Eleague's Street Fighter V Invitational finally came to a close this past weekend, after weeks of competition from some of the best fighters in the world, but it was to be Panda Global's Victor 'Punk' Woodley who emerged victorious after the dust had settled, defeating Arman 'Phenom' Hanjani in the grand final to nab the trophy and $150,000 USD.

Punk has faced Phenom in the winner's final earlier on, losing 3-1, so there was everything to play for when they met once more in the grand final, but some costly errors and obviously nervousness from both meant that Punk was able to seal off the win for himself.

Elsewhere Ai 'Fuudo Keita finished in third place, with Eduardo 'PR Balrog' Perez taking home fourth, so there was plenty of talent on show, but the young talent Punk clearly had more in his locker, unsurprising considering his good form has earned him trophies at DreamHack Austin and West Coast Warzone.

Is Punk the best SFV pro in the world right now?
