It was a brutal battle between Gabriel and Chompalot when they entered the ring in Robot Wars.

And the dramatic fight ended with flames and a fire extinguisher.


After the fight was over, poor Chompalot burst into flames.


The dramatic turn meant fire extinguishers had to be rushed into the arena.


The demise of her robot was tough on Chompalot’s owner Debs.

But while it was sad for Team Chompalot, it was exciting for viewers at home.

I do love how Chompalot was rushed from the arena like a critically ill human… #RobotWars
