Brutality in a brutal sport.
Kimbo Slice Dead at 36
Former Street Fighter and Internet fighting phenom Kevin Ferguson, better known by his fighting alias Kimbo Slice reportedly died late Saturday evening from injuries suffered in his brutal UFC loss to NFL veteran Matt Mitrione.
Apparently Kimbo Slice suffered a significant amount of brute truama to his head, resulting in contusions to the brain. He was reportedly raced to a local hospital shortly after midnight eastern time, and pronounced dead upon arrival. Kimbo Slice was 36 years old.
Kimbo Slice made a name for himself in a series of brutal street fights which drew fame as they were circulated all over the internet.
He had mixed success in the various organizations of the mixed martial arts world; the concensus being that with little professional training leading up to his crossover, he was often drastically overmatched by the technical skills of his opponents. He was, however, widely regarded as one of the hardest hitters in the history of American combat sports.
Kimbo Slice is survived by 6 children and girlfriend Antionette Ray.
