Featured in UFC 301, Michael Pereira lives uncertainty about maintaining victory in the face of Ihor Potieria. Following an appeal by his rival to the Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission, which demands a change in the result due to an alleged illegal strike, the middleweight (up to 83,9kg) released slow-motion images of the action that led to the process. The video was shared by the 'UFC da Depression' profile.

In the images (see below), it is possible to see the moment when Pereira launches the backflip. Ihor claims to have been hit squarely in the head.
