    Team Uppercut

The Combat Robotics Club is a group of MIT students and alumni who share a passion for arena-style robot battles, in the polemic spirit of Battle Bots and Robot Wars. The team’s Uppercut robot can be seen on this season's Discovery Channel's Battlebots show. 

The team’s SawBlaze robot—a 250 lb., black and green gladiator equipped with a circular saw and flamethrower—made its big television debut on the Discovery Channel in 2018.
