Evo 2012 results

The dust has finally settled.

Evo 2012, the granddaddy of fighting game tournaments, has wrapped up after a wild weekend (July 6-8). Competitors were sent home empty handed and champions were crowned. Just as it has been since its birth, Evo was a memorable event.

Top players were vying for the ultimate prize and bragging rights in a slew of tournaments. Games such as Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition v.2012, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Mortal Kombat 9, King of Fighters XIII, and more were showcased.

An emotional Seth Killian gave thanks to Ultra Chen and the community for all that they've done for him and the fighting game scene. He made it clear that this would not be the end for him in the community and he remains a Capcom fan despite his move to Sony Santa Monica.

Who proved to be the best players in their fighting games? Head past the jump to see Evo 2012 results.
