Kimbo Slice Dead At 42
MMA fighter Kimbo Slice has died. He was 42.
The CEO of Bellator MMA confirmed the news saying (via TMZ): “We are all shocked and saddened by the devastating untimely loss of Kimbo Slice, a beloved member of the Bellator family.’
“One of the most popular MMA fighters ever, Kimbo was a charismatic, larger-than-life personality that transcended the sport.”
“Outside of the cage he was a friendly, gentle giant and a devoted family man. HIs loss leaves us all with extremely heavy hearts, and our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Ferguson family and all of Kimbo’s friends, fans and teammates.”
His last fight was back in February for Bellator 149. He defeated Dada 5000, but his victory was overturned when he tested positive for a banned steroid.
How upsetting. 2016 just won’t give up with these deaths.
