All good things come to an end? We'll put a question mark at the end of that saying since as of this moment it is unknown whether Mortal Kombat will be featured at future Major League Gaming tournaments. One thing is certain though, Mortal Kombat will be featured at MLG Fall Championship as the 2012 MLG Championship season comes to conclusion. Taking place this weekend, November 2-4 at Dallas Convention Center (650 S. Griffin Street) with the line-up of players looking stronger than ever, and a total prize money of $16,700 set to be divided between the final 8 men left standing, let's take a look at the contenders.

Leading the field will be the double Evolution world champion, Carl "Perfect Legend" White, who finished 9th, 3rd and 5th at Winter, Spring and Summer Championships respectively. One of the toughest obstacles on his way to a first 2012 season Mortal Kombat MLG Championship title is expected to be DMG CD Jr., who can be considered the most consistent among the top players at MLG events: winner of the Winter Championship and the follow-up MLG Spring Fighter Arena, 4th place at Spring Championship and runner-up at Summer Championship. Kung Lao has been his character of choice lately, the same character Perfect Legend is best known for, and CD Jr. openly challenged the double world champion for a mirror match in a recent interview done by Netherrealm Coverage (click here to read what Perfect Legend had to say about it).

Also in Dallas, competing for the grand prize will be KN|VSM|OBS|EMP REO, winner of Summer Championship, KN DetroitBalln winner of Spring Championship and TFA|RZR Pig of the Hut. The Kenshi master won the MLG Summer Fighter Arena as well as placed Top 5 at both, Spring and Summer Championships. Local Texas heroes, lead by KH Cat and KH Showtime, will be ready to take on anyone. The latter was complimented by MLG with a "breakout player" award for his Top 5 performance at Summer Championship. The ever solid Chicago GGA crew, lead by the Edenian Princess loyalist- Osu16bit, and his fellow roommate and Seasons Beatings: Ascension champion- Dizzy, is also competing. It doesn't stop there as the best West Coast players, including the Terry brothers (IGL DJT & IGL MIT) as well as EGP Tyrant are coming. From the opposite side of the U.S., CD Jr.'s brothers VSM Maxter and KN Crazy Dominican will be challenging for the title just as hard.

Finally, to spice things up and make this the most anticipated MLG championship of the season there will be two new challengers on the U.S. grounds. One, the winner of the community organized online qualifier and a Noob Saibot player, Madzin will be making his way all the way from Germany. The other, DR Gross coming from The Dominican Republic, will be looking to make an impact taking confidence from his performance at Video X Games, a post-Evo2k12 tournament where he defeated the Evo world champion in the grand finals in front of his home crowd.

Mortal Kombat tournament start is scheduled for Friday, November 2 at 9 PM local (CDT) time with the winners bracket round one. The championship match is scheduled for a 11 PM Saturday start and on Sunday a team exhibition is to take place. For full MLG Dallas schedule as well as broadcast information click here.
