Elvis (The King) Mutapcic is still soured on the New Jersey State Athletic Control Board.

The Bosnian-American fighter was slated to make his World Series of Fighting debut against Jesse (JT Money) Taylor in Atlantic City two months ago as part of the promotion’s inaugural middleweight championship tournament.

However, moments before Mutapcic was set to step into the cage, the bout was scrapped after a NJSACB official claimed to witness the former MFC 185-pound titleholder ingesting a pill backstage. The official story then changed to Mutapcic’s corner being in possession of banned substances.

The only problem is the pills in question were prescribed to his manager for a heart condition.
