Samad “Damascus” Abdessadki

Samad “Damascus” Abdessadki

Meet Samad Abdessadki, also known as Damascus. A former competitor in Street Fighter IV, Damascus travelled the world to meet and compete with the Fighting Games Communities of France, Sweden, the USA and the UK.

Damascus was eventually drawn to commentary, and when Street Fighter V released, he chose to shift his focus to this part of the game. Nowadays, he can commonly be seen providing commentary and/or hosting tournaments such as Capcom Pro Tours and Red Bull Kumite. Lately he’s been doing a lot of work with Dragon Ball Fighter, and he’s even stepped outside the fighting games scenes by doing some Rocket League casting!

Damascus is also hugely passionate about building communities in esports: “I hope I can motivate people to be part of the family!”
