Karolina Kowalkiewicz has provided an update for worried fans following a heartbreaking post on social media this past Sunday.
At last Saturday’s UFC Auckland event, Kowalkiewicz suffered her fourth consecutive defeat, losing to Yan Xiaonan via unanimous decision.
In a video statement released on Sunday, Kowalkiewicz revealed she had suffered a broken bone under her right eye and said “for the first time in my life after a fight I cannot say I’m okay“.
The video was immediately met by a downpouring of support from fans, fellow fighters and notable MMA personalities.
The 34-year-old took to her Instagram page on Monday to provide an update following the public support.
“Sh*t happens. I still love this sport and UFC. Don’t worry I’ll be ok.” she said, along with an x-ray image of the injury.
