The Evo 2016 Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 finals recently drew to a close, and Christopher “NYChrisG” Gonzalez walked away the victor. His opponent, last year’s champion Nicolas “Kane Blueriver” Gonzalez, came in looking strong, fighting his way through the bracket on the winners side. Another victory for KBR wouldn’t have come as a shock, but ChrisG had different plans.

As expected, the mastermind behind Morridoom battered Blueriver with walls of projectiles; something he’s no stranger to dealing with, but today the plasma-based pressure was too much for the champ to handle and many rounds concluded with a lone Haggar attempting to wade through a flurry of Soul Fists to no avail.
