A couple of weeks ago Fighting Game Twitter was lighting up with beefs between professional rappers and pro fighting game players. Of the interactions going on, a back and forth between rapper Waka Flocka Flame and top competitor Dominique "EG|SonicFox" McLean stood out among the pack and got people actively talking.

The short version is that Waka Flocka put out a tweet saying how good he is at fighting games and that no one would want to test that, and thus began a list of comments with people suggesting opponents for him. SonicFox's name kept coming up, and though there was a lot of talk between the two, it was unclear whether or not they'd actually have a grudge match. This morning, we learned that the bout is indeed going to happen.

A tweet from Waka Flocka's official Twitter account made the announcement, asking fans if they're ready to see the fight. In classic Flocka fashion, a little bit of smack talk was also injected into the tweet to get people fired up.

"๐Ÿคœ THIS FOR THE FGC & FOR ALL THOSE THAT GREW UP ON FIGHTING GAMES!!" wrote Waka Flocka about the match up.

At this point in time, there aren't a lot of details on the specifics of the grudge match. Other than the fact that we know it's happening, information such as which game(s) they'll be playing, what the set format will be, and when the match is going down have not yet been divulged.

We also don't know where this set is going to take place. One might imagine that it would be held at an upcoming major event where the two can link up, but online is an option here as well.

The tweet did include a sign up form page, though, that appears to be the way fans will get more information on the exhibition. This form prompts users to provide their email address, seemingly so that they can be notified when the announcements are being made, as well as other optional things like Instagram handle, Twitter handle, phone number, and more.

Based on SonicFox's background and some of the talks between the two, there's a chance we'll see Waka Flocka and the top NetherRealm Studios game competitor compete against each other in a modern Mortal Kombat game. There have also been murmurs that it could be a Tekken title, though SonicFox appears willing to do battle in any game of choice.

Who do you think will win this grudge match? Waka Flocka Flame or SonicFox? Let us know in the comments below.
