UFC heavyweight fighter Shane Del Rosario has passed away according to Twitter message from both his roommate Ian McCall, and teammate Carla Esparza.
Del Rosario, 30, had been in critical condition in a Newport Beach, CA, hospital since 11/26, when he suffered a cardiovascular collapse. He was not expected to survive the week at the time, and while there were reports things were turning around for hte better, his manager, Jason House, told Ariel Helwani last week those reports were not the case.
It was believed Del Rosario was suffering from a rare heart ailment called Long QT Syndrome.
UFC has not released a statement at this time, which may be out of deference to the family.
