At the weekend he put on another show landing a stunning head kick KO of Procházka that ended their bout in the second round.

Prior to the fight, the Brazilian had confirmed reports that he had negotiated a total purse of $3 million [£2.36 million] to take on the Czech fighter again.

It’s also emerged that UFC President Dana White handed Pereira a cool $303,000 [£238,654] for his sensational performance just moments after its conclusion.

His coach Plinio Cruz said: “He [Pereira] was talking to Dana in the back, and they were talking about a bunch of stuff, and Dana said, ‘As a matter of fact, you won Performance of the Night.’

“And he said, ‘$303,000?’ He goes, ‘No, no, no, $50,000.

“I think because of all their history and then taking the fight on two weeks’ [notice], Dana looked at him and said, ‘You know what, man? I’m going to take care of you.

“You’ve got the $303,000.’ He even joked, he said buy a supercar with that money.

“Pereira goes, ‘I’ve got enough supercars.’ He wants a Cybertruck.

This meant his total purse of $3.305 million [£2.6 million] has eclipsed the estimated $2.85 million [£2.24 million] that he earned for beating Jamahal Hill at UFC 300 earlier in the year.

Elsewhere on the card, Irishman Ian Garry pocketed a reported $86,000 [£67,737] for his win over Michael ‘Venom’ Page, with the latter receiving $200,000 [£157,528].
