If a mediocre backyard brawler-turned mixed martial artist dies, does anyone in the MMA media notice?
It seemed that only the mainstream media outlets yesterday picked up on a story of the demise of Miami, Florida resident Kevin Ferguson — which is the legal name of Kimbo Slice. Maybe it was because it wasn’t Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson who had passed away, unless of course he had wifi access in the morgue.
The bearded bald-headed, Internet meme who is back in cahoots with Gary Shaw and is training for his boxing debut next year Tweeted the following at 1:00 am this morning:
Ferguson joins a growing list of fighters that includes Kimo Leopoldo and Badr Hari who have been reported dead by media sources in the past year-and-a-half.
I blame Jared Shaw for the failed publicity stunt.
