I actually see this in Hugos favor.. :/

Dashpunches (except upper) get beaten clean be neutral jump mp.
Non-Ex Dashes can be shut down with st. hp, just like st./cr. hk from Rog.

EX Dashes can be grabed (normal and command).

So once Hugo gets a life lead, it's pretty much over, since Rog has no low-risk option to approach Hugo. Lariats from Hugo go right through armored specials and st.mp / cr.mk outrange balrog as well as force him into stand, effectively shutting down headbutt into ultra shenanigans, since headbutt doesnt break st.hp's armor

Agreed. Hugo also has meat squasher, which Balrog doesn't have ANY answers to. All of his armor breakers are too slow, so if you meat squasher from close to mid range, that's it, game over.

This matchup is like Hakan vs. Balrog: Everyone thought it was in Balrog's matchup at first, but over time they realized it's severely in the grappler's favor.
