The battle between Lin Xiu and Jiang Ye continued for almost four hours, and they were still evenly matched. When they were about to continue for even longer, Lin Xiu suddenly used a martial technique that forcefully severed Jiang Ye’s spirit energy and punched him in the chest!
Jiang Ye spat out a mouthful of blood and retreated repeatedly, falling from the ring.
“Divine Might Tyrant Fist! You actually mastered it!”
Jiang Ye shouted, disregarding his own injuries.
Lin Xiu had a calm expression, as if he was not surprised by Jiang Ye’s reaction.
The Divine Might Tyrant Fist was a high-level Profound Stage martial technique. It could increase one’s speed and forcefully sever the opponent’s spirit energy to cause damage. However, it was extremely difficult to master. Therefore, very few Profound Stage cultivators would cultivate this fist technique.
Lin Xiu had also learned it with difficulty. If not for Jiang Ye’s strength, he would not have revealed this trump card.
Jiang Ye’s expression changed continuously before he finally sighed.
“The winner is Lin Xiu!”
The referee raised his voice.
“Too exciting! As expected of two Profound Stage cultivators!”
“Lin Xiu has actually grasped the Divine Might Tyrant Fist. Looks like the champion of this Mountain Gate Tournament is definitely going to be him.”
“That’s right. The Divine Might Tyrant Fist is one of the most tyrannical fist techniques among Profound Stage martial techniques. Once Lin Xiu executes it, even a middle-phase Profound Stage cultivator would not be able to block it.”
“No matter how strong Ye Liangchen is, it’s impossible for him to have already reached the late-phase of the Profound Stage, right?”
Seeing Lin Xiu defeat Jiang Ye, everyone was incomparably shocked. Even the surrounding mentors who were watching could not help but be speechless. Most of these mentors were Profound Stage cultivators, so they knew very well the difficulty of learning the Divine Might Tyrant Fist. For Lin Xiu to be able to grasp the Divine Might Tyrant Fist, it was equivalent to him surpassing them in certain aspects.
After Lin Xiu won, he did not immediately start the next round of battle. Instead, he rested for half an hour until his spirit energy had completely recovered.
“Next, let’s draw for the last round.”
As there were still three people left, they had to draw another lot to decide their opponent. Among the three, one of them would be left out.
As expected, after drawing lots, Luo Weiwei was once again left out, and Lin Xiu was to fight against Ye Liangchen.
Seeing this, the girl’s little face was rather depressed. She had originally wanted to fight with a Profound Stage cultivator and show off in front of Qin Jue. But she didn’t expect that she would actually have two consecutive empty rounds and directly enter the finals.
“Ye Liangchen, I will defeat you in front of all the disciples and let you understand that Xun’er’s choice was right!”
Lin Xiu said firmly.
Compared to Ye Liangchen, Lin Xiu was indeed a truly handsome man. Moreover, he had already stepped into the early-phase of the Profound Stage at the age of 23, and was considered a top existence amongst the inner court disciples of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect.
The reason why Xiao Chixun had abandoned Ye Liangchen back then was because she wanted to throw herself into Lin Xiu’s arms.
On the high platform, Qin Jue shook his head. Silly child, the one standing opposite you is the main character. If you just use your brain, you would discover that the one who will lose would definitely be you.
Especially since you had snatched away the main character’s childhood friend. This was the worst thing a villain could do.
However, Qin Jue did not dislike Lin Xiu. Firstly, Lin Xiu had never made any outrageous remarks from beginning to end, unlike the villains in fantasy novels who wanted to destroy the main character for no reason.
Secondly, this was a world of cultivation. No one had set a rule that stated that the female childhood lover had to always stay loyal to the main character, especially when Ye Liangchen had been stagnant for three years. Xiao Chixun was not an idiot. Why couldn’t she pursue someone better?
Right at this moment, Ye Liangchen spoke slowly with a disdainful tone. “Haha, only you would treat such trash like her as a treasure. No matter who she chooses, she’ll only be trash, and it has nothing to do with me.”
