Maybe yall already know but I dunno just wondering.
I like to find the origin of a character or why they decided to put so n so in a game. Like a while back I made a thread about Hugo being drunk and thats why he fights so clumsy and somebody confirmed my thought with a huge article about Andre the Giant drinking all the time.
So…I think they may have got the idea of Abel from the UFC fighter Fedore Emeliakano from Russia but he fight in areas like FRANCE and different parts of Europe. I mean he kind of looks like him too with the hair line and all. Fedore is quite beastly too if u ever seen any of his matches hes so well rounded. His stand up game is real similar to Abels barage of punches that usually end in a grab much like Fedores style.
If yall can look into it more I’d appreciate it.
