One Fighting Championship will announce this week the introduction of a series of amateur events which will be taking place all across Asia in 2014. Entitled the “One Amateur MMA Series,” fights will be held on a monthly basis under the supervision of One FC officials. One FC is already working closely with existing amateur promotions such as Malaysian Invasion MMA, which is organized by One FC sponsor Tune Talk. Also, Academy Fighting Championship in the Philippines will likely all be integrated into the series. Promotion officials also stated that they would be working with existing gyms and organizations within the One FC Network such as Road FC, the URCC, Ultimate Beatdown, Tiger Muay Thai, Team Lakay and Evolve MMA to set up regular amateur “smoker” fights which would take place under a standardized rule set and be supervised by a qualified One FC official.

After WSOF 5 fight scrapped, Elvis Mutapcic gets own drug test
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – Fights get called off all the time, sometimes even on the day of the fight. But this one was a rarity. Elvis Mutapcic, set to make his promotional debut at World Series of Fighting 5 on Saturday night against Jesse Taylor, was scratched by the New Jersey Athletic Control Board for allegedly taking a medication pre-fight that wasn't disclosed to the commission. Mutapcic said a woman on the commission said she saw him take a pill. He said his manager, helping work his corner, merely took his heart medication. And then Mutapcic said the commission worker even changed her story later to say the fighter didn't take the pill.
