Heavyweight fighter Kevin Ferguson – better known as “Kimbo Slice” to many veteran fight fans – is slated for a return to the cage, this time with Bellator MMA.
MMAjunkie has confirmed with sources close to the promotion that the veteran slugger, previously known for a series of underground fights posted to YouTube, and later for a career with the now-defunct EliteXC promotion and eventually the UFC, has agreed to a deal with Bellator. An announcement is expected during tonight’s Bellator 132 broadcast on Spike TV.
CombatPress.com first reported the signing on Thursday evening. According to the report, a debut date and matchup is expected to be announced in the coming days.
Slice, a 40-year-old Bahamian-born fighter, hasn’t competed in MMA since a 2010 loss to Matt Mitrione in 2010.
