Alexander Gustafsson proposes to girlfriend after beating Glover Teixeira
Alexander Gustafsson turned in a great performance in the main event of UFC Fight Night in Stockholm, Sweden, knocking out fellow light heavyweight contender Glover Teixeira in the final round with a trio of uppercuts and the fight-ending right hand.
At the end of his post-fight interview, Gustafsson asked for his girlfriend, Moa Antonia Johansson, to enter the cage. He then said the following:
“I love you and thanks for having a kid, a baby. I love you with all my heart, and will you marry me?”
Johansson said yes, and the crowd cheered for the couple as they embraced.
This is the second time this month a UFC fighter has popped the big question inside the Octagon. Strawweight title challenger Jessica Andrade proposed to her partner after her UFC 211 loss to Joanna Jedrzejczyk, and the response was also a yes.
