The Sun Sentinel reported that Slice, birth name Kevin Ferguson, was admitted to the hospital on June 3, complaining of “severe abdominal pain, shortness of breath and nausea.”

The report states Ferguson was placed on a ventilator in intensive care and was scheduled to be transported to Cleveland, where he would be placed on a donors list. Trauma and foul play are not suspected in the fighter’s death.

According to Mike Brown, his head coach at American Top Team, “He had a few things going on,” Brown said. “He had a crazy hiccup problem and he had high blood pressure. He also had a problem that had something to do with his gallbladder.

Kimbo, born Kevin Ferguson, rose to fame on the internet as a viral street-fight star. He made his MMA debut in 2007, and won his UFC debut in 2009. He continued to fight on and off up until this year, when he knocked out Dada 5000 in February.

Slice (5-2) was scheduled to fight James Thompson at Bellator 158 on July 16 in London.


Our condolences go out Kimbo’s family and friends.
