Dominique “SonicFox” McLean ended Pride month in style Sunday by taking home the Mortal Kombat 11 championship at Community Effort Orlando 2019.
True to his character, SonicFox entered the arena to Sardonyx’s theme, a whimsical fusion character from the pro-LGBTQ cartoon Steven Universe, clad in his trademark fursuit. He dominated the CEO ring after stumbling early in the MK 11 top 8. His time in the winner’s bracket was short-lived after an opening loss to fellow gay fighting game pro Ryan “Dragon” Walker, but the loss seemingly stirred a slumbering beast within the gay esports icon.
SonicFox thrashed his way through the loser’s bracket following the loss, refusing to surrender a single set on his way to an all-gay grand finals rematch with Dragon. The pride of Echo Fox decidedly reset the bracket with a 3-1 victory, but lost the first set of the championship match.
