Kevin “Baby Slice” Ferguson pulled off the fastest submission in Bellator history this past weekend at Bellator 197. It was a bittersweet victory because despite the impressive 34 second tap out of Devon Brock, Ferguson’s father Kimbo died at the age of 42 in June of 2016 and wasn’t there to see it.

Maybe it’s just a matter of semantics, and the axe will drop any day now, but it has been two weeks since his Kalib Starnes-esque performance on Dec. 5. And other fighters on that same card have been released – namely, Justin Wren.
Is it possible White has had second thoughts and decided to keep Alexander, who debuted in the Octagon with a bang, knocking out both Keith Jardine and Alessio Sakara in the first round?

I was one of the ones who thought the Kimbo Slice / James Thompson fight was stopped too early but after watching this I’m starting to think the ref was right on. Damn Kimbo hits hard!
