Kimbo Slice, MMA Fighter, YouTube Legend Dead at 42

Professional mixed martial artist Kimbo Slice died Monday at age 42, Bellator MMA announced.

Kimbo Slice was a very scary guy. He was also a thoughtful friend, loving dad and budding entrepreneur. As MMA's mainstream power dwindles, it's time to reappraise the ultimate YouTube legend.

There was no word on the cause of Slice's death.

Slice had been hospitalized earlier Monday in Margate, Florida, for undisclosed reasons, according to Coral Springs police, who had been dispatched to his residence to prevent a potential gathering outside. They said no foul play was suspected.
