UFC fighter celebrates KO victory by proposing to girlfriend

Gustafsson's Sunday couldn't have gone any better; emphatically win the main event in front of your home fans, your girlfriend says yes to your marriage proposal, then you pick up a $50,000 bonus for Fight of the Night honors.

It was a stunning display from start to finish, as Gustafsson had clearly scouted Teixeira thoroughly. Following his victory, Gustafsson made it clear why he considers Jones his "biggest enemy".

Gustafsson, number two contender Teixeira (26-5) won in his last fight and is pumped up to continue rolling all the way to another crack at the title.

Gustafsson also fought extremely smartly, by moving back to the centre of the Octagon each time Teixeira charged forwards to land a knockout.

Teixeira was knocked down in the third round but refused to go quietly.

Still scattered rain and thunderstorm chances Saturday , and Sunday , which could have an impact on the Parade and Indy 500. Highs on Thursday will boost into the upper 70s, before slightly warmer weather moves in to start Memorial Day Weekend .

Gustafsson followed up with a barrage of punches that sent Teixeira crashing to the mat and it appeared the fight was just seconds from being stopped.

A rematch between Jones and Gustafsson has been long requested, although it has yet to come to fruition due to Jones' issues outside of the cage and a few setbacks for "The Mauler" inside the cage.

"I hit him with bombs and he took every shot", Gustafsson said. "Show these boy's how to throw an uppercut the Right way!"

Cormier and Jones are expected to face each other in the comings months for the belt.
