Jurassic Fight Club (titled Dinosaur Secrets in Australia) is a paleontology-based television series on History which premiered in the USA in July 2008. Jurassic Fight Club was hosted by George Blasing, a self-taught paleontologist. The show ran for one season of 12 episodes and was not renewed.
Scientists study the battles of prehistoric creatures, such as dinosaurs, before they went extinct. Each episode features a forensic-styled breakdown of a prehistoric battle. Based on fossil evidence and paleontologist analysis, a CGI rendering of the battle, based on the evidence and the imagination of George Blasing (the show's host) is the final act of each episode. In most cases, the battles are based on actual fossil finds, although in several episodes scientists simply pit two contemporaneous prehistoric animals against each other.

|1||"Cannibal Dinosaur"||Male Majungasaurus vs. Female Majungasaurus (Identified as "Majungatholus")||29 July 2008|
Cannibalism is featured during the battle between a male and female Majungasaurus while the female tries to protect her offspring.The male Majungasaurus was looking for a mate when he sees a female Majungasaurus who isn't in the mood for mating. She was surrounded by lush vegetation while the male tries a reproductive dance first but the female does not respond, and is very hostile. Confused, the male then sees that the female already has a baby, leading him to move from reproductive to aggressive, intent on killing the baby so he can mate with the female. They fight as the female rams the male but the male being larger shakes it off quickly. Then the female uses her tail to whip the male. But then the female trips on a log, leaving her out of the way as the male Majungasaurus grabs the baby, slams it against a tree and crushes it in his jaws, killing it. Realizing that she's been tricked, the female Majungasaurus rises from the bushes, charges and bites the male on the neck, causing him to drop the baby. He falls to the ground and is paralyzed. The female now eats the dead baby and then has the male as a main course (while he is still alive).

Scientists explain the extinction of the dinosaurs.65 million years ago, a gigantic asteroid crashes in the coast of Yucatán, Mexico. It leaves a gigantic crater and it creates a meteor shower in the process while it also makes a cloud of deadly gas spreading throughout the land. Most of the dinosaurs (usually including Tyrannosaurus, Majungasaurus, Albertosaurus, Nanotyrannus, Dromaeosaurus, Edmontosaurus and Pachyrhinosaurus) had seen the impact and they attempt to run for cover, though some of them died in the series of meteors and the clouds. Soon, the dinosaurs are now extinct as a Tyrannosaurus collapses to the ground, dead, but then, this may be the time where humans and other animals replace the dinosaurs as the dominant species of Earth itself.
