UFC on FOX 7 Video: Benson Henderson Proposes to His Girlfriend, Is Loudly Booed

(Insert toothpick gag. Video via

Who says romance is dead? In case you missed the end of the UFC on FOX 7 broadcast on Saturday, Benson Henderson celebrated his title defense against Gilbert Melendez by proposing to his girlfriend Maria. Now, whether you support public marriage proposals or not — I don’t, way too risky — Henderson definitely miscalculated the goodwill of the San Jose crowd, who booed the fight’s decision as soon as it was read, and booed even harder when Bendo dropped to one knee, furious at seeing the enemy walk away with a title belt and a fiance.

“I’m not perfect, I never have been,” Henderson told his lady. “But you make me happier every single day, more than any man has a right to be. I love you. Will you marry me?”

Maria accepted, and then hung out in the background for a minute while Henderson finished off the interview. By the way, this was the first time that Henderson didn’t start off a UFC post-fight interview by quoting Philippians 4:13. Let’s hope this doesn’t lead to any awkward moments at the next Zuffa Christmas party.

Whether you think Ben's girl is hot or not, Junior dos Santos is jealous.

I'll take Ben Henderson's aw shucks bible thumping any day over that smug sack of shit Jon Jones and his high horse. Jones is basically like a black Matt Hughes. I'd set the over-under on Jones dumping his old lady at 24 months. Any takers?

@Tai-Pan: He has done the "All Things Through Christ" spiel after every UFC fight he's had. This was the first time he didn't do it so he could instead get booed by San Jose some more.

I'm not saying Ben's galpal is ugly...I'm just saying she can eat an apple thru a fence.

Arguably the best and worst day of bens life

@BigDaddyD - I don't think anyone was calling her ugly, just that it's sappy doing the whole proposal thing in the cage after his win on live TV.
Tai-Pan- April 22, 2013 at 9:47 am
I think it's been a few fights since he did the whole quoting "All things through Christ Bro". Not that I'm defending him, he's a fucking douche.

Doctor should have immediately stepped in and demanded a full nerou work up. Obviously Ben suffered a serious injury and was in need of serious medical attention

No need for a toothpick gag, just watching this made me gag already.

I thought the proposal was fucking lame, but not as much as the decision.
nick diaz and the dub sack- April 22, 2013 at 6:47 am
Stay classy San Jose. No wait, I meant go fuck yourself
