Neo League 0165 - NL#0190: Terry vs Abigail

[Toggle Names]

Description: Terry is curious to see the former champion of the Neo League, and challenges him in an all-out brawl! One that goes back and forth, and is down to the wire!

It seems that Abigail is in high demand! Despite, at one point, swearing never to return to Southtown, what with being attacked by werewolves, Syndicate crime bosses, ghosts and more...he really could have little as possible to do with this town and the fact that his round of League fights was going to be exclusive to Southtown? Oh hell no.

But it's hard to keep a sense of adventure down for long and boredom with balancing his books led to the need for a vacation. A vacation of fists and grinding bones to powder! And wouldn't you know aint been half bad. Literally. He's won one fight and lost another.

And so here we are. Another challenge to the former Neo League Champion. The location is..interesting. An amusement park isn't the first place that comes to mind for official fights but stranger things have happened. Very strange things. So he sits just outside of the combat area marked by the officials. The trunk of a large car is compressed under his vast bulk as he pulls at and stuffs large masses of cotton candy into his mouth while waiting for the arrival of his opponent.

This person challenging Abigail is likely one he'd recognize; Terry Bogard, the Legendary Wolf, is one of the most popular and well-known global phenomenon in the public fighting world. Having returned from a long sabbatical beyond his hometown's borders, it seems he's intent on getting a feel for the current fighting scene once more. When he heard of someone making waves in what's often been a static scene, he was eager to extend the offer to Abigail... and such is never done lightly. Receiving it is proof positive that Terry believes it to be a worthy fight!

A fairly large, open ring has been set up for the pair. Temporary bleachers and stands surround it, rather more then most. Despite only being available for a few days, they are packed to the brim with people who've come to watch. Not only fans of Terry, but some holding up toy dumptrucks and going "VROOM, VROOM!!" Abigail's strength is not in question, but how Terry might handle it is the question on everyone's mind...!

The distinctive figure arrives right on time, wearing his normal jeans and white shirt; red jacket and signature hat settled upon his blond hair. He hops up into the ring, but gives the crowd little mind beyond a glance, smile and wave. He's not here to entertain anyone; no, that's never been Terry's goal. He hardly minds having fans, but compared to someone like Athena, they are just something that /happened./ And of course, they enjoy that seemingly humble charm, from someone who puts no stock or importance in his fame. "Hey, hey!" he calls over to Abigail, shifting his weight from foot to foot. "Can tell at a glance why you conquered this league...! That's not just size, huh? You know how to use it! No way am I going to come out of this one unscathed!"

Despite appearances, when treated with respect Abigail is actually a pretty jovial and easy going sort of guy. One might wonder how he ended up the muscle for a guy like Belger but that's another tale. He's got his hot-button issues and if he flies into a rage he can be an unstoppable brute...but when Terry arrives and addresses him as he does, the behemoth finishes off his cotton candy and then actually offers a big grin. It's the vague connotations of a 'slasher grin' but it's a grin nonetheless.

"Heeeey.. Terry Bogard! Wow! I guess I keep rollin' high on these dice or somethin'.." The giant slips forward and steps up off of the trunk of the car as easily as if it were just a low seat. He straightens up to his full height and begins to take earth shuddering steps forward. The faint rumble a mild indication of the pressure he exerts just by walking. Dude is strong.

"Alright then.. Don't get easy on me. Lesse how much horsepower you got in that legendary engine o'yers!"

With that he leaps forward, clearing the remaining distance to thunderously land into his far corner of the fighting area. He raises a tree trunk dwarfing up and brings it down into a flex, bulking up a bicep that gives the impression of a Buick under his skin while booming for his fans: "VROOOOOOOM!!!!"

Terry does lift up his sleeveless arms, and do a flex himself. Although he might not be anywhere near someone like Abigail, the opposite figure can probably tell; these are real muscles. Dense and corded, he's an upper body that puts the majority of fighters to shame. The sort carefully sculpted and prepped through constant use and training! "Hah! No problem by me... I'm not very good at holding back, anyway... same to you, huh? I'm not fragile in the slightest... feel free to let loose and give your fans a show!!"

Although the fight then officially starts, Terry's advance is clearly not aggressive. He approaches Abigail and then extends a fist for a dap. Some people might not bother to do such a respectful honor to a person who looks like the Vroom Machine, or might think he'd merely smash them in response... but he seems to have no such doubts, himself. Abigail might be a simple man, but he's a fairly good judge of character; if there's not a reason to rage, he doubts the hulk will do it on a dime!

