We see the fight between YHWACH and Yamamoto to the full extent, in which Yamamoto shows his Powerful Bankai Zanka no Tachi and uses it against YHWACH to defeat him one more time as he did in the past (1000 years ago). At the end of the Chapter, he did defeat him, but as we know, YHWACH is a very powerful villain, and he uses his subordinate- Stern bitter “Y” as bait to halt Yamamoto while he was gone to Sosuke Aizen to free him and asks him to join but sadly he refused to join the hand with YHWACH when he came in the battlefield, he stole the Bankai of Yamamoto and used his Quincy Sword to cut Yamamoto in half.
