Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson said that he will likely fight again at EliteXC’s next event, which takes place in February. Kimbo made the announcement today on Fight Network Radio.
The MMA world is all abuzz with talk of Kimbo after the infamous former underground street brawler disposed of Bo Cantrell by TKO last Saturday in just 19 seconds.
Kimbo, a former University of Miami football player turned bodyguard, got his start fighting in the streets for cash. Some of his street fights were recorded and broadcasted over the internet where they were wildly popular. It was through this popularity that Kimbo earned an exhibition fight with former boxer Ray Mercer; a fight that Kimbo won in the first round due to rear naked choke.
It was on the strength of that performance coupled with his enormous underground popularity that led to his EliteXC contract and the opportunity to train with legendary mma fighter Bas Rutten.
