Kimbo Slice was born Kevin Ferguson on February 8, 1974 in Nassau, Bahamas. He became famous for street fights which were publicized across the internet. Rolling Stone one dubbed Slice as "The King of the Web Brawlers". He worked as a bouncer for a strip club until his high school friend and manager, Mike Imber, offered him a job as limousine driver and bodyguard for RK Netmedia, better known as Reality Kings, a Miami-based adult-movie production and promotion company responsible for a number of popular adult subscription websites. Slice made his sanctioned MMA debut against former WBO Heavyweight champion boxer Ray Mercer at Cage Fury Fighting Championships 5, in Atlantic City on June 23, 2007. The match was scheduled as a three-round exhibition with all professional rules of MMA combat. Slice defeated Mercer with a guillotine choke at 1:12 into the first round.

Icey Mike Imber is not only one of Kimbo's best friends, but he has also managed Kimbo's career since day one. In 2003, he began his career in unsanctioned street fights. The fights were distributed throughout the Internet, mainly through the adult website SublimeDirectory and YouTube. In his first taped fight against a man named Big D, Ferguson left a large cut on his opponent's right eye which led Internet fans to call him "Slice". The name stuck and he tagged his childhood nickname "Kimbo" with the last name "Slice" and Kimbo Slice was born. His only on-tape street fight loss was against Sean Gannon, a former Boston police officer who was also trained in MMA. The popularity of the fight propelled both men into the MMA spotlight. Unfortunately, Kimbo Slice died on June 6, 2016 at the age of 42.
