Dana White on 'Dark Era' UFC DVD's. "Email me, and I'll burn you a set."

White on "TUF" talk, Pettis' future, Maynard-Edgar III, Lesnar's health, Aldo, dark-era DVDs | MMAjunkie.com

"Dark era" DVDs unlikely to see the light of day

Hardcore UFC fans are among the most avid collectors of DVDs on the planet, with many enthusiasts boasting near-complete libraries of every UFC event ever held.

Unfortunately for U.S.-based fans, a number of events have never been released on DVD.

While in recent years, Lions Gate issued UFC 1 through UFC 12, UFC 13 through UFC 38 have never appeared on disc in the U.S. White said fans clamoring for the titles shouldn't expect them anytime soon, if ever.

However, the UFC boss did make an offer that he may soon regret. Send him an email, White said, and he'll just burn the damn things for you.

"I get asked that question all the time," White told MMAjunkie.com. "We do (own the footage). What happened was, when we bought the company and we started making the DVDs, there were some that we went back that we thought were good enough titles.

"You're talking about a group of people this big that collect the whole series. I'd like to know how big that number really is, and I'd rather just burn some [expletive] DVDs for them and give them to them. You go out, and you try and product these DVDs in that era of time, there's no shelf space (in stores). It's impossible to get out there and sell them.

"Email me, and I'll burn you a set."

You heard him....I am going to e-mail him right now.

That was the first thing I thought Blu-Ray limited release with more than one event per disc and put it online.
