UFC welterweight Michel Pereira pulled off a number of crazy moves in his epic win against Zelim Imadaev – and even blew his doomed rival a kiss.
Appearing on the undercard of Alistair Overeem's victory against Augusto Sakai, the 27-year-old put on a show against his Russian opponent.
A clip of Pereira blowing a kiss to Imadaev inside the octagon has gone viral, with the Brazilian star following that up with a slap across his face.
And he even channelled his inner Brock Lesnar as he pulled off a suplex, before submitting Imadaev in the third round with a rear-naked choke.
His antics saw him pocket an extra £38,000 after winning the Performance of the Night bonues.
Pereira was quick to call out Jorge Masvidal after the 24th victory of his career, as he claimed he wants a shot at the 'baddest motherf*****' belt.
In his post-fight interview, he roared: "Dana White, Sean Shelby. I want the BMF belt. Jorge Masvidal, beware. You are next."
He later added: "I want to fight the best. I train very hard to do that and I train with some of the best.
"I want to fight the best and Jorge Masvidal is one of them.
"He’s a guy that I want to fight against.
"I think people would find it to be a great fight, a big fight, and it would give a show to all the UFC fans and the world."
Asked if he would slap Masvidal like he did with Imadaev, Pereira stated: "If he disrespects me, yeah.
"I want to fight with him and do a great fight, and with that, the fans of the UFC and MMA – they would enjoy a great show and a great fight. I want to fight him."
