The second day of the ONE Martial Arts Fan Fest event kicked off with a Street Fighter 2 Turbo: Hyper Fighting exhibition showcase with all the invited professional players of the ONE Street Fighter Tokyo Invitational 3v3 tournament.
Chinese fighting game legend, Zeng “Xiao Hai” Zhuojun, who dominated the competition with his Sagat, emerged victorious.
Xiao Hai made quick work of his opponents, easily defeating Kung “Verloren” Hyung-suk in a Sagat vs Sagat mirror match in the first round.
He then destroyed Arubi “RB” Kao’s Zangief in the quarterfinals, with a brutal fireball zoning game that prevented RB from even getting close to him.
In the semifinals, he faced off against Jonny Lai “HumanBomb” Cheng’s Ryu, almost getting a perfect in the first game, and then easily taking the second game.
In the grand finals, Xiao Hai faced off against Sim “NL” Gun’s Ryu. Xiao Hai continued his dominance, and made good use of Sagat’s high damage output, winning the first set by landing a staggering Tiger Uppercut, which erased NL’s health bar.
Xiao Hai’s fireball game was also on point and NL had a very difficult time closing the distance and was left stuck in the corner.
NL tried to retaliate with his Tatsumaki strategy, but Xiao Hai was one step ahead and closed out the tournament with a well-timed Tiger Uppercut.
