Without a doubt, CJ “Ribo” Ribo is now the winningest Mobile Legends: Bang Bang professional player in the world. 

The veteran sidelaner of Bren Esports just added the M2 Mobile Legends: Bang Bang World Championship to his huge collection of trophies on Sunday night. 

“G.O.A.T (Greatest of All Time)?” Ribo said in a caption on a Facebook photo showing him holding the M2 plaque. 

The 25-year-old standout then listed down all the major international and local championships he has won so far in his lustrous professional career. 

In local soil, Ribo won two MPL Philippines titles–the first one with the fabled Aether Main squad of AkosiDogie in Season 1 and the second with Bren in Season 6–and The Nationals Season 2.  

The Caviteño pro emerged victorious in regional tilts SEA Cyber Arena, Mobile Legends SEA Cup (MSC), Challenger Summit Singapore,  Razer SEA Invitational and most importantly, the SEA Games in 2019. 

Ribo proved to be instrumental in Bren’s lower bracket run en route to the nail-biting 4-3 victory against Myanmar’s Burmese Ghouls in the grand finals of the second world tourney. 

His sidelane Harith in the winner-take-all Game 7 provided the needed magic damage for Bren as he took a double kill in the title-clinching clash.
Only time can tell how many more championships Ribo and Bren will win in the future.
