UFC heavyweight fighter Shane del Rosario died Monday after suffering a cardiac arrest two weeks ago. Del Rosario was rushed to the hospital on Nov. 26 after another UFC fighter found him at home unresponsive. Del Rosario, 30, was rushed to the hospital and admitted, according to Fox Sports on Dec. 9.

The heavyweight fighter, who had no known previous heart trouble was in “full cardiac arrest” when he was found at home by Ian McCall, his training partner and roommate. McCall called 911 and administered CPR until the paramedics arrived.

McCall wrote on Twitter after del Rosario's death that his friend was helping him raise his daughter. Carla Esparza, the Invicta FC women’s strawweight champion wrote on Twitter:

"He was one of those few special people that you couldn't help but love. He was a rising star in the mma world, and it is so unfair that his light had to fade before his time. Team Oyama will never be the same without you Shane."

The UFC world is in morning today as someone so young and with a promising future dies before their time.
