Sayed “Tekken Master” Hashim fought his way through three days of intense competition to emerge runner up in the inaugural season of WePlay Ultimate Fighting League.
Dominique “SonicFox” McLean won an amazing grand finals coming back from a 1-3 loss to Tekken Master earlier in the winner’s finals. The grand finals was a nail biting affair with the final score reading 5-1.
Held in a ‘quarantine bubble’ at the WePlay’s Esports Arena in Kyiv, Ukraine, WUFL Season 1 showcased fourteen of the finest international competitors with Tekken and SonicFox emerging tournament favourites. Tekken Master had won WePlay MK11 Dragon Temple in December 2021. He proved he had the skills to taken on SonicFox in the winner’s finals, only for the title winner to prevail in the Grand finals faceoff.
The tournament was richer for the amazing talent on display throughout, and the final was one to remember. It was a truly exciting end to one of the first LAN fighting game tournaments of 2021 with a clash of two equally matched players with opposing styles. Tekken Master’s Cetrion helped overpower SonicFox in the 3-1 winner’s finals, but SonicFox’s Joker won the closely fought first set 5-4 and reset the bracket. SonicFox was visibly more composed in the second set, responding with a thumping 5-1 win to claim the title and the US$ 15,000 prize.
The Final Kombat 2020 champion defeated Tekken Master, Hamid “MK_Azerbaijan” Mustafayev, and Curtis “Rewind” McCall in the finals bracket enroute to the Grand finals.
The action will continue at WUFL with the arrival of the world’s best Soulcalibur VI players who will headline the second week of competition.
