In what episode of Deep Space 9 does Worf fight and defeat Martok?

I am looking for a specific fight scene in which Worf fights and defeats "Martok" using his batliff. I know almost nothing about Star Trek, I'm just trying to track down a scene that is referenced by an interview subject.

According to Memory Alpha, this happened in "Soldiers of the Empire".

Soldiers of the Empire

Except, in the episode description, it appears that it's Martok who "defeats" Worf. Worf lets him win the challenge.

Actually, Soldiers of the Empire had Worf allowing Martok to defeat him. You may be thinking of Apocalypse Rising, which had Worf fighting Gowron, who he thought was a Changeling, but the Changeling turns out to be Martok (or "Martok"), who Sisko then kills. For what it's worth, Worf was using his bat'leth while fighting Gowron.

Soldiers of the Empire could be the episode in question, indeed, but Worf does not defeat Martok and does not use a bat'leth in the battle. Worf lowers his guard to allow himself to be defeated by Martok. They use d'k tahgs in the battle (daggers).

Tacking Into the Wind also has a bat'leth fight (between Worf and Gowron) which Worf wins

There's also Tacking Into the Wind where Worf defeats the Klingon chancellor, Gowron, with a bat'leth. He thereby becomes head of the Klingon Empire, but he lets Martok have the job instead.

Tacking Into the Wind, as 1970s Antihero mentions above, includes a whole lot of glass shattering in that scene as well, if that was what your interview subject referenced.

I'm in the process of watching all of DS9, and Images in the Sand features a battle where Worf defeats Martok in the holosuite, right around the 32 minute mark.
