"It's one of the best fights I've ever seen, period. Right when the fight got over, I heard that they threw 800 punches, 400 each, in that ballpark," he explained.

"From what I saw, those guys were matching each other punch for punch. Every time someone would punch or kick, the other one would punch or kick.
"Both of them threw around 400 punches. It was an incredible fight."
The victory moves Zhang to 21-1 which includes five big UFC wins, while Jedrzejczyk (16-4) suffers her fourth UFC defeat.
The former UFC champion also suffered a brutal hematoma and she spoke about her head injury following the contest.
"You see my [swelling], I felt this, you know, she did great," she said. "There was something missing, but I felt all the punches, from the third round the [swelling] was bothering me and I felt it just getting more and more swollen, and my head was, like, going on and off.
"But all good. Congrats, champ, and I'm very happy that we gave you a good fight."
