UFC star Joanna Jedrzejczyk has shared her remarkable recovery from horrific facial injuries sustained in her defeat to Weili Zhang at UFC 248 earlier this month.

The Polish MMA fighter was taken to hospital after their mammoth five-round scrap but had been discharged the following morning, with her team reassuring supporters that she had escaped significant damage.

And the former strawweight champion recently uploaded a photo to Instagram, which reveals the extent of her transformation less than a few weeks after being left disfigured.

Despite Zhang having been announced as the winner by split decision at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena, Jedrzejczyk remained in good spirits despite the grisly war wounds sustained during one of the greatest women’s fight in the history of UFC.

According to MMA Mania, both warriors were hit with a two-month medical suspension by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. 

The veteran Pole also shared a video message with her social media followers last week, but was notably still sporting bruising from the gruelling contest. 

To further prove her eagerness to bounce back from defeat, Jedrzejczyk has also shed light on her training routines – with the star also having to work out at home during the coronavirus pandemic. 

Jedrzejczyk may have been rendered barely recognisable, but she found the time to congratulate Zhang after the bout.

Despite her devastating defeat, Jedrzejczyk was humble and congratulated Zhang afterwards

‘It doesn’t matter, I carry myself as a champ with the belt or without,’ the 32-year-old said.

‘I was very proud of her, congrats Weili.’

Both fighters were caught by heavy punches early on in Las Vegas, and the pressure was applied back and forth with a winner by points not obvious.

In the end, the Chinese 30-year-old was given the nod, 28-27 by two judges while one judge scored it the same but to Jedrzejczyk.

And afterwards, Zhang used her victory to show support and speak out on coronavirus, which heavily impacted her journey to the United States.
