The solo finals for the Fortnite World Cup was an incredible event where Sentinels’ Bugha was able to dominate the leaderboard by almost doubling second place’s points.
On July 29, Bugha appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon where the two discussed Fortnite, training for a $30 million event, and more.
Jimmy Fallon talking with the Solo World Champion
The 16-year-old from Pennsylvania broke the record of the highest amount won in an esports tournament by beating 99 of the top Fortnite players from around the globe.
Bugha was invited on to chat with Jimmy Fallon about his practice schedule and how much effort went into winning the Fortnite World Cup Solo Championship.
“I wake up around 12 on the weekends, warm-up for about 30 minutes, and then get into a call with my friends to go over strategies.” Bugha continued with, “It’s like my job.”
Fallon also asked the teenager where he got his in-game name, Bugha, where the young man explained that his grandfather used to make the sound when watching over him.
Bugha’s dominating win
The Fortnite World Cup Finals were packed full of intense matches, but Bugha’s performance during each of the six games made sure he was untouchable.
Since the first game, which he won, the 16-year-old held a solid lead over the rest of the 99 other Fortnite competitors.
Second place finished with 33 points, which is certainly impressive, but was over half away from Bugha’s final 59 points. The Pennsylvanian was able to secure his spot thanks to elimination and placement points.
Bugha’s media appearances are not over as he will be appearing on The Today Show on Tuesday, July 30. We are excited to see him give more interviews and spread the news on Fortnite!
