In February, Dhafir Jones AKA Dada 500 fought Kimbo Slice at Bellator 149 which turned out to be a complete an utter disaster. During the fight, Dada claims he suffered kidney failure and two heart attacks while in the cage and nearly died while he was being treated in the hospital shortly thereafter.
In an interview with MMAFighting.com, Dada feels that his health scare was attributed to him being out of shape but because there was something in his water.
f I was going to have kidney failure, if I was going to have a heart attack, I would have had it in practice,” said Dada 5000. “When I was doing 10-minute rounds in sparring and grappling, everybody would get a break except me. I was in shape. A lot of people may think I was not in shape. But no, being in shape had nothing to do with it. This sh*t was bigger than being in or out of shape. These guys were looking to take me out at all costs. The inflammation that I’m going to submit is documented. Don’t take my word for it. It’s documented. And when Kimbo Slice feels like sh*t or anybody that’s involved, they’re going to know Dada 5000 took this seriously. They try to say, ‘Hey, he took the fight too soon. He cut weight too fast.’ You know, man. I was cleared by all the medical doctors. Don’t try to throw that out there as scapegoat because I don’t need it. I was cleared and ready to fight. I felt great up until the time I started taking and drinking that water out of the back dressing room. I’m telling you guys this.”
MMA Fighting’s Marc Raimondi who interviewed Harris asked Dada if he thought Kimbo Slice’s team was involved in messing with his water.
“If it is, we’re going to find out,” said Dada 5000. “But the truth of the matter is that I felt horrible after I started drinking that water. This is bigger than me. There is a lot of money on the line; millions and millions of dollars were on the betting line. I don’t know who it could have been, but I know it was not natural…”
If there was any drugs or poison in his system I’m sure doctors would have found it when he was in the hospital under observation after the fight. All this sounds like is someone who is trying to save face to salvage whatever little is left of his MMA career.
