It looks like one of the best Chun-Li players in the United States is going to officially get a chance to prove it. Mike “BrolyLegs” Begum, a top online and tournament player from Texas, has received a sponsorship deal from AbleGamers.

Begum is not only notorious for having a strong Chun-Li in both Street Fighter IV and Street Fighter V, but has done so with a major disability that gives him limited usage of his arms and legs. In order to compensate for his disability, he plays on a controller and uses his mouth to play along with various key bindings that act as slight option selects for the normal moves he wants to do.

This sponsorship with AbleGamers is an amazing deal for him, as the group itself is a charity focused on bettering people with disabilities through video games. Begum has notoriously had travel issues due to his disability, requiring a specialized van for travel and someone to drive it. These limitations have seen him focus his competitive efforts within his native Texas and at Evo, with the rest of his competitive play being online. This sponsorship will surely give him the opportunity to travel more and show the world what he is capable of.
