Fujimura wins Red Bull Kumite 2019 ⚡⚡⚡ Esports and gaming news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

Sixteen world warriors clashed in the Red Bull Kumite 2019 tournament, invited to compete for the crown. Following yesterday’s Last Chance Qualifier, the defending champion, Fudoh's Atsushi "Fujimura" Fujimura fought his way to the top to snatch victory once more.

Fujimura’s win earns him two additional accolades. He’s now the first player not only to win two Kumite events but the first to do so back-to-back. Cygames Beast’s DC "Infexious" Coleman first met Fujimura in the Winners Finals in which he lost 1-3. Infexious moved to the Losers Finals to have a rematch with SonicBoxx’s Gustavo "801 Strider" Romero whom he had previously sent to the Loser bracket during the Winners Semifinals. Infexious took out 801 Strider once more, in a clean sweep.

The defending champion faced Infexious yet again in the Grand Final. The first two games were close affairs but both went to Fujimura. In the third game, Infexious made a remarkable comeback after getting very close to losing the game and matchup. Once Infexious took the fourth game, everyone expected a bracket reset, but it never came. Fujimura proved to be the better player in the series, beating the British player with Ibuki’s V-Skill 2, as if endorsing its usefulness.

Here are Red Bull Kumite 2019’s final standings:

  • 1. Atsushi "Fujimura" Fujimura - Fudoh

  • 2. DC "Infexious" Coleman - Cygames Beast

  • 3. Gustavo "801 Strider" Romero - SonicBoxx

  • 4. Houmaid "Takamura" Rabie

  • 5. Kubo "stormKUBO" Arashi - Team iXA 

  • 5. Benjamin "Problem X" Simon - mousesports

  • 7. Hajime "Tokido" Taniguchi - Rohto

  • 7. Victor "Punk" Woodley - Team Reciprocity

  • 9. Adel "Big Bird" Anouche - NASR eSports

  • 13. Tsunehiro "gachikun" Kanamori - Red Bull eSports

  • 13. Daigo "The Beast" Umehara - Cygames Beast

  • 13. Haku 

The saying goes, “when in Rome, do as the Romans do,” and that’s exactly what Red Bull did, replacing the tournament trophy with a samurai helmet (Kabuto). The two-time champion wore the exquisite headpiece to mark his victory.
