Fight Club was a martial arts TV magazine program, created by Samuel Pagal and broadcast by the French based, pan-European broadcasting sports channel Eurosport. The program includes various events, bouts and special features of kickboxing throughout the world.
Fight Club was aired on 21:00 CET on Thursdays. The replays were generally scheduled in weekends in shortened versions.
The Fight Club program was notable for airing K-1 events. Its whole calendar was usually shown over the course of the year. The K-1 martial arts organization has tournaments in K-1 MAX for a 70.5 kg (155 lb) weight division, and in K-1 World Grand Prix for the +90 kg (200 lb) weight division. In addition, fight club often covers various kickboxing and Muay Thai events from Europe, within modified rules in European standards.
