Goku and Vegeta continue to tag-team Jiren, but despite all the attacks the throw at him (including another Final Flash from Vegeta), Jiren still isn’t even sweating. Over in the bleachers, Kuririn is freaked out by this, but Gohan trusts Goku and Vegeta will manage to win. Beerus even congratulates Gohan for doing well (and actually calls him by name for a change).
Realizing 17’s strategy, Toppo breaks away and vows to defeat him right away to protect his universe, firing a tremendous ki beam towards 17, who counters with a beam of his own. The two beams struggle against each other, but before long Toppo’s beam starts pushing 17 towards the edge of the arena. Before 17 can be ringed out though, Freeza (still in Golden mode) appears and blasts Toppo from behind. He thinks 17 has been playing around too much, and steps in to finish Toppo off himself.
…Freeza continues to fire at Toppo, who is still stuck in his beam struggle against 17 and unable to turn around and counterattack. Growing bored with his defenseless opponent, Freeza prepares a finishing blow (though he wants to make sure not to kill him), which damages Toppo so much that he finally loses the beam struggle and is enveloped by 17’s blast. It looks as if Toppo has been defeated, but Whis sees that he has not materialized in the bleachers, meaning he’s still in the game.
