Kimbo Slice’s Son Removed From Friday’s Bellator 160 Card

0

According to a report by MMA Fighting, Kevin Ferguson, Jr. has been forced off Friday’s Bellator 160 prelims.

Ferguson, nicknamed “Baby Slice” in honor of his father, Kimbo Slice, was to face Johnny Tomasian in a welterweight contest. He made his amateur debut earlier this year, scoring a first round knockout.

Ferguson suffered an injury to his MCL but will not require surgery.

“My role in the Team Body Shop Bellator takeover hit a bit of a snag over the weekend while training, and I’m sad to say that my Bellator debut will have to wait a little longer,” Ferguson said. “I’ll still be at the event holding it down for my teammates AJ McKee and Joey Davis.”

Bellator 160 features a lightweight title-eliminator between Benson Henderson and Patricio “Pitbull” Freire and airs live on Spike TV from the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.
