He's faster, more agile - solid grappler, he's a better striker - than Antonio Silva. He's not like a kid - he has good fight experience. What else does he have to do to fight a 'name' like Antonio Silva? If you win you move up and fight someone ranked better - Antonio Silva among a few other 'names' make sense. Arlovski needs to retire for his own good just like Chuck Liddell.
Resario is in a good camp, 11-0 by finish at 27 it's time to fight. As much as you may dislike the UFC, atleast top prospects get a shot, if they win they fight better competition, keep moving up. They don't preserve 'names.'
Are you serious?!
I thought you were gonna say something smart!
Guess i was wrong!
First of all - Del Rosario looks like a very promissing prospect! But ...there's a big BUT:
Look at Del Rosario's proffesional record - the fighters that he beat!
Then take a look at Antonio Silva's proffesional record:
he has wins over 2 former UFC champions and the former Pride champion and the fighter regarded by many as the best HW ever. And he brutalized Fedor like never before.
Silva is a BJJ Black Belt, a Judo Black Belt and a Karate Black Belt.
Plus he's much stronger than Del Rosario.
You are dreaming unicorns if you think Del Rosario would stand a chance against Silva at this moment.
Maybe in 2-3 years he would stand a chance.
If he trains his ass off, if he learns some legit BJJ and striking.
Get serious pls!
