When Alexander Gustafsson sent Glover Teixeira to the canvas in Stockholm, it was the culmination of one of the Swede’s most impressive performances.

Repeatedly dropping Teixeira with multiple punch combinations, Gustafsson eventually earned his victory in the fifth round, knocking out the Brazilian after a series of devastating blows.

Naturally, his win — along with Teixeira’s toughness — received plenty of praise from well known figures in the mixed martial arts community, including one particularly interesting comment who was once known as ‘Rumble’.
