Kimbo slices have made quite an impression in the world of mixed martial arts, rising from the ranks of “backyard” fighters to compete for both the UFC and the Belleretor MMA.
Slice, real name Kevin Ferguson died suddenly on June 6, 2016 at just 42 years old.
Slice was admitted to the hospital a day earlier and was pronounced dead of a heart attack. An autopsy revealed a mass in his liver, after the death of Bellaretor CEO Scott Coker, who said, “We are all saddened and saddened by the devastating and untimely death of Kimbo Slice, a dear member of the Bellarat family.”
During his athletic career, Slice led a perfect -0-0 lead in boxing matches with six knockouts, while not competing inside the cage. His last appearance came in February 2016 as a baller at 149 on the ballerina as opposed to the daad 5000.
The UFC brought in Slice to compete with the Ultimate Fighter, which he submitted in the first round against Ray Mercer before going to champion Roy Nelson in the second round.
The Ultimate Fighter: In the heavyweight final, Slice won a decisive victory over veteran Houston Alexander. He lost his next UFC out to Matt Mitrion in 2010, signed with Ballard five years later and finished Ken Shamrock in the first round.
Slice won his first three professional bouts, including the 43-second knockout of Tank Abbott in 2006.