"Let's get started...!!" Terry then slams his fists together, before the air seems to hum. His chi unleashes, a billow like warm air rippling out across the broad stage and even sending the fabric and hair of the distant crowd swooshing backwards. He shifts from foot to foot, measuring up Abigail. This is someone who might barely feel it if he doesn't go all out from the onset...

Terry then suddenly leaps through the air. He spirals once, a fashion meant to confuse and disorient the opponent. His right arm rears back, muscles bulging in a flash of tendons as orange ignites in his closed fist and ripples down his forearm. "POWER..." He then drops towards Abigail, striking out ferociously to slam it into the other warrior's solar plexus. "DUNK!!" Although this might not look too flashy... he's still a practitioner of Hakkyokuseiken! Chi techniques to greatly empower the body -- although he's built like a heavyweight boxer, even this full-force punch might not do much to Abigail... but that orange glove of chi would magnify it many times over, hopefully enough for him to feel it!

COMBATSYS: Abigail endures Terry's Power Dunk.

Terry            0/-------/----===|====---\-------\0          Abigail

Oh it does something indeed. That chi coupled with that strength creates a combo that puts Abigail at an immediate disadvantage and as the fist comes in he ultimately ends up simply bracing his gigantic body and allowing it to land with the full explosive force of its blow and enflamed chi bursting everywhere and sparking off of the giants form as Terry's fist lands home.

And yet, despite being rocked, he stays upright and though he bends backwards in a recoil, his immense body holds its ground and he ends up simply grimacing and then grinning.

"Augh..Hey..not bad!! Looks like you do have some horsepower!"

And with that the giant suddenly launches into a lunging leap that brings him up into the air over Terry as the other man recovers from his first attack. He actually manages a full rotation when in the air and then comes back down with both of his huge hands gripping one another for a double fisted haymaker that comes down from above.

COMBATSYS: Terry just-defends Abigail's Giant Flip!

[\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ///////////////////////       ]
Terry            0/-------/----===|====---\-------\0          Abigail

There's not many people who can keep their footing entirely after taking one of Terry's more amped-up signature moves. He puts his entire body weight into it, letting out almost a roar before he pushes back and lands in a light crouch right in front of Abigail. But it's clear that he didn't stagger the other man in the slightest! The hulk had already been preparing an attack of his own, and he's in the middle of launching forward by the time Terry has recovered!

But there's no fear or hesitation in his eyes. No, there's a clear expectant thrill and grin. Orange flame ignites once more, closing one fist and then grasping his own wrist. Knowing a traditional defense is pointless, Terry instead whirls, as if swinging a baseball bat--!!


The two fists hit each other dead on. The sound makes people wince for a hundred meters, and for a split second Terry causes even Abigail to pause. Of course, he can't stop that swing... but he DOES deflect it. Abigail's fists slam into the ground right to Terry's side, shattering the concrete and reinforced stone of the arena like it were clay. "Ow...!! That had some pepper!" Terry winces, but he's settled right before Abigail's large frame, and isn't keen to let some badly throbbing fists get in his way!

He then spins in place, building up inertial force. Throughout, he gathers up another well of orange energy. Then hops up slightly, twisting it around to slam his fist this time towards Abigail's jaw, once more using his own chi to try and ramp it enough to even make the scion of muscle feel it!! "POWER CHARGE!!"

COMBATSYS: Abigail blocks Terry's Power Charge.

Terry            0/-------/----===|=====--\-------\0          Abigail

"Hey what the--"

One does not simply stop Abigail's fist with ones own..unless one is Terry Bogard. It's enough to surprise him and impress him, but then the onslaught continues and Abigail's assault craters the ground and even throws him off balance briefly as he recoils.

By the time he recovers, Terry's attack is incoming and Abigail fully spins to meet it. This time, the favor is returned. His massive fist raises and his hand opens up and the Power Charge slams home into it with a a loud meaty thud that reverberates through the area violently. Abigail's huge arm bends backwards but then holds steady as his fingers close around the fist like the legs of some massive tarantula wrapping about a smaller prey.

