After nearly two full weeks in hospital, Dada 5000 finally released

Dhafir Harris, otherwise known as Dada 5000, has finally been released from a hospital nearly two full weeks after his bout with Kimbo Slice at Bellator 149.

On March 3, a representative from the Dada camp posted on the fighter’s official Facebook page:

“This is @Joserivero Dada 5000 has been released from the Hospital and is now back home in South Florida. He wants all his supporters to know he appreciates them and is nothing without them. He will soon be available to tell his story….
Dada invites you to see for all the bare knuckle fights in BYB Battleship 1 at ”

Harris was hospitalized Feb. 19 after had experienced accumulated extremely high levels of potassium in his blood which led to severe dehydration, fatigue and renal failure. The high potassium levels were likely caused by his 40lbs weight loss in preparation for the fight.

Here was an update from his family last week.
