Default 30 hours of fights for $2.40

I just moved to a new area a couple weeks ago, and today I decided to stop in this little 99 cent store in the strip mall by my local Safeway to get some paper and cleaning products. As I was browsing the store, I noticed they had some DVD's and CD's on a rack marked 60 cents each. Normally, I wouldn't even bother wasting my time sifting through Spanish B-movies and made for Lifetime specials that ended up going straight to DVD, but out of the corner of my eye I noticed an NBA logo in the pile of cases. So, with my interest raised, I decided to see what was there.

That's when I noticed a case with none other than Quinton Rampage Jackson starting back at me.

Cutting to the chase, I ended up finding a bunch of old King of the Cage DVD's. Two of them were 5 disc sets, one is a 2 disc set, and one is entirely dedicated to Rampage. I've seen these same sets at Best Buy for like 15 or 20 bucks a few years back, but I got all 13 discs (with over 30 hours of fights) for only about $2.40. They are all brand new too, not used.

The list of names on these discs is enough to make Dana White's heart skip a beat, seeing as how I'm sure there are plenty of hardcore fans who would pay good money for this old footage if Zuffa could slap a UFC logo on it. Obviously KOTC isn't produced as sharply as UFC or a lot of other newer orgs in recent years, but the nostalgia alone makes it worth far more than a few bucks to even a casual fan.

Just thought this was a killer find, and felt like sharing it with you guys.

Rampage Jackson (we even get some classic commentary by Page)
Urijah Faber
Don Frye
Dan Severn
Shonie Carter
Crazy Horse
Ricco Rodriguez
Sean Sherk
Jeremy Horn
Dennis "the thong" Hallman
Guy Mezger
Duane Ludwig
Yves Edwards
Pete Williams

and a lot more.

Bruce Buffer is even the ring announcer in some of these fights

What's funny is that I just realized I paid more for my last pack of UFC trading cards than I did on 30 hours of actual fights today.

If I send you a few blank DVDs & a check for $3 (you gotta make a profit, right?), any chance you'd ship 'em back to me full?

Great find, JB!

I just ordered the UFC 1 - 10 DVD box set and I think it was around $50 with shipping. Still worth it but I'd have loved to find it for $5...
