FSM (Fighting Spirit Magazine) is a monthly professional wrestling and mixed martial arts magazine published in the United Kingdom by Uncooked Media. The magazine launched its first issue on Thursday April 13, 2006.

Brian Elliott is the current editor of FSM. Feature columnists include professional wrestlers "Stone Cold" Steve Austin and Nick Aldis, as well as Ring of Honor Executive Producer Jim Cornette. Guest columns have previously been provided by Bret Hart, Mick Foley, and Konnan. Regular feature writers include Michael Campbell, Will Cooling, Justin Henry, John Lister, and Richard Luck. Former Pro Wrestling Illustrated editor Bill Apter, who had a regular column before being replaced by Cornette, continues to work on the magazine in an administrative role.

In September 2008, Fighting Spirit published a private memo sent by the WWE to the members of the gaming press covering a WWE game release. The memo instructed the press not to publish screenshots of any characters bleeding or using weapons. Specifically, the memo declared that no Triple H screenshots could be used showing his character "in a defenseless or vulnerable position." In a blurb titled "Digital Politics," the magazine defied the WWE's demand and published a screenshot of Triple H being dominated by Kane. The magazine Power Slam later corroborated the memo.

In April of 2012, FSM announced that Jim Cornette and "Stone Cold" Steve Austin would be joining the magazine staff as columnists beginning with Issue 79. The additions coincided with changes recently made to the magazine's editorial style, which saw it take a more formal and analytical attitude to reporting.
