PRITTY Left Hook: Kevin “Baby Slice” Ferguson, Jr.

Rhett “PRITTY” Butler talks Kimbo Slice movie, Kanye and more with the son of a legend.

Welcome to the PRITTY Left Hook podcast where we get real about combat sports! I promise you that I will take a position that will either have you fist-pumping your coworker in the next cubicle or cursing me out voraciously. I talk trash and get in that ass, baby. LET’S GO!

The world of mixed martial arts is a wasteland of dreamers all hoping to get to a bag as big as Conor McGregor’s. Most people have no lineage and are going at this as a renegade seeking to change the course of his or her family’s trajectory one punch and a submission at a time. 

Kevin “Baby Slice” Ferguson, Jr., is different from the fray. As the eldest son of Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson, Sr., this young man was already street certified before he ever entered the cage. After only one amateur fight, Baby Slice jumped right into the professional ranks and one of the world’s largest promotions, Bellator MMA.

Now with a pro record of 3-2, Baby Slice is still figuring out his way while honoring his Pops by continuing the legacy of combat. We sat down at the Mohegan Sun recently and discussed how he felt about the actor Winston Duke playing his father in the upcoming Kimbo Slice biopic, Kanye and Trump, and watching Kimbo Slice bring the hood to MMA.

We get real with Baby Slice only on the PRITTY Left Hook. Get this audio smack hitting you in your gut and your liver!
