Liquid|NuckleDu is the Capcom Cup 2016 Champion and is the first Capcom Cup Champion for Street Fighter 5. He is a truly exceptional talent and as of the end of 2016 is widely regarded as the best Street Fighter 5 player in the world.

Earlier Career

Liquid|NuckleDu started playing and competing in Street Fighter 4 at a young age. He made a name for himself by playing a more aggressive Guile, which was different than the more defensive playstyle that most were used to seeing. During the Street Fighter 4 era he did very well for himself, earning a spot at Capcom Cup 2014 where he took 9th place. He was known for his Guile play but in 2014 he started using secondary characters such as Cammy and Sakura in a few events with limited success. In 2015 he reached a new level and part of that was due to his adding Decapre to his arsenal of characters. It was the combination of Guile and Decapre (although he did use a few other characters sparingly, like Akuma) that made him a force to be reckoned with. In 2015 he placed 7th at Evolution and once again earned a spot at Capcom Cup where he finished 13th. By the end of 2015 and the close of the Street Fighter 4 era he was widely considered to be one of the best players in the United States. However, NuckleDu did not want to settle for being the best of a region. His stated goal was to be the best in the world.

Liquid|NuckleDu was widely considered one of the best players in the United States by the end of 2015 but in 2016 there were a lot of question marks due to the release of Street Fighter 5. NuckleDu initially adopted Nash as his main character and did very well, taking 9th place at Final Round 19 and 5th Place at NorCal Regionals 2016. Around April of that year he began to use R.Mika as a character and later that year added Guile, who was released as DLC for the game. The combination of Guile and R.Mika, along with his exceptional talent as a player, proved a potent combination and in the month or two prior to Capcom Cup 2016 he was regularly winning tournaments. He would qualify once again for Capcom Cup and would go on to take first place to become the first Capcom Cup Champion for Street Fighter 5.
