Pakistan Tekken Legend, Arslan 'Ash' Siddique, kept on making his country proud as he won the Uprising Korea 2023 on Sunday after beating South Korea’s Galgonge in the final 3-0.

Arslan qualified for the Winners’ final after beating his countryman Atif Khan 2-1 in the Winners’ semi-final.

In the Winners’ Final, Arslan lost to Galgonge 3-2 after a close encounter, after which he had to play the Losers Final against Varrel Pinya which he won 3-1 and qualified for the Grand Final, where he would, once again, face Galgonge.

Had Galgonge won the Grand Final against Arslan he would have been emerged champion but Arslan gave him no room and beat him 3-1 in a one-sided Grand Final.

However, as Galgonge had won the Winners Final against Arslan in the previous round, he was given another chance and the two once again had a face-off in the Grand Final Reset.

Arslan eased past his opponent in the Grand Final Reset 3-0 and emerged champion.


It must be noted in August, Arslan became a four-time EVO champion after winning the title in Las Vegas.

The 27-year-old impressed one and all with his skills and tracks and defeated Japan's AO 3-0 in the grand final.

Arslan became the only player in the world to win the prestigious event four times in Tekken 7. He won the title in Japan and Las Vegas in 2019 and repeated the same feat this year as well.

Arslan is considered by many as the greatest Tekken player of all time. He was also awarded the best E-Player of 2019 by EPSN.

Arslan is also a CEO 2021 Champion and the 2022 Combo Breaker Tekken 7 tournament winner, where he grabbed the title after defeating all of his 10 opponents.
