Strider's main weakness seemed to be from his inability to block ambiguous cross-ups. Hope he can work on it for evo because other than that his Abel was the best I've ever seen; especially his anti-air game. Congrats to Kaz though.
Everybody it's rooting for him cause he's the underdog. But by his acting (Not just at CEO) I can predict he's such a douch and big headed guy.
If he starts to place top places regular I'm pretty sure people will start to hate him (If he doesn't change his behaviour)
Any way, congrats to Kaz. Another japanese winning at the states ranking event.
