A recent tweet by Razer’s Latif revealed that Jakob “Happy Medicine” Davis, who qualified for the Street Fighter 25th Anniversary grand finals with a second place finish in Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition ver. 2012 at the Austin qualifier, will not be able to attend the event this weekend due to illness.
Happy medicine is not going to attend SF25th anniversary tournament due to being sick! That sucks and I hope he gets better.

Capcom’s Haunts followed up soon after, revealing that the fourth place finisher at the same event (Ari “Floe” Weintraub of Evil Geniuses) will be taking his spot, as Joshua “Wolfkrone” Philpot in third qualified later at the New York City tournament.

For those of you worried about how this will affect our new SRK Fantasy League competition, have no fear. While the name will not be changed, Floe will be taking up the exact same spot Happy Medicine originally occupied, placing him against Mad Catz’ Daigo in the first round. Make sure to apply any changes you deem necessary with this new bit of information.
Floe has officially replaced Happy Medicine in SF4, but we are not changing the name in the bracket.DON’T change the name in yours pls.
