Ryuudai goads him and and incited Kunimaru readies to go for him until Jyungo makes him lose his balance. With Kunimaru making an inquiring face, Jyungo asks him to let him face Ryuudai. Kunimaru notes Jyungo's nervousness and acknowledges that Jyungo was an interesting guy.
In the waiting area, Icchi is resting with Yukina and Eiko beside her; while resting, Icchi notes all the things one learns in a roda and acknowledges the feelings that Mèng had passed on to her.

Back in the ring, after learning a bit about what lethwei entailed, Jyungo's fight with Ryuudai begins, with the latter vehemently attacking with a vicious elbow strike.
