Daigo and Tokido play one of the best Street Fighter 5 sets I've seen all year

Two legends clash in a first-to-five set with an unbelievable conclusion

There are times in fighting games where we witness a set of matches so amazing, we just can't look away. The second it's over, it makes us want to drop everything we're doing, fire up the game, and play some matches of our own. This is one of those sets.

Unfortunately for me, I can't drop everything and play Street Fighter 5. However, I can write about this magnificent bout between CYG|Daigo Umehara and FOX|Tokido.

XusesGB uploaded the finale of a series of first-to-five online sets between the two legendary competitors. This third and final video truly delivers.

The level of play here is outstanding, with both players having a great understanding of the other's tendencies. Things like perfect fireball punishes from both sides show just how long these two have been competing against each other.

Of course, there are devastating combos and set ups here, with no shortage of intense and hype moments to behold.

I don't want to spoil anything, but just be sure to stay until the very end of the set. The conclusion is truly spectacular.
