‘Baby Slice’ to Make Twice-Delayed Pro Debut at Bellator 165 on Nov. 19

By Brian Knapp Nov 7, 2016
Kevin Ferguson Jr., the man also known as “Baby Slice,” will make his twice-delayed professional mixed martial arts debut against Aaron Hamilton as part of the Bellator 165 prelims on Nov. 19 at the SAP Center in San Jose, California. Bellator MMA officials on Monday announced the pairing.

Ferguson is the 24-year-old son of the late “Kimbo Slice” -- a Miami street-fighter who rose to prominence through a series of YouTube videos and later competed in EliteXC, the Ultimate Fighting Championship and Bellator. He died in June at the age of 42. The younger Ferguson operates out of the Team Bodyshop outfit in California, where he trains under former Maximum Fighting Championship titleholder Antonio McKee. He has one amateur bout under his belt, an 83-second knockout against Tom Brink on March 12. Ferguson had fights postponed at Bellator 160 and Bellator 162.

Hamilton will enter the cage with a 0-2 record. He last fought under the King of the Cage banner in March, when he submitted to a second-round rear-naked choke from Richard Dusio.

A lightweight title fight between champion Michael Chandler and former UFC titleholder Benson Henderson will headline Bellator 165.
