F.A.N.G remains one of the least-utilized characters in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition with only around .7 percent of players using him online though once you come across a strong one, you know how deadly they can be even if his poison itself is not.

One of the best F.A.N.G players in the world in RR|Mono recently broke down his thoughts on his favorite fighter's match ups in Season 5 with many of them being quite a bit more favorable than would be initially expected.

The Puerto Rican community leader quickly goes in on Abigail as one of F.A.N.G's best match ups in the game even dating back to when the character was around top tier in years past because the Shadaloo right hand man can pretty much run him over from any part of the screen along with having the ability to coward crouch under the big boy's heavy punch setups.

Though Mono points out he doesn't feel like his main has matches that go extremely in his favor, he does have F.A.N.G slightly over Urien, who is often considered to be one of the best in the game right now. It's apparently a tighter race now, however with Mono claiming its gone from very favorable in the past to potentially even now.

One character in particular stands out among the rest as F.A.N.G's worst opponent with Cammy in the 'LOSES HORRIBLY lol' category because she can counter or preemptively shut down everything the poison wielder wants to do with all of her main spiral specials especially.

For a full breakdown on Mono's thoughts for F.A.N.G's match ups, we suggest checking out his video discussion below along with the final resulting chart.
