Dada 5000 stated spoke of divine intervention bringing him back to the world after technically dying twice after his fight with Kimbo Slice, he also believes someone’s intervention put him in hospital to begin with.
Speaking with MMA Fighting’s Marc Raimondi, Dada – AKA Dhafir Harris – revealed a potential poisoning conspiracy set him on the path to kidney failure and cardiac arrest.
The Florida brawler did not point the finger outright at Kimbo’s camp, but implied Slice’s PED use suggested he was out to cheat his opponent.
If I was going to have kidney failure, if I was going to have a heart attack, I would have had it in practice. 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…
You guys want to hurt me over a fight? Just train, man, and come on and beat me hands down. If you want to beat me, you have to cheat me. I didn’t sign up for that. And now everybody wants to condone this and give this guy another fight. Where’s the punishment in that? They said three months, but guess what, he was fighting three or four months apart anyway, so he was going to be on his down time anyway. So that’s not going to affect him.
The man has been through a lot, but this doesn’t exactly sound plausible.
Surely hospital blood tests would have flagged up anything that suggested foul play?
