Here's Bonchan's very first Ranked match with Sagat in Street Fighter 5... along with a full compilation's worth more

They're back

Sagat was represented by more than a few top level players back in the days of Street Fighter 4, but none were as celebrated or successful as RB|Bonchan.

Bonchan had a mastery of the King unlike any other competitor, and as such his performances were unique as they brought about a certain discernible connection between player and character.

In the Japanese players' hands Sagat's weaknesses seem minimized while his strengths seemed even more powerful. The spectacle of watching this duo was surely one to behold, and it looks like we're getting yet another viewing.

The King of Muay Thai is finally back for a run in Street Fighter 5 and unless we miss our prediction that he'll be amongst the stronger competitors on the roster, the days of Bonchan Nash very well could be over.

Sagat has been available for about a day now and already Bonchan has begun laying the foundations for what looks to be a promising competitive run. He's taken Sagat online for some live action and thanks to The Beast we have a compilation video.

You'll catch the full compilation after the jump, but thanks to HiFight you can view Bonchan's very first online Ranked bout with the original Street Fighter boss by clicking the thumbnail right here:
