Last but not least, EVO: Japan ended on a high note with Street Fighter V Champion Edition grand finals, where DNG Nauman and veteran Mago faced off in a set with Nauman getring the upper hand beating Mago 3-0 after the latter reset the bracket 3-1. The most impressive feature is that Nauman won the tournament using none other than Sakura. This is the first time this character has won a Premier-like event, and did it with formidable fashion.
