WSOF to pay show money to Mutapcic, Taylor


Just prior to their scheduled bout at World Series of Fighting 5, the New Jersey commission cancelled the fight between Jesse Taylor and Elvis Mutapcic. The commission cited one of it's deputies who claims he saw Mutapcic ingesting pills in the locker room, a claim the fighter denied. Regardless of what actually happened, the World Series of Fighting has decided to do right by both fighters and pay their show money:

Despite not fighting Saturday night, both Elvis Mutapcic and Jesse Taylor will get paid for their efforts. 

World Series of Fighting executive vice president Ali Abdel-Aziz confirmed with that the promotion will pay both debuting fighters their show money, even though they didn't fight at WSoF 5, which was held at the Revel Resort & Casino in Atlantic City, N.J.

I find it arrogant on the part of AC if they choose to not test Elvis when he obviously and vocally offered. Green anonymous Mohawk lady (her photo is on Elvis' Facebook page link below) made a mistake. If a fighter is responsible for what his corners bring into a locker room, since both fighters, the fans, and the promotion were punished for a corner "error" are we now living in an era where fighters must give a strip and cavity searches to all corner persons upon arrival at the arena?

You have to be cleared to fight by the commission technically.

Aren't they contracted to pay the show money already since the fighters already weighed-in and they called off the fight themselves?

Considering Metapcic was handling pills in the back, he shouldnt get a fucking thing. The excuse he used is not good enough, you're warmingup for a fucking fight you shouldnt be handling someone elses pills ffs.
