UFC star Joanna Jedrzejczyk has delivered a positive update after she was left with a horrific hematoma injury during a brutal fight with Zhang Weili earlier this month.
Jedrzejczyk’s defeat at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena has since been dubbed as the greatest women’s fight in the history of UFC and it came at a rather gruesome price for the 32-year-old.
The veteran Pole was barely recognisable as Weili was announced as the winner by split-decision at UFC 248 and she was later taken to hospital where she was treated for the enormous swelling to her forehead and cheeks.
But despite her grisly war wounds, Jedrzejczyk was discharged from hospital the following morning and her team reassured supporters that she had sustained ‘no significant injuries’.
Jedrzejczyk appeared in good spirits as she reached out to her fans just over a week ago but she was still sporting significant bruising all over her face in her video message.
However, the former UFC strawweight champion uploaded another picture on Wednesday which shows just how far she has come with her recovery in such a short space of time.

Jedrzejczyk also uploaded a series of Instagram stories which showed her working out at home in self-isolation amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Though Jedrzejczyk will have been advised to take it easy in the wake of her savage defeat at the hands of Weili, she has been involved in a bitter war of words with Colby Covington who she wants kicked out of American Top Team.
‘I don’t want to talk about Colby because he is such a liar,’ Jedrzejczyk told ESPN MMA.
‘The thing is he wants this exposure he needs this attention because he has nothing to offer to the world.
‘He is a great athlete, such a hard worker, but it isn’t him. Someone is writing this for, and I know who does it.
‘I feel sorry to him that he needs to jump on me, Jorge [Masvidal], Dustin Poirier. We are such hard workers, very talented people, we are real warriors and he is trying to take advantage of us.
‘I don’t want to comment on that, he is such a liar you know.’
