Powell was unconscious for approximately five-minutes and LFA refrained from showing further footage of the finish or close-ups of Powell sleeping. He eventually opened his eyes and was able to sit on a stool. Powell was heard speaking with the medical team and could not remember that he was fighting. Fortunately, Powell was able to leave the cage on his own two feet.

Pereira is an elite striker with two notable kickboxing victories over reigning UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya; one by unanimous decision and one by knockout. He entered the fight with Powell boasting 50 combat sports fights — across kickboxing, boxing and MMA — on his record.
