Mistah F.A.B. and IAMSU were among the Oakland celebs who came out to support a one-of-a-kind video game competition last Saturday. Ultimate Gaming League (UGL), the brainchild of black gamers Brad Flewellen and Chuck Johnson, was created to foster diversity in the E-Sports world and offer tournament events with a hip-hop twist. This vision was delivered inside Oakland's Halftime Sports Bar last weekend when gamers and athletes faced off for the UGL Undertaker title that was eventually claimed by pro-gamer Mark “Bam” Samuels at the end of the series of mini-tournaments. Host Daryle "The Guru" Johnson kept the competitions rolling while DJ Flygerian Jeff kept the dance floor lit for the spectators!
This kick-off party got Oakland's diverse gaming community hyped for their main Halftime Football Challenge event taking place on October 13th. That's when registered competitors will go head-to-head for a $2.5 K grand prize and the right to call themselves the best Madden player in the Bay!
