Guinness World Records is honoring BST|Daigo Umehara once again, this time with two awards: one for holding the highest overall rank in Ultra Street Fighter IV–as based on his Lifetime Score of 2187714 in SRK’s own USF4 rankings–and another for the most-viewed video game match: naturally the famous “Evo Moment #37” from 2004.

In addition to his prior Guinness World Record from 2010 for highest pro-gaming earnings, this gives Umehara a “Triple Crown” of World Records to be proud of.
You can watch a bit of the award ceremony (in Japanese) on Twitch here. Shoryuken.com extends our congratulations to The Beast. おめでとうございます!
