MFC Middleweight Champion Elvis Mutapcic Confirms Deal With WSOF
Promotional Debut Unlikely to Take Place at WSOF 3
By Kelsey Mowatt
World Series of Fighting has signed one of the top middleweights not currently signed to the UFC or Bellator, as the Maximum Fighting Championship’s middleweight champ Elvis Mutapcic has inked a multi-fight deal with the promotion.
The deal was reported first by MMA Junkie, and Mutapcic has confirmed with Full Contact Fighter that he has signed a five fight deal with WSOF. While the promotion has its third show booked for June 14th, Mutapcic has a wedding coming up and as a result, he will not be able to fit a camp in prior to the card.
Mutapcic (13-2) went 3-0 during his run with the MFC by scoring wins over Jacen Flynn, Joseph Henle and most recently Sam Alvey. The Iowa fighter also holds a stoppage win over recent TUF Brazil finalist Cezar Ferreira.
The only man to defeat the 26 year-old-vet in his last ten bouts is Artenas Young, who handed him a unanimous decision loss at Shark Fights 16 in June, 2011.
