After an incredible performance from ZeRo this year, it was a surprise to see that a player managed to outperform him in an event sporting ZeRo's name.
Funnily enough, this wasn't the first time ZeRo has lost at his own event. In fact, every event in the past that has included ZeRo in the title has seen ZeRo fail at getting a win.
This particular event was 2GGT ZeRo Saga, and it saw some of the best Smash players across the globe fight it out for a $10,000 prize. Whilst it was surprising to ZeRo not take the win, it was perhaps even more surprising to see the actual winner.
MKLeo managed to take the grand prize after fighting his way through, Larry Lur, VoiD and plenty of other players. In fact, Leo originally found himself in the loser's bracket earlier in the tournament. It wasn't until MKLeo beat ZeRo in the loser's finals that he saw himself in the grand finals against Larry Lur.
MKLeo took the first set of matches in an impressive fashion with a 3-1 score line. However, with MKLeo coming from the loser's bracket, he had to face up against Lur for another time. The fight was close, but MKLeo managed to just peel away with a 3-2 score.
This win makes it MKLeo's first ever on an international stage and it's also the first time MKLeo has defeated ZeRo. For those maybe unaware of this new and upcoming player, MKLeo is just 15 years old, and after this latest event it's clear he has plenty of potential.
