UFC 146 Results: 5 Fights for Shane Del Rosario to Take Next
Shane Del Rosario - Esther Lin/MMAFighting

The hype surrounding undefeated prospect Shane Del Rosario came tumbling down at UFC 146.

After over a year layoff, the former Strikeforce heavyweight was stopped at 3:14 of the second round of his UFC debut by Stipe Miocic.

The loss is definitely a tough roadblock for a promising career. Del Rosario was considered by many as potentially the next major superstar in the heavyweight division, but an incredibly tough comeback opponent and over a year of inactivity hurt him in the end.

Despite this minor setback, Del Rosario, who was sidelined after being hit by a drunk driver in a serious car accident, is lucky to still be alive and fighting.

Former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir can relate. He was out for nearly two years after a serious motorcycle accident. It took him well over a year to get back into the competition flow and return to form.

At 28 years of age, Del Rosario is still a young, budding talent. Can he pick up the pieces and get back to his winning ways?

Here are five fights for him to take next.
