UFC Heavyweight Shane Del Rosario in Critical Condition Following Cardiovascular Collapse

Jesus. Less than 24 hours after hearing the story of UFC featherweight Matt Grice’s miraculous recovery from a September car crash that left him in critical condition, it is being reported that UFC heavyweight and Strikeforce veteran Shane Del Rosario has suffered a “full cardiac collapse” and is currently resting in “critically ill” condition in the hospital. Del Rosario’s manager, Jason House, released an official statement earlier today:

Shane had a catastrophic cardiovascular collapse at home on Tuesday morning. He was brought to the hospital in full cardiac arrest. He was resuscitated in the emergency room back to a stable heart rhythm and blood pressure. He is currently in the coronary care unit critically ill. Our prayers are with him and his family.

Del Rosario was scheduled to take on Guto Inocente at UFC 168 until a rib injury forced him out of the contest. It is not known whether the rib injury and cardiovascular collapse are related, but we will keep you updated on Rosario’s condition as information is made available.

CagePotato would like to let the Rosario family know that our thoughts and prayers are with them all in this difficult time. To wish Shane a smooth recovery, head over to his Twitter page.

Former UFC Fighter and Bellator Signee Maiquel Falcao Suffers a Heart Attack

According to multiple sources, UFC veteran and recent Bellator signee Maiquel “Big Rig” Falcao suffered a heart attack in training this past weekend, the cause of which has yet to be determined. His manager has stated the following:

Maiquel is still on the Intensive Care Unit and might stay there for few more days, when he’ll go through a catheterization. He’s lucid and improving fast.

Falcao’s lone octagon appearance, a decision victory over TUF 7 alum Gerald Harris, was memorable for a multitude of reasons. Not only did a timing error deny Falcao nearly 7 seconds to finish a rear naked choke on Harris in the first round (one which even Dana White though Harris would have tapped to), but the third round would become an exercise in tedium as neither fighter would engage. Bizarre to say the least, made all the more disappointing by the fact that Falcao had been so dominant up to that point over a tough guy in Harris.

(R.I.P., big fella)

Ross Clifton, the MMA fighter perhaps best known for his bout with Ken Shamrock at a February Wargods event, is reportedly dead of a heart attack at 32, according to MMA Weekly.  He was found by his wife on Friday morning.  His trainer, Cal Worsham, confirmed the news and described Clifton as "a jovial teddy bear in the body of a grizzly."  Clifton began his pro career in 2001 and most recently lost via first-round TKO against Rick Vardell in July.  Thoughts, prayers, whatever you do…
