Evo 2011: The Beast is beaten

A new World Champion enters the ring.

There is a new Street Fighter world champion: Japanese player Fuudo.

At the Evo fighting game tournament in Las Vegas, Fuudo, using Fei Long, defeated US player Latif, using Crimson Viper, 3-0 in the grand final.

Tournament favourite and 2010 world champion Daigo "the Beast" Umehara finished fourth. Poongko, using Seth, defeated Daigo in a top eight bracket match.

Daigo recently switched main character, from Ryu to Yun, following the release of Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition.

Elsewhere, the Marvel vs. Capcom 3 tournament saw an upset as tournament favourite Justin Wong managed only third.

PR Balrog sent US player Wong home, using Dante, Wolverine and Tron Bonne to defeat Wong's Wolverine/Akuma teams.

But it was Viscant, using Wesker, Haggar and Phoenix, who went all the way, defeating PR Balrog 3-0 in the final.
