a lot of ryu players like to mix up using a lot of kara throws, which is fine, but when you’re facing someone who can ruin you with one back throw or random headbutt it’s not smart. Dial down the throw game a bit. when he’s in the corner, obviously you should be extremely careful. instead of doing something like close standing mk, ex spin kick. just do ex spin kick, so even if urien parries right its hard for him to do anything serious to you.
uh in footsies, can punish his s.fp, f.fp, d.rh on reaction with correct spacing with your own d.rh. on block you can punish his d+fp, any shoulder and knee drops with d+fwd, short hurricane kick. they always hit uriens tall frame even if he’s ducking, but only the short version.
know how to parry his fireballs, especially air version. if you’re not comfortable parrying then don’t even bother jumping too much. also, if you kinda expect an air fireball, you can ex sidekick him for some damage.
don’t jump at him if he has a charge, he can mix you up with d+fp or a head butt of some sort, just not worth the risk. without a charge he’s easy to jump at. After a blocked sweep if he has his charge he can ex. Shoulder you.
after a whiffed headbutt, be prepared to throw break.
ALWAYS tech roll any type of knockdown. i m sure there’s instances where its not in your best interests to tech but those occasions are few.
Vs. his wake up you dont really wanna throw tech, at ALL. I cant honestly see why you should ever throw tech this guy on wake up, the punishment of a d+fp to your death is too much. And dont DP either, same reason. Urien is going to do 4 things on wake up, fp of some sort, d+rh, throw, throw bait to d+fp. My suggestion would be to either guess parry or jump/dash back. Theres no real consequence to parrying wrong against urien, you wont eat a big combo just a throw or a single solid hit. Reward is high for you though. Jump (with a parry) instead to avoid throws, safer imo. If you guess wrong its not a big deal just like if you guess parry wrong. The only thing he can really do is a meaty d+fp, which is pretty risky for him. Anyway, hope that helps.
