The news of 42-year-old Kevin “ Kimbo Slice ” Ferguson’s unexpected death earlier this month has been lamented throughout a shocked MMA community since. One of the fighters directly affected by the news was UFC welterweight Jorge Masvidal , whose connections to Slice extended beyond their common American Top Team training grounds. Like Slice, who notably rose to stardom due to street fighting videos, Masvidal also dabbed on Miami’s bareknuckled brawling scene. In spite of having had “plenty” of those encounters, Masvidal has only been caught fighting one opponent on camera: Slice’s then-protege, known only as “Ray,” who Masvidal faced and defeated on two different occasions . In an interview with MMAjunkie Radio, Masvidal looked back on his initial encounters with a courteous Slice – which involved a surprisingly fancy dinner experience. “The first time that I fought Ray, you can see it on the video , (Slice) is the unofficial referee,” Masvidal recalled
