Kimbo Slice’s Loved Ones Reflect On His Passing
One year ago, the world of combat sports lost one of its most unique and celebrated figures when Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson passed away at the age of 42.
Slice made his name as a Youtube sensation, his videos of organized street fights in Florida becoming one of the first true staples of the viral video era. He eventually became a marquee fighter for EliteXC before moving over to the UFC and finally Bellator, where he fought his last bout in February of 2016.
The street-fighter turned pro MMA star left behind a legacy that was distinctly his own, and on the anniversary of his passing his peers, family and friends reflected on his life and career in an ESPN feature piece.
