Prediction

I believe this is a much closer fight than most people think as general consensus is that Bergh runs through Trocoli. On the feet, it’s super close as Trocoli is the much longer fighter and Bergh may struggle to get inside. The takedown defense of Trocoli isn’t too bad and has good wrestling himself. Bergh was taken down quite easily and submitted by Eric Spicely. The pick is still Bergh just due to the lacking cardio of Trocoli while Bergh gets stronger as the fight goes on.
