Professional mixed martial artist Kimbo Slice, 42, has died, Bellator MMA confirmed.

EDITOR'S PICKS

It's time to reappraise Kimbo Slice
Kimbo Slice is a very scary guy. He is also a thoughtful friend, loving dad and budding entrepreneur. As MMA's date with mainstream destiny nears, it's time to reappraise the ultimate YouTube legend.
There was no word on the cause of Slice's death.

Slice had been hospitalized Monday for undisclosed reasons near his home in South Florida, according to Coral Springs police, who had been dispatched to his residence to prevent a potential gathering outside. They said no foul play was suspected.

Slice, birth name Kevin Ferguson, was a former backyard brawler and Internet sensation. He was born in the Bahamas on Feb. 8, 1974 but made his home in the Miami area. A heavyweight at 6-foot-2, 225 pounds, he had a 5-2 professional record with four TKOs.

He was signed to Bellator MMA and scheduled to headline Bellator 158 on July 16 in London against James Thompson.

He last fought at Bellator 149 on Feb. 19 in Houston. He defeated Dhafir Harris, aka Dada5000, in a three-round decision. The result was later changed to a no-contest by the Texas commission, after Slice tested positive for anabolic steroids and an elevated testosterone ratio.

His last fight was overturned because he tested positive for anabolic steroids. Shocking.
