Baby Slice picked up his second win under the Bellator MMA banner Friday in Dublin, Ireland, submitting Fred Freeman in under two minutes.
The son of the late Kimbo Slice, Kevin Ferguson Jr. returned to action on Friday in Dublin at Bellator 187. Opposite him in the cage was the unheralded Fred Freeman. Freeman was just 1-0 coming into the night, but had an extensive amateur background. Baby Slice, meanwhile, entered the night with a 1-1 professional record, coming off a win over DJ Griffin at Bellator 179. Freeman vs. Slice went down at a catchweight of 165lbs.
It didn’t take long for Slice to get going on Friday in Dublin. In the end, it didn’t take long for him to secure the victory, either. Slice took the center of the cage early, while Freeman threw a couple of kicks to create space. On Slice’s first attack, however, he immediately clinched, and took Freeman down along the fence. From there, he worked from Freeman’s guard; Freeman appeared unsure of himself on the ground, and easily gave up the back and his neck, turning at the wrong time. Baby Slice had the rear-naked choke sunk in just seconds later, both hooks in. That’s all it took for the tap to come! With the win, Kevin Ferguson Jr. improved to 2-1 in Bellator, and overall.
