RIP Kimbo Slice. I never really understood the hype but he definitely had the talent just couldn't utilize it in the bigs.

Not the worst, Giant Silva, Zuluhino and Bob Sapp hold that honor.

He broke ratings records, his CBS fight did better than any UFC of Fox and he did better ratings on Spike than UFC did when they were on there.

Dog his skill set, but no one can't deny he drew eyeballs to screens and put asses in seats.

Kimbo Slice, the backyard-brawling internet sensation and MMA fighter who died Monday night at 42, was awaiting a heart transplant, according to a South Florida Sun Sentinel report.

Slice -- who was born Kevin Ferguson and lived in Coral Springs, Florida -- had been in intensive care at Northwest Medical Center in Margate, Florida, with heart failure since Friday, according to a medical report obtained by the newspaper.

Slice's coach, Mike Brown, told ESPN's Brett Okamoto that the fighter hadn't been healthy for a while and was planning on pulling out of his Bellator fight scheduled for July 16.

Between him and Dada 5000, Bellator gonna be a smoking crater after this.
