Rashid's 50/50 in this clip makes us think he'd belong more in Marvel vs. Capcom rather than Street Fighter 5

This mixup will have you SHOOK

We know Rashid is one of the best characters in Street Fighter 5. His ability to pressure and force you to the corner is top notch.

Here we see a Rashid using that patented pressure on a Sagat player. Once he has him cornered we see an absolute filthy mixup.

We saw at CEO 2019 the #WhensMarvel movement during the top eight. This Grandmaster Sagat player Densetsu, was given a reminder of what Marvel vs. Capcom looks like with that mixup.

Sagat is typically a zone type combatant, with the ability to throw low and high fireballs. The Rashid got past his zoning and landed the crazy 50/50, causing Densetsu to joke about MvC.

SF5 favors rushdown fighters more so than zone heavy ones, so keeping out a character like Rashid can be very difficult for a Sagat. Because of this, Rashid's ability to put opponents in the mixer is very strong.

Watch the clip below, and let us know what you think of it in the comments.
