UFC light heavyweight top contender Alexander Gustafsson earned possibly the biggest win of his UFC career on Sunday when he brutally dispatched former title challenger Glover Teixeira in front of a hometown crowd at UFC Fight Night from Sweden
Gustafsson landed his patented long uppercut early and often to get things started in Stockholm, and his elusive footwork made it nearly impossible for Teixeira to catch the rangy Swede.
According to FightMetric, Gustafsson outstruck Teixeira 108-62, including a flurry of punches that ended the fight late in the fifth and final round.
Gustafsson’s performance not only impressed fans but also a long list of fighters and former competitors alike. Check out what they had to say about “The Mauler’s” fantastic showing.
