Below, check out an all-new up close and personal first look at Syfy's new series Robot Combat League titiled 'Blood, Sweat & Gears.' The series premieres tomorrow, Feb. 26 at 10/9c!

A gripping new reality series which reinvents gladiatorial combat for the 21st century, "Robot Combat League" will feature tournament-style battles each week between eight-feet tall, state-of-the-art humanoid robots controlled by human "robo-jockeys". Hosting the series is Chris Jericho, the wildly popular WWE wrestler and multifaceted performer.

This extraordinary new series will feature twelve teams consisting of a fighter (a "robo-jockey") and a robotics engineer (a "robo-tech") from myriad backgrounds including a race car driver, an Olympic athlete, a National Guard helicopter pilot along with a mix of professional fighters and software engineers. Each team is paired with its own unique robot and will fight in a first-of-its kind competition using a high-tech exo-suit that translates their movements to their robot. Each fight consists of three rounds of intense action, with the winning team advancing in the competition.

In his role as host, Jericho will set up each week's fight and provide viewers with a play-by-play commentary of the fighting action.

The robots of the "Robot Combat League" were designed and created by robotics expert, Mark Setrakian, a leader in the sport of robotic combat. In his distinguished career, Setrakian has developed life-saving robotic systems, and pioneered cutting-edge creature effects, animatronics and control technology for such films as Men In Black, The Grinch and Hellboy. Setrakian combines a keen study of biology with innovative engineering to create robots with uncanny organic movement, earning his reputation as the man who brings machines to life.

Robot Combat League is produced by Smart Dog Media, with Craig Plestis serving as executive producer.
