MMA Fighter Kimbo Slice Dies: Professional mixed martial artist Kimbo Slice died Monday at age 42. Slice had been hospitalized earlier Monday for undisclosed reasons near his home in South Florida, according to Coral Springs police. ""We are all shocked and saddened by the devastating and untimely loss," said Bellator MMA president Scott Coker. "Outside of the cage he was a friendly, gentle giant and a devoted family man." Slice, birth name Kevin Ferguson, was a former backyard brawler and Internet sensation. A heavyweight at 6-foot-2, 225 pounds, he had a 5-2 professional record with four TKOs.

Possibly the platonic ideal of "shocked but unshocked." He lived a hell of a life, and I'm sorry he's gone.
