UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson was able to hold on to his 155-pound title on Saturday night after a razor thin decision victory over former Strikeforce champion Gilbert Melendez at UFC on FOX 7 at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California.

Following his win, Henderson went away from the typical post-fight interview and called his girlfriend in to the cage. You could see what was coming as Henderson got down on one knee and asked for her hand in marriage. An in cage proposal was certainly a UFC first.

Here is Henderson’s proposal following his title win over Melendez, via Zombie Prophet on Twitter:

Nice moment for Henderson, but I don’t think proposing to your girlfriend while you are getting booed is the most romantic approach.
