Smug NuckleDu

PIE|Smug and Liquid|NuckleDu have quite the rivalry brewing on this year’s tournament circuit. After NuckleDu’s declaration that Next Level Battle Circuit is free (after defeating Smug at Final Round 20), Smug had even more than personal pride and victory at stake in going to South by Southwest’s Fighters Underground tournament: he wanted the 2016 Capcom Cup champion to eat his words.

And Smug made sure to cook up those words and serve them hot to NuckleDu in the Grand Finals. While it looked like NuckleDu–who was in the losers bracket–would reset the bracket, Smug quickly adjusted to take the win. The replay below is well worth the watch.
