Arslan ‘Ash’ Siddiqui wins Tekken 7 at Evo 2019 tournament

 

Arslan “Ash” Siddiqui on Sunday won the Tekken 7 Championship at the Evolution Championship Series held in Las Vegas of the United States’ Nevada, becoming the first national player in the history to do so.

Arslan “Ash” Siddiqui — who played the Tekken 7 Championship at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center on August 4, 2019, and goes by the username Arslan_Ash — bowed down and touched his head to the ground in gratitude as he was crowned the World’s Tekken 7 Champion.

His win is a monumental one, especially in light of the fact that he was almost a nobody in the Tekken community a year ago; now, however, he is the best Tekken 7 player in the whole world!

Mortal Kombat 11 EVO 2019 Champion SonicFox

 

Evo 2019’s Mortal Kombat 11 tournament ended with Dominique “SonicFox” McLean lying on stage, his weekend of competition finally over. He was once again the king of Mortal Kombat.

Although SonicFox has competed in multiple games over his career, NetherRealm Studios franchises have always felt like his home. He first made his mark on Evo history by winning Injustice: Gods Among Us in 2014 before earning back-to-back Mortal Kombat X championships in 2015 and 2016. SonicFox’s focus strayed a bit with the release of Dragon Ball FighterZ, which he won at Evo 2018, but he can never be counted out when it comes to the games where he first found huge success.
