EX-UFC champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk was taken to hospital after a horror shin gash left her with blood pouring down her leg and requiring surgery.

The Pole did not disclose how her injury was caused but posted the extent of her deep cut on Instagram.

Jedrzejczyk, 33, posted: "So you wanna be a Fighter? #imnotamodel #imafighter.

"The good thing is that I can be back to training tomorrow morning.

"Big thanks to surgeon Bartek Maminski and @damianosmash for a quick and great hospitality on ER @kamiliwanczyk we will be back!"

Jedrzejczyk has not returned since she was beaten by Zhang Weili for the strawweight title in March 2020.

It was a five-round thriller and all-time classic which resulted in Weili winning by split-decision.

Jedrzejczyk felt she deserved the win but the real talking point came following the aftermath of her battle.

She was left with a brutal hematoma which left her almost unrecognisable.

Jedrzejczyk has since recovered and is ready to return, but has recently remained busy out of the cage.

The Muay Thai legend had a recent stint as a judge on dance reality show while also working on her autobiography as well as an upcoming documentary that will detail her career.

Jedrzejczyk told MMA Fighting: “I’m living my best life. With my personal or business problems, we all have it and I’m very happy.

"I take everything that’s happening in my life and I give a lot. I give 100 per cent every single day in everything I do but I did as much as I can.

"I’m still an athlete because I really want to do it but I set my priorities.

"I have different priorities. I don’t want to be part of this crazy rat race because I was there. I was the champ for a long time. It’s been a while.

"I lost the title to Rose Namajunas but I know my value. I gave the fight of the year, the fight of the decade and I know I’m still very good.

"I don’t waste my time. I keep on training all the time. I can’t wait to get back to American Top Team.

"I’m doing a big TV deal in Poland but can’t wait to get back to the states and start training with my team again.”
