Plot Synopsis

Hosted and judged by WWE superstar Jay 'Christian' Reso, each one-hour episode of KNIGHT FIGHT targets a specific time-period and features six new fighters who customize era-specific armor, garb and weaponry to engage in numerous battle rounds, seeing who has the skill and strength to win and walk away with $10,000 and a spot in the season finale. This blood sport is a full-contact armored combat league where modern-day warriors battle in over eighty pounds of plated armor with real steel weapons. Reso is joined by expert judges Andre Sinou, Co-Founder and Creator of the Armored Combat League, and John Clements, Director of the Association for Renaissance Martial Arts. Impressing the judges on the criteria of aggression, technique and defense in each of the following rounds will be no easy feat: the grand melee, three one-minute battles where it is every man for himself; a two on two team melee and a duel where the final two competitors left standing face off in an epic head to head clash. In the series opener, "Vikings vs. Byzantines," six modern-day fighters, specialists in the techniques of armored combat, place both their expertise and bodies on the line as they compete while suited in armor and weaponry of the past. These competitors must first prove their prowess in a six-person Grand Melee using their own personal weapons--whether maces or longswords, axes and scimitars. Four fighters advance and are paired for the Team Melee where they must adopt and adapt to the implements of the Vikings and Byzantine armies of the 10th Century. The winning duo are each given a new imposing weapon, and must face off in a final one-on-one Duel, putting their combat skills to the supreme test. Will they be able to bear the weight of both the armor and the history? Will weapons like the deadly Viking War Mace crush their hopes of winning? Most importantly, which knight will triumph and win $10,000 and entrance into the season-ending Knight Fight Tournament Championship?
On Wednesday, March 13, 2019 at 11pm ET/PT, History premiered the season finale of KNIGHT FIGHT. In the season ender, "Tournament Championship," seven champions face the toughest fight of their lives in the epic culmination of this armored combat tournament. As tough as the competition has been, these apex predators, America's greatest armored combat warriors, have never endured a battle like this. Facing off in a seven-man Grand Melee, one will be eliminated and the six remaining will then fight in a first-ever Three Team Melee. The four who are left standing will fight in a two-on-two Team Melee which decides who will battle in the final Duel. This ultimate Duel will have three Heats, with three ferocious weapons--the fearsome Flamberge, the double-headed Battle Axe, and the two-handed War Mace. Only one man will emerge victorious and walk away with the Knight Fight Tournament Champion's Golden Helm and $20,000.
