UFC fighter proposes to girlfriend inside the cage


UFC fighter proposes to girlfriend inside the cage
This couple got engaged inside a cage

UFC fighter Jessica Andrade knows a thing or two about rings, so it was not surprise she wanted to propose inside of one.

The Brazilian fought against reigning champion Joanna Jędrzejczyk, from Poland, in the co-main event of UFC 211 Saturday night in Dallas.

While she may have lost the cage fight in five rounds, the 25-year-old held her own in one of the biggest fights of her career.

Following the fight, commentator Joe Rogan handed the microphone to Andrade and asked if she had anything to say.

‘Today, I’d like to make a special request to my girlfriend, Fernanda, who is here,’ said Andrade. ‘I want to ask her in marriage.’

Reports state Andrade’s girlfriend gave a thumbs up from the crowd.

The in-cage proposal was a first for the UFC, and not just because it was between two women.

Coincidentally, it happened on the same day as another same-sex UFC couple got engaged.

Straw-weight Tecia Torres and bantamweight Raquel Pennington announced in Twitter, after moving in together, Pennington had popped the question.
