The battle continues when BattleBots, the extraordinary competitive reality series that has garnered a huge following in the sport of robot combat, returns on AXN this December.
This year’s playing field boasts of contestants representing four continents from around the world. From NASA engineers to expert roboticists, from garage builders to teenage students, and even past competitors, this group of hardcore robot builders will design and build robots that will face off against each other in combat in the elimination rounds until one is crowned champion.
For the first time, audiences will be treated to an enhanced viewing experience with the use of state-of-the-art Onboard Technology and Cameras, which will also provide combat analytics.
Each episode is filled with high energy as viewers will see next generation robots – bigger, faster, and stronger than ever before – designed with new technologies and innovations, and with more destructive weapons, including drones and flying battlebots!
ESPN's Samantha Ponder hosts season two, with expert play-by-play analysis from veteran sports broadcaster Chris Rose and colorful commentary from former UFC fighter Kenny Florian. Alison Haislipreports on the sidelines and ring announcer FaruqTauheed presides inside the arena.
