TikTok stars on Simple Simon vs Ed Matthews undercard spark onstage brawl

A pair of TikTok stars who fight on the undercard of Simple Simon vs Ed Matthews this Saturday night were separated by security after brawling onstage during their press conference.

Pully Arif and Tommy 'Flex' Mulligan fight on the undercard of this Saturday's event, which is headlined by fellow content creators 'Simple' Simon Colbran and Matthews. Arif and Mulligan previously came to blows at a press conference in June for the fight, with punches being thrown after Mulligan pushed Arif during their face-off.

There was no love lost during their second meeting, with Arif irking his rival on to confront him onstage. "We've got the press conference today and he won't do anything because he's a p****," he said. "What do you mean a p****? I'm in front of you right now come and do something," Mulligan replied.

Arif then lunged towards his rival with a bottle of water in his hand and squirted it on him. The pair got into a brief scuffle before two security guards onstage grabbed them and separated the altercation, despite Mulligan's best efforts to get a second pop at his opponent. Arif then laughed at him and said: "Where are you going? You grazed my elbow Tommy, why you so angry? It's only a bit of water, it's the first wash you've had all week."

Speaking of his disdain for his opponent, Mulligan said after the scuffle: "I've come to do strictly business. I'm ready for this, I've been training twice everyday. I've been dedicating all my time to this, I can't wait to get in the ring. When I looked into his eyes I was looking for fear, nerves and that's exactly what I saw. In every other fight I've had I'm normally humble, but there's something about this guy that just gets under my skin.

In the co-main event of the Kingpyn card, OnlyFans star Elle Brooke takes on former Love Island contestant AJ Bunker. Wett was originally scheduled to fight fellow content creator AJ Bunker on the card, but she withdrew because of fears over her own safety after Brooke brought a coffin with a blow-up doll depicting her inside of it to their press conference.

Brooke, who vowed to "kill" Wett before she withdrew from the fight, accused Bunker of censoring her trash talk during their press conference. "I'm not as aggressive because I've been told there is a contract where I can't be aggressive otherwise it will be terminated. I'm not allowed to use the word kill, c***, murder or be threatening in any type of way," she said.
