Mister Crimson and Arslan Ash to Miss Red Bull Kumite Las Vegas

by in Fighting Game News | Nov, 12th 2021

Red Bull Kumite Las Vegas is gearing up to be the biggest offline fighting game event of the year. Twenty-nine of the world’s top competitors were invited to play in tournaments held for three different games. The Last Chance Qualifier (LCQ) winner for each game would join the invitees in the official bracket. 

Unfortunately, two invitees had to pull out of the event this week due to unexpected circumstances. On Wednesday, Nathan “Mister Crimson” Massol announced via Twitter that he would not compete in the Street Fighter V tournament at Red Bull Kumite Las Vegas. The following day, Arslan “Arslan Ash” Siddique announced he was unable to travel to America for the Tekken 7 tournament. Both players are at the top of their respective games and it is a shame their talents will no longer be on display this weekend.