"Oooh yeah!!" he roars before suddenly bringing the arm up in an almost dismissive tossing gesture that one might use to casually flick a small object up into the air. In this case, however, it is a largely built human male that Abigail is intending or hurtling straight into the air so high he can see over the tops of nearby amusement park structures..and then back down towards the earth where the potential fall is sure to do some damage.

COMBATSYS: Terry dodges Abigail's Bay Area Sunrise.

Terry            0/-------/----===|=====--\-------\0          Abigail

Stopping Abigail's fist... Terry wouldn't go so far as to say he did THAT. Nudging it aside took everything he had! And he's not sure he's going to try that again -- even with his grounded stance and decades of mastery, he was a split second from thinking he had made a terrible mistake against THAT much horsepower! His attempt to just punch Abigail turns out to be a mistake. "Oof..." He dances backwards, feeling like he just wasted a lot of effort. Okay, yeah. He'll need to wear his chi if he wants to even stagger this behemoth!

Fingers dig into Terry's shirt, and the main saving grace is how strong Abigail is. The man launches backwards, but there's a terrible RIPPPPP before Abigail sends a flutter of white fabric behind, leaving the Hungry Wolf's chest bared. "Whoa...!" He's still staggered by the near miss, seeming to want to put some distance between himself and Abigail now. A slow exhale mists heated steam from his lips, before Terry brings up his cocked right arm and then twists, slamming it into the ground. "ROUND WAVE!!"

A great billow of orange chi ripples up, splitting the ground as it aims to impact in a significant explosion against Abigail's legs. He's still trying to figure out a good approach, when a full-force hit barely gave him pause and he feels like a single solid hit will break his everything...!!

COMBATSYS: Abigail just-defends Terry's Round Wave!

Terry            0/-------/----===|=====--\-------\0          Abigail

A surprise escape, to be sure. Abigail looks at the torn shred of shirt in his hand and blinks a few times before tossing it aside. Hn. Lucky. That's a first." he rumbles to himself before fully committing his attention to Terry once again. His lips purse in annoyance at the sight of the chi based attack once more coming forth.

"Man..moreothat..hadou..sakiyo..hakkuyu...whatsits.." he grumbles though a sudden bought of inspiration and instinct causes himself to brace against the incoming assault.

The blast wave erupts into him as his huge arms turtle and his massive body crouches low. Muscles swell as he pushes back against the force and then he suddenly straightens up and splays both of his arms out to the side, chest blasting out as well and dispersing the blast wave on either side of him from the shockwave that erupts out from his sudden movements.

"Kicking it up to a higher gear! It's time for MAX POWER!" he thunders as his skin reddens and his inflated muscles seem to get even -larger-. His own shirt strains and then begins to violently rip apart from his expanding body. The tires on his arms straining and then splitting apart as his physique gets impossibly more gigantic.


[ \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  /////////////////////////     ]
Terry            0/-------/----===|=======\=------\1          Abigail

That's another first for Terry... someone seeming to simply flex so hard that the massive dispersal of air breaks apart his chi! Maybe if he had properly mastered the reppuken, it would have survived being stressed like that... he compensated with raw power, and he's not against somewhere where that counts for much. "Crap..." He reaches up to draw the back of his hand across his forehead, beginning to skip from foot to foot and bringing up his fists once more. "Think you're right... we've warmed up the crowd a bit, wouldn't you say? Neither of us are going to go down easy... means we'd better TRULY go all out!"

He then skips forward, advancing on the preparing Abigail. All that's done is his respect increased; he's still not backing down from the monstrously strong opponent! Ducking low, he then twists around, twisting and pressing his toe into the arena floor to brace himself. "HYAH!" Leveraging a fierce sidekick aimed at Abigail's side, trying to stagger the man slightly!

COMBATSYS: Abigail fails to interrupt Medium Kick from Terry with Ontario Drop.

[ \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  /////////////////////         ]
Terry            0/-------/---====|=======\-------\0          Abigail

"VROOOOMM!!" is all Abigail says in response as if he's temporarily forgotten how to speak. He pounds his chest thunderously. Each blow shaking the area from the sheer force of the impact. He then crouches low and as Terry comes in..attempts to leap upward with a drop kick using legs that make trees look like toothpicks..

And he misses completely. "Vroom?"

Terry's kick comes landing in solidly on the giant and Abigail ends up pushed to the side where he goes crashing into the ground solidly, once more shaking the earth but this time in a less then impressive manner.

