It was no different on October 22, as a match between Ariel ‘FightingGM’ Capellan and Kith Mercer came down to the wire and had everyone on the edge of their seats, including the casters, who could barely contain their excitement.

The series was tied at 1-1 with the last best of five match going down to the final fight. Both players were low on health as the timer was running out and FightingGM took a massive hit before mounting a miraculous comeback at the death.

The American blocked a low-high-low combo and missed his rage drive, but amazingly managed to recover and fire off a quick attack before creating some space and, with just one second left on the clock, hitting a mid-kick to finish off his opponent.

Meanwhile, casters Steve ‘Tasty Steve’ Scott and Reepal ‘Rip’ Parbhoo were completely losing it, screaming and shouting throughout as key attacks hit and were blocked in the final seconds of the match.
