    ESPN hasn't updated and the only stories I'm seeing say he was taken to the hospital.

    Heart failure at 42.
    You put your body through the hell he put his through, it makes perfect sense.

    You mean street fighting or substance abuse?

    If I recall correctly, Kimbo was busted for steroids after his last "fight" against a man named Dada 5000.

    Best thing about this guy was the packaging. A really cool name, and a physical appearance that perfectly suited the really cool name. Like something Sly Stallone would've conjured up to fight Rocky.

    If only he had real fighting skills....

    He will be remembered for his humanitarian efforts and as not a Muslim .