It was a simple juke, but an effective one. Those kung-fu motions really pay off... Terry seemed like he was going to get much further, only to end up stretching out his entire body in that long kick, leaning away. From the sound of the air rushing past where the bulk of his body is, and Terry's large eyes, he's very happy for the bit of luck. "Jeez... you're damn solid! I'd have most people on their knees by now, but you're just getting started!!" He shifts around, trying to find the side of Abigail's huge frame while he's still recovering from the disorientation of the miss and lovetap of a kick, to twist around in a fierce, close-fisted attack towards his side, below the ribs; an area where dense muscle and raw size won't completely shield someone from a hit! "So far, you're not letting me down!"

COMBATSYS: Abigail blocks Terry's Fierce Punch.

[ \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ///////////////////           ]
Terry            0/-------/---====|=======\-------\1          Abigail

Comical miss or no, Abigail is back up on his feet from a fast roll and then push back up. He -is- a champion fighter after all and so when he turns towards Terry and the fist is coming in the behemoth has enough time to rear back and bring a massive forearm up to blunt the force of the hit. He feels a little chagrined at how this has gone so far but Terry is just so gosh-darn-friendly and polite about the beat down that for some reason he can't get legitimately angry yet.

"Yeah?? I think my engine needs some fine tunin' though. Maybe I fought you to soon after Mr. Howard..."

Wuh oh. But he might not give Terry enough time to process that as he suddenly spins, going into a full rotation while roaring, "KABOOM!"

One massive back fist is swinging like a falling steel girder.. Hit or no, he continues the rotation by bringing his other arm around in a thunderous upper cut.

COMBATSYS: Terry interrupts Abi Twist from Abigail with Rising Tackle.

[     \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ///////////////               ]
Terry            1/-------/=======|=======\====---\1          Abigail

Again, Terry strikes with all his force, and for the first time in his life it feels like all his strength just isn't enough. He can see how far he has to go, still... there's people in this world more unique and wild then he ever thought! A smart move, looking up the former contender was well worth it. " fought Geese...?" There's a mixed expression at first, a hint of flame, then he laughs. "Not many people got the guts to try that!! People called me mad. I know he didn't get a free win, right?!"

And then, Terry backflips. The first fist slams through the air, as Terry coils up. Then explodes into a spiraling corkscrew kick, spinning madly. "RISING TACKLE!!" It hits Abigail right in the chin, before the uppercut strikes Terry right in the ribs. It's the first truly clean hit that Abigail's managed, even if it wasn't quite full; and there's a "Hrrrnk!!" noise as he's sent almost two meters diagonally upwards, trailing smoke. He twists and writhes, landing in a crouch with a wince, grasping his side where it landed. "...if that's a glancing blow, I'm kinda curious what a REAL one'd feel like, now...!!"

The blow rocks Abigail and the behemoth staggers, nearly tilting over like an uprooted sequoia and only pausing long enough to slam a single foot down to recover his balance. The pavement cracks under the pressure of his stomp and he veers forward again, stars flashing infront of his gaze before clearing up and revealing Terry before him.

He grimaces..his grin a little harder to maintain now. Good cheer or no, it's time to turn this tide or look like a fool so far as he measures such things.

"I got a business to run. I don't give out free rides.." he grunts before grinning full toothed and surging in, "No discounts except on special days!"

His has a sudden burst of speed that brings him in on Terry far faster then a brute his size should be able to move. A single fist comes up, hurtling for Terrys mid section to intend to lift him fully off the ground from the force of its blow--

COMBATSYS: Abigail knocks away Terry with Abigail Special.

[                \\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ///////////////               ]
Terry            1/<<<<<<</<<<<<<<|-------\-------\0          Abigail

Terry would suddenly find himself a human boxing speed ball as Abigail's other fist comes up in a rolling boxing punch for two strikes and the his other arm comes up for two more rolling strikes then back again and then again, each blow hitting with boulder pulverizing force as the behemoth roars, "ORA, ORA, ORA, ORA, ORA!!!"

At the end of all of that is a final blow as Abigail lunges around and swings a single fist in a wide arcing punch intending on sending Terry hurtling away.

"Did I not give you enough incentive for the full show...?!" Terry says, before the rush forward takes him off guard. Only Abigail can clearly see it. He doesn't try to defend; instead, Terry rushes as well. Orange shell briefly flickering around him. "C'MON, C'MON!! Gimme all you got!!"

