One to Watch on The Contender Series Wk. 3: Kenneth Bergh

Kenneth “Ymir” Bergh | 6-0 | 6’2 205 lbs. | Age 30 | Reach N/A | Orthodox Stance | Fighting Out of Oslo, Norway

Kenneth “Ymir” Bergh is undefeated with five of six wins coming by submission.  The 30-year-old Light Heavyweight from Oslo, Norway has a vice-grip choke like watermelon squeezing Ben Askren.  No dad bod though, instead he might be mistaken for an action movie villain, all muscled up and tattooed head to toe.

Bergh started his professional career at Heavyweight and breezed through his first three bouts, all ending by first round finish.  He earned a shot on The Ultimate Fighter Season 23 at Light Heavyweight but lost in a single minute to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt Eric Spicely. 

Kenneth reloaded, fired off three more submissions and now looks for Octagon retribution Tuesday July 9th versus Antonio Trócoli (11-3) on Dana White’s Contender Series.
