I still haven't seen the match. But the chances are that dragunov first had to analise his opponent before he could do serious damage. I think you should always play 3 to 5 matches before you can really tell who the better player is, a mistake is easily made and leads to really big damage, plus in the beginning it's a bit of experimenting what works on this dude and what doesn't.

PUTAIN !!! No seriously man, this is by far the BEST match I've ever seen, damn man. The first time that tekken impressed me like SF4 does. There are lots of matches in SF4 that makes your jaw drop, I'd never found anything like that in Tekken 'till I saw this.
Nyway to analyze this a little, it's really clear that dragunov needed some time to adapt to law's playstyle. Cuz seriously that law player is GODLIKE, I've never seen a law player play like THAT.
He has opened my eyes in a lot of ways, the way he baits out his opponent is really something you should give him credit for.
Not only that, he is technically really really good and fast. If you're not a law player then you might not have seen it, but he canceled alot of his moves just to give him that bit of a frame advantage and he never failed.
Law has 2 stances DFS and DSS (it are his dragon stances) Law is able to cancel his moves to DFS, and from DFS to DSS. It's not that hard but you need to time it right.
But I won't go deeper into his Dragon stances, if you want to know more about it. Ya should check out his tutorials on youtube or click this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DnKHZCOcm8U
(the video is 8 minutes long).
And about that dragunov player, I can't really say much about him cuz I don't play with dragunov and have no idea how the commands or frames of his moves are. But I can say that he was better than law.
You can see that dragunov wasn't used to this law guy and got beat up in the first matches, but he figured that law pretty much out after the 2 or 3'rd match. He defended more and didn't got bait out by law anymore.
That law player was a fool and getting cocky when he was winning, but after his first loss you could see him getting desperate and going for the dragon tails (his sweep move) it was by then clear for me who was gonna win this match, that law player was looking for new ways to beat dragunov but dragunov was just better and outplayed him.
Well that's my opinion and how that match looked like to me ^^'
