Like father, like son.

"Baby Slice," Kevin Ferguson Jr.,will make his MMA debut August 26 when he steps inside the Bellator cage.

The son of MMA legend Kimbo Slice will battle Jonathan Tomasian at Bellator 160, at the Honda Center, in Anaheim, California. The show will be headlined by Benson Henderson taking on Patricio "Pitbull" Freire.

Baby Slice will compete in the welterweight division.

Bellator signed Slice to a developmental deal in April. His fight will stream on the preliminary card. The son of the late, great “Kimbo Slice,” Ferguson Jr. broke onto the scene "very quietly" earlier this year in an amateur bout in Western Massachusetts, where he scored a knockout victory just 83 seconds into the first round, according to a Bellator news release.

Ferguson’s teammate at “Body Shop Gym,” Joey Davis, will also make his professional debut, when he takes on Keith Cutrone in the welterweight division.

The event takes place on August 26 at Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., and will air live and free on SPIKE at 10 p.m. ET

The first preliminary bout – which streams live on and The Bellator Mobile App -- begins at 5 p.m. PST.

Davis is a 21-year-old standout wrestler who competed at Notre Dame College, where he accumulated an incredible undefeated 131-0 record and four consecutive NCAA Division II Championships during his college tenure, becoming the only Division II wrestler to ever win four national titles and go unbeaten in a career, according to Bellator.
