Kimbo Slice Reportedly Needed A Heart Transplant As New Details About His Death Emerge


This is so sad.

On Monday, Kimbo Slice passed away at 42 years old, after being admitted to Florida’s Northwest Medical Center a few days earlier.

When we first learned of the MMA fighter’s untimely death, not much was known about how he died or why he was hospitalized in the first place.

But now, a new report given to the Broward County Medical Examiner‘s office revealed that the famed fighter was admitted to the medical facility on Friday for a liver mass and congestive heart failure.

Physicians even told the ailing athlete’s family that he needed a heart transplant.

The Bahamas native’s loved ones were reportedly gearing up to send him to a Cleveland clinic on Monday night for the procedure, but he sadly passed before he could be transported.

The report also explained that the late sports star had no history of drug use.

Our hearts go out to everyone affected during this tragic time.
