Last month we reported that Du "NuckleDu" Dang won the CPT North America, and now NuckleDu has continued his success by winning the Capcom Cup this past weekend, claiming the largest prize in fighting game history, $230,000 US dollars.

NuckleDu performed outstandingly throughout the entire tournament, only losing four games in the whole thing and winning all his matches 3-0 or 3-1. His domination of Zeng "Xiao Hai" Zhuojun was the most impressive performance, however.

Ricki Ortiz was beaten in the final, however, she took home $60,000 dollars, and third place Inoue "Kazunoko" Ryota took home $25,000.

NuckleDu is the first American to win the main Street Fighter tournament for 14 years, and at PlayStation Experience he broke the curse with a performance that is sure to intimidate those who may face him in the future.

Do you think his success can continue?
