I can’t post this in a new thread because I don’t have the 50 post count yet, so if somebody would like to copy paste this post in a new thread I will edit my post out in here (so not to derail the thread for too long).
I do not mean to derail this thread in any shape or form (thanks Sabin for all the info you’ve dished out over the last few weeks!), but apparently after the Nagoya Street Battle tourney they held a Daigo Umehara challenge against Nagoya grandmasters (I don’t know if all of them were repping Nagoya though).
These matches were some of the most intense, eye-popping and epic fights I’ve ever seen! There were an INSANE amount of clutch moments and a good dose of total RAPE rounds as well. The overall skill level displayed was amazing! It was one of the most enjoyable challenge sequences I’ve seen in a while (in my opinion better than the Arcadia Umehara Kumites). I think there was a Perfect round in nearly every set, which is hilarious since EVERY player (except 1) in this challenge is a grandmaster!
The matches were either best of 5 or 7, depending on the player. The match list is as follows:
Umehara vs. Kindevu (Rufus)
Umehara vs. Maeda Taison (Boxer)
Umehara vs. Gama no Abura (Dictator) <-- Umehara GA guy!
Umehara vs. Eita (Akuma)
Umehara vs. Rikuson (Sagat)
Umehara vs. Pie (Sagat)
Umehara vs. Momochi (Ryu)
