The screen star teetered on a pair of black high-heeled shoes and her highlighted blonde hair tumbled down onto her shoulders.

Before handing over the metal plated belt, Halle could be seen standing alongside UFC president Dana White, 52, who she and boyfriend Van Hunt dined with at upscale Italian restaurant Scalinatella in Manhattan on Friday night.

Dana cut a dapper figure in a blue suit and a crisp white shirt which he wore open at the collar.

Halle and the UFC boss appear to have become friends during the filming of her upcoming directorial debut Bruised.

She stars as a down-on-her-luck MMA fighter who accepts an unsanctioned bout with a top fighter.

The sportswoman is also dealing with the return of her six-year-old son, whom she gave up for adoption when he was still a baby.
