You can't unlock this til Act IV.
There are three pitt fighting missions in all five cities of the game.
To unlock them, you first need to conquer the city. Once you've installed your own Overlord, you can start sending captains to the pitt.
For this they actually spawn as missions, so head to the fighting pitts to take part.
They come in three stages
Maggots - rewards you with a skill point on your first victory in every city.
Warriors - rewards you with currency to upgrade your fortress (one time only in each city)
Champions - opens up the final warchief slot for the garrison.

The reason you can't unlock this til Act IV is because yoy need to Conquer Minas Morgul to unlock the missions.

Now, you don't want to send your lowest levels, as they'll just fet slaughtered. What you want is a character with a weapon bonus (Cursed, Poisoned etc) and a gang. The gang will help with damage as well as keeping a distraction for most captains you'll come across.
Don't send your highest levels either, as these can still get slaughtered by captains that are 10levels lower than them. If that happens, just run in and dominate the victorius captain.

To do this you must first beat Act 3 of the story. The reason being that the Fight Pits in Minas Morgul are locked until this point.

There are 15 Fight Pits missions in total. Each map has 3 of them (Maggot, Warrior, Champion difficulty). They are marked by a icon on the map and the next level is unlocked by beating the last. The fights won't disapear from the map, but you can check which ones you have already completed in the Quest log.

The missions are simulated fights between one of your Orcs and an enemy Orc. You don’t have to fight yourself. One of your Orcs must win in each fight pit.

Since it is simulated, there is not much you can do but here are some tips for winning (for reference I completed this achievement at Level 45, with a Level 45 Captain beating a Level 56 opponent).

‌• If your captain is about to lose you can pause and quit the game before he dies. You will be able to replay the mission without losing a follower and you may even get an easier opponent.
‌• Berserkers and Shields usually perform well.
‌• Followers with an element on their weapon are very effective (fire or poison).
‌• Followers with a gang are helpful for dealing extra damage and sometimes distracting an opponent.
‌• You can use training orders to apply these traits to a follower, or just find a Captain who already has these things.
‌• Your followers can't be a higher level than you, to level them up quickly send them to kill another Captain and then play the Nemesis Mission that is created. They also level up from winning in Fight Pits.
