Tokido Battles Back Through Loser's Bracket To Win Evo Street Fighter V Championship

GIF Two titans of Street Fighter V clashed in Mandalay Bay, one on an undefeated streak and the other pressing on through the gauntlet of the loser’s bracket.
After a bracket reset, longtime Street Fighter pro Tokido beat Punk 3-0 to take home the Evo 2017 championship trophy. Victor “Punk” Woodley came into the top eight finals from the winner’s side, on a legendary tear through the Street Fighter V tournament. Woodley had dropped Hajime “Tokido” Taniguchi into the loser’s side of the bracket, where he played through some of Street Fighter’s toughest to earn a second shot at The Alpha.

Each dash and throw was carefully calculated, as Taniguchi worked towards a bracket reset and Woodley was hard-pressed to maintain his lead. The tension built up to a game 4 where both played a tense game of footsies on slivers of health. One misstep from Woodley into a fireball ended the round, and Taniguchi reset the bracket, starting up a fresh first-to-three and either player’s tournament to win.
