It’s not confirmed if the Monkey King will enter the match in August 2017. And the location of the US-Japan duel still remains a secret.

Quartz - China now has its own giant robot and it just challenged a US team to a fight.

Yow! China has a fighting mech too! Called 'Monkey King' and they want in on the Japan-US fight!

First rule of robot fight club, is you do not talk about robot fight club!

Tuesday, Tuesday, Tuesday!

The U.S. and Japan teams have since spent two years fortifying and weaponizing their robots, and now the duel will finally happen. Well, technically, it’s already happened: It appears that showing the fight live wasn’t feasible (there would be too much downtime for repairs and resets), so over the course of several days the robots battled each other at an old warehouse in Japan, with cameras rolling to capture all the action.

Tonight the edited footage will be streamed on Twitch at 7 p.m. PT, and posted on YouTube and Facebook immediately after. You can watch a teaser below:

They have a 2-inch cannon! I want to see the chainsaw arm myself!

This is so crazy, lol.

Can't wait to see how this takes shape.

And I guess a league will be forming soon since more people are getting in on the action (China)??

How cool.

Yeah, China wants in too. I'm not certain how a league will form but first things first: the fight

This is funny, cool, crazy, over hyped, and looks like fun! Endgadet has this video up (almost 30 mins.). There is a one minute intro. I can't watch the whole thing right now so will leave it here for future watching at some future time.

But for those that can...

I watched the battles last night, and although they were lackluster I did enjoy it.

I had to post in the live stream comments stuff like "This is the beginning of the biggest sport of the future! MechWarrior IRL!", lol.

Sadly the future versions of these things will be used militarily and not for just sporting fun.

I have no doubt the military versions already exist and are likely really scary.

What I usually tell people (jokingly):

"With the money we're wasting on the military, they better have these things!"
