Female MMA fighter Lisa Verzosa won’t soon forget her battle with Julija Stoliarenko at the recent Invicta FC: Phoenix Series 3 card – in fact, she will be reminded of it every time she looks in the mirror.

Verzosa was defeated by Stoliarenko by split decision in night’s bantamweight title main event, but the fight will be remembered as much for being among the bloodiest battles in recent MMA history as it was a back-and-forth tussle for a world title.

During the fight, Stoliarenko opened numerous cuts on her opponent’s face.

The most serious of these was a gash several inches long which stretched from her forehead down the bridge of her nose to underneath her eye, the result of a particularly impressive elbow strike in the third round.