That was a mistake. The fist strikes down overhead, and just pancakes Terry into the ground. He's solid... a dense wall of muscle. He said he wasn't fragile, and that seems to be true. Caught and lifted, he begins to resist way too late from the apparent daze. Only to get a storm of attacks leveraged upon his torso, spasming him in place. The last strike hits Terry clean, hat smacked off his head and fluttering down to land in the arena floor as he goes pinwheeling away and slams outside the ring, kicking up a big cloud of dust!!

But a few seconds later, a shadow pushes up to his feet. It lurches sideways for a few moments, before Terry Bogard strides out, waving it away. He's blood down his nose, a split lip, and the remants of his shirt were obliterated to show a bruised torso... but he's still not down. "Okay... that's in my top five moves... but. You the same as me? Not many get up after that, huh?" He crouches to pick up his hat and yank it snug back upon his head. "Fine... I'll show you what I can do, too. Sound fair?!"

Terry then focuses, dipping forward the bill of his cat. "ARE YOU OKAY...?" The crowd begins to cheer, recognizing what he's preparing. He ignites with what seems to be orange fire, bulging out his muscles slightly as he clenches his right fist slowly. Energy begins to hum and focus, his fist nearly blinding to look upon.

A split second later, and he's gone from meters away to right in front of Abigail, kicking up a storm of breaking arena and dust. A single punch is then twisted, aiming to hit Abigail right in his core; the stomach. Where he should be the most solid, and most durable. But every nuance of his technique, training, experience and chi makes it a massive blow, trying to fold Abigail over it.


And then all of that power he used to reinforce his power and speed erupts out, a massive fountain of chi burning orange to try and blow Abigail backwards, shaking the very ground and making those in the stands jump almost an inch off the ground, distant car alarms beginning to wail and shriek as some of the nearby rides have the earthquake sensors tripped and lock abruptly in place.


COMBATSYS: Terry issues a challenge!!

Terry            0/-------/--<<<<<|-------\-------\0          Abigail

"Huh!" Abigail looks at his fist and then at the approaching Terry. He blinks a few times and then his grin returns, eyes wild and teeth gritted. He reaches up and rips off the tattered remains of his shirt fully revealing his freakish torso, streaked with oil smears. When did he find time to work on car engines when in Southtown? Who knows?? It's Abigail!

"YEAH I'M OKAY!!" he yells in answer, as if it was a question meant to be answered. "It's a DEAD HEAT!"

And then Terry is suddenly on him. The wild grin on his face seems to grow even bigger just before he is visually swallowed from sight by the massive chi explosion and the roar of flames and spray of concrete and dust. It literally looks like a bomb just went off and wiped him clear off the map and for a few seconds that ..may be the case?

Except no! A massive hand plunges forward through the dust cloud to reach for Terry's waist to grasp for it intending on hauling him up. As the debris cloud parts it reveals the body of the behemoth. Scorched and weathered and pushed back a few paces but upright and unharmed via some sort brutal instinct that kicked in. A split second unlocking of the potential the goliath has but will never truly consistently reach..

"Abigaiiiiiiiill" he begins roaring before trying to hurtle Terry into the air once more..and then swing around with a wild blow to catch him on the way down should he succeed. "SMASH!!!"

COMBATSYS: Terry blocks Abigail's Abigail Smash.

Terry            1/------</<<<<<<<|==-----\-------\0          Abigail

Were this earlier in the fight, with less time clashing with Abigail, Terry'd be a lot more surprised. They both might have emerged from a cloud of smoke and debris, but it's clear that Abigail is the one who's better off in the deal. Things have closed now; they're in the final stretch, and it's no longer any guarantee who's going to win! Of course, the crowd's going wild, as Terry competes with someone who's little more then a force of nature!

Forearms cross, orange energy reinforcing it before Abigail's fist slams in and sends Terry skywards. A grimace goes through him, before he twists and balls up, knees brought in for the overhead. He is bounced like a volleyball, hitting the ground on his back and making a sizeable dent before bouncing up in a tight spin and landing in a crouch, skidding back. "Hah...! This is the kinda fight I wanted!! Let's keep it HEATED UP!!"

