The only way to deal with Hugo in SFxTK is by poking and turtle. Zoning in that game sucks, and once Hugo hits you once with Body Press the match is almost over. The problem is that only chars like Kaz and Chun have cool pokes. SRK has worse starup in this game than in Volt, so using it after getting hit with Body Press is useless and very risky. Then, his cr.MK has the biggest range in the game, so you can't play footsies. And let's not forget Super Armor for Lariat.
His only bad matchup is against Kaz, whose Mist Step will avoid almost any attack, and his st.HK is also very good. He can deal without problems with the rest of the characters, even with Sim. You can't even bait him to do Shootdown Backbreaker by using Air Raid with Hwo or Rolento because he'll actually grab you.
So. Damn. OP.
