It was my brother who had bought our copy of Street Fighter 2 on ST. I should ask him if he enjoyed playing it.
My memories of an ST(e) title willing to bring arcade fighting gameplay on ST was Ultimate Arena
, a home-made Mortal Kombat clone for STe.
It wasn't too bad compared to Mortal Kombat on Megadrive, much more advanced than many ST fighting games and fun to play, even with its one button joystick gameplay.
And, as ST Format review on the page i linked states, it also featured "too much loading and unpacking" (but was HD installable).
