He has died. Kramar69 (talk) 03:09, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done Unless there are reliable, third party sources that confirm this, we can't add it to the article. Mike VTalk 03:29, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

Larger news sites are starting to pick it up, still may not meet reliability guidelines though http://uproxx.com/sports/kimbo-slice-dead-ufc-ultimate-fighter-elitexc/ TheNeutroniumAlchemist (talk) 03:38, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

Haven't seen anything official out yet. TMZ reporting - that's where all the media is getting it but still no official statement from family. Spleen1666 (talk) 03:41, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

Confirmed Death[edit]

He has indeed died ([1], [2], [3], [4], [5], [6], [7]). --Bennyaha (talk) 03:36, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

To add a few - BJpenn.com, Daily Caller, CBS12. Acidskater (talk) 03:38, 7 June 2016 (UTC)
It's sad but true theres alot of sites covering it now its probably safe to add it to the article. 108.34.218.23 (talk) 03:44, 7 June 2016 (UTC)
ESPN just confirmed it. (YourAuntEggma (talk) 03:51, 7 June 2016 (UTC))

@Acidskater: All the sources you've provided are not very reliable and quote each other. We need more evidence than just a tweet. Respectfully, I don't think you read the Daily Caller article. The first line says, "Kimbo Slice has reportedly died at the age of 42, though no reports have been confirmed." It's important that we remember that Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, not a newspaper looking to get the first scoop. Mike VTalk 03:49, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

Okie dokie. Acidskater (talk) 04:09, 7 June 2016 (UTC)
Was just adding ESPN source when YourAuntEggma beat me to the punch. TMZ is QUESTIONABLE so good to have other sources. EvergreenFir (talk) Please {{re}} 04:21, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

When searching for this page, the result refers to him as a professional wrestler. He was a bodyguard and MMA fighter, not a pro wrestler. Please change this. 160.147.251.94 (talk) 12:23, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

Padlock-silver-open.svg Not done: The page's protection level has changed since this request was placed. You should now be able to edit the page yourself. If you still seem to be unable to, please reopen the request with further details. Cannolis (talk) 20:38, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

Ferguson or Slice?[edit]

A third of his page uses his surname; a third uses the first half of his ring name; the remainder uses the last half. Please use one or the other for consistency. — Wyliepedia 10:55, 5 July 2016 (UTC)
