Tragic news surfaced earlier this week that YouTube star and MMA fighter Kimbo Slice had passed away from heart failure in Florida. Unbeknownst to the MMA community, Slice had been hospitalized since June 3rd, at which point he learned that he had a mass on his liver, and would need a heart transplant.

Since his passing, numerous MMA fighters, including Dada5000, have paid tribute to Slice on social media. Now, fellow Bellator MMA fighter Wanderlei Silva had paid tribute to Slice via Instagram, along with a message about brain damage:

R.I .P. Be in peace thanks for the entertainment! You make your job very well !!! Descanse em paz , caraca primeiro o Randeman agora o Kimbo , da até um medo , ta chegado cada mais cedo pros meus ! Não sabemos ainda todas as sequelas causadas por nossa profissão, nem as consequências no corpo e na mente , como falo pros meus amigos" Esse lance de esquecer as coisas é até bom , por que vc esquece o Q é ruim tb kkkkk " piadas a parte estive presente a uma palestra sobra concussion ( pequenos dando cerebrais causados por impacto) de 15 sintomas apresentado pelo especialista , eu tinha 12 !
