Perfect night for Gustafsson as his girlfriend says 'yes' after KO win at UFC Fight Night 109

The Swede dominated Glover Teixeira through their fight on his home turf.

ALEXANDER GUSTAFSSON WAS lethal in delivery as he dominated Glover Teixeira in the main event of UFC Fight Night 109 on his home turf in Stockholm.

But that wasn’t all he had to smile about afterwards.

Following the fight, he proposed to his girlfriend in the cage. A ‘yes’ topped off a huge night for the Swede.

From the second round, Gustafsson took control of the fight. ‘The Mauler’ continued to overpower the Brazilian, and finally got the finish 67 seconds into the final round.

“I hit him with bombs and he just took every shot,” the eventual winner said afterwards. “He’s a great fighter. It’s an honor to fight him here in my hometown of Stockholm.”

He is now one step closer to a third shot at the 205 pound belt.
