Sako's Ibuki takes on Brazil's best Abel, Keoma, in a first to 3 bout - Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 During the Treta Aftermath event last weekend, HORI|Sakonoko sat down to battle the Brazilian Abel player, Keoma, in a first to 3 Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 set.

According to the commentators at the event, Koema is revered as Brazil's best SSF4 AE v2012 player, right now. In order to combat this, Sako picks his trademark Ibuki throughout the entire set.

This is an exciting set of matches, as both players try to get in one another's face and stay there. Wicked mix ups, crazy rushdown, and even some Perfects; this match up features a wide array of awesome moments.

Check it out after the jump.

It sucks we can't see these awesome Brazilian players like Keoma, Bruno & Breno travel to the states to play against the US guys :(. they'd probably give a bunch of players a run for their Money.

That Able focused in to tornado throw at around 3:08, how did he do that?

@5 Well US players can go to Brazil like how Sako did.

@6 NOBODY is charging you, it's f*cking FREE.
Some people might have already seen it, not everyone though.

#7 he did an armor cancel. He canceled the ex move into a tornado throw. For some reason it doesn't use up your ex bar if you do it correctly. It's extremely hard to do though. Well if you use a controller like me it is at least lol

The best Abel vs the best Ibuki. Yes, I think Keoma is the best Abel I've ever seen. He's too clean.

Isn't this a FT5?

EXCh33ky said on September 13, 2013 at 2:05 p.m.

Really liked this guy's Abel and I especially liked seeing someone use armor cancelling properly and in a real tournament setting. Can't deny though, Sako is the best, always love seeing him play.

@EH DreamKing can you post Sako-san's EVIL Ryu Money Match footage from the TA event last wknd ^.^

diddykv said on September 13, 2013 at 2:44 p.m.

Sako is now known as "Sako Loko" around here - from the word 'louco', which means 'crazy'. Crazy Sako ftw!

Also, Ryan Hart was being called "Seu Jorge"...

This should explain why: http://blogs.ne10.uol.com.br/social1/...

#6 I've never gotten the huge Ad Block screen everyone is so pissed off about. And I haven't payed a dime either (though I will when I get the chance). Yet, I'm enjoying everything on the site, for freaking FREE, how's that a scam? Why is there always someone trying to ruin the site?

Anyways on topic, this is one of the best FT5 I've seen in a while (mainly because I'm biased as a huge Sako fan). But that Abel, like some said, if he could make it to the US for a couple of tournaments, I wouldn't be surprised if he gives everyone the fight of their lives.

In this same tournament Sako also had 2 ridiculously amazing sets against Ryan Hart, and right now Sako's execution is so good, it's scary.

Best player in Brazil is an Abel player? Awesome!

@6 they streamed it live when it happened. also the only annoying ad is the banner in the middle which can still be blocked using flashfree or similar flash blocking apps

#27
chubbyfingerz said on September 13, 2013 at 4:17 p.m.

The best player in Brazil is the Abel yeah. Other good ones are ChuChu (Sakura), Breno (Cammy), Luvinha ( Ryu), and Ludo ( Sagat).

Keoma is a beast! Seeing this ft5 live brought tears to my eyes. xD

Treta hosted a hype stream, with little lag, they got top international players, and their commentators were great. THIS is how you make a tournament.

The FGC is not familiar with Brazil, or South America, because the players can't get visas to play in the big tournaments. But--based on the footage vs Sako--do we really need to hesitate in calling Keoma the best Abel in the world?

Great see Keoma getting some luv on this site.

Fantastic match.

@29 LMAO luvinha sucks. He's probably the worst "top player" in the world.

#36
Mrb20028 said on September 14, 2013 at 9:29 a.m.

Keoma's decent but he's not the best Abel I've seen. Maybe it's because I've mained him since day 1 Vanilla SF. That's just me though. Nonetheless, great set from both of these guys

Abel was definitely no joke, he knows what he's doing. Going toe to toe with Sako like that, this was a hype set.

Why are BRs so loud? Just shut up and let me watch.

I don't see the connection between blindness and noise, queerbait.

We're just hype and if you're too much of a fagg0t to watch a hype tournament, maybe you should play Angry Birds or something.

Oh, wait! They're Angry and you probably will whine like a bitch as well.

You know what? Just stop existing, seriously.
