It’s True, Kimbo Slice Has Died at 42

The sad news is out and yes it is true, UFC fighter Kimbo Slice who was born Kevin Ferguson, is dead at the age of 42. This comes as a shock to the MMA world. Slice was rushed to Fort Lauderdale’s Northwest Medical Center from his South Florida home on Monday afternoon.

He later died in the hospital. The Bahamian-American heavyweight had been scheduled for a rematch with James Thompson at London’s Bellator 158 on July 16th. Slice was 5-2-1 as a professional mixed martial artist. He also had seven pro boxing matches and was 7-0 with six knockouts.

He earned the first name ‘Kimbo’ from a childhood nickname and ‘Slice’  when he left a large cut on his then opponent Big D. In turn, the Internet and his fans started calling him Slice.

Kimbo Slice leaves behind a wife and six children.

What I find weird is how Muhammad Ali, another heavyweight boxer passed away just this past weekend on June 3rd at the age of 72.

May they both rest in peace.
