Today would have been the 44th birthday of fighter Kimbo Slice. The father of 6 passed away in 2016 after a meteoric but short career that saw him go from backyard brawler – to headlining the very first MMA event ever on network television. As hard as his hands were, it was the softness of his spirit that will stick with those who knew him. He was born on February 8th, 1974. Rest up Ferg.
