This weekend the best fighters from around the world assembled in Las Vegas to contest Evo 2018 (Evolution Championship Series), the most prestigious competitive fighting game event in the world.

Eight games featured during this year's event (although there was also a couple of exhibition tournaments there too), but the jewel in the proverbial crown was once again Street Fighter, and this year Benjamin "Problem X" Simon made history by being the first UK player to win the coveted tournament, beating reigning world champ Tokido in the final.

"I just won EVO 2018," the new world champ wrote on Twitter after his historic victory. "Words can not explain my happiness. Thank you @mousesports thanks you everyone who supports me. Great games to everyone I played. UK and EUROPE have the championship this year."

Here are the results for all eight titles and the top eight in each discipline, although you can find more detailed results and standings here should you wish to know more about a particular game and who contested each final.
