According to a Jan. 28 report from FOX Sports, former MMA fighter and current UFC color commentator Kenny Florian proposed to world-renowned Glory ring girl Clark Gilmer, just weeks in advance of Valentine's Day.

“Had quite a few ninjas who helped me with this secret operation, a BIG thank you to you all who made this proposal a success! A master ninja, @James_law1 snapped some amazing photos. Here's one of them that captured @ClarkGilmer in the moment. I love this girl so much but it didn't stop me from 'punking her'," Florian wrote on Instagram, alongside a photo of himself proposing.

Gilmer, 25, was clearly impressed, as she took to Twitter to reveal the good news to her fans.

"He PROPOSED!!! I feel like the luckiest girl in the world. My lover and best friend @kennyflorian proposed!" Gilmer tweeted.

The proposal was a slick move by the 37-year-old Florian, who last fought in the UFC in 2011.

Valentine's Day is just two weeks away, and the holiday will clearly be extra sweet this year for Gilmer.

With the proposal, Florian and Gilmer instantly become one of the hottest celebrity power couples in the MMA realm.

Bryan Caraway and Miesha Tate have long been on top when it comes to MMA power couples, but Florian and Gilmer may have taken the top spot on the mantle with their recent engagement.

Florian has been extremely busy since his retirement from MMA. He is a co-host of "UFC Tonight," and also works as a color commentator on UFC broadcasts.

As for Gilmer, she is a critically-acclaimed model and actress, but is perhaps best known for her work as a ring girl for the Glory kickboxing promotion.
