY|Filipino Champ (Dhalsim)
RB|Luffy (R. Mika) vs. RB (Urien)
Liquid|NuckleDu (Guile, R. Mika) vs. ZW|GamerBee (Necalli)
