Earlier today, Sp00ky of Team Sp00ky hosted a stream with IFC YipeS of BROKENTIER, Larry “ShinBlanka” Dixon, organizer of FINAL ROUND, and John “SweetJohnnyCage” Gallagher, co-organizer of East Coast Throwdown, to discuss some of the details for the upcoming FINAL ROUND 16. One subject that came up in the discussion was CURLEH MUSTACHE BATTLE ROYAL, which was briefly teased in the second FR16 trailer.
