Because Crab Meat lost in the round of 64, Crab Meat couldn't participate the heavyweight consolation rumble at the end of the tournament.

Season 5.0

Crabmeat's first match in Season 5.0 was against Bullistic. Crabmeat won on a 37-8 judge's decision and advanced to the next preliminary round, where it faced Botknocker-19. However, Botknocker-19 had technical issues and was forced to forfeit. Crabmeat won by default and advanced to the final preliminary round, where it faced Heart of Gold. Heart of Gold won on a close 25-20 judge's decision and Crabmeat was eliminated from the tournament again.
