Rumors of the death of MMA fighter Kimbo Slice have been greatly exaggerated. Slice, whose “government name” is Kevin Ferguson, was mistaken by someone on Twitter for a gentleman of the same name that died over the weekend.
Mr. Slice himself was alerted to his fans’ concerns, and logged on to reassure everyone. “I’m straight, y’all,” he tweeted. “Thnkx for the concern. Some1 else with the same name passed away earlier from my old neighborhood.”
