Forget flowers, chocolates and candles – nothing says “you’re the special woman in my life” more than beating another man’s face off.
It certainly did the trick for rising UFC star Alexander Gustafsso, who battered rival Glover Teixeira to the canvas in a Fight Night feature showdown – then got down on one knee. For once, it wasn’t to deliver a roundhouse sweep kick, it was to propose to lucky girlfriend Moa Antonia Johansson.
He even managed to slip the ring on her finger while still wearing his gloves, although his rival’s blood probably helped with the lubrication.
Now he’ll get a shot at the light-heavyweight title where, fingers crossed, he will surprise his new bride once again by insisting on consummating the marriage in the middle of the octagon.
