‘So many bruises’ - Joanna Jedrzejczyk shows discolored face, chest recovering from UFC 248

Joanna Jedrzejczyk says the swelling has gone down, but there’s still heavy bruising on her face and chest.

Joanna Jedrzejczyk sustained a pretty huge and nasty hematoma in her forehead after her 25-minute war with Weili Zhang at UFC 248. The former champion was recently seen with heavy discoloration on her face, and she has since given an update on her recovery a week after that instant classic of a title bout.

She seems to be in high spirits after getting back home, and states that while the swelling has gone down, the heavy bruising remains.

“Hello, guys. I made it home. I’m in Poland,” the former champion said on a video posted on Instagram. “I’m happy to be back home. I took a long shower, and unpacked some stuff.

“I’m having a small home spa. It’s a mud mask,” Joanna joked as she showed the discoloration of. “Of course I’m still having so many bruises on my face, on my chest. The swelling went down. I feel better, so we good! We good!”

Zhang managed to retain her strawweight belt after winning a close decision, and while it’s still too early, Jedrzejczyk has already mentioned being open to a rematch. If you missed the contest, you can watch highlights of the instant classic (and how that nasty hematoma grew) in super-slow motion.
