As surely as moon following sun, Daigo Umehara, has won the Evo 2010 Super Street Fighter IV championship in Las Vegas.

The SF legend beat EG Ricky Ortiz 3-1 in the tournament’s final. Inflitration, Mike Ross and “Vangief” came third, fourth and fifth.

The 29 year-old champion also won the competition last year, beating Justin Wong’s M. Bison.

Daigo is most famous for his comeback against Wong’s Chun-Li in 2004, in which he did some mad parry action on his last pixel of health.
