David Mundell hunts for statement win in Tampa

David Mundell hunts for statement win in Tampa

Tuesday, Jul 19 2022 by BKFC Staff

David Mundell isn't one to say no when it comes to a fight.

But there is one man he seems at least hesitant to meet in the Squared Circle – his Team Shift teammate, friend and fellow Top 5 BKFC light-heavyweight contender Jared Warren.

“I couldn’t realistically fight him,” Mundell says with a laugh. “It’d be really hard for me to sit there and want to fight a close friend like that.”

You can probably forget about a Mundell-Warren matchup down the road, but both heavy-handed big men have fights at BKFC Fight Night Tampa 2 on Saturday, LIVE on the BKFC app.

Warren looks to improve to 4-2 against the undefeated John Michael Escoboza (7-0), and Mundell tries to climb to 5-1 against David Simpson. 

Simpson, a former amateur MMA champion, is riding high after notching his first BKFC knockout in May.

“He brings strength and power to the table, but I don’t think he’s very skilled. He’s just wild,” Mundell says of his opponent, adding, “I’ve got to make it clear when I go out there that I’m on a different level than he is.” 

Mundell believes Simpson will try to overwhelm him with pressure when the fight starts, and he’s embracing that.

“If he does that, I think he’s going to go to bed early.”

BKFC Fight Night Tampa 2 is STACKED from the first fight of the night to the Main Event, and it goes down LIVE on the BKFC app on Saturday, July 23, starting at 7 pm ET / 4 pm PT.
