It's been a long weekend, but Apex 2015 is finally reaching its climactic finish. What better way to end the largest Smash Bros. tournament to date than with a little drama?


Swedish player Leffen and SoCal's C9|Mango played in winners semi-finals. This match had more than just a trip to winners finals riding on it however. Earlier in the weekend, Leffen and Liquid|Chillin squared off in a grudge match for the rights over who would be allowed to use Fox's original costume from now on.

Leffen swept his opponent 5-0 and did so in a fashion that was less than humble. Leffen has been known to play off of his heel-like personality, making him something of a villain that everyone loves to hate.
Immediately after the match, Mango stood up and challenged Leffen to a $1,000 money match should they meet in the bracket.

With America's pride, as well as 1K on the line, Mango squared off against Leffen in a first to three bout.
