PREMIER EVENT: VSFighting 2018 Results
VSFighting 2018, held in Birmingham, England from July 20th through 22nd, is in the books and Japan's Daigo "The Beast" Umehara has taken 1st place! This is Daigo's first win of the season but has done well so far this season, having earned 2nd place at NorCal Regionals and 4th place at Stunfest among other placements previously. Daigo may have had enough points to earn a spot at Capcom Cup 2018 before this point, but victory here at VSFighting makes it a certainty. He defeated FUDOH|Fujimura in Grand Finals 3-2.
FUDOH|Fujimura, also from Japan, earned 2nd place and is having an absolutely remarkable 2018 season. Prior to VSFighting some of his placements include not one but two 1st place finishes at Premier Events (CEO and Stunfest) and a win at the Fighter's Spirit Ranking Event. Fujimura made it all the way to Winner's Finals in the Winner's Bracket before losing to Daigo 1-3. Fujimura's only losses at VSFighting both came at the hands of Daigo, once in Winner's Finals and finally at Grand Finals.
Korea's UYU|NL took 3rd place after making it to top 8 in the Winner's Bracket. He was defeated by Fujimura in Winner's Semi-Finals 1-3. In the Loser's Bracket he went on to eliminate Europe's last remaining player, FNATIC|Shakz from the UK, as well as USA's ECHO FOX|Justin Wong before finally being eliminated himself by Fujimura in Loser's Finals 1-3.
