The FightEdit

Before the fight, it was revealed that Scott 2 couldn't enter so it withdrew from the competition leaving only Iron-Awe 5, Tough As Nails & Terminal Ferocity to fight it out in the arena.

As the fight started, Tough As Nails tried to grab Terminal Ferocity by the flipper, but Terminal Ferocity retaliated by flipping it away. Terminal Ferocity then seemed to have problems with moving and broke down before Tough As Nails made a move to try and grab and drag it again only to be thrown nearly out the arena by Iron-Awe 5. Tough As Nails tried 3 more times to grab Iron-Awe 5, but the top seed kept flipping the dutch robot away. Iron-Awe 5 threw Tough As Nails twice more before throwing it clean out of the arena. Iron-Awe 5 then attacked Terminal Ferocity before flipping it also out the arena.
