"Dragon Ball Super" episode 122 is getting more anticipated with each passing minute. The said episode is scheduled for air on January 7, and it means it will be show's first episode of 2018. It is titled “Staking His Pride! Vegeta Challenges the Strongest!!.” Followers of the anime show will have an idea of what to expect from the upcoming episode [VIDEO]. As its title indicates, Vegeta will be in action in this part of "Dragon Ball Super." This will be an action-packed chapter, where fans will witness flashy moves from the warriors of universe 7 and Universe 11.

Episode 122 unveiled

There's still plenty of time left before the release of episode 122, but in the meantime, fans are coming out with their own theories regarding the upcoming chapter of the show.

A number of reasons make it a highly anticipated episode, and the biggest reason could be the battle between Vegeta and Jiren. It is worth mentioning that Universe 7 and Universe 11 will go all out against each other in episode 122. This part of the show will also mark the beginning of the final stage of the Tournament Of Power, which is currently underway in "Dragon Ball Super." Notably, around seventy fighters and eight Universe [VIDEO]s have been erased from it and only two mentioned teams are left in it.

When we talk about the power comparison between U11 and U7, the Jiren led Universe 11 looks strong even though Goku's team has more warriors. The major reason why U11 is strong is Jiren, who is dubbed as the strongest warrior in the Tournament. Vegeta and Goku will fight against Jiren in episode 122.

The preview of the chapter suggests that. One can see Vegeta kicking Jiren in the trailer itself. This clash is expected to continue until at least episode 124 or 125.

Intense battles

Episode 122 is also speculated to feature Vegeta unlocking theUltra Instinct against his opponent. Two more fights will take place in this part of the "Dragon Ball Super." They include Dyspo against Frieza and Gohan/Android 17 vs Toppo.

Dyspo is rumored to annoy members of Universe 7 while Goku and Vegeta are fighting Jiren. This will make Frieza angry and the warrior will go all out against Dyspo. Nothing more is known regarding this battle yet. Meanwhile, fans might witness Android 17 struggling against Toppo in episode 122. It will be interesting to see how Universe 7 will face Universe 11, which is much stronger than they are, even with fewer team members.
