“For those who may not know, Kimbo Slice was a legendary street fighter who eventually transitioned to MMA and the UFC. However, prior to his appearances on ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ and in the UFC, Kimbo Slice was posting videos of his brutal street fights in his backyard.

In a video shared on his YouTube channel, Jorge Masvidal shares the story of his first meeting with Kimbo Slice in the gym. Slice asked Masvidal if he wanted to fight, and being the fighter that he is, ‘Gamebred’ instantly agreed. Street fighting was and still is illegal, so it was all very discreet. But that didn’t stop these men from doing what they loved and making money through bets.

At the time, Ray, Kimbo Slice’s protege, was gaining fame as a knockout artist in those backyard fights. Jorge Masvidal showed up to fight Ray, who was visibly bigger, and knocked him out convincingly. This was long before Masvidal got his neck tattoo and called himself ‘Gamebred’. His cage name listed in the fight is ‘Ponytail’.”
