WATCH TRAILER: ‘Robot Combat League’

If the UFC and Transformers have taught us anything about pop culture, it’s that people love robots and they love fighting. Now, if you combine those two things, what you’ve got is a hard-hitting punch of entertainment. And that’s exactly what Syfy’s Robot Combat League delivers.

It’s a weekly gladiator match-up between larger than life robots, controlled by their “robo-jockeys.” Finally, something on television that will satisfy man’s robotic bloodlust. The new series will feature twelve teams consisting of a fighter (a “robo-jockey”) and a robotics engineer (a “robo-tech”) using a high-tech exo-suit that translates their movements to their robot. It’s equal parts innovative engineering and old fashioned boxing.

The series is hosted by WWE superstar Chris Jericho and commentated by Fight Day co-host Dave Farra. Look for the metallic action to begin on Tuesday, February 26 at 10/9c on Syfy.
