At another point, Buck's spaceship crash landed on Thanzanon, where he was forced into mortal combat. There, he started a relationship with the queen Garima. Not wanting to hurt her sister, he threw a contest which he lost on purpose to run away to Dartayus with his lover. However, they were both seperated from each other when their worlds needed them.
When Konane was forced to lose on purpose to El Cura in order to protect the timeline, Mona Wu made a parallel to Buck's situation in her favorite Rebecca Silver book, Heatwaves: An Erotic Space Odyssey.
DC's Legends of Tomorrow
