Whoever says there is no such thing as a ring in the UFC is sorely mistaken, as Alexander Gustafsson proposed to girlfriend in the octagon.
The Swede impressed with his fifth-round stoppage before making his day even more special.
Alexander Gustafsson was awarded fight of the night at UFC Sweden on Sunday before winning the heart of his girlfriend.
After knocking Glover Teixeira to the canvas he swept Moa Antonia Johansson off her feet with a successful proposal.
After he dropped down on one knee in the Octagon in a far more delicate manner than such a scene is used to, Johansson said yes.
All that was left for the local boy to do was show it’s possible to slip a ring on his love’s finger while still wearing gloves.
The fight alone would have made the night special enough for the 30-year-old Swede at the Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm.
UFC Fight Night 109’s feature showdown came between two fighters with designs on the light-heavyweight belt and Gustafsson staked his claim on a shot.
Now he’ll eagerly await if he gets a shot at the winner of the upcoming rematch between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier the light-heavyweight title.
