This episode begins with the fight between Risho and Kuwabara underway. Risho is beating the crap out of Kuwabara, who can't even use his spirit sword.
Outside Shizuru, Kayko, Botan and Yukina are trying to get back inside. The demon security guard won't let all four back in, so they show him some human butt kicking. They get chased by more security guards unless they see Toguro. Yukina has flashback to her kidnapping. Toguro, however, lets the four go by. He wants the Urameshi team to win because he wants a rematch with Yusuke, as Sakyo promised.
Eventually Kuwabara get cocky and forces Risho to show his Shinobi strength. Risho is the Master of Earth. He holds up his finger and the ground shakes. Risho uses his Armor of Clay techinique to cover his body with earthen armor. He jumps up in the air and crashes into the ring like a giant meteor. Kuwabara refuses to go down.
Eventually Kuwabara realizes he can't win. He decides to use his life energy like Yusuke did against the final Saint
