It's not everyday we get to live a East vs. West rivalry like the days of Daigo Umehara and Justin Wong facing off in Street Fighter 3: Third Strike, but the advent of social media has made it easier to reach out and call out others no matter where they are.

Dominique "SonicFox" McLean and Goichi "Go1" Kishida finally faced off tonight in their head-to-head first to 10 exhibition match tonight after a month of calling each other out at tournaments and on Twitter.

There were unfortunately some technical difficulties with the stream causing viewers to miss out on the first four or five matches, but it was smooth sailing from there (if your name happened to be CO|Go1 at least).

FOX|SonicFox started out the set strong with two straight wins over his Japanese rival, but from there it pretty much became the Go1 Show. Kishida would go on to win the next three matches straight and finish the set 10-4 over SonicFox.

Both players are heavily focused on their offense and relentless pressure, but Go1 seemed to be almost exclusively in control after the third game with his team of Adult Gohan, Cell and Super Saiyan Vegeta. SonicFox stuck with his team of Hit, Goku Black and Android 16 for the entire set as well.

Let's start off the highlights with one of the most impressive sights. Go1 uses five meters at once to finish off a 90-percent damaging 122-hit combo to melt away Hit's life bar in game 14. Check out the rest after the jump.

In game seven, Go1 goes all out with Vegeta and Adult Gohan to take down SonicFox's beefy Android 16 that wouldn't go down after taking a beating.

Go1 goes up in game eight to maul Android 16 with his yellow Cell play.

Down to only Goku Black in game eight, SonicFox tries to desparately survive Go1's onslaught.

Go1's Adult Gohan pressure never ends as he stuffs SonicFox's attempt at a counter in game nine.

Adult Gohan gets absolutely filthy with high-low mix ups against a cornered SonicFox in game ten.

SonicFox shows signs of life by coming back against Go1 in game ten, and finishes the job with Goku Black.

G1 pulls off a 60-percent to death combo against Android 16 using Adult Gohan and Vegeta.

Go1 makes SonicFox guess on his blocks for almost eight straight seconds before finally being opened up to face the wrath of Adult Gohan...again.

Go1 finishes the job and ends the exhibition with his boy Gohan taking the set 10-4.
