Ok, I am finally going to start a MMA DVD collect but I still have a budget. $100. Can you guys tell me how you would spend it on a collection if you had no MMA DVDs.

I already am planning to buy TUF 1 for $15 and will prob end up getting UFC 79 (even though there are only two good fights.) One of the best things you could tell me is what Pride Tournament is worth buying. I want to get the LHW one with Wandy, Chuck, and Rampage btu if there is better, feel free to tell me.

You guys listed orgs like Elite and KOTC. What are the best dvds for them and also what would the best K-1 dvds be if they make them?

for KOTC i'd say get the newer sets, the older ones are really a bunch of fat bikers or a bunch of guys who just thought they'd give it a try. althought the 1-10 set did have joe stevenson, Tiki, and somemore guys that a bigger now, but most of the fights are pretty quick (if you wanna call them fights). Kotc underground worldwide is a good set.
I have elite XC renegade and my friend has destiny. both of those are really good.
if you see any Rumble On the Rock dvds, I would get them if I were you. I love my 4-8 box set. Its really good.
Superbrawl has a bunch of hawiians on it and an occasional muay thai fight, but its pretty good, mine have a rich franklin fight, jeff curran, doerkson, mayhem, vitale.

and if you go to best buy you can get the kotc box sets that have 10 events for like 8.99 sometimes.

I have never come across a K-1 dvd. As for good Pride dvd's Final Conflict 05 is a must have, Critical countdown 04, shockwave 06, Critical countdown 05, and as you mentioned the total elimination 03 is a great one. Also there are a number of great Bushido events such as 12, and bushido 9. I personally loved Bushido 9.

If you wanna get alot of fights cheap, I would recomment any KOTC box set.. you get a ton of fights for 15-20$.. like 4 discs.

Also you really need to grab a pride box set.. i think they are 29$ for a bunch of full dvds.. see where pride started, watch saku, ranzo, igor, kerr, all the greats rise.. and watch kerr fall, lol druggy

$100?

Blockbuster/Netflix movie pass = $19.95+Tax
100 pack DVD+R's = $24.95+tax
DVD burner (if you don't already have one) = $44.95+tax
DVDfab Platinum w/ patch = Free Download (with a little time to find it)
A little time and effort to get everything recorded = Free

Total Costs = $89.85 +tax

Having 100 MMA DVD's = Priceless
(This post was solely meant to be a joke. I do not condone any of the above tactics and would never do it myself. )

I have every UFC on DVD. Every Pride. Every King Of the Cage. Every Hook-n-Shoot. Every Bushido. If Sherdog sells it, I bought it. The Mrs. an I went out and bought a really nice DVD cabinet. A nice cherry wood one that cost $500.00 and holds 450 DVD.s. I filled it up just with my MMA DVD's. Man was she pissed because we have like 400 movies.


I found that once I started buying them, I couldn't stop.

First off, begin by buying your DVDs online as opposed to Best Buy or another retailer. You can hit up amazon.com and buy them for like 20-30% less than in the stores.

As for starters, $100 would be very well spent on the PRIDE legacy collections. You can get all of them (which is basically PRIDE 1-25 or something like that) for between 8 and 15 bucks when you buy them used, and only a bit more if you buy them new through Amazon. You more or less will have the entire history of PRIDE numbered events. Very good investment.

You can get the Pride Legacy DVD sets. They are about 3-5$ per event.

on a budget you can get the PRIDE legacy collections 1through 5 for 75 dollars. 25 dvds for that price is the best for the budget

With a budget of $100, I'd make Mininova and Nero your two new best friends.

Also dont count out the warez websites.. I download ufc 1-40 all for free.. check out warez-bb.. Its also a great way to see the PPVs for free if u cant watch them live.. then just download em about 3-6 hours after they air. If you wanna download them fast tho u may need a rapidshare acount but thats only 10$

But you don't get the pride of showing off your collection of DVDs, plus, DVDs are infinitely better in quality than the best rips and often contain extras.

Thats not true.. You can download the high definition rips.. they are 1080 or 720 resolution which are way better then the 480 retial dvds.

and though its hard you can also find the complete dvd ripped without being compressed. its ready to go in .iso format so just get a dual layer dvds and burn it.

you can take the HD rip and burn them too.. then you have better dvds then the retail stores sell.. just print out the dvd cover and disc label on glossy paper and your good to go.. this will cost you about 2$ or supplies, where as a regular dvd would be like $14.95.. or if they have hd ufc dvds (i dunno havent bought any ufcs since they been recording in hd) i assume they are about 30$
