Daigo Umehara makes his first American appearance in Capcom Pro Tour 20160 Comments
In the FGC, there are many professional players who have carved their name in the annals of history. But if there’s one name that’s the most legendary and renowned of all, it’s Daigo “The Beast” Umehara. Well, it looks like he’s making history for himself yet again with his first American Street Fighter V appearance by attending this year’s Capcom Pro Tour. His first official stop will be the Community Effort Orlando (CEO) tournament, which will take place this summer from June 24 to June 26. This is a big deal, considering his absence from all of the recent events on the tour.
One can only hope Umehara’s ready, because this year’s pool will be filled with quality competition, most notably Infiltration, who has been white-hot lately. Personally, I would love to see a “winner take all” match between the two powerhouses. Who knows what characters they will use at CEO, but my bet is Daigo’s Ryu/Alex vs Infiltration’s Nash. The hype is certainly real, and I can’t wait to see who comes out on top.
