Earlier this month, G.I.’s esports expert Suriel Vazquez gave
fighting fans a
thorough rundown of an epic head-to-head matchup: Dominique “SonicFox”
Mclean, an American fighting game player who sits atop the ranks of Injustice
2, Mortal Kombat X, and Skullgirls, took on Japan’s top anime fighting game competitor
Kishida “Go1” Goichi. Both players are at the top of Dragon Ball FighterZ’s rankings in their
respective countries, and the preamble to their first match included a fair
share of trash talk. As Suriel reported, Goichi beat Mclean handedly ending the
showdown with a 10-4 win record. After the tournament, however, Mclean tweeted
that he can do better.
Mclean got his second chance last night at the grand opening of Las Vegas’ new Esports Arena. Located at the Luxor Hotel and Casino, the opening featured a number of high-profile competitions, including Mclean and Goichi’s best-of-10 showdown.
In the interest of spoilers, we’re not going to tell you how
their rematch fared, but you can watch it for yourself in the video below! The first match begins at 41:40 (there’s a lengthy pre-amble featuring the competitors before that), and continues on in part two and part three.
