This was a memorable few minutes for Alexander Gustafsson.

After knocking out Glover Teixeira with a brutal uppercut-right hand combo at UFC Stockholm on Sunday, the Swedish light heavyweight dropped to a knee and proposed to his girlfriend, who is pregnant with their child.

"I love you, and thanks for having our kid, our baby," The Mauler said. "I love you with all my heart. Do you want to marry me?"

She said yes as his local fans cheered loudly.
