Love him or hate him, Dada picked up where Kimbo left off and help put Miami and its fighters on the map. He hosted bareknuckle events that birthed guys like Level. Dada himself made a run as a professional MMA fighter in Bellator, after a few streak of wins of bare knuckle fights. He ended up fighting Kimbo Slice, in what was Kimbo’s last professional fight before his passing. The fight was criticised by fight fans but in that fight, Dada nearly died, having his kidneys fail and experiencing two heart attacks post fight. We love him as a promoter and hope to have him continue to be involved in the Miami fight scene.
