RIP Kimbo Slice – Tribute/Highlights – Don’t Hate Miami

Professional mixed martial artist and Miami Legend, Kimbo Slice died Monday at age 42. 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.

Slice was born in the Bahamas on Feb. 8, 1974, but grew up in South Florida. He played middle linebacker at Miami’s Palmetto High and showed the potential to play in college before Hurricane Andrew caused Palmetto High’s season to be cut short and his scholarship offers vanished. He flunked out of college at Bethune-Cookman University and was homeless for a brief time. He worked as a limo driver, strip-club bouncer and bodyguard before rising to fame through his viral street-fighting videos.

He was not embraced by much of the MMA world as it attempted to go mainstream, with UFC president Dana White famously saying Slice would not last two minutes in the Octagon. However, due in part to his immense popularity, Slice’s third professional fight, a fourth-round TKO against Thompson in May 2008, aired on CBS, making it the first MMA fight on prime-time network television.

In 2009, the UFC booked Slice as a contestant on “The Ultimate Fighter” reality series. He ultimately fought for the UFC twice, compiling a 1-1 record, before taking a leave of absence from MMA to compete in professional wrestling.

In 2015, Bellator signed Slice and promoted him in a main event against MMA pioneer Ken Shamrock. Slice won the fight via TKO in the first round, after nearly being submitted by Shamrock in the opening minutes. Here are some of his greatest highlights from professional

Goran Dragic’s Face is taking a Beating this Season

Since the start of the season, Goran Dragic has been taking quite a beating. It’s all a part of the game, I guess? Here are some recent shots he took in the NBA Playoffs.

April 12: Dragic catches a Spencer Dinwiddie forearm in Detroit, and then tosses his tooth aside on the sideline. No foul was called on the play.

May 5: Dragic attempts to take a charge from DeMar DeRozan. Instead he took an elbow to the mouth and required eight stitches after his front teeth pierced through his bottom lip. Dragic was whistled for a blocking foul.

May 9: The most recent Dragic abuse occurred in last night’s Game 4 where Demar Derozan loses the ball on a dribble and kicks the ball on Goran’s face..

And all we have to say in Miami is… LEAVE GORAN ALONE!
