What can’t we do? SONICFOX, a Black Nonbinary Furry is not to be messed with when it comes to fighting games, and he proved that last night (Mar.8) when he was crowned champion of the Mortal Kombat 11 Pro Kompetition season.

At the historic Park West theater in Chicago, professional gamer Dominique McLean better known as the furry SONICFOX, solidified his spot at the top as one of the best to pick up the sticks in the fighting game genre. He came out on top out of a group of 16 the consisted of the best Mortal Kombat 11 players from around the world becoming a back-to-back champion.

Playing as The Joker, he secured the victory over CGL Ninjakill_212 also from the United States in an intense match that took place during the Grand Finals match, not only taking home the Final Kombat 2020 trophy which is Shao Khan’s hammer but also $40,000 in prize money.

Not a bad haul for playing video games. His opponent did walk away with $20,000, so coming in second wasn’t so bad.
