Dada 5000 Claims He Suffered Two Heart Attacks And Died During Kimbo Slice Fight
SB Nation – Bellator 149 “Shamrock vs. Gracie 3” took place on Feb. 19, 2016 at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. The main event that night was the third (and presumably final) meeting of MMA legends Ken Shamrock and Royce Gracie inside a cage.
Second from the top was a heavyweight attraction with popular street brawler turned professional fighter Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson and his long time South Florida rival Dhafir “Dada 5000” Harris — old friends turned bitter foes.
Harris experienced serious medical problems following his third round TKO loss to Ferguson, and it was quickly reported that he was resuscitated in the ambulance after the fight. Up to a week after the fight he was still convalescing in the hospital.
In his first statement following his near-death experience at Bellator 149, Harris revealed on social media that things were actually worse than was well known.

When I read this article I was concerned at first, but then I remembered Michael Jordan had the flu game where he scored a billion points. If Dada 5000 wants to be remembered as one of the best, he should have limped off the kidney failure, 2 heart attacks and dying twice and knocked Kimbo Slice out in the middle of the ring. Instead, he fell down and was transported by paramedics to the hospital. That does not sound like a potential champion to me. There was this one time I stubbed my toe at the beach and I didn’t call it a day. I trucked on and made my family push me in a wheelchair. That is how you fight through the pain. Dada 5000 should change is name to Grampa 5000 because he sounds like an old man. Roasted!!!
