I was at Walmart after Saucylv posted about the DVDs. I indeed found some. I got UFC 48, and U-Ko's 1-2 on the same disc. Both were $9.44.
I was happy to see them in there for so cheap. I asked a chick for some help. I wanted to see if there were anymore. So said they origianlly had 3 of them. I looked everywhere for the last one, but found nothing.
So I aked another guy to see if he knew where they were. He pulled up their website and it 48 and "Hits 1, & 2. I told him nevermind, the site is different than the actual store.
I went back a week ago to buy my brother Ko's 1/2 for Christmas. Where they were, was something else. I asked the guy where they moved them. He replied, "Uh...our vender got rid of them...." I was like WTF!? I said, "You need more of them(UFC dvds)!, not get rid of them. Who the hell is in charge of this?". The guy says, "They're kinda brutal arent they?......Uh...I guess thats not the kind of stuff they want here..." I hear this kind of shit all the time. So being the MMA fan I have been for the last 10 years, I had to educate another un-knowing person.
I was like, "Look freind, this is an actuall sport. Whats more 'brutal', a guy getting hit on the button and fights over, or a boxer that take 100's of punches in less than an hour? Which do you think causes more brain trauma? UFC fighters are well trained and if they get in any trouble they can quit at anytime, or the Ref stops it using his discretion....ect...ect..." I wasnt ranting or anything, I was really polite and guy took some sort of interest. I could tell by his eyes and questions he asked.
I told him that I would buy EVERY UFC dvd they can get in there. I also told him I was bummed that they dropped the ball. I dont know why I care so much, but this is crap. I dont have any other stores where I live. We got Walmart, K-mart, and oh yes...PAMIDA!!! Its weird to buy MMA in a store for me. I have always relied on the internet for MMA shopping.
Im going to drive 40 miles today and check their walmart. lol
