Bartling came into MMA off a solid wrestling pedigree. He grew up wrestling. He was a three-time state qualifier and claimed the district title three times. Outside of wrestling his freshman year for Ohio State, he wrestled his last three years of college for the University of Nebraska.
Wrestling is what his style is in MMA. Bartling doesn’t waste any time closing the distance and powering guys down. The technique into the takedowns isn’t great yet but his finish ability is solid. On top, he’s a strong guy and has shown the ability to stop the fight by submission and ground and pound. Bartling has just been a proving force just dominating every fight.
