In what was truly a magical night for Alexander Gustafsson, the former two-time Light Heavyweight title contender capped off the evening by proposing to his girlfriend inside the Octagon following his huge win at UFC Fight Night 109 in Stockholm, Sweden.
Thankfully, she said yes, as the happy couple now get to plan their future wedding, and life together after welcoming their baby girl into the world just a few weeks ago.
As for “The Mauler’s” performance, it was absolutely extraordinary, as he schooled one of the hardest-hitting fighters in the sport on the feet, peppering Glover Teixeira at will for five rounds before scoring an amazing walk off knockout that hand fans screaming at the top of their lungs for their hometown hero.
The win solidifies his spot at the next contender for the 205-pound strap, as he will likely face the winner of the upcoming rematch between Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones, which is expected to go down at UFC 214 on July 29, 2017 in Anaheim, California.
