Alexander “The Mauler” Gustafsson will soon be trading in that vicious nickname for a much softer one. In two months’ time we can all start calling him Alexander “The Father” Gustaffson. It certainly has a nice ring to it.
Gustaffson (17-4) took to his Instagram account this morning to post the announcement that he will be having a baby girl. In the post, Alex explains the fears of becoming a father for the first time, but appears ready and excited to take on the challenge.
The Mauler made a big name for himself when he battled then UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones to a razor thin decision loss in 2013. It was hailed as Fight of the Year and is one of Ariel Helwani’s all-time favorite fights.
We here at MikeSwick.com would like to congratulate Alex on this tremendous honor and wish him and his little one on the way continued health and happiness.
