The competitor most known for his victory as the Street Fighter 5 Capcom Cup 2016 champion, NuckleDu, has now been sponsored by Echo Fox. His last sponsor before this was Ghost Gaming.

"NuckleDu is a young player who has proven himself to be one of the best in the world," said Jared Jeffries, president of Echo Fox. "His dedication to improvement, his sense of dramatic flair, and his desire to compete at the highest level make him a perfect fit for Echo Fox."

Roughly two weeks ago, it had been reported that Tokido, another Street Fighter 5 competitor, had parted ways with Team Echo Fox. Earlier, Justin Wong announced his departure from the team after Momochi, REC|Punk, JDCR, Scar, Saint, Choco Blanka and Theo also made the announcement of leaving

Many were starting to believe that this was forecasting troubles for Echo Fox since they were dropping top tier talent within the fighting game community. Evidently, there is still beating life at the team.

NuckleDu is joining FOX|MKLeo, FOX|Dekillsage, FOX|Mew2King and FOX|SonicFox as part of Echo Fox's roster. Notably, this means that NuckleDu is Echo Fox's only Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition player.

Throughout the years, NuckleDu has found a lot of success with R. Mika and Guile in Street Fighter 5. With this sponsorship, it likely means that we'll be seeing more of NuckleDu at major events.
