UK’s KingJae and Pokchop of ATL Koreans battle in a HYPE Tekken 7 FT3 at EVO 2017

A coastal rivalry has been brewing between the UK and ATL.

Justin ‘KingJae’ Nelson was just at EVO 2017 this past weekend, and while there he was able to get quite a few casual matches in. And some were even with – you guessed it – the ATL Koreans.

In this particular video you’ll see him square off with Ricky ‘Pokchop’ Walker, Jr, one of the founders of ATL Koreans. Get prepared from some smack talk, hype moments in this first-to-3.

But why is this significant?

A friendly rivalry has be brewing between the USA and UK. It all started when LionzDen tournament organizer, Ozzy the Liono, made a surprise visit to CEO 2017 all the way from London. He interviewed the ATL Koreans, asking them what they thought about their UK counterparts. In so many words, they said the UK and Europe are “free.”

As you could imagine, that didn’t sit well with the UK and EU fighting game community, and many vowed the take the ATL Koreans up on the challenge.

Big ups to KingJae for being willing to cross the pond and put all of Europe on his back!
