Life Fight is an album by trumpeter Freddie Hubbard recorded in January 1987 and released on the Blue Note label. It features performances by Freddie Hubbard, Larry Willis, Stanley Turrentine, George Benson, and Ralph Moore.

Scott Yanow, writing for Allmusic, notes that “Overall this set (from an era when the veteran trumpeter was being overshadowed by Wynton Marsalis) gives listeners one of the last opportunities to hear Freddie Hubbard in peak form.”
