Kimbo Slice’s son ready to make pro MMA debut
ready to fight.
Kevin Ferguson Jr., the oldest son of late fighting star Kimbo Slice, will make his professional mixed martial arts debut next month for the Bellator promotion.
Ferguson had his first amateur MMA fight in March, stopping his opponent in 83 seconds. Less than three months after the death of his father, who also fought for Bellator, the 24-yearold Ferguson will fight on the undercard of Bellator 160 in Anaheim, Calif., on Aug. 26.
Slice, 42, also fought for Bellator earlier this year, but he had been diagnosed with congestive heart failure and needed a heart transplant when he collapsed at his home on June 6. He died at a hospital hours later.
