Baby Slice is ready to fight.

Kevin Ferguson Jnr, the oldest son of late fighting star Kimbo Slice, will make his professional mixed martial arts debut next month for the Bellator promotion, according to reports.

Ferguson had his first amateur MMA fight in March, stopping his opponent in 83 seconds. Less than three months after the death of his father, who also fought for Bellator, the 24-year-old Ferguson will fight on the undercard of Bellator 160 in Anaheim, California, on August 26.

“I was always around the fight business and everything, so I saw it and I understood what was going on,” Ferguson said. “I just knew without a doubt that one day, this was what I wanted to do.”
