Mixed martial arts fighters Mateusz Makarowski and Krystian Blezien were badly disfigured after a shocking fight on Saturday night.
The Polish duo squared off in what turned out to be a memorable bout at MMA Attack 4 which took place at Będzin Arena and featured former UFC fighter Oli Thompson in the main slot.
It quickly became clear that Makarowski and Blezien were serious, as they exchanged heavy blows that left them both in a bloody mess.
Things only got worse as the fight progressed and it was a miracle they were still on their feet after 15 minutes of taking turns punching Poland.
Makarowski picked up a unanimous decision victory to improve his professional MMA record to 8-5. However, one look in the mirror and he surely began to wonder if winning was worth it.
The 25-year-old was expected to have two cuts just below his eyebrows stitched up after the fight. Makarowski also couldn’t see after the fight because his face was so swollen it impaired his vision.
Blezien had it even worse after falling to 4-4 as a professional MMA fighter.
The lightweight prospect also couldn’t see after the fight due to the significant swelling around his eyes. He also had to deal with a number of deep cuts, including a horrific gash on his left eyebrow.

On top of all that, Blezien’s lips also swelled up, meaning he was not only unrecognizable but also unable to communicate properly during his recovery process.
Although only one of them was able to win, both men walked out of the fight with a ton of credit after showing their granite chins in one of the most gruesome fights of 2022.
After what we suspect will be a long layoff for Makarowski and Blezien while they heal, it seems inevitable that they will be invited back to MMA Attack or perhaps they will be called up to one of the greatest. shows after impressing during their viral fight.
