Ah. The demon was on his back. But only for the moment. Optimum heard the fans cheers, boos, and jeers at a fevered pitch however he paid them no mind whatsover. He was not an amateur and would be a champion someday no matter how many demons he had to lay to waste. The mere thought of him NOT having any kind of championship gold around his waist infuriated him to the point that he gave him the extra adrenaline he needed to swiftly get to his feet before the, now larger and much more dangerous, demon did.
With sweat dripping down his face swiftly circled behind the demon as he began to rise. His eyes were cold and uncaring. He knew that in order to be victorious you needed to be more vicious and cut-throat than the demons themselves. Most of them were relying on him being some kind of a joke or a push-over. Well they are were in for a big surprise and there would be no better teacher for them than experience. The experience of humilation after being defeated at his hands.
Killborn stood up. He staggered abit, but he was up. Immediately when the demon did not see Optimum before him he went to go turn to the backside of him and at the very instance before his actual body turned but his neck had BEGUN to turn he was taken down by a stiff chop block that sent him crumbling down to one knee.
Optimum hated the fact this demon was a worthy opponent but his refusal to stay down would make him a stronger and overall better warrior in the ring. Killborn sneered at the man clad in white and used his lengthy arms to unleash a quick but lethal knifehand chop to the chest of Optimum which sent him backwards into the ropes....BUT all in one fluid motion he didn't fight the momentum of being sent backwards by the strike he rode it's waves and slung himself directly back at the demon and slide forward with a wicked headbutt to the face of his nemesis. The headbutt was one of his favorite strikes that he mastered in Japan. It was seldom used in the states which he knew, at some point, would pay dividends for him in the ring. All but a few opponents would be prepared for how dangerously accurate he was with it and the power he put behind it.
Killburn was now holding himself up with one hand on the mat. This was unreal! With a loud, angry, roar Optimum charged forward but was met with a fierce Double Axe Handle that sent him flying backwards yet again. Now the demon was close to rising back up to his feet. He had to do something and something quick. Instinct took over and Optimum, wait a second or two, then charged forward with a deadly SHINING WIZARD to the face of the demon who, halfway through the move, was able to take his hand and slam Optimum down to the mat just as the impact of the move connected!
Now both men lay on the mat as the crowd began to go wild. Optimum was momentarily out of breath and Killburn was seeing about 5 Optimums instead of the one laying directly across from him....
