Kimbo Slice's son will follow in his father's fighting footsteps -- and has inked a deal to make his MMA  debut at Bellator 160 next month. 

24-year-old Kevin Ferguson Jr. confirmed the deal to the AP -- saying he will fight on the undercard on August 26th. He's been training with Bellator fighters like A.J. McKee and Bubba Jenkins. 

"I was always around the fight business and everything, so I saw it and I understood what was going on," Ferguson told the media outlet ... "I just knew without a doubt that one day, this was what I wanted to do."

Ferguson says he got his father's blessing to fight before Kimbo died back in June

As we previously reported, the 42-year-old fight legend had major heart problems -- and died from complications stemming from congestive heart failure on June 6th.
