The FightEdit

The fight started off with Envy getting under Terrorhurtz immediatly, pushing it towards the arena wall and throwing it over the fence disposing of the former UK Champion instantly. Meanwhile Ripper Evo attacked Batterbot causing its armour to disintegrate and fall off before also being flipped out of the arena by Ripper Evo. Envy then chased Ripper Evo for a bit before Ripper retaliated by flipping Envy in a failed attempt at getting it out of the arena. Envy self-righted in a spectacular way before getting flipped over again near the ropes of the arena wall where Team Buds robot struggled hugely to recover. After a few seconds, Ripper Evo came in and knocked Envy back onto its wheels before flipping it all over the arena. Envy self-righted every time and did well to hold on, even self-righting out the pit. But when the fight ended, the judge went in favour of Ripper Evo.
