Introduction

Two MMA fighters go on quests around the world regarding other fighting styles.

Outline

Fight Quest is a television show on the Discovery Channel that had a preview episode air on 28 December 2007 and began airing weekly on 04 January 2008.

The show followed Jimmy Smith (a Los Angeles-based (amateur) mixed martial arts fighter) and Doug Anderson (an Iraq War veteran and professional fighter) as they travel around the world learning different styles of martial arts, spending five days training with notable masters of the styles they are studying, before exhibiting what they have learned in a final demonstration and/or fight.

According to Smith and Anderson the show was mostly unscripted and a true challenge. At the end of February an updated DVD box set was released that included the final three episodes not in the original release.

The series was cancelled at the beginning of the second season and only three episodes aired, the last one ended on 03 October 2008.
