Spoiler warning for anyone who hasn't yet watched The Defenders, as it's impossible to talk fights without getting into major plot points.

28 months after audiences first watched Charlie Cox's Matt Murdock cement himself as the Devil of Hell's Kitchen, Marvel has finally delivered what was previously thought to be its superpowered end game: The Defenders. We now know, of course, that Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist are all moving on with different adventures beyond the action-packed miniseries, which means there's no end in sight for some of the most brutal and exquisitely choreographed fight scenes currently on TV. And The Defenders did not disappoint when it came to that all-important comic book element. (Check out our review for more overall thoughts.)

Here's we've rounded up the best of the best brawls and melees, and even a few smaller fights that were notable for reasons that complemented the badassery being displayed. Get some ice for those knuckles and dive into our list of the best fights that The Defenders had to offer.

11. When Jessica Jones Met Daredevil

To kick things off -- quite literally, actually -- we'll start with one of the shortest fights in any of the Marvel shows, in which Jessica's attempt to take Trish to safety is interrupted by a skirmish with Yutaka Takeuchi's not-from-the-comics villain Murakami, who can apparently fall off a balcony with the best of them. Things get further interrupted by the first proper Daredevil appearance within The Defenders episodes, and even though Jessica Jones and Matt Murdock had obviously already met, this was her first time in the presence of the costumed vigilante proper. And you know what? She preferred the scarf disguise. (Episode 5)
