Former UFC Women’s Strawweight Champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk suffered a unanimous decision loss to UFC Women’s Strawweight Champion Zhang Weili in the co-main event of UFC 248.

A defeated Jedrzejczyk suffered multiple injuries during the fight and now the fighter admits that her soul was bleeding after the battle with Weili was finished.

“They did a small medical procedure on my ear, I had a CAT scan,” Jedrzejczyk said to the South China Morning Post. “I had an ultrasound, I had an X-ray, and honestly, after a fight like this, I felt like every touch from the doctors and nurses, everything was so painful. I didn’t want anybody to touch my body, and I felt like my heart was bleeding, like my soul was bleeding.”

Jedrzejczyk did get some minor surgery a short time after the fight and is now on the road to recovery.

There was talk at one point of Jedrzejczyk retiring from professional MMA competition, but that doesn’t appear to be the case anymore.

“If I put on a hell of a performance, a hell of a war, why retire?” she said. “If I was not training hard, if I was getting knocked out, if I was losing fights like a p****, then I could retire – but I’m a warrior."

The fighter is already calling for a rematch with Weili, but nothing has been made official at this time.
