Kimbo Slice, real name Kevin Ferguson, was 5-2 in his pro MMA career and recently headlined a fight with Dada 5000 at Bellator 149. Dada 5000 had serious health problems during and after that fight. His heart reportedly stopped at one point and he was later revived. Now four months later, it’s Kimbo who has died.
