Tien breaks Yamcha's leg

Yamcha uses his Wolf Fang Blowing Wind technique, but it has no effect. He lands dozens of punches on Tien Shinhan, but they, also do not seem to work. To everyone's surprise, Yamcha fires a Kamehameha, but Tien deflects it back at him. Yamcha jumps up to avoid it, but Tien is there and kicks him to the ground. Tien comes down hard on Yamcha's leg, breaking it. Once Tien is declared the winner, Puar rushes in and transforms into a flying carpet to transport Yamcha to Papaya Hospital. Everyone heads back to the hotel to await tomorrow's match: Jackie Chun vs. Man-Wolf.
