Francis Steven “Gogoy” Cabahug is one of the top Tekken players of Cebu and Visayas in general. He is known as the best Xiaoyu player in the Philippines not only by the local Tekken community but even in the international Tekken scene as well. Having played Xiaoyu since Tekken 3, Gogoy has reached a level of expertise with the character that allows him to compete at high levels of play, occasionally besting top players from other countries online and offline.
He bested Nobi in a first-to-3 match when the Japanese players came to the Philippines in 2014 (see video above). Back when Sodam was still staying in the Philippines, Gogoy and him would spar with each other’s Xiaoyu with neither side having a clear advantage every time. In several occasions, he has also beaten other foreign players like Korea’s JDCR and Knee in online matches which you can find on his YouTube channel.
Gogoy will be joining REV Major Philippines as UFTC.Gogoy, representing Unifiltekken in the tournament. We at Unifiltekken are proud to have a skilled player such as him and we wish him the best of luck in REV Major!
