Return of the Street Fighter (殺人拳2 Satsujin ken 2, UK title: Blood of the Dragon?) is a 1974 martial arts film and the second in a series starting with The Street Fighter starring Sonny Chiba. In this sequel, Martial artist Takuma (Terry) Tsurugi returns to take on a Yakuza family that may be embezzling money from charities to finance their own operations. Both the police and the Yakuza find themselves battling Tsurugi, but Tsurugi's fight ultimately is with the mob, and he concentrates on them.

The film was initially released on home video by MGM/CBS Home Video and later by New Line Home Video.
