One Of The Best ‘Street Fighter V’ Tournament Wins You’ll Ever See

Posted by March 7, 2017 Comment

Have you ever been beaten down to near death in a fighter only to somehow make a miraculous recovery and trounce your opponent into stunned silence? Those kinds of mini miracles don’t happen often, but when they do, they need to be cherished. Which makes this matchup at Cen-Cal Standoff all the more special.


Christopher “NYChrisG” Gonzalez is already an established fighter in multiple games, especially in Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and he’s really hitting his stride in Street Fighter V. His day at the event was already looking splendid as he rolled into his match with Brian “bjUNCHAINED” Jeon. Gonzalez was basically set up to win hands down, especially since Jeon already fell to him early on and needed a major comeback with straight wins to overtake the tournament. The two fought all the way to the end, with Gonzalez dominating early but Jeon coming back from near elimination. The final bout put Jeon using Guile and Gonzalez using Necalli. The game looked like it was over as Jeon was down to a pixel of health on the screen, but what followed has to be one of the best SFV comeback matches of all time. Just watch…

Coming out alive when you’re basically halfway in the shark’s mouth is a thing of beauty, and should be celebrated when you can claim a tournament win like this one.
