Red Bull Kumite 2018 results

Update: This story has been updated with final results.

Red Bull Kumite is back with its 2018 edition, this time taking place in the Fall instead of the Spring.

The event is happening in Paris, France, and as usual there will be a ton of matches and some real good showmanship in between them.

Fourteen players were invited, but only twelve of them could make it in the end — FOX|Tokido, Mouz|Problem X, FD|Fujimura, CYG|Daigo, UYU|OilKing, RB|Luffy, Liquid|Nemo, RB|Bonchan, Rise|Smug, AB|Poongko, AB|Gunfight and Filipino Champ.

The other two invited players, PG|Infiltration and Rise|MenaRD, couldn't make it to the event due to ongoing legal issues in the former's case, and visa problems in the latter's case. PG|Infiltration was replaced with NASR|AngryBird, while Rise|MenaRD's spot will go to the Last Chance Qualifier, meaning there are 3 spots up for grab instead of 2.

The first day of the event will host the Last Chance Qualifier where players will compete to get a prestigious spot in the Sunday finals alongside the 13 players already set to compete.

Streaming is being done at Red Bull eSports.

This year, like last year, the only fighting game present in the lineup is Tekken 7.

With as many as 32 countries participating, there are a bunch of players looking to prove themselves on the world stage and bring home the gold for their homeland.

Just a few of the players set to compete are South Korea's ROX|Chanel, Japan's Hakaioh, Indonesia's SOG|Meat, Malaysia's HXI|Zaba, Australia's Dee-On Grey and Sweden's Cyrox.
