“We are all shocked and saddened by the devastating untimely loss of Kimbo Slice, a beloved member of the Bellator family.”
“One of the most popular MMA fighters ever, Kimbo was a charismatic, larger-than-life personality that transcended the sport.”
“Outside of the cage he was a friendly, gentle giant and a devoted family man. 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.”
Slice was reportedly rushed to hospital earlier this morning (Australian time) in “grave” condition following an undisclosed heart issue. He reportedly passed away a short time later with family by his side.
