Chapter 967 Iron Rider Master
Lu Yu finished another round. After he walked down the ring, he began to think about what Armored Madman had said.
What he said was very important.
Everyone who had gotten first place in this tournament had either gone missing, met with various accidents, or been hunted down by enemies.
These methods were probably all done by the Orlando family.
After all, the entire martial arts tournament was planned by them.
The rewards for first place were too extravagant, so much so that anyone had to participate in this tournament even if they had to take the risk.
Lu Yu returned to the preparation area and continued to wait, watching as more and more contestants went up to start their showdown.
In the VIP seats, Quide looked at Lu Yu with a smirk.
“He’s not bad.”
“Yeah, but this kid seems to be hiding something. He hasn’t displayed his true strength yet.” Mary rolled her eyes and immediately thought of something.
“Should we arrange a strong enemy for him? Let’s test his strength!”
Quide shrugged his shoulders disapprovingly. “As long as he continues to fight, he’ll run into a strong enemy sooner or later.”
“After five or six more rounds, it’ll be the finals. There will be enough people eliminated.”
“I want to see his performance now,” Mary pouted unhappily. “Let’s just arrange directly.”
Hearing this, Quide nodded. “If that’s the case, I’ll arrange for an expert from our family to go up. We’ll probe his strength.”
“Alright, hubby, let’s do it!”
Several rounds of battles continued, and it was finally Lu Yu’s turn to go on stage again.
“Next up is Little Dragon versus Iron Rider Master!”
For a moment, everyone in the audience was shocked.
“Iron Rider Master? Did he participate in this tournament?”
“Yeah, is he even on the list? I don’t remember that.”
“Isn’t he from the Orlando family? Why is he here to participate in the martial arts tournament?”
“Could it be that he saw Little Dragon’s outstanding strength and wanted to test him out personally?”
“It’s not impossible. That’s probably it.”
“The strong like to fight with the strong. This is going to be interesting.”
When Lu Yu went on stage, he heard the voices of the audience around him. He realized that the guy in front of him was from the Orlando family, and he had joined in midway.
It was likely that the Orlando family was targeting him and wanted to test his strength.
Since that’s the case, I’ll let you take a good look at my strength!
Lu Yu clenched his fists and walked toward the person in front of him.
The man in front of him was tall and muscular. He had long black hair and was covered in pieces of metal armor.
However, this armor looked as if it were floating over his body.
He looked at Lu Yu with a disdainful sneer. “So you’re Little Dragon. You don’t look like someone strong.”
“What are you talking about? Bah, you’ll know if it’s true after two moves.”
When Iron Rider Master heard this, he only smiled faintly. “What you said makes a lot of sense. As long as we start fighting, we will know who the stronger one is.”
“However, I will tell you one thing in advance. I’m going to fight a life-and-death battle with you. In other words, only one of us can walk out of this arena alive.”
“I won’t rest until one of us dies!”
Lu Yu laughed. “That’s exactly what I want.”
The audience erupted when they heard this.
A life-and-death battle would be the most exciting and exhilarating of battles.
Both sides had to pay the price of their lives to fight each other. If they were not careful, they might die on the spot.
Anyone would fight with all their might for their own lives.
Such a battle would always be more exciting than others.
For a moment, everyone firmed up and watched the battle between the two intently.
Lu Yu stood in front of Iron Rider Master without a change of expression.
“Your mentality is not bad. You’re about to die, but you’re still so calm.”
“Of course, I’m calm. After all, the one who’s going to die isn’t me. It’s you.”
As soon as he said this, Iron Rider Master’s expression immediately turned ugly.
“Stop your farce. Let me teach you a lesson now!”
With that, he rushed toward Lu Yu.
Just as he rushed out, the metal pieces that were originally stuck to the surface of his body suddenly flew out.
The metal piece burst outward under his control and stabbed toward Lu Yu.
Under his control, these metal pieces were remolded into sharp metal spikes.
These spikes shot toward Lu Yu, each one of them looking deadly.
Seeing this, Lu Yu immediately stretched out his hands and grabbed at the incoming spikes.
Noticing Lu Yu’s reckless behavior, Iron Rider Master laughed.
“You’re really courting death. Are you really grasping my spikes with your bare hands? You’re too naive!”
However, in the next moment, Lu Yu activated his Dragon Shadow skill.
Lu Yu grabbed two spikes and broke them on the spot.
Immediately after, Lu Yu flashed rapidly and grabbed more spikes, one after another, breaking all of them.
In a short while, Lu Yu had a pile of scrap metal beside him.
When Iron Rider Master saw this, he was furious. “You bastard, you’re courting death!”
Five short swords flew out from behind him and stabbed Lu Yu.
Seeing this, Lu Yu did not dodge but just approached him.
He secretly activated his Golden Barrier skill; a barrier of golden light appeared in front of Lu Yu and enveloped him.
A short sword flew over and pierced the Golden Barrier on Lu Yu’s body.
The Iron Rider Master roared in anger. He used all his strength on the flying short sword, trying to break the shield on Lu Yu’s body.
However, the moment the short sword touched Lu Yu’s Golden Barrier, it bounced off and did not cause any damage.
“You’re too weak. I doubt you can even fight back.”
When Iron Rider Master heard this, he instantly flew into a rage out of humiliation. However, all the weapons on his body had been used up, and his iron-controlling ability had lost its effect.
He did not expect that he would be defeated so thoroughly. He did not injure Lu Yu one bit and was about to use up all his trump cards.
“You… Your skin is tough. Since that’s the case, I’ll give it my all!”
He took out a sharp sword from his storage ring.
The blade was light purple, and the hilt was bright amethyst.
The sword looked extraordinary.
Iron Rider Master controlled the sword and prepared to attack Lu Yu.
“This is your trump card? Ridiculous, you’re going to lose!”
