MMA debut for Kimbo Slice's son canceled after opponent misses weight

Saturday October 22nd, 2016

The MMA debut for Kevin Ferguson Jr., the son of late fighter Kimbo Slice, was canceled after opponent Ray Bing missed weight by 17 pounds before Bellator 162.

The two were slated to fight in a 165-pound catchweight match at the FedEx Forum in Memphis, Tenn on Friday night.

“It’s frustrating as all hell that my debut has been delayed again, man,” Ferguson Jr. told MMAjunkie. “This dude coming in (17) pounds over is insanely unprofessional and all it means is that I’m going to take this anger out on whoever I get to ‘Slice’ up next.”

Ferguson Jr. still received his appearance fee money after meeting the required weight.

Kimbo Slice passed away in June due to congestive heart failure.
