Ever since Kimbo Slice came onto the scene with his backyard brawling videos he’s been an amazing story. What began as him being looked at at one of the toughest street brawlers on the planet lead to a career in fighting. Slice AKA Kevin Ferguson left the underground fighting scene and signed a professional contract with EliteXC in 2007. Slice competed in The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights, where he lost in his first fight to series winner Roy Nelson. In his UFC debut, Slice defeated Houston Alexander in the The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights finale. As of January 15, 2015, Slice has been under contract to Bellator MMA.
His whole life has been against the odds and it took Slice decades to get to where he is. And as many interviews and videos that you’ve seen of him, tonight we can finally see a true documentary of the man behind all the grit and toughness. And let’s not forget that slice is no spring chicken. He happens to be 42 years old. But he keeps fighting. And he keeps training.
