Hold onto your potatoes. Yesterday, a fan asked Lupe about EVO: https://twitter.com/_fuckjoel/status/692227691685232640
Only to study Daigo… https://t.co/TyAlqWaDSB— Lupe Fiasco (@LupeFiasco) January 27, 2016
Next thing you know Mad Catz is on the scent:
@LupeFiasco hi, I'm Mark with Mad Catz. How about a session to go ham on SFV with our man Daigo? I'll bring the sticks. Let me know.— Mark Julio (マークマン) (@MarkMan23) January 27, 2016
And just like that, Lupe was in:
!!!! It would be an honor to lose to Daigo-San… https://t.co/GLrSl3wxcd— Lupe Fiasco (@LupeFiasco) January 27, 2016
Note this hasn’t been confirmed; Twitch and Mad Catz (who sponsor Daigo) are merely working on it. Though really, who’s going to say no to this (unless Daigo himself isn’t down). Were it to take place, it’d be staged as some kind of exhibition fight.
Folks are excited. Folks like Markel Lee, who even drew up a poster for the fight (as used up top).
