Earlier this month, Weili Zhang and Joanna Jedrzejczyk put on the most exciting women’s MMA fight in the history of the UFC. Zhang was defending her UFC strawweight title for the first time in the co-main event of UFC 248.

In this fight, Weili Zhang defeated Joanna Jedrzejczyk via SD (48-47, 47-48, 48-47).

The fight was an extremely close one with many even thinking that Joanna won the fight. After the fight was over, Joanna developed a huge hematoma on her forehead. The injuries were pretty bad and she had to be transported to the hospital for checkups.

However, Joanna has revealed that her injuries are almost healed and also said that having such injuries visible on her face was extremely difficult.

Honestly, I know I’m in a man’s sport, but I don’t think there is a sport for a girl or a sport for a guy – the world is free, (and) it’s the 21st century. I’m a very clean person, (and) my aesthetic, I like to keep it clean,” Jedrzejczyk said on MMA Fighting’s Eurobash podcast. “My clothing…I take showers about four or five times a day! I’m very girly, so I hate myself when I’m like this, but that’s the price we have to pay.”

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. 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.”

However, despite everything that went down, she assured her fans on the podcast that she is completely fine now.

I had an X-ray, I had an ultrasound, I had everything,” she said. “I went to the plastic surgeon in Poland and I small medical procedure on my ear. Everything is good with my head. I’m good!” (H/T – MMA Fighting)
