BALROG VS RUFUS
- Always rushdown a Rufus with no meter for ex messiah kick. If Rufus does have ex messiah kick, choose your attacks wisely.
- On Rufus's ex messiah kick follow up, use ex headbutt (has to be timed well) to beat his follow up options. This will beat his overheard kick and sweep. If he does the flip kick ender, just throw him or combo from a crouching light punch.
- If a Rufus is dive kick happy and you are being pressured by it, use ex upper to get away.
- Spacing is key. A combination of crouching fierce and jump back fierce will give Rufus a hard time against you. Sparingly use crouching roundhouse because it whiffs on dive kicks.
