Fight Club is an underground fighting club for men only. Founded by Tyler Durden and The Narrator, it is a forum where men of all different social standings from all different professions are able to strip off their labels and love each other as equals. The Narrator replaces his support group addiction with Fight Club, as he finds it far more therapeutic and genuine. Fight Club morphs into Project Mayhem, and eventually all fighting stops in favor of soap/explosives manufacture and training.
