I heard about some top fighting game competitors that do this and I'm just wondering...

technically probably not. you are reproducing copyrighted material. Now whether or not the copyright owners will care is another story.

It may or may not fall under fair use though.

It might be considered fair use, but in all likelyhood it's not. It is presumably being broadcast on a commercial site for profit, it is presumably not just a short clip, it isn't for informative or educational purposes.

Do privacy issues apply when recording audio of someone without their permission in this situation?

legally no, but the polite thing to do would be to inform everybody and ask consent. People have a reasonable expectation that they aren't being recorded. Actually, wiretap laws vary state to state. I'm sure winternova could tell you about it better, but in most cases at worst only one person (which could be you) needs to be informed the conversation is being recorded. I do think some states require all parties to be informed though. That's why when you call a call center they often tell you this conversation may be recorded, at the start.

I could care less about recording peoples in game voices, and I would just mute all players. I'd be interested in recording and/or streaming exclusively for educational purposes in order to show the developers and lower tier players how to play and what flaws the game has.

I'd like to offer some analysis and commentary on some matches, also, which would be (100%) for educational purposes ONLY and nothing else.

If it was illegal, I would think each and every one of those videos would have been pulled by YouTube.
