Whenever we think of Liquid|NuckleDu, we tend to think of his awesome play with Guile in Street Fighter 5 and his tendency to teabag opponents whenever he dominates. The Eleague's player profile video showcases a very different aspect of his life.


It is here that we find out about how difficult NuckleDu has had it. He and his family relied a lot on food stamps, for example.

His success in the Street Fighter 5 tournament scene, especially thanks to his Capcom Pro Tour win, caused very positive changes to his life. He went from having T.V. dinners three times a day to going out whenever he wants to nice restaurants with desert.

Of course, he also speaks about the mental aspect of what teabagging does to his opponent's composure. Despite some believing that NuckleDu's motivations for competing are purely monetary, you can still tell he has a passion for eSports.

Even though NuckleDu has already been eliminated from the Eleague competition, we still wanted to highlight his inspirational story.
