Dhafir Harris, a.k.a. Dada 5000, was in critical condition after his fight vs. Kimbo Slice on Friday, and his heart stopped beating, according to CNN and Bleacher Report’s Jeremy Botter.

Dada 5000 was stretchered out of the venue after the fight, but he is now in stable condition following the scare.

The fighter had high levels of potassium in his system, which was “likely caused by his 40-pound weight loss in preparation for the fight,” according to a statement from Harris’ family.
