Dada 5000 Gets Ready to Step Into the Octagon
Two years ago, I profiled Dhafir Harris, aka Dada 5000, backyard fight promoter and one-time
member of Kimbo Slice's entourage. Standing over six feet tall, weighing 275 pounds and sporting a mohawk that resembled a Spartan helmet, Harris cast a pretty menacing figure.
Since that New Times profile, filmmakers Rakontur and Spanish-language network Telemundo are currently developing documentaries based on Harris and his band of pugilists. And the Perrine Spartan is set make his pro fighting debut this Friday night at Rumble at the Rock 2, an MMA event at the Seminole Hard Rock Live in Hollywood. He is matched up against one Cedric James, another MMA aspirant.
