MMA fighter Kimbo Slice has passed away at the age of 42. He was hospitalized Monday in a Florida hospital with an undisclosed illness.  Slice's training team announced his passing on their Twitter.

Slice's last fight was at Bellator 149 in February in which he defeated Dada 500. The win was overturned after Slice tested positive for the steroid nandrolone. Slice became famous on YouTube for his street fights before he made it to the UFC. He had made big improvements in his last couple of fights.
