Like his namesake, a tiger, Ling Hu was ferocious. Standing roughly 1.9 meters tall, he was comparable to Ling Ziran.
Furthermore, his body was muscular.
Standing opposite Ling Xiao, he resembled an uncle rather than a boy of fifteen years.
He didn’t even need to make a move. Even when standing there, his momentum at Rank Three Martial Vein was enough for Rank Two Martial Vein martial artists to tremble.
“Come! Strength doesn’t come from one’s mouth!”
Ling Xiao stood still and gestured for him to bring it on. A trifling Rank Three Martial Vein martial artist didn’t pose any threat to the current him.
“Arrogant! Do you still dare to use a basic martial art? I will let you know what power means!”
“Fierce Tiger Fist!”
Ling Hu roared and pounced at Ling Xiao. He seemed to transform into a fierce tiger with fierce momentum.
Although it was still an intermediate martial art, compared to the intermediate martial arts previously displayed by Rank Two Martial Vein martial artists, it was a lot more powerful.
With an outburst of true qi, his punch’s force was exerted to the extreme.
Its speed and explosiveness were terrifying.
“No wonder you have the confidence to end my winning streak. This fist is indeed not bad. I guess that an average Peak Rank Three Martial Vein martial artist wouldn’t dare to challenge you.”
Facing this, Ling Xiao unexpectedly spoke while calmly accepting this move.
“However, meeting me is doomed to be your tragedy. Go down!”
“Barbarian Bull Strength!”
Accompanying his voice, Ling Xiao’s dual fists appeared.
On the stage, a battle between a fierce tiger and a barbarian bull began.
“F**k, this kid is daring! In front of Ling Hu’s Fierce Tiger Fist, he actually still used the basic martial art Barbarian Bull Strength?”
“Humph! He’s just courting death!”
This could only be described as a collision between strength and strength.
A figure was ejected from the stage and landed heavily on the ground.
Ling Hu’s sturdy body that weighed more than 180 pounds was revealed in the dust. His bloodied nose had been smashed.
He was also missing his front teeth.
How was this possible!?
The audience had their jaws drop.
“Number 9588 wins. 33 wins in a row!”
Only after the judge announced the result did everyone return to their senses.
This was too terrifying!
Still one move!
Still a basic martial art!
33 victories in a row!
Many who had despised Ling Xiao suddenly closed their mouths. They wished they could scrub out their past words.
Hadn’t they said that Ling Xiao wouldn’t dare to use Barbarian Bull Strength against a Rank Three Martial Vein martial artist?
Not only had he done that, but he had also still won in one move!
Ling Ziran left with a gloomy face.
Now, he wanted to meet Ling Xiao and personally teach him a lesson; otherwise, Ling Xiao’s reputation would soon exceed his.
“Big Brother Ziran, that Ling Xiao is not easy to deal with. I’m afraid that we might not win.”
When Ling Yu said this, a sly smile appeared on her face. This was clearly a provocation.
“Humph, you can rest assured. That Ling Hu was only ranked 140; moreover, he only learned some intermediate martial arts. However, I am ranked twentieth; moreover, I’ve learned an advanced martial art!”
Ling Ziran was truly irritated.
Men, even if they were only 15 or 16 years old, were unwilling to hear a beautiful girl claim another man was stronger than them.
Besides, Ling Ziran honestly didn’t fear Ling Xiao. He believed that Ling Xiao had maintained his winning streak simply because his opponents were too weak.
Ling Yu smiled and said, “Okay, Big Brother Ziran, don’t get angry. Let’s finish our own matches first. There will always be a chance for you two to meet.”
Now, more and more people paid attention to Ling Xiao.
34 wins in a row!
45 wins in a row!
60 wins in a row!
90 wins in a row!
This was absolutely a miracle!
The judges were shocked.
Around the ninetieth round, because most disciples with relatively weak cultivations had already been eliminated, the rest were basically all Rank Three Martial Vein martial artists.
Along the way, Ling Xiao had even encountered ten Rank Three Martial Vein martial artists in a row but dispatched them with one move each.
Moreover, he had only used the basic martial art Barbarian Bull Strength.
Perhaps, stimulated by Ling Xiao, Ling Ziran acted more ruthlessly.
By the ninetieth round, most took the initiative to admit defeat against an opponent who could seriously harm them, so Ling Ziran won more easily.
Now, both had 90 consecutive wins, but they still hadn’t encountered each other.
In accordance with the judges’ thoughts, it would be better if these two people didn’t encounter each other.
Since both were outstanding among these 10,000 contestants, if they could both successfully obtain 100 consecutive victories and enter the next round, it would certainly be a good thing. Perhaps, it would even herald that the Ling Clan had new rising talents.
During the lunch break, most people gossiped about Ling Xiao and Ling Ziran.
“Senior apprentice brother, that Ling Xiao used a basic martial art to defeat all his opponents. That is quite a feat! As for that Ling Ziran, he too forced many disciples to admit defeat with his strength. If they fight, who do you think will win?”
“In my opinion, Ling Ziran has a better chance of winning. After all, Ling Ziran knows an advanced martial art. Although Ling Xiao’s basic martial art is somehow very effective, when all is said and done, it’s only a basic martial art. It will be useless against Ling Ziran!”
“Is that really so? Sure enough, Senior’s insight is better! I too think that Ling Xiao is good. Unfortunately, he didn’t learn better martial arts!”
“Actually, I think Ling Xiao has a higher chance of winning.”
Now, Ling Xiao had gained some fans.
“Why do you say that?”
“I saw the match between Ling Xiao and Ling Tieshou that day. When Ling Xiao used his movement technique, not even Ling Tieshou couldn’t catch him. But today, Ling Xiao has yet to use that movement technique.”
“You’re not wrong, but Ling Ziran also hasn’t yet used his advanced martial art. He’s only used intermediate martial arts.”
Much like the intense battles found on the stage, the fierce disputes among rival supporters also spread below the stage.
In the past, Ling Xiao hadn’t had any position within the Ling Clan, so it had been impossible for him to have even a single supporter.
However, during this elimination round, he had made some fans.
Most of these people had had experiences similar to his own. They had been recruited from the outside and bullied upon entering.
Therefore, Ling Xiao was their heroic idol!
After the hour-long meal break, the competition resumed.
By now, the sky had already begun to darken. Ling Xiao would barely complete his 100 consecutive wins, before today’s competition finished.
The others would continue tomorrow.
Martial artists were also human; they too needed rest.
However, Ling Xiao unexpectedly encountered Ling Yu in his 91st match.
This girl he had once hated and loved.
Now, he only held disappointment and disdain for her.
Standing on the stage, Ling Xiao indifferently eyed her.
“Ling Yu, who would have thought that the little beggar who you once bullied has now become your nightmare!”
“Hee, hee! Big Brother Ling Xiao, don’t slander me like that. I was young in the past and didn’t know to cherish little beggars. While I was a little unruly, I also didn’t do anything too excessive.”
Ling Yu smiled at Ling Xiao and strolled forward, completely unguarded.
“What’s the matter with these two people? This is a competition, not a chat. Why are they still talking?”
The people below the stage were a little unhappy. The actions of those two people bored them.
“Is that so? Do you seriously think I don’t know that you were the one who poisoned several of my fellow beggar brothers?”
“Haha! Big Brother Ling Xiao truly likes to crack jokes. How could I do such a thing? Do you really think I am that kind of person?”
Ling Yu sauntered to Ling Xiao’s side and stroked his arm.
In her eyes, there was a strange luster.
“Secret Technique——Soul Stirring Technique!”
