Moscow Fighting Arena 2012

Fighting.ru project is proud to announce ninth installment of annual series of Russian fighting tournaments - Moscow Fighting Arena 2012. It will take place in Moscow on August 25th-26th. Since 2004, Moscow Fighting Arena brings together players from Russia, Ukraine, Belarus and other countries.

This year our efforts are backed up by a number of awesome sponsors. We have some really cool stuff in prizes this year, including PS Vita consoles from Sony, capture cards from AVermedia, sticks from MadCatz, and gaming gear from Thermaltake. Make sure to check the complete prize list below! But we fight not only for prizes and “gold” - we also run qualifiers to IeSF Tekken World Championship and to SF 25th Anniversary European Championship.

Also we plan to be streaming live the whole event - 2 days, 10 hours a day. Stream will be available here: http://www.fighting.ru/mfa
But just in case: the plan is to stream via Own3D, but we will fall back to Twitch if something goes wrong. Voice comments will be available in Russian only, but we will make sure to provide some English subtitles for you guys ) Embed codes for these stream accounts can be found in the bottom of this post.
