Joanna Jedrzejczyk Releases Video Showing Her 'Many Bruises' After Horrific Injury Vs Zhang Weili

Joanna Jedrzejczyk Releases Video Showing Her 'Many Bruises' After Horrific Injury Vs Zhang Weili

Joanna Jedrzejczyk has released a video updating fans on her condition following her horrific hematoma against Zhang Weili at UFC 248 last weekend.

The Polish fighter suffered the injury during her loss to the strawweight champion last weekend and it caused enormous swelling to her face.

Images had surfaced earlier this week showing her facial injuries and she's now taken to Instagram and updated fans on her condition.

"I still have so many bruises on my face and my chest.

"The swelling has gone down and I'm feeling better so it's all good."

Her war with Weili was met with critical acclaim with many fans calling it one of the UFC's greatest ever contests.

It was also rewarded 'Fight of the Night' ahead of the main event between Israel Adesanya and Yoel Romero.

The injury occurred in the third round when Weili unloaded a string of powerful shots that caused Jedrzejczyk's forehead to swell up.

She still managed to give a post-fight interview in which she said:

"You see my swellness, I felt this. She [Weili] did great. There was something missing, but I felt all the punches you know," she said.

"From the third round, the swellness was bothering me and I felt it was just getting more and more swollen and my head was like going on and off.

"But all good. Congrats, Zhang, and I'm very happy we gave you a good fight."

Both fighters were rushed to hospital following the war inside the T-Mobile Arena and Weili discussed the aftermath of the war.

"After the match, Joanna and I, we both met at the hospital. We arrived at the hospital almost at the same time. There was just a curtain between us," the 30-year-old said per the South China Morning Post.

"She kept crying for hours. I felt very sad. I especially wanted to comfort her. But the language barrier, I can only tell her, 'Good job! You did very well. You are very good'.

"Then she kept crying, covering her head. And I feel very sad, to be honest. Although she was disrespectful to me before. But I saw her injury while crying. I felt bad for her."
