South American eSports team New Master signs Tekken Collision 2016 champion Sapito

Brazilian based eSports team New Master announced today that they have just signed one of Peru’s best Tekken players, Jean Carlos Huaman Tello, better known as Sapito. Sapito is a highly-skilled Lei Wulong and Ling Xiaoyu player, with his most recent tournament win being Tekken Collision 2016, which featured the likes of Abel (Peru), Saint (Korea), and Anakin, Kodee and Inkognito (USA).

New Master announced the news earlier today through their Facebook page:

Finally! Now he’s also part of TEAM NEW MASTER, soon you will be facing him on the world stage… We present to you one of the best players in the globe! Welcome, SAPITO!!!

This makes the third Tekken player New Master has added to their roster, with the others being Leandro Foloni, a very technical Lili and Paul player, and El Negro Piripicho, a very well-known Tekken player from Venezuela.

Having spoke with New Master’s CEO, Julio Ataliba Ribeiro Neto, Sapito’s next major tournament appearance will be TXT Brazil 2016 in December.

We have an interview with Sapito and his good friend Abel that should be published this weekend, or early next week.

Aziz Peregrino-Brimah aka Zee the CEO | Founder / Editor-in-chief of TekkenGamer | Gaming has been a passion of Zee's since the early days of Atari and ColecoVision. His first experience with Tekken was in the early 90's, and it was Tekken 3 that sealed the deal. True story... As a teenager Zee once received his Winn-Dixie paycheck and spent it all at the arcade the same day. Needless to say, his mother wasn't pleased.
