I was mildly amused by the Evander Holyfield connection.

Golgo 13 is one of my favorite characters. He punks the world by sniping with a M16 and using a .38 as a sidearm which works because he's always got the flawless headshot.

I heard somewhere that Ryu was meant to be based on Mas "god hand" Oyama.

Doesn't ryu do shotokan? That means he's based on this guy:

I like Street Fighter but I don't like the values it teaches kids. It promotes the idea that Karate works.

Becuase they are teh funny, I will post this set of books I found:

Shotokan is the translation they used when they brought SF over to North America. Back in Japan, the style is known as Ansatsuken. It's basically any martial arts created for assassination.

Virtus knows that. He just used that as an excuse to post a series of hilarious pictures.

Zangief is based on a Russian wrestler of the same name. Never managed to find a photo of him, though.

The Haggar/Ventura thing is funny considering his political career started 15 years after the game came out. Damn strange coincidence.
