Kimbo Slice, born Kevin Ferguson, has passed away. He was 42-years-old.

The famed MMA fighter Kimbo Slice was admitted to a hospital in a “dire” condition earlier today (June 6) in Florida.

Reports TMZ:

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 — real name Kevin Ferguson — last fought at Bellator 149 back in February and defeated Dada 5000 — but the victory was overturned when Slice tested positive for a banned steroid.

Unconfirmed sources are saying Kimbo was rushed to the hospital after suffering a heart attack.

Kimbo’s training partner, Tyler Cook, has reportedly confirmed the street fighter turned MMA pro’s death.
