Dada 5000 has uploaded a shocking image of his condition in hospital following his Bellator 149 fight with Kimbo Slice.
Dada, real name Dhafir Harris, was stretchered from the ring after the fight in February with many presuming he was suffering from exhaustion.
The grim truth that Dada nearly died was soon revealed. Dada was severely dehydrated, suffered kidney failure, two heart attacks, and technically died.

As reported by MMA Mania, it certainly sounds like Dada has regained his fighting spirit.
It would probably be best if the 38-year-old resisted the urge to put his gloves back on though.
