Shane Del Rosario comments to MMAprime.

Del Rosario who is currently (11-0) in his MMA career.In his last outing he defeated Lavar Johnson in the first round via armbar.

Del Rosario comments on how he prefers using his speed and footwork to his advantage.

“I think that as a heavyweight I definitely have an advantage that I’m one of the faster heavyweights. Because of my Muay Thai background I do have good footwork. At our gym unfortunately we don’t have a lot of heavyweights but I think it’s helped me out because I train with a lot of smaller guys so in a sense, I fight like a smaller guy. I can move around, I got speed, I got quickness and it’s gonna do really well for me in the UFC against some of these bigger heavyweight guys.”
