Bellator Still Planning To Hold London Card Despite Kimbo Slice Passing

Kimbo Slice was set to compete against James Thompson in the main event of Bellator‘s debut in London next month.

According to a report by MMA Latest News, the show will go on, but rumors that Slice’s son will replace him are false.

Event promoter Paul Hennessey told the site that Bellator is still “100-percent committed” to the show in the O2 Arena. However, they will not look at Kevin Ferguson, Jr. to meet Thompson.

Douglas Lima has already replaced Josh Koscheck vs. Paul Daley on the card, while Michael Page is also expected to compete. Current Bellator light heavyweight champion Liam McGeary is recovering from a knee injury and will not be asked to step in.

Hennessey added that they are “approaching all the top Bellator stars available to come in as a late replacement.”
