— UFC (@ufc) May 28, 2017
UFC Fight Night 109 delivered Sweden their first card in nearly two and a half years, with Alexander Gustafsson and Glover Teixeira throwing down to round up the UFC light heavyweight division’s top 5. With Anthony Johnson retired and out of the picture (Rumble Johnson brutally KOd both of them), Gus and Glover could make a case for a title shot with a powerful showing. A powerful showing is exactly what we got from Alexander Gustafsson. Hell, it was such a good performance he got engaged!

Oezdimir was getting worked for the few seconds this fight was happening, then he caught Cirkunov right behind the ear as he was closing the distance and it was over. Impressive.
