While thousands upon thousands of dedicated fans were watching the Evolution Championship Series play out this past weekend both in person and across the world, one unlikely source was also eyeing the largest fighting game tournament in the world: ESPN’s SportsCenter.

In the day since Evo 2015 closed out, the folks at SportsCenter have reported on Woshige’s heartbreaking counting error against Ogawa in the early rounds of the Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- finals as a testament to the costly mistakes made in competitive events the world over. Much like an American football player who drops the ball before entering the end zone, an early celebration cost Woshige a match and sent him to losers bracket, though he did end up placing third when all was said and done.

For a look at how the sports world views our most prestigious competition, give the clips below a bit of your time.
