Evolution 2009 is over!

Interview with Daigo "The Beast" Umehara at EVO 2009

Probably the most hyped match in the history of Street Fighter, Umehara Daigo (aka The Beast) defeated Justin "Marvelous" Wong in a night that few will forget!  The crowd was in a frenzy during that rollercoaster of a final, chanting "USA! USA!" whenever the home favorite came close to shutting down the heavy favorite from Japan. 

Justin Wong was the only person able to send Umehara Daigo to the losers bracket in the entire tournament, a feat that only one other player was able to accomplish.  Truly great stuff.

Since Street Fighter 4 had over 1000 entrants, the grand prize was a whopping $7000 dollars.  Not bad for a weekend!