He then surges with power once more, twisting around. And then he slams his fist down, before a huge eruption of chi almost fifteen feet high erupts beneath Abigail, trying to drive him backwards. "TRINITY...!" His right arm rears back and slams again. A second explosion, just as big, aims to slam into Abigail a second time. "GEYSERRRRR!!" And with a last punch, he finishes with a last explosion to overtake Abigail and send him hopefully staggering backwards!!

COMBATSYS: Abigail barely endures Terry's Trinity Geyser.

Terry            0/-------/-------|=======\-------\1          Abigail

Two bursts of inspiration and extreme muscle power in a row are two too many. Abigail has grimaces, pulling together some vestiges of defensive might and grit - but it is not enough to truly blunt the force that erupts into him again and this time he -is- finally knocked from his feet. The blast wave lifts him up and sends him tumbling backwards into a roll that he arrests just before reaching the outer edge of the combat zone.. Burnt, blistered and wobbling as if he's ready to go toppling over.

But something urges him on and he manages to pull back up to his feet even as flames continue to trail from the top of his maple leaf shaped mohawk.

"Urgh! Fine! We're going across the finish line then, Terry! You ready!?" Because ready or not..he's coming.

Like a semi truck, Abigail comes charging in and then he lunges at Terry - bringing a massive arm up and then down towards the man intending to crush him to the ground with force that will crater the ground around the durable Wolf.

But that is not enough. His massive foot raises and he looms forward in an attempt to bring his full weight down ontop of the man if he remains prone and literally crush him further into the ground whilst passing over head in a brutal, brutish assault.

COMBATSYS: Abigail successfully hits Terry with Hit and Run.

Terry            0/-------/--=====|-------\-------\0          Abigail

Terry looks to be hanging in there, too; panting a bit, opening and closing his fists as he stares intently towards Abigail. Definite respect there...! He isn't someone who goes after fights hoping for an easy victory; he wants his spirit to burn, and he got everything he bargained for! He tries to block, but... this is an opponent that needed all his strength and chi. He can't summon the latter, and the blow drives Terry down to his knees. Then a foot impacts him right between the shoulders, driving the Wolf down further. His knees and hands burst through stone, but he doens't go flat; trembling, twitching, Abigail never quite manages to force him flat.

"...HAAA!!" Suddenly he summons the final vestiges of his power, and bursts up, driving the foot off him. Before he launches into a rising chi-infused knee, to smack right upon Abigail's face! Trying to stun him, while he goes higher and brings up a orange, burning fist. Dropping straight down, he tries to hit it right upon Abigail's face, and then drive the back of his head into the ruined arena floor with an eruption of orange energy. "NOT GOING DOWN... THAT EASILY!!"

COMBATSYS: Terry has reached second wind!

That seems to do it then! The pillar of chi, the force of the blow, the tenacity of Terry. All of it adds up to -just- enough to send the giant over and his head slamming like a meteor into the pavement itself. THe ground shakes and sunders as Abigail topples..

But he's got one more effort yet. Both of his massive arms come down to brace against the ground and then they shove, pushing him upwards and then lunging at the falling Terry to try and catch him just before the end of it all, "My engine has one more VROOM left!" he roars before thrusting his massive chest out like a battering ram. His approach would literally fill Terry's vision up with his immensity as he risks a full on impact with the giant.

But hit or miss, Abigail then tumbles forward and goes landing, face and chest first into the ground, adding one final Abigail shaped imprint into the battle field.

COMBATSYS: Abigail can no longer fight.

Terry is doubled over, panting on his knees. He then looks up, looking utterly shocked when Abigail's still coming at him! It took all his tenacity and will; this has nothing to do with physique, Terry's burning spirit is keeping him upright! An attempt to bring up his forearms, before the blow strikes him dead on. Terry is launched flying backwards, hitting the ground and bouncing twice before rolling to a stop.

"It looks like it's a--" the announcer begins, before Terry abruptly rolls over. One hand, then the other, smacks into the ground. With a growl he forces himself upright, getting to his feet, doubled over with arms dangling. Before thrusting both of his fists into the air with a cry of defiance.

"...!! TERRY WINS!!" Well, even if a slight breeze might make him collapse. He has trouble standing on shaky knees, rubbing blood from his mouth again and spitting to the side. "Can see... why that's the former League Champ!!" he says, turning to adjust his hat and begin a stagger towards the medics to touch him off. It's a hell of a big world out there... and now he knows just how far he is from the pinnacle!

COMBATSYS: Terry wanders on to find the next challenge.
