Sinosic holds a black belt in the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
Sinosic is a UFC veteran holding a record of 1 win and 6 losses within the UFC. He made his MMA debut in 1997 by defeating Matt Rocca in Australia. In the year 2000, after an unexpected performance against Frank Shamrock, he made his UFC debut defeating Jeremy Horn by Armbar at UFC 30. Sinosic was then offered a match with Tito Ortiz, the then UFC Light Heavyweight Champion at UFC 32 but was defeated in the first round via TKO.
He has since fought several times in the UFC, with matches against Evan Tanner, Renato Sobral, Forrest Griffin, and Alessio Sakara at UFC 57. Since then he has defeated Shamoji Fuiji and Mark Epstein both by Armbar.
Elvis' last fight in the UFC was a loss to Michael Bisping due to TKO (Strikes) at UFC 70. On April 21, 2007 Bisping scored a TKO win over Sinosic at UFC 70 in Manchester, England. Sinosic came out fighting, and Bisping eagerly obliged, firing back before throwing the Australian to the canvas. Bisping then launched into a vicious ground and pound attack, opening up a cut on Sinosic's forehead. In the second round Bisping was knocked down from a knee. Later in the round Sinosic neraly secured a Kimura but Bisping managed to reverse it and pounded away until referee Steve Mazzagatti stopped the bout at 1:40 of the second round.
The "King of Rock n Rumble" has been competing on a national level since 1995, and has competed in such prestigious events as the Abu Dhabi World Submission Championships, the Ultimate Fighting Championship, and the K-1 Grand Prix as their highlighted superfight as well as Pancrase, RINGS, Warriors Realm, Fighter Extreme, UCC (now called TKO), Australian Vale Tudo Open and Caged Combat 1.

Sinosic would face off against Chris Hasemen, who handed him his first career loss, all the way back in 1997. Only a few days before the fight, Sinosic was forced out of the fight due to a shoulder injury and the fight was scrapped.
