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.
