Alex Nicholson is a lover, not a fighter.
Well, actually, he’s a lover and a fighter.
The UFC light-heavyweight proposed to his girlfriend Friday during the UFC Fight Night: Hendricks vs. Thompson weigh-ins.
It’s one thing to step into the Octagon, but it also takes serious guts to pop the question in your underwear in front of a large group of mixed martial arts fans. Luckily, she said yes.
Nicholson is 6-1 as a pro and making his UFC debut Saturday against 10-2 Canadian Misha Cirkunov.
The event was originally scheduled to be UFC 196, however after both headliners — heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum and former champ Cain Velasquez — pulled out due to injuries the UFC changed it to a Fight Night card.
