A burst from the past: Daigo Umehara not only competed in Guilty Gear XX at EVO 2003, but won 1st place - check out the rare footage here

MCZ|Daigo Umehara is most widely renowned for his incredible skill / accomplishments in Street Fighter. From SF2 to SF4, it is no secret that Umehara is one of the greatest fighting game legends to ever roam the earth.

Many of our readers (including myself) didn't find out about Daigo's rise to fame until the Street Fighter 4 era. But before he was under the Mad Catz wing, before he wrote his own book, Daigo was also tearing through the competition in games that weren't Capcom related.

Today we stumbled across some rare footage, (courtesy of Beast Note), that features Daigo taking part in the Guilty Gear XX tournament at EVO 2003. Not only did Daigo compete that year, but the Beast actually went on to take home the gold.

To clarify, this may be old news to Guilty Gear and FGC veterans, but coming across a gem like this that we were previously unaware of is something we just have to share with our readers. Hit the jump to check out three videos of Daigo in action, along with the EVO 2003 Guilty Gear XX grand finals set.
