There is so much incredible fighting action going on this week that I decided to post a breakdown of everything just to sort it all out. Want to see the very first AE tourneys? Is MVC3 still evolving? Is MK picking up steam? One thing's for sure: This week is a great one for fighting fans!

Guard Crush 17 is going on right now at Next Level in Brooklyn. Spooky is out of town, so the usually godlike stream is being handled by someone else. Tonight is the debut of Mortal Kombat at Guard Crush.

  • Eduardo Perez, "PR Rog"
  • Tokido "The Murderface"
