The 28-year-old fighter was pronounced dead at St. Barnabas Hospital, police said.
Kolenovic was at a restaurant around 4 a.m. Sunday when several other men got into an argument. Kolenovic followed the men outside and, according to his uncle, tried to placate the other men.
One of the men involved in the quarrel got into a sport-utility vehicle and drove it onto the sidewalk, hitting Kolenovic, witnesses and police said. The driver then fled.
