He's done it now. Hugo player Antwan "CORN|Alucard" Ortiz has managed to defeat the legend himself, MCZ|Daigo "The Beast" Umehara, in a first-to-3 set at Final Round 18 which is happening right now in Atlanta.

Now before you get too excited, though, no, this doesn't mean that MCZ|Daigo didn't make it out of his pools or anything; the match that Ortiz won was just in casuals.

Still, MCZ|Daigo is such a dominating player that even in casuals he rarely loses. So let's not take away Ortiz's accomplishment here -- even if it's in casuals, a win is a win. Besides, Ortiz managed to do it with Hugo, widely regarded as a low-tier character, and a character that Daigo himself has previously tried to learn, but thought too weak to be viable in a competitive setting.

And thanks to Destin Williams on YouTube, who brings us this shakycam footage of MCZ|Daigo vs. Antwan "CORN|Alucard" Ortiz at Final Round 18. you can see for yourself how the match went. Check out the video below.
