Watch EVO 2011 Grand Finals Live

This post has not been edited by the GamesBeat staff. Opinions by GamesBeat community writers do not necessarily reflect those of the staff.

Evolution 2011 is the Super Bowl of fighting-game tournaments — if the Super Bowl ran for three days with limited commercial interruption. Over one thousand players from around the world came to Las Vegas to battle in Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition, Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds, Mortal Kombat, Tekken 6, and BlazBlue: Continuum Shift 2. Now eight players remain in each game, and by the end of the day one will rise to become an EVO champion. Hardcore fans have been eagerly anticipating this event, and now the waiting is finally over.

Note: Evolution 2011 runs double-elimination tournaments. If someone loses in the main bracket, they are sent to a loser's bracket where they can still win the competition but have to defeat more opponents. I'll update the results as they happen.
