Sometimes it’s easy to forget that famous UFC beauties like Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate have those impressively chiseled bods because they’ve trained for all-out war come fight night.

So when former Bellator fighter Anastasia Yankova posted photos following her victorious UFC debut against Veta Arteaga of her battered face along with a photo of her unscathed pre-fight mug, it went totally viral and reminded everyone of just how brutal the MMA game can be for female fighters–even successful ones.

It just goes to show these badass beauties take serious punishment to make a living, and sometimes they’re damn proud to show it off.
