I'm going legit! I have had in my possession, (il)legally perhaps, every UFC PPV at one time or another. Now that I'm a big boy with a big boy job & making kinda big boy money, I figure it's time I start spending my money on the sport I love to much.

I have decided that I want to build myself an MMA library. I went to Amazon.com & built a slew of wishlists:

UFC PPV DVDs
The Ultimate Fighter DVDs
PrideFC PPV DVDs
King of the Cage DVDs
Misc MMA Org DVDs
MMA Instructional DVDs
MMA Workout DVDs
Gracie Instructional DVDs
Between those 8 wishlists, I have marked at total of 271 DVDs with which to start my library. Of course, that list will grow as the UFC keeps putting out DVDs & I'm not sure if I'll ever fully complete this library, but it's a fun goal. It took me a couple of long evening putting all this together, so as a reward to myself, I figured I'd buy myself the first 3 items on the list:

Now my plan is to spend June doing "30 UFC in 30 Days"! :happydancing:

If you find a source for the ‘lost’ bouts, the preliminary and alternate fights from the first few UFCs, let me know!

Man, I wish I could! I'm afraid that there's little or no hope, though. There's a reason they called the SEG days the Dark Ages!

As someone who didn't and regrets it, I am going to urge you to SAVE YOUR MONEY. Build a savings to buy a house or at least buy a car without financing. You can do this because it is pretty cool, but 10 years from now, you'll look back at all your "wasteful" spending and wish you had saved.

Just saying - because I've been there.

OK, clearly that's not Mike posting wise, thoughtful advice. He must have inadvertently left his account open & that's Kelly posting as him! :frantics: :laugh:

Mike's right, Ben, you're going to need a BIG house, one side for you and your collection, and the other side for your wife. :ninja:

Accidentally, of course. :Whistle: And then she'll sell your awesome collection and buy her dream home! :laugh:

I'm sure it's going to be an awesome collection, Ben. :)

It's mainly just so when my family asks me "What do you want for ____", I can have something specific to point to. When I have some extra birthday money sitting around I can have a set goal to spend it towards instead of just tossing it away on ____.

Accidentally, of course. :Whistle: And then she'll sell your awesome collection and buy her dream home! :laugh:

Yeah, women are crafty like that. :ninja:
