(Scroll down for video) A professional UFC fighter was killed after a brief argument with the driver of a truck who tailgated him for several blocks, according to police in Canada.

Edmonton police have arrested two men in connection with the death of the fighter.

One suspect was been charged with murder and the other was charged as an accomplice. 34-year-old Ryan Jimmo of Phoenix, Arizona, took his girlfriend, Roxie Reece, to Edmonton, as part of an extended vacation.

Reece told police that Jimmo had proposed to her just hours before he was killed. The two lovebirds had spent a night at the movies, like any other couple.

During the movie, Jimmo told Reece that she is the most beautiful woman he ever saw. He then said that he wanted to marry her and have children with together.

Reece accepted his proposal. While they were driving home, two men in a pickup truck tailgated their vehicle. The newly engaged couple drove into a parking lot, but the truck followed them.

Jimmo stopped his car and went out to confront the driver of the truck. They exchanged words, and when Jimmo was walking back to his car, the driver of the truck sped up and ran over the fighter.

Jimmo was rushed to hospital, where he died of his wounds.

Jimmo and Reece met for the first time just two months before his death.
