IIRC it was. Can't use the search on mobile. I didn't mind the guy but there was definitely something up towards the end. His fight with Dada 5000 was horrific. The way both men gassed after a round and led to a TKO via exhaustion. It took balls to get into a ring with no viable professional level training though. Not a legend but definitely gutsy.

Re: Boxing/MMA

Can't find it, if it exists

As far as I'm aware he had serious heart complications, not sure if that was fully aware of before he had fights with Dada 5000 or Shamrock. Problem was, he wasn't exactly training hard enough for fights, it's an accepted likelihood that he was doping throughout his MMA career too and was laid back in training which I doubt helped the condition he was in and would later expand into him needing a heart transplant.

It's worth noting Dada 5000 essentially died after the fight and had to be revived.

Thanks Adzii . Kimbo was someone I first saw purely by accident on youtube. He was a fierce looking guy but of course MMA fights with pros are a whole different ball game. There was mention of 'heart failure' and 'a liver mass'. The doping looks likely. Sad that he is gone though; he was instantly recognisable and, all things said and done, he was only 42. Not sure Baby Slice will enjoy that level of charisma.

Re: Boxing/MMA

Absolute madness at the Andre Dirrell and Jose Uzcategui fight.

Uzcategui landed after the bell and floored Dirrell, naturally everyone is calling for his head and everyone comes to the same conclusion, easy DQ. He does indeed land after the bell and fairly cleanly, however the context building up to that point is muddled. Firstly, it's apparent that Uzcategui had landed after the bell in previous rounds. Then you have to account for him being in full flow, a three punch combination, the third shot being the main focus for the after the bell shot, then you have to account for the referee himself to call for the 5 second to bell mark, in which the bell then went off 3 seconds later.

All that is present in the above clip.

Then after the DQ decision, someone from Dirrell's corner comes and throws a sucker punch at Uzcategui:

DQ decision could go either way, maybe a points deduction given the circumstances surrounding the shot after the bell and a 5 minute recovery for Andre Dirrell.

The corner man is currently wanted for assault.
