Breaking: MMA Fighter Kimbo Slice Dead At 42
Longtime street fighter and MMA fighter Kimbo Slice was reportedly hospitalized early Monday morning and according to TMZ, the situation is ‘dire’.
“MMA fighter Kimbo Slice was hospitalized in Florida earlier today … and multiple sources tell TMZ Sports the situation does not look good.
Law enforcement sources tell us … Slice was admitted to a hospital near his home in Coral Springs, FL.
Police are currently at his home gathering information from family members.”
Kimbo’s last fight was against Dada 5000 when he stepped into the cage at Bellator 149, coming out victorious at the time. The victory was later overturned when Slice tested positive for a banned steroid.
Can confirm reports that Kimbo Slice was admitted to a local Fla. hospital. I’m told at this time that he’s not in good shape, sadly.
