Returning from injury and a disappointing loss, Baby Slice, a.k.a. Kevin Ferguson Jr., quickly re-established himself as a top prospect at Bellator 232.
Baby Slice, properly Kevin Ferguson Jr., returned to action Saturday night at Bellator 232. Slice’s return to the Bellator cage followed an upset loss at the hands of Corey Browning, and an ACL injury to boot. Saturday in Uncasville, CT, Slice took on Craig Campbell, who had previously competed in LFA. Campbell was 3-3 to start the night.
Slice opened the affair with a combination, as he looked to get back to his winning ways. He fired out a leg kick that was caught by Campbell, who clearly thought a takedown attempt would be a good idea. It wasn’t. As Campbell dropped down to shoot in, Slice unleashed a barrage of elbows and hammer fists. Campbell immediately slumped forward, as Slice added in a few more strikes for good measure. While replay would show that at least one of the strikes hit the back of the head, the one that set up the finish was an elbow just behind the ear.
Son of the late Kimbo Slice, training with Team Bodyshop, Ferguson Jr. continues to look like a solid prospect for Bellator.
Official Result: Kevin Ferguson Jr. def. Craig Campbell by TKO, Round 1, 0:38
