Now, it seems like his son Kevin “Baby Slice” Ferguson Jr. is trying to continue such legacy.
Baby Slice left a great impression on his latest MMA fight
At the tender age of 26, Kimbo’s son is also making a name on the world of MMA with a pro-record of 3-1. Compared to his father, he is a leaner and faster fighter who’s getting it done with Bellator at the moment.
The blooming fighter is now coming out of a submission win for a first round rear-naked choke against Devon Brock at Bellator 197. He initially took down his opponent after a superb right hook.
His elite gym requires wannabes to pass through Slice Jr or fail
MMA veteran Antonio McKee leads gym “Team Bodyshop” which trains Bellator’s elite squad of young talents. It now appears as if training under the elder McKee is a good deal for up-and-coming talents.
But the problem is getting to the part in which he actually trains you. By that I mean, a wannabe should get through their excellent fighters as Slice Jr first.
In an interview with MMAJunkie he testified:
“This is how it is in our gym: If a guy wants to come train in our gym, we’ve got Joey, we’ve got A.J., we’ve got me, we’ve got Walel (Watson) now. You’ve got guys where – you’ve got to go through all of us. And then you train with coach. You might not even make it to coach – obviously, you won’t. Nobody ever made it to him. It was either Joey, me, then they’re done.”
Watch his recent amazing win below:
According to Kimbo Slice’s son who’s coming out of his father’s shadow as an excellent fighter, newcomers last for only about two or three days with Team Bodyshop.
Do you think it’s worth fighting one of the legendary MMA superstar’s son to get an elite training with McKee?
