Hero imposed tons of rules on the premise that there would be no way Necro would be able to keep up with him. Instead, Necro fought Hero to a draw (Hero won Round 4, Necro won Round 5), thus forcing Hero into the situation he did not want to find himself in, a Barroom Brawl against Necro Butcher. Necro won, of course.