At this point, Ye Liangchen subconsciously looked at Luo Weiwei, who was in the corner of the crowd, and thought that only a girl like her is worthy of him.
Lin Xiu was furious when he heard this. “You are not allowed to insult Xun’er!”
“You’re the trash! You trash! Trash!”
As if he had struck a soft spot, Ye Liangchen roared with laughter and said, “Hahaha! Truly, trash deserves trash.”
“Do you have a death wish?!”
The furious Lin Xiu could no longer endure it. A faint green light suddenly lit up on his body, and he immediately pointed his finger.
This action seemed to be gentle, but the green light at the tip of his finger shot out like a bullet towards Ye Liangchen!
Profound Stage cultivators could already release their spirit energy. If one was hit by such energy, it would be no different from being pierced by a sharp blade.
However, Ye Liangchen didn’t retreat. He raised his fist and chose to clash head-on!
The green light hit Ye Liangchen’s fist and turned into spirit energy streams that dissipated. Ye Liangchen was unharmed.
“So you haven’t reached the Profound Stage at all.”
After his attack was neutralized, not only was Lin Xiu not angry, he even revealed a smile. “Although I don’t know what method you used to defeat Qian Xukun, the gap between the Yellow Stage and the Profound Stage is something that you can’t bridge no matter what you do.”
Originally, Lin Xiu thought that Ye Liangchen had already stepped into the Profound Stage, so he was very cautious. However, the collision from before allowed him to find out that Ye Liangchen hadn’t attained the Profound Stage and was at most at the peak of the Yellow Stage.
“Just the strength of the Yellow Stage is enough to deal with you.”
Ye Liangchen didn’t think so.
“Hmph, what shameless boasting.”
Lin Xiu’s face was dark as he circulated his spirit energy to the maximum and charged forward.
In the blink of an eye, the two of them had already exchanged blows several times. Although Ye Liangchen was able to handle Lin Xiu’s attacks, it could be seen that he was always at a disadvantage and was almost suppressed the entire time.
Lin Xiu clearly didn’t plan on delaying any longer. He found an opportunity to directly use the Divine Might Tyrant Fist, cutting off Ye Liangchen’s spirit energy, and intended on winning with a single punch.
However, right at this moment, Lin Xiu suddenly saw a smile lift up the corners of Ye Liangchen’s mouth.
Suddenly, Ye Liangchen dodged Lin Xiu’s fist at an unbelievable angle. His figure tilted lightly, and his five fingers heavily streaked across Lin Xiu’s throat!
Although Lin Xiu had already reacted quickly, he was still hit. If he had not pulled back in time, he would have died.
“He actually broke the Divine Might Tyrant Fist!”
Someone below the stage exclaimed.
If Lin Xiu wasn’t wrong just now, then it meant that Ye Liangchen had dismantled a high-grade Profound Stage martial technique with a Yellow Stage cultivation!
“How is that possible?”
Jiang Ye widened his eyes in disbelief and muttered to himself.
As someone who had experienced it for himself, Jiang Ye knew very well how terrifying the Divine Might Tyrant Fist was. Even if one put all his effort into defense, it would be very difficult to withstand it. Now, it was actually easily dismantled by a Yellow Stage cultivator?
Are you kidding me?
At this moment, only Qin Jue remained calm on the high platform. After all, this was only the basic operation of the main character.
Lin Xiu coughed twice and realized that blood had spurted out from his mouth. His throat was in extreme pain, and he was unable to speak for a moment!
At the same time, Ye Liangchen pounced forward!
Lin Xiu raised his hand and was about to counterattack when a strand of spirit energy suddenly stretched out from his throat, causing his movements to freeze.
In the next moment, Ye Liangchen’s fist smashed heavily onto Lin Xiu.
Lin Xiu grunted while his entire body was blasted flying like a rag doll. He’d never imagined that Ye Liangchen would actually leave a strand of hidden force at his throat without him noticing!
