Nemo gets 3-0'd in Topanga by Dudley, Mike Ross' sick option select U2 clobbers Mago, and more - EventHubs' top 3 USF4 pro plays

Wake up! It's the first of the month, and last month there were many, many amazing events that took place here in the fighting game community.

From Topanga B League to Thaiger Uppercut, West Coast Warzone to Tokyo Game Show; over the past 30 days we have experienced a slew of incredible matches, hype moments, upsets, and surprises. There was so much to be seen in September, and there is no doubt in our minds that some of these stellar pro plays slipped through the cracks and went unnoticed.

Tonight, we here at EventHubs want to bring you three of our favorite Ultra Street Fighter 4 moments from September. This top 3 list features fan favorites such as Mike Ross, BE|Nemo, pH|Hoodaman, Snake Eyez, and more.

Check out which three pro plays we selected as our top 3 after the jump.

Poison's corner fireball loop deals 562 damage without Ultra, reversals lose to HP fireball after reset - USF4 tech for Hugo's sassy manager

Looking to improve your Poison game in Ultra Street Fighter 4? Well, today is your lucky day.

FGA|Mono recently sent us a compilation of useful tech that every Poison player should take the time to practice and add to their arsenal. The video is jam-packed with over 7 minutes of different combos, resets, mix-ups, and more.

Right at the start of the video, we get to see an EX fireball loop used on Rufus in the corner that deals 562 damage without the use of Ultra. The loop can be replicated after landing an overhead for 428 damage, making this a great way to put the hurt on your opponent after hitting them with a quick strike.

Additionally, this video shows a myriad of ways to make opponents' reversal attacks null after clobbering them with an EX Rekka reset. In one scenario, Poison throws a HP fireball after a reset on Cody, to which he attempts an Ultra 2. Even though she gets hit by the first part of the Ultra (the dust), Poison's HP fireball manages to catch Cody anyway, hitting him out of the big-damage comeback move.

There is much to be learned in this compilation, so be sure to check out this excellent Ultra Street Fighter 4 Poison tech after the break.

Daigo on the 2 opponents he'd least like to face at Capcom Cup 2014, if he qualifies (1 of them is the EVO champ) - EventHubs interviews The Beast

During the Tokyo Game Show weekend, we met and caught up with MCZ|Daigo right after the Mad Catz TGS Ultra Street Fighter 4 tournament concluded.

There wasn't a whole lot of time to talk, but we got to ask Daigo about why these days he's dashing in on his opponent after a knockdown a lot more often (as opposed to going for a safe jump setup), what he thinks about CCG|Air's assessment of Evil Ryu's bad match-ups, afterthoughts on his exhibition match against BE|Nemo, as well as who he'd least like to face at Capcom Cup 2014, should he manages to qualify -- which he stands a good chance at.

Check out our interview with Daigo 'The Beast' Umehara below.

Xian's Poison brings the hype against GamerBee in the Saigon Cup's FT5 Grand Finals set, don't miss this incredible long set between masters

At first, this set looks like a match from the RZR|Xian we're used to seeing, where he uses his signature character Gen, who he won EVO 2013 with, but before long, he decides to change his strategy up against AvM|GamerBee, and goes over to his new flame, Poison.

While RZR|Xian has definitely played Poison publicly before, this is a really good set to show what the character is capable of, as he goes up against AvM|GamerBee, one of the world's best, who is using his main character Adon, and making one hell of a match out of it.

At Saigon Cup, the Grand Finals were played as a FT5 set, with RZR|Xian on the winner's side, and AvM|GamerBee on the loser's side. Hit the jump to check out the action.

Sako reacts to point-blank fireball with Super, shows more lethal corner mix-ups - Elena looks even more devastating in these USF4 Endless matches

A set of Ultra Street Fighter 4 Endless matches featuring HORI|Sako and a Chun-Li player named Coijro recently made their way on to the internet.

If you're an aspiring Elena player, or just a fan of Sako's play-style, then you're in luck. This compilation of matches does a great job of showing what the Capoeira master is capable of.

Not only will you witness a series of devastating corner mix-ups that can prove useful in any Elena player's arsenal, but there are other hype moments to be seen here, such as the point-blank punish of fireball using Super.

