If you missed ESL’s inaugural Street Fighter V event–Brooklyn Beatdown–then you missed an insanely good Grand Finals. While it again featured two of the top ten players in the world right now, it did not include usual faces such as Tokido or Razer’s Infiltration–who may have been the favorite going in.

On the contrary, we found an epic set between Evil Geniuses’ Yusuke Momochi and Qanba’s Zhuojun “Xiaohai” Zeng, and it could not have been more exciting. With bracket resets, amazing tech, and even ten seconds of fighting for spacing without pushing a single button, you have one incredibly tense match between the Japanese Ken player most known for his Capcom Cup and Evolution championships, and the Chinese Cammy phenom well-known for winning King of Fighters XIII at Evolution 2014.
