For centuries, knights were the ultimate warriors, ruling battlefields with skill, courage, and the brute strength it takes to fight in 60 pounds of plated armour. Today, there are still men who dream of testing their worth in medieval-style warfare. As members of the Armored Combat League, they'll have that chance. Each episode features six contestants willing to risk life and limb in a series of challenges to see who will reign supreme.
