CORAL SPRINGS — First Ali, now Slice. Mixed martial arts icon Kimbo Slice passed away prematurely on Monday at the age of 42. Word on the street claims he died from heart failure. The Rick Ross look-alike was hospitalized on Monday in South Florida. He leaves behind no wife and no kids. “We are all shocked and saddened by the devastating and untimely loss of Kimbo Slice, a beloved member of the Bellator family,” Bellator MMA president Scott Coker said in a statement.

“Outside of the cage he was a friendly, gentle giant and a devoted family man,” Coker added. “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.”

Law enforcement officials with the Coral Springs Police Department said Kimbo was transported from his South Florida home to Northwest Medical Center for undisclosed reasons. No 911 call was made but the circumstances surrounding Kimbo’s death are being investigated.

  1. If your a fighter it’s probably not good to die the same week as ALI.

  2. Such an amazing but sadly short life. It was so fun watching him fight. My condolences to his family and friends.

    It’s sad he died but he is in no way an mma icon. He was an embarrassment to the sport.He got more money and more main events because of his name not skill.

  4. RIP PEACE.. DANG.. Losing them way way Fast.. Hug your family and friends. Tell them you love them and how much you care each and everyday!

  5. rest in peace kimbo

  7. I don’t care what anyone says, Kimbo Slice was a BAD MOTHER-F@#$ER. I followed most of his back yard fights, and all bs aside, he walked his talk. he was tough, period. A kind of tough that seems to have vanished from this world. He didn’t succumb to the politically correct bullshit of today’s society. He, thru his example, said “This is me. This is what I believe, and this is what I stand for. If you don’t agree..?? Come n try to change it.”. I watched SEVERAL individuals accept that challenge, and nearly ALL suffered tremendously. God’s Speed, Limbo, thank you for the inspiration!

  8. kimbo was the main guy who got me to start watching the ufc.

  9. Kimbo Slice was the truth……….. RIP Big Fella
