drekerrr‘s latest video shows off some interesting uses for Zangief’s Ultra 2 in Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition ver. 2012. Specifically, it shows how to use it to counter several grounded moves that technically count as airborne. The list of moves that Ultra 2 works against is as follows:

M. Bison – Psycho Crusher
Juri – Super Combo, EX Pinwheel (works on normal version)
E. Honda – Ultra 1
Hakan – Oil Rocket
T. Hawk – Condor Spire
Evil Ryu – Forward Medium Kick
Ibuki – Forward Medium Kick
Gouken – close st.HP xx Demon Flip
Rose – Soul Throw (anti-anti air?)
