Kevin Ferguson Jr. made his amateur MMA debut earlier this month at Warrior Nation: XFA XII. As word spread about who Kevin Ferguson Jr. was, the buzz for the small fight promotion’s card gained a lot of attention.
Who is Kevin Ferguson Jr.? Well, he is the son of Kevin Ferguson Sr. You may also know Ferguson Sr. as Kimbo Slice. Yes, the viral video sensation turned professional MMA fighter currently signed with Bellator MMA who has brought in record numbers for Scott Coker and company.
Controversy has been surrounding Slice after his fight with Dada 5000 at Bellator 149 where he also failed his fight drug test testing positive for the steroid nandrolone. However, “Baby Slice” will likely be looking past the talk of the media to move forward and gain more experience in the fight game, and will surely gain a following along the way.
From the video description:
This 4th bout of the evening brought a highly anticipated ammy debut to the Warrior Nation Cage that developed as a 175 lb catch-weight match.
It started with Tom Brink fighting out of New York’s, Xtreme Ambition under Head Coach, Marcos Ithier. Brink welcomed Kevin Ferguson Jr. to his first MMA match. Ferguson Jr., now and forever to be known as “Baby Slice”, is the son of backyard brawler and Youtube sensation turned professional MMA fighter, Kimbo Slice!
Brink and Baby Slice squared up quick in the cage as everyone in attendance had all eyes on how Ferguson Jr. would perform. Baby Slice didn’t waste time as he stalked down Brink, constantly closing distance, and throwing heavy leather with bad intentions. It only took Ferguson Jr. less than 2 minutes to secure a debut win by way of a solid KO at 1:23 of round 1.
With more finishes like this one against Tom Brink, you can assure that promoters are ecstatic on what the future holds for “Baby Slice.”
