Elvis Mutapcic made two attempts to join The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) cast. Each time saw the middleweight not advance past the initial screening. This week he gets a chance at former contest Sam Alvey for Maximum Fighting Championship (MFC). Mutapcic thinks his lack of charisma is why he didn’t get a second look by the UFC.
It’s a sweet feeling for Mutapcic to meet someone who made it into the house.
“I’m not saying there isn’t a lot of great fighters on the show or that have come off the show, but they look for personality and they’re just trying to make a TV show,” said Mutapcic to MMA Mania. “That’s not me. The only part of me is that I’ll fight my behind off whenever I step into the cage.”
Mutapcic is 12-2 and has finished his last five opponents. Alvey is riding a pair of wins since April, in which he needed just over a combined time of three minutes.
MFC 36: Reality Check is this Friday, February 15, and can be seen on AXS TV. The card comes from the Shaw Conference Centre in Canada.
