Kevin Ferguson Jr. (1-0) is set to make his Bellator debut in San Jose on Nov. 19 as a part of Bellator 165. Ferguson, also known as Baby Slice, is the son of Kimbo Slice, who became a street fighting legend in Miami, internet sensation and eventual pro MMA fighter.
Slice didn’t start fighting professionally until he was 33 years old and failed to match his success against technically proficient fighters.
Ferguson Jr., who has only one professional fight under his belt, has already has his Bellator debut postponed twice. The first time, in early August, was due to injury. This past weekend he was due to fight at Bellator 160 but his opponent, Ray Bing, came in 16 pounds overweight at the weigh-in.
An opponent has not yet been selected for Ferguson Jr’s debut.
Just like his father though, who was known for his “fight anyone, anytime” approach, Baby Slice had this to say about the uncertainty of who he will fight:
“No, they know I don’t care. I’m gonna put in the work, I’m gonna train hard and I’m gonna go in there and get the knockout or I’m gonna hurt my opponent. As long as I get that ‘W.'”
Bellator 165 is headlined by a lightweight title fight between current title holder Michael Chandler and former UFC champion Benson Henderson.
