Joanna Jedrzejczyk suffered massive swelling to her forehead at UFC 248, where the former strawweight champ dropped a gruelling split decision loss to reigning champion Weili Zhang in the UFC 248 co-main event at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena.
We’re almost one week on from the bout and, although the swelling to Jedrzejczyk’s head appears to have subsided, the 32-year-old is still looking a little worse for wear.
Joanna has suffered serious discoloration to her face but that hasn’t stopped the Pole from socialising with friends and family in public.

Joanna is scheduled for ear surgery on Monday, per MMA Fighting’s Damon Martin.
“The swelling is going down. The UFC took really good care of me. I met with the doctor on Monday. Everything is fine. I have a small surgery on Monday in my ear in my Poland with one of the best plastic surgeons in the business. I have a cauliflower [ear] so they drained it at the E.R. right after the fight. It looks very bad. So that’s it. I’m waiting on the swelling to go down. It will probably take a few more days but it’s getting better everyday. After that, I will do some exams again just to make sure everything is OK but so far, so good.”
Joanna and Zhang were both awarded a $50,000 Fight of the Night bonus for their participation in what many fans consider to be one of the greatest title fights in UFC history at UFC 248.
