@Sajam joins the commentary team at the Killer Instinct World Cup!
Last night, the team behind the KI World Cup released an announcement regarding UltraDavid’s return to the commentators’ team for their prestigious event this year. Today, we learn that Stephen “Sajam” Lyon will also be returning to cast the event alongside David!

The scene jokingly refers to Sajam by titles such as “young-old man,” but despite his status as fresh blood his commentary shares the top tier status with casters such as UltraDavid and James Chen. Injustice 1 would bring Sajam to the arena as a Nightwing specialist, but he eventually put down his escrima sticks in favor of handling the microphone. His work would eventually earn him a seat at the Mandalay Bay last year to cast the Street Fighter V Top 8 World Finals at EVO 2016, which was also broadcast on live television via the ESPN2 network.
Not surprisingly, he graced the World Cup with his presence last year. He’d previously shared the role with Keits, James Chen, UltraDavid, ShinTristan and Maximilian, and thus far half of that team is confirmed to make a return. Perhaps the rest will follow?
We will update you when we learn more! In the meantime, remember to pick up your tickets for the 2017 World Cup! It takes place on March 10-12 at the Tobin Center in San Antonio, Texas.
