This is the event sci-fi, anime, and automotive fans have been waiting for all their lives.

Tonight at 9 PM Central Time, two giant, piloted robots will duke it out in what's been dubbed the Giant Robot Duel.

The United States' MegaBots, Inc and Japan's Suidobashi Heavy Industry have spent two years assembling and perfecting mecha gladiators, and you can watch them go head-to-head online, either live on Twitch or after the live stream on YouTube!

If you love the Transformers, Pacific Rim, or mecha anime, or you just want to watch two giant robots beat each other into scrap, this is your night!
