Bergh is shown to be fighting in the light heavyweight co-main event, against Jorge Gonzalez (14-3) out of Mexico. He is the top ranked Mexican and on a 5 fight winning streak. The A.D.A.M. fighter is nicknames “George St.”
“This is going to be great. A historic event and competing in LA in front of that many people will be fantastic.”
