Can't get more badass than that pic, can't get more boring than this match. According to 2005 stats, Dante was supposed to beat Ryu with 63.72% of the vote. As you can see, he did 1.5% better. He could have finished with a higher percentage, but he lost some percentage in the second half of the match for whatever reason.
Now while this match could easily be used to ring Yoshi's death bell in the second round, that assumption means a constant Riku. Constant Riku was doubtful, and the 1.5% overperformance can easily be chalked up to bracket voting or random variation. That said, the Yoshi > Dante upset wasn't looking too good after this match. Dante was clearly constant, while Yoshi was a wild card going in, relying on a NintendoFAQs factor to win. It's always nice having debated matches in which both characters have a good chance.
Dunno what else there really is to say about Dante's win here, really.
