Monday, 29 May 2017 : Gustafsson, who recently became a father, dominated the first round combining swift movement and precise striking to keep the 37-year-old Brazilian on the back foot.
With Teixeira’s sight hindered after an accidental eye poke, the Swede continued to exert pressure and landed a flurry of shots to knock down his opponent midway through round two.
With Daniel Cormier defending his light heavyweight title against Jon Jones at UFC 214 in July, Gustafsson will now be vying with British fighter Jimi Manuwa for the next available shot at the 205lb title, despite previously losing title fights to both Jones and Cormier.
“I hit him with bombs and he took every shot, he’s a great fighter” said Gustafsson about Teixeira, before calling his girlfriend, Moa Antonia Johansson, into the octagon and proposing to her.
