Kenneth Bergh (3-0) was looking to get back into the cage to show his skills after a disappointing TUF 23 loss to get into the house. The Frontline Academy fighter was all set to step into the cage tomorrow in a heavyweight fight against Luke Morton (2-0). “I was standing at the airport when my manager called me and broke the news” says the Norwegian about the event cancellation of the Golden Ticket Fight Promotion event going down at the Diamond Banqueting Suite in Wolverhampton.
“I’ve been ready to fight literally since I was on TUF and I have been training harder than ever to improve on all aspects both technically and physically. It has been very difficult fighting opponents, which is the reason I took this heavyweight fight.” says Bergh to MMAViking.com earlier in the day, when he was planning on fighting tomorrow.
Bergh made headlines for recently offering to step up and fight Jason Miller after the American weighed in 24 pounds over his Venator FC 3 middleweight limit.
While Bergh is on his way back to Norway without a chance to compete, he would like to thank his team and coaches and to his sponsor Nutramino.