Cojiro also pulls off a number of useful anti-Elena techniques, like punishing blocked Lynx Tail with Ultra 1.

Below you will find both the original Nico upload and a YouTube version for those who may have trouble viewing the former.

How do you beat Snake Eyez? Baby steps and fireballs, Velociraptor teams up with Cross Counter to create a quick Gouken tutorial

Alex Myers and Cross Counter were kind enough to invite me onto their show to talk about my approach to playing Gouken. From fundamentals to utilizing the old man's new buffs in Ultra, I take a quick ten minutes to discuss some of my favorite strategies with him.

It's important to know how to approach your character and what they can do in certain situations. Whether you're just starting out with Gouken or you've been frustrating people with myriads of "spadoukens" since Vanilla, this guide will likely have something for you to add to your game play.

Hugo's Super completely whiffs on Rose, Cammy, and Chun-Li when confirming from Clap - Ultra Street Fighter 4

Earlier today we were sent a quick Ultra Street Fighter 4 clip that shows off a peculiar occurrence when Hugo tries to confirm his Super after his Clap.

When Hugo goes for his Super on a crouching Rose, Chun-Li, or Cammy, the first hit of the attack is subject to whiffing completely.

For Rose, if Hugo hits any version of his Clap and cancels into Super, she will fall out of the combo. For Cammy and Chun, however, this only happens when Hugo confirms from LP Clap.

The Super will still connect fully if you hit a light punch or light kick before cancelling, but that deals a bit less damage. Still, any Hugo player out there should be very careful when confirming into this attack, as it may leave you open for a big punish and may even cost you the game.

You can check out the clip below.

USF4 video roundup: Daigo Evil Ryu hype moments, Bonchan vs. Kazunoko ft-to-10, Olympic Gaming's Angry Andoryou (Oni/Cammy) player spotlight

There's been quite a few noteworthy video submissions sent in to us over the weekend.

In an attempt to get more fighting game vid makers' efforts recognized, we're going to do a quick Ultra Street Fighter 4 round-up this time.

First up is an MCZ|Daigo Evil Ryu hype moments compilation from the Rush N Kill (RnK) clan. The video contains many of the memorable moments during Daig's recent encounters with AVM|Gamerbee, EG|Momochi, EG|Justin Wong, among others.

It also shows us just exactly how much The Beast loves to abuse Evil Ryu's far standing MK move.

Weird tech: Juri's ground fireball can be punished by aerial grab UCs (Hakan, Zangief, T. Hawk, Hugo) in Ultra Street Fighter 4

Weird but true: Although Juri's Fuhajin fireball release is, for all intents and purposes, a ground-based projectile attack (as opposed to Akuma, Rolento and Ibuki's aerial projectile moves), for a couple of frames during the MK and HK versions of the move, she's actually considered airborne -- and can be punished with aerial grabs accordingly.

So for instance, after blocking the first part of Juri's MK or HK Fuhajin, Hakan can begin buffering the motion for his anti-air Ultra Combo 2 move, and hit the three kick buttons if he sees Juri follow-up with the projectile release part of the move to punish it during the airborne frames.

T. Hawk and Hugo can even punish that move from a distance, as their aerial grab specials and Ultras travel a good distance forward on the way up, as you'll see in EventHubs user TheFlyingGrayson's video below.

Nemo: 'Justin Wong is the one player I respect on a whole other level than the rest' - the accomplished UMvC3 & USF4 player explains why

BE|Nemo is one of the most respected fighting game players today. A great deal of players in the FGC look up to him.

And a whole lot more paid attention to him after his recent win at West Coast Warzone 4 with Rolento, his very narrow defeat at the hands of Filipino Champ in a UMvC3 first-to-20 at the same tournament venue, as well as convincingly beating MCZ|Daigo in a first-to-5 exhibition match last weekend at Mad Catz's Tokyo Game Show event.

MCZ|Daigo, of course, also gave huge props to BE|Nemo in his recent Reddit AMA interview.

But even the most respected people in the world must have people that they look up to.

In BE|Nemo's case, there's actually a humongous list of such people he respects, but only one particular person he looks up to on a completely different level from the rest -- Evil Geniuses's Justin Wong.
