EMP|Sanford Kelly (Sagat) vs. PIE|Smug (Dudley) AE 2012 Concept Match Footage

By on September 10, 2013 at 2:45 pm

While attending a recent Team PIE session, Team Spooky’s Arturo Sanchez captured footage of a very entertaining Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition ver. 2012 concept match between Sanford Kelly of Empire Arcadia and PIE’s own Smug. Though Kelly is without a doubt one of the best Sagats in the world, Smug’s Dudley is a lesser-known commodity that has the potential to throw a wrench in even the strongest player’s plans.

Sanchez personally believes Smug is in the upper echelon of Dudley players, but was he able to stand up to the King himself? Be sure to check the video below and find out for yourself. As this was recorded during a house session, the salt and hype are generally unrestrained and sometimes NSFW. You have been warned.

    Unrestrained hype indeed… Holy shit.

    Nice to see a Sagat vs. Dudley match; with this kind of match-up, I could only think of Muay Thai vs Boxing. Captured the excitement of wondering who’s the better fighter marvellously.


    Screw EventHubs. From now on I am coming here for FGC news. Plus Discuss is awesome.

      Is this about that obnoxious adblock detected popover?
      Just install noscript and forbid scripts from eventhubs(dot)com

      • NickM777

        or just don’t support a website that would do something like that.

        • WAZEER

          Yeah I haven’t seen any other website that does this. They are forcing us to pay or to allow their ridiculous ads that take half the screen. Seriously, screw them!

          • Inan

            Can someone explain to me why some people find it to be so difficult to disable AdBlock on EventHubs?

          • Mash Harder

            It’s not a matter of difficulty, it’s a matter of user experience.

      • WAZEER


      • Jason Slade

        Or just disable ad-block.

          • Vilmos Magyar

            yeah I mean the 3 bearly noticable ads they have per page is basically the end of all life as we know it. I actually have no fucking idea what SRK lives off of.

    • xanderglz

      While SRK has this footage of The President playing the king, Escrubs shows a FT3 with two of his admins using pocket characters. Too much ego boosting imo.

      Sanford vs Smug all day.

        1-This is the same news that people were commenting on in eventhubs about the “no adblock” banner, so i don’t know why you’re complaining when it’s alread there.
        2-the admin fight was 4 days ago, so why are you using “while”?
        3-neither were using pocket characters; only mains.

        you might wanna fact check next time.

  • D Major

    INB4 complaints about Sanford Kelly getting angry about someone talking crap about him (within earshot) while he’s trying to play. [sarcasm]The nerve of him.[/sarcasm]

  • pootnannies

    damn that dudley player is no joke

  • Manup21

    This fight was simply beautiful.. from start to finish. Like someone else had stated.. it was basically captured the moment of who would be the better fighter. At first I thought Sanford had it, then smug, etc.

    These 2 went at it like straight savages lol. Good fight 🙂
