Options against makoto axe kick?

been playing against some makotos and noticed that her axe kick is really good against sagat, uppercut trades but knocks sagat down no ultra followup, and normal anti airs are beaten clean.

what can sagat do against it? ex uppercut looks like the only option.

I would just be blocking to be honest, if that hits full she can run all kinds of shit and next minute your stunned. She has a shitty wake up , a floaty jump and has to spend meter to get in on you. I would just Zone until she gets close then pray you don’t get knocked down! Also most of her grabs have no invincibility so you can smash on the lk. A bit of a monster now, def have to take her seriously.

hard kick should do

Tiger Uppercut!
