It looks like Dominique “SonicFox” McLean is taking home the gold after proving he’s the undisputed king of Mortal Kombat 11 at the Evolution Championship Series (Evo) 2019 grand finals. Evo has been one of the world’s largest fighting game events for over a decade.
SonicFox who has been recognized as the highest paid fighting game esports player with over $600,000 in earnings, and won Best eSports Player at The Game Awards in 2018, took to Twitter today to express his excitement over the victory, “Im gay and the BEST MK11 PLAYER ON THE PLANET DONT FORGET IT”
The tweet recognized his Mortal Kombat tournament win and referenced back to a 2018 tweet where, after winning a Dragon Ball FighterZ tournament, he came out. This is now the fourth EVO win for the black queer furry and his third Mortal Kombat win (he won EVO Grand Finals for Mortal Kombat X consecutively in 2015 and 2016).
And while he saw success in Mortal Kombat, where he initially began to make his name, this weekend he also lost to his rival Goichi “GO1” Kishida in Dragon Ball FighterZ. GO1, who had lost to SonicFox just last year for the same title, ended up crying after the victory.
“Evo was a success,” SonicFox wrote to Twitter, after tallying up his final rankings. “Thanks for all your support and roaring, it touched my heart.
Congratulations SonicFox! We can’t wait to see what the best damn furry in the eSports world has in store for us next year!
