UFC star Joanna Jedrzejczyk has updated fans on her condition after the horrific hematoma she suffered against Zhang Weili at UFC 248.
Jedrzejczyk's defeat to Weili was dubbed as one of the best women's bouts in UFC history and the war left the 32-year-old with a grotesque injury.
The Polish fighter was taken to hospital after suffering swelling to her face and cheeks and she's been seen on social media with bruising all over her face.
But she posted a picture to Instagram on Wednesday to show that she is inching closer to a full recovery.
Jedrzejczyk was rushed to hospital following the fight but she was discharged the following day after suffering 'no significant injuries' according to her team.
Many in the fight world have shown Jedrzejczyk respect following her injury but one man who hasn't is controversial welterweight Colby Covington.
Covington tore into 'Jorge Masvidal's little sidepiece' by saying nobody cares about Jedrzejczyk following her defeat at the T-Mobile Arena.
Speaking to Submission Radio, Covington pulled no punches during a scathing rant on his American Top Team teammate.
"As far as Joanna Jedrzejczyk, you know, [Jorge Masvidal's] little sidepiece, they got a little fling going on right now, I could give a fuck less about her," 'Chaos' explained.
"She's washed up, nobody cares about her. She used to be the boogiewoman, now she's the boobie woman. Look at her face. She got her face rearranged, and I called it.
"In the beginning of the week, the week before her fight, I put a video saying, hey guys, Joanna wants an apology from me, so here I am for my apology," he added.
"Joanna, I'm sorry. I'm sorry that you had to get your face rearranged and everybody's going to get rich at mybookie.ag. And that's exactly what happened, I got rich. I made a Rolex off of Joanna Jedrzejczyk's bitch ass."
Jedrzejczyk has since responded, stating per MMA Fighting:
"He's not a very polite or a smart guy, so he doesn't know what to do.
"He needs other people to make himself big, so I don't want to talk about this guy, you know. I can tell you guys that it's a shame for us... it's a shame that he's talking crap like this. It's all ugly things. He's a dirty guy and I don't want to talk about, I just don't want to talk about it."
