Daigo Umehara is the most dominant fighting game champion in the world. He is best known for his aggressive play and nearly psychic ability to predict and counter his opponent's next move. This power not only paralyzes world-class opponents, but has also led to many unforgettable comebacks from the brink of defeat, as first made famous at the EVO 2004 World Finals. Daigo lives and practices in Tokyo, Japan, but travels all around the world to face new challengers. His many victories and bloodthirsty style have earned him the nickname "The Beast."
