UFC superstar Joanna Jedrzejczyk says she's feeling "good" and recovering well after that 5-round WAR with Weili Zhang -- and tells TMZ Sports she's down for the rematch!
"I feel good, calm, quiet [and] surrounded by good people," Joanna says ... "People who love me so much, my family."
Of course, Joanna was hospitalized after her March 7th fight with Weili -- and even though she lost in a controversial split decision, JJ is in great spirits about her health and fighting future.
Joanna says that massive hematoma on her forehead is gone down in size -- and is also gravitating down her face.

Her face is still bruised, but Joanna says her team of top-flight doctors say she has no serious long-term injuries.
Joanna says she has surgery scheduled for next week to take care of some minor problems -- but nothing substantial.
"I had an ultrasound on my organs, X-ray. Everything is fine. I'm healthy."
Joanna also credits Dana White and the UFC for getting her set up with the best doctors available.
As for a rematch with Weili, Joanna says she always wants to fight the best -- and if Weili is still at the top of the rankings when she's healed up, she's all the way down to run it back!
