UFC star’s remarkable hematoma recovery

UFC star Joanna Jedrzejczyk has shown off her remarkable recovery after suffering a brutal hematoma in her defeat by Weili Zhang earlier this month.

The pair fought in what has since been described as one of the sport's greatest-ever bouts at UFC 248.

But it was Jedrzejczyk who came off second-worst on the night as she suffered a narrow defeat on points.

The Polish star was unrecognisable at the final bell as her forehead swelled up to over twice its normal size.

When the swelling subsided days later her face was left badly bruised all over.

But Jedrzejczyk has now taken to social media to reveal she’s just about looking her normal self again, The Sun reported.

Meanwhile, she is now involved a war of words with fellow fighter Colby Covington and wants him kicked out of American Top Team after some trash talking in the gym.

Jedrzejczyk told ESPN MMA on Instagram Live: “I don’t want to talk about Colby because he is such a liar.

“The thing is he wants this exposure, he needs this attention because he has nothing to offer to the world.

“He is a great athlete, such a hard worker, but it isn’t him. Someone is writing this for him, and I know who does it.

“I feel sorry to him that he needs to jump on me. We are such hard workers, very talented people. We are real warriors.

“He is trying to take advantage. I don’t want to comment, he is such a liar.

“I think Dan Lambert should kick him out. He is putting this place to shame.”
