Joanna Jedrzejczyk Shows Off Her Badly Bruised Face In Video

It's a week since Joanna Jedrzejczyk faced off against Zhang Weili, in what has been called one of the greatest UFC bouts ever. The 32-year-old has now shared a video showing the extent of her injuries, revealing her now discoloured face following the beating she endured. Yikes.

Following her brutal defeat in the split-decision contest, the Polish fighter was left with a badly beaten and swollen head, causing many to worry for her health.

Updating fans on her condition, she said: "I still have so many bruises on my face and my chest.

"The swelling has gone down and I'm feeling better so it's all good."

I think we can all agree that it's great to see her on the road to recovery.

Thirty-year-old Weili took the win in a split-decision from judges, with one scoring 48-47 to Jedrzejczyk and the other two scoring it 48-47 for Weili.

Both fighters were taken to hospital after the fight and images of Jedrzejczyk show just how hard Weili fought to retain her belt.

Jedrzejczyk looked unrecognisable due to the haematoma on her forehead causing massive swelling.

Speaking after the fight, Jedrzejczyk, 32, said: "You see my swellness, I felt this. She did great. There was something missing, but I felt all the punches you know.

"From the third round the swellness was bothering me and I felt it was just getting more and more swollen and my head was like going on and off. But all good, congrats Zhang and I'm very happy we gave you a good fight."

The pair's efforts were awarded 'Fight of the Night' ahead of the main event between Israel Adesanya and Yoel Romero.

Following the fight, UFC boss Dana White told press that both women need to concentrate on getting over their injuries before they even consider thinking about a rematch.

White said: "Did you see what those two girls looked like after that fight? They're both in the hospital right now.

"They did not go to a press conference, they did not talk to press, they both went straight to the hospital.

"They need to go home, take time to heal up and everything else before I even mention a fight with either one of them again."
