Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson died yesterday from heart complications at the age of 42.
Ferguson rose to fame after a series of videos showing him participating in one-on-one backyard brawls for money became an internet sensation. Because of the popularity of the fight videos and his charismatic personality, Ferguson was able to become a professional MMA fighter (for EliteXC, UFC and Bellator), an undefeated professional boxer and even a movie actor. People tuned in to see Ferguson fight and his bouts were always entertaining.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson’s family, friends and fans.
