Joanna Jedrzejczyk shows off healing forehead after suffering horror hematoma in fight against Weili Zhang at UFC 248 – The Sun

JOANNA JEDRZEJCZYK has showed off her severely discoloured face for the first time since her brutal UFC defeat.

The Polish fighter, 32, looked unrecognisable after she suffered a huge hematoma during her showdown with Weili Zhang.

Jedrzejeczyk was spotted as she left the hospital, but she kept her hood up and sunglasses on to hide her battered face.

She has now shared a snap with her 1.7million Instagram followers that show the long-lasting effects of her injury.

The 32-year-old grinned as she posed for a photograph alongside her sister on the streets on Beverly Hills, California.

Fans immediately noticed the discolouration of the skin on her face – which is a common symptom following a hematoma.

A hematoma is a large bruise under the skin, when blood causes a major swelling which often needs to be drained surgically.

But she proudly showed off her war wounds from a fight which has been described as the greatest female MMA battle in history.

The Polish star's head began to swell in the third round, but she remarkably managed to battle until the final bell.

After the fight, the former UFC Women's Strawweight Champion said: "You see my swelling. She did great.

"There was something missing but I felt all the punches and the swelling was bothering me.

"My head was going on and off. Congrats, champ. I'm very happy we had a good fight."
