Chris G (pictured left) looked to prove that his Sakura play is ready for the Capcom Cup at Next Level last night. Mission accomplished.

A former boxing champion and pound for pound great once said, "Ya'll Must've Forgot."

In case you have indeed forgotten, Chris G isn't just an Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 stalwart, he's also solid in Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition 2012 (AE 2012). For those who needed a refresher, the player took first place in the AE 2012 tournament at last night's (Oct. 2) Battle Circuit event at Next Level in Brooklyn, NY.

The durable play has to be a momentum boost for Chris G, who qualified for the Capcom Cup with his first place finish at The Fall Classic 2013.

Here are the top eight AE 2012 results from Next Level Battle Circuit 39 (via EventHubs).
