Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
“Oh no!” The middle-aged man was terrified. In that split second, he had no time to dodge or even counter the attack with another move. He could only raise both hands to protect his body.
In the next breath, a shiny saber radiance slashed past the middle-aged man's hands.
A loud explosion sounded, containing such power that it was like the roaring river and causing the middle-aged man to shake violently.
The formidable force instantly split the middle-aged man's hands open and was followed by the shiny, slashing saber radiance.
A blood red fountain shot up several feet into the air as the middle-aged man's body was cut into half.
His body fell backward and his blood dyed the fighting ring red.
Li Feng let out a sigh of relief when he saw that the middle-aged man was dead. This guy wasn't strong and yet he had been unexpectedly difficult to defeat.
Li Feng had no compa.s.sion for the man. Anyone who dared to step onto the fighting ring should be prepared for death.
Li Feng was no longer the same person he was back at Gale Island. He had already grown accustomed to killing and being cold-blood.
“Damm it! I lost the bet again!”
“This boy indeed has extraordinary physical strength. I misjudged him!”
“Fortunately, I only put down 5,000 Upper Spiritual Stones!”
People at the spectator stand were whining as almost n.o.body had bet on Li Feng winning.
Su Mo smiled and nodded secretly.
Although there were many drawbacks to Li Feng focused purely on physical strength cultivation, once his Archean Dragonesque Elephant Skill reached the 16th level and above, he could possess the strength of a Martial King. Then, these drawbacks would no longer be a cause for concern.
With his physical strength in the Martial King Realm, the body would generate “Qi of force”, which was also known as Qi force.
Then he would be able to fly easily.
After the battle ended, the judge disabled the formation covering the fighting ring, and Li Feng stepped down from the ring.
Li Feng knew that it would be easy for him to defeat a Lv 4 True Darkness Realm martial artist but it would be a little dangerous to fight a Lv 5 True Darkness Realm martial artist!
“How many Spiritual Stones did you bet?” Li Feng asked Su Mo with a smile after he returned to the spectators stand.
“50,000 Upper Grade Spiritual Stones!” Su Mo said.
Li Feng nodded. 50,000 Upper Spiritual Stones was not a small sum. Although the maximum bet was 100,000 Upper Spiritual Stones, one had to consider the risks involved.
No one could be sure if that middle-aged man had the strength to fight above his level.
“Su Mo, aren't you going now?” Li Feng asked.
As Li Feng posed his question, a young man clad in a purple long robe with gold tr.i.m.m.i.n.gs not far from them couldn't help but glance over at Su Mo.
No one knew what the young man was thinking as his expression did not give anything away.
Su Mo smiled slightly, stood up, and said, “Since we are here to earn Spiritual Stones, we shouldn't waste time!”
“All of you should place a bet of 100,000 Upper Spiritual Stones each on my upcoming battles!” Su Mo said, then flew toward the fighting ring.
100,000 Upper Spiritual Stones was the maximum bet allowed for the True Darkness Realm battles, and Su Mo wanted his two fellows to place the maximum bet in each of his battles.
The middle-aged man's corpse had just been removed from the fighting ring, and Su Mo appeared on the fighting ring in a flash.
From the spectators stand, the young man in purple smiled when he saw Su Mo step up onto the ring.
“I hope you can win more rounds!” He murmured.
In the fighting ring, Su Mo scanned the area and shouted clearly, “All those of Lv 1 True Darkness Realm cultivation, come here if you wish to fight!”
As soon as Su Mo finished speaking, a burly man flew into the fighting ring.
“Your fate is now in my hands. I hope you'll be able to last for more than a few moves!” The burly man said with a sneer, bloodthirsty evil spirit in his eyes.
The formation was closed over the fighting ring, and the umpire on the referees' stage announced, “Now place your bets!”
Many people started to place their bets following the umpire's announcement, but many were also quietly studying Su Mo and the burly man.
If they could accurately gauge how strong these two were, they would be able to win some Spiritual Stones.
Hong Qingxuan and Li Feng, however, each placed a 100,000 Upper Spiritual Stones bet instantly without any hesitation.
They knew without a doubt that this was the kind of battle that Su Mo would win. If they could place a bet of one trillion Upper Spiritual Stones, they would have done so.
The great thing about the Death Arena was that martial artists did not need to hand over the actual Spiritual Stones when placing their bets. Their wins or losses would be ultimately tallied and settled when they left the Arena.
Therefore, one could place bets even without Spiritual Stones.
Of course, if one was not able to pay off their losses before they left the Arena, they would need to work for their Arena to clear their debts.
It wasn't just Li Feng and Hong Qingxuan who placed their bets immediately, but the young man clad in a gold-rimmed purple robe did the same.
He also put down 100,000 Upper Spiritual Stones on Su Mo winning!
In the fighting ring, Su Mo looked at the burly man, shook his head, and said, “I hope you'll be born with a better judgement ability in your next life!”
“What?” The burly man was stunned. Before he fully comprehended Su Mo's words, a powerful five-colored fist radiance shot toward him.
There was a loud explosion before all was still again in the fighting ring.
Silence fell upon the Arena as everyone stared at the scene in front of them in shock. There was nothing left of the burly man in the fighting ring.
He had been smashed to pieces with just one punch.
The arena was silent for a few moments, and the crowd burst into an uproar.
“d.a.m.n, isn't this guy formidable? He killed and equally ranked opponent with one punch!”
“How powerful! I misjudged him!”
“Darn, it's over already! I haven't even placed my bet!”
The arena was filled with exclamations from the crowd, and many martial artists cursed and swore.
Even the umpires in the Arena were stunned and it took a little before they moved to disable the formation.
“Is there a Lv 2 True Darkness Realm martial artist that wishes to fight?” Su Mo asked as he glanced around the Arena. His expression didn't even change after killing his opponent.
The whole Arena fell silent, and many Lv 2 True Darkness Realm martial artists looked at him contemplatively.
Judging from the strength Su Mo displayed earlier, an average Lv 2 True Darkness Realm martial artist would not be an equal match for him.
“How interesting! I feel like getting some action now!” A young man in black stood up, his face cold. He flew up and landed in the fighting ring.
“What? Hai Kun is going to fight!”
“Hai Kun is going to win for sure!”
“Let's quickly place our bets! We mustn't let this opportunity slip by!”
The crowd was surprised to see the young man in black step into the fighting ring. In quick succession, they all placed their bets on the young man in black winning.
They were all too familiar with this young man in black. His name was Hai Kun and he was quite well-known across Devilish Land.
He was a martial artist whose sabre was tainted with the blood of many, who killed ruthlessly without blinking an eye.
It was said that he used to be a genius disciple from a small Sect, but he was expelled from that sect because he raped and murdered a fellow Junior Sister. Since then, he could often be seen in Devilish Land.
However, despite his rotten character, he was extremely strong and could hold his own against the weaker Lv 3 True Darkness Realm martial artists.
