It's been a crazy day of upsets over at Day 1 of EVO 2014 (full results here), what with two former world champions for Street Fighter 4, MCZ|Daigo and Infiltration, getting sent out of the tournament before even the Top 16 play-offs.

And to top it off, the players who sent them packing were specialists for characters that both MCZ|Daigo and Infiltration were known for -- John Choi (Ryu) and Eita (Akuma).

Unfortunately, both matches were played off-stream, so those of us who weren't physically at the EVO tournament grounds were able to watch John Choi and Eita's triumphant moments live as they happened.

But all is not lost; thanks to the valiant efforts of a few FGC members on the scene -- Team Spooky and BornFreeYT -- who captured off-screen footage of the matches in progress, there is video.

Check out the EVO USF4 off-screen videos for MCZ|Daigo (Evil Ryu) vs. John Choi (Ryu), and Infiltration (Akuma) vs. Eita (Akuma) below.
