Joanna Jedrzejczyk Reveals The True Extent Of Her Hematoma Injury And It Sounds Terrifying
Joanna Jedrzejczyk claims she went blind for two days after sustaining a horrific hematoma at UFC 248.
The Polish fighter suffered a painful defeat to Weili Zhang earlier this month as she came up short in her bid to become the UFC women's strawweight champion.
And the 32-year-old has revealed the true extent of her head injury and spoke candidly about the wear and tear fighters experience on their bodies.
"There's always a [bad] side to your job or your [profession]. I hate it, man, I hate it and I want to take care of my health. Being an athlete, being in this sport, it changes your body; it changes your head, your mind; how you look and how you walk," she said on MMA Fighting's Eurobash podcast.
"It cost me a lot of sacrifices, changes in my body and I'm still a woman, I want to be attractive. And I want to be a mother in the future so I always want to take care of my health. In the UFC you have everything - good healthcare and they're always taking good care of us."

Jedrzejczyk showed off her remarkable facial transformation on social media, and admits to laughing about the memes following her epic clash.
"There are still a few bruises, but I was laughing about the memes after my fight. Even though I cut myself off from social media I was still laughing, but I'm telling you guys from the next day, the swelling in my forehead went down and I couldn't see out my left eye for two days," she added. "I had a vision of only five percent in my left eye - it was pretty rough. It is what it is, the swelling went down."
