Once he is comfortable with his skills, the man starts to help out the locals who are terrorized by thugs. Then against his brother's will, he enters in the above mentioned tournament. The final showdown between Van Damme and his nemesis is spectacular. The setting is very traditional and exotic. Both men are wearing skimpy loin cloths. The villain breaks the rules and nearly blinds the good guy. But nothing can stop Van Damme's character from avenging his brother. Soon the bad guy is nearly knocked out and trying to crawl out of the ring. Van Damme goes after him and finishs the job.
