Joanna Jedrzejczyk was left with a badly disfigured face after a brutal war against Weili Zhang in their strawweight title bout at UFC 248. Both fighters were taken to hospital after the slug-fest, but despite absorbing a great deal of punishment, Jedrzejczyk would not allow her injuries or pride prevent her from congratulating her opponent on the win. Zhang (now 21-1) traded brutal punches and kicks with Jedrzejczyk (now 16-4) throughout a frenetic five rounds to thrill the crowd, in stark contrast to the dull main event as Israel Adesanya defended his middleweight title over Yoel Romero.
