Kimbo Slice passed away on Monday at the age of 42.

Despite his humble roots as a backyard brawler, Slice spent the past decade working his way up to professional MMA, even crossing paths with the UFC at one point and becoming an Ultimate Fighter alumn. He participated in several of the most-watched moments in the sport's history, and undoubtedly helped the MMA community to grow and reach new audiences.
