    hold C as opponent lands and get burned by the flame, about 3 hits or so, 
    then let to the C button for a high damage combo.
    
    #2
    (C)(HD)(XX)(MAX)
    Jump C/D, stand C/D, QCF + D, D down A cancel into Free style final showdown
    (C).  Not much explanation for this, just do as above.
    
    100% COMBO!
    -----------
    (HD)(C)(MAX)(DM)(XX)
    Jump D, stand C, QCF + D, D, QCF + A, dwn A, QCB, QCF + A/C, hold A/C, A/C
    Jumping heavy kick, standing heavy punch combo-ed into qcf + D, D, as
    opponent about to land, qcf + A, then immediately crouching light punch
    cancelled into qcb, qcf + A/C and hold A/C, as fire burns enemy after 2-3
    hits, letgo A/C and opponent dies!
    
    
    (NEW)(C)(MAX)(XX)
    Jump C/D, Stand C. QCF + D, D, QCF + A, QCF + A, QCF + A, DP + C
    jumping heavy kick, standing heavy punch combo-ed into qcf + D, D, then juggle
    with qcf + A, "wicked chew", then pause for a spilt second before another 
    "wicked chew", qcf + A, then continue with qcf + A then finally finish off 
    with uppercut + C or A.
    
    (INF)(C)(XX)(HD)
    Conditions:
    - player MUST have fast hands!
    - MUST kick opponent high enough with the first set of "style 75 modify", 
      qcf + D, qcf + D
    
    QCF + D, QCF + D, dn A cancel into QCF + D, QCF + D, dn A cancel into QCF + D,
    QCF + D..repeat
    "style 75 modify", qcf + D, qcf + D then wait for about 1 sec then do crouching
     light punch cancelled into another set of "style 75 modify", qcf + D, 
     qcf + D...repeat the whole process.
    
    Note: the down A(light punch) will not and CANNOT hit the opponent for the 
    infinite to work. And also you must cancel the down A (light punch) into the 
    "style 75 modify", qcf + D, qcf + D and not wait till down A to finish its
    animation then do "style 75 modify", qcf + D , qcf + D.
    
    For short, the down A must "dissappear" or be cancelled. Timing is very 
    crucial. I've seen my friend do 20+ hits about 10 sets of dn + A cancelled 
    into "style 75 modify", qc f + D, qcf + D.
    Note 2: down C or D can also work.  But down D is kinda difficult
