3 rounds down…4 rounds to go!
Some of the remaining 16 fighters actually have begun to play their 4th round matches. Thanx to everyone who has played their matches, win or lose. This tournament is proving to be very popular and successful. With only 16 fighters remaining, this is in essence the true Gold Division of 16 fighters. As of this posting, there are only 14 remaining fighters.
For the first time since the beginning of the SFCCL, all the matches in the 3rd Round were played. No more forfeits, decisions, or any of that other crap. That makes my job so easy! Those fighters advancing are truly earning their way to the top of the SFCCL. Congratulations to all the winners for advancing to the 4th round – The Sweet 16. And for all the fighters who saw their season come to an end in Round 3, I think can I speak for everyone in the SFCCL community when I say "Thank You" for being part of the SFCCL inaugural season. Now join the rest of us, and sit back & watch SUPER BRAWL play itself out!
As a reminder, no fighter may advance twice in the tournament via forfeit. However, I believe all matches going forward will be played out. There are only 15 fights remaining in the tournament, with the 4th round hosting 8 of those matches.

MATCH OF THE WEEK
As in last week, I’m going to refrain from spotlighting any one particular match as all 8 matches in Round 3 should be Match of the Week.
However, it should be applauded that one of the founding members, ElGeneral, is still alive in the 4th round. Also, a brand new member joining after Week 25, HADUKEN3, has both of his fighters advancing to the 4th round. The first mirror-match of the tournament is taking place in the Green Bracket, in which DELTRON2020’s fighters are meeting. Only one of his fighters will advance per league rules.
Also, everyone should note the records of the remaining 16 fighters. They are impressive, and rightfully deserve to be where they are now.
