Veteran Women’s Bantamweight Fighter Julie Kedzie made a lot of fans with her wars in Strikeforce against Alexis Davis and Miesha Tate as well as her classic, historic fight with Gina Carano.
In our epic conversation with Julie we discussed her recent signing to the newly minted UFC Women’s Bantamweight division. But it wasn’t limited to shoptalk. Jules frankly spoke about her struggles being a female fighter in the early days, internet trolls and haters, the unfair criticism her coach Greg Jackson gets, what motivates her in MMA and in life, female fight promotion Invicta FC -where Julie is a commentator, the future of women’s MMA, general thoughts on life and MMA, and of course, the time she pooped her pants during a fight.
A great conversation with a veteran of the sport from a female perspective but certainly not limited to just fighting or being a woman. As always, we like to have conversations rather than interviews and Julie was a pleasure to chat with. Enjoy!!
