Kumite in Tennessee 2020 is one of the tournaments that's been happening over the weekend. Although Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition isn't the highlight of the tournament, its presence does give us an opportunity to analyze how the early Season 5 meta is developing through character usage stats.

Notable players included Neon, BDG|Teiga, BxA|Squall, DRD|Magnegro, and TS|Arturo Sanchez. As this is a smaller tournament, we'll only be looking at the top 16 stats. As always, do feel free to draw comparisons to our community voted tiers section.

M. Bison ended up being the most popular pick this time around. In total, there were four players that used M. Bison as their primary character. This was more than double than the second most chosen combatant.

After M. Bison came Rashid's popularity. He was selected as a main by two different competitors.

Dhalsim and Necalli also saw a decent amount of usage within the top 16. Both fighters were used as a main and as a secondary.

15 different characters were used in the top 16. Do keep in mind, however, that Birdie, Zeku, and Kage only saw usage as secondary choices.
