One is motivated by reason,

the other by purpose.

Tonight, we witness

this distinction

as our contestants battle to

prove who and what they are.


He's getting killed

out there, boss.

I thought you wanted

him to go all the way.

He has to learn.

What's the matter?

You afraid of what

you can do to them?

Don't be.

Bring up camera six.

Our hero, Tiger Chen,

fighting today.

A knockout artist,

a punisher. The crane.

Will Tiger survive?

Let's find out.

Boss, this guy's a killer.

There are people watching.

He says it's just underground

fighting, but it's not.

There's something else going on.

There are cameras everywhere.

It's like a show.

It's like a show.

Get me a fight.

A fight you will get.

Tonight is about

more than fighting.

- Who am I facing?

- A mercenary.

- What's his specialty?

- Killing.

Get yourself ready.

Tonight we bear witness

to the purity of purpose

and the absence of reason.

Two men, one ring.

Two warriors, one destination.

Tiger Chen...

...or Uri Romanov?


Finish him.

Finish him!

Finish him.

Finish him.

What did you kill him?

Don't kid yourself.

I just finished

what you started.

I didn't come here to kill.

Then why did you come here?

For the money?

I don't want to

do this anymore.

What? You think this

is a delivery job?

You think you can just quit?

What do you mean?

I'll see you in three days.

Yes, sir?

Thank you, sir.

Let's go.

- You on your way?

- Yes.

Pass me to Gong.

Sure thing, boss.

So chill right inside.

I'll be back when they're

ready for you, all right?

Is she dead?


- Enjoy.

- I will.

From the mists

of ancient times,

tai chi.

Not traditionally thought of

as a martial art, until now.

In the heart of China,

an only son,

and the last student

of Ling Kong Tai Chi,
