In a surprising turn of events, rapper Lupe Fiasco beat world Street Fighter champion Daigo Umehara.
Lupe Fiasco, who is an avid gamer, was set to play Daigo at the Street Fighter 5 launch event. While most people, myself included, expected Daigo to win, him being the champion and all, Lupe managed to sneak away with the win. This has led many people to believe that the match was fixed. Given the fact that it was a well-known rapper who was playing the champion, it is possible. Either way, the match was entertaining and succeeded in generating hype for the recently released fighting game.
