Blood on the Sand: Roman Centurion vs. Rajput

Tonight on Deadliest Warrior, a Rajput warrior faces down a Roman Centurion in a fight to the finish. This week's Blood on the Sand stares down these two warriors and offers you an inside look at tonight's fight.

Hey dudes, Max here. Thanks for sticking with us, and sending in your questions to The Aftermath - I think Gary had a great time answering your questions, and I know Geoff is looking forward to handling them this week.

Tonight we've got a Roman Centurion squaring off against a Rajput Warrior, and you don't need me to tell you what makes this fight interesting. This is one of those apples and oranges comparisons as only Deadliest Warrior would do it.

On the one hand, we've got our Centurions representing the best of Rome and her legions. I'd be kidding myself if I didn't say an interest in Roman history is what started me on the path that would eventually lead me to Deadliest Warrior. In the interest of full disclosure, allow me to admit I held a small bias towards our Centurions when we started. We stand here, the beneficiaries of Rome's legacy, 2763 years removed from the beginning of one of history's grandest experiments. For instance:

Scientists plan on using four metric tons of lead mined by Romans to shield a neutrino detector. Think about that for a minute - what Roman hands clawed from the earth over 2000 years ago is being used for cutting edge physics research today. Don't even get me started on the arch.
