Joanna Jedrzejczyk's injuries have been mocked by fellow UFC competitor Colby Covington, who said she's "washed up" after getting her face "rearranged."

Jedrzejczyk endured 25-minutes of enthralling striking action in one of the greatest MMA fights of all time at UFC 248 on March 8, losing a narrow decision to the strawweight world champion Weili Zhang.

Photos from the fight showed dramatic changes in both fighters' faces and the UFC released slo-mo footage which showed the punches that caused Jedrzejczyk to swell so much she was barely recognizable.

Even a week after the event, Jedrzejczyk posted a video of her face and it was still black and blue after getting disfigured in her brutal battle with Zhang.

"As far as Joanna Jedrzejczyk … I could give a f— less about her," Covington, a UFC welterweight contender, told Submission Radio.

"She's washed up, nobody cares about her. Look at her face. She got her face rearranged."

Covington has developed a character as a UFC troll. He regularly puts down other athletes, wears a MAGA cap, and praises the US president Donald Trump in an attempt to polarize fans.

This is not the first time Covington, an accomplished American wrestler, has been in the news.

Earlier in the week he said he wanted to put his "MAGA cape on and beat the f— out' of Tyron Woodley so he could try and salvage a UFC event this weekend.

The event has now been canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic, which has postponed the vast majority of sports leagues and organizations around the world.
