ProElite, the parent company of Elite Xtreme Combat, has reportedly reached a multi-year deal with Image Entertainment to bring events produced by the budding mixed martial arts promotion to DVD.
The deal will call for Image to release four titles annually under the EliteXC brand name and eight titles annually under the ShoXC banner. EliteXC’s “Destiny” (Frank Shamrock vs. Renzo Gracie) and “Renegade” (Nick Diaz vs. K.J. Noons) are slated to be released on May 13th.
A DVD profiling David “Tank” Abbott will be released the following month.
“There is a growing market for high-quality arena-based mixed martial arts content, and ProElite is the premiere source for this type of sports entertainment,” Steven DeMille, senior VP of marketing at Image told VideoBusiness.com. “We are pleased to add ProElite to our roster of content suppliers as we continue to grow both our distribution channels and scope of programming.”
