Julie Kedzie

Julie Kedzie (born 1981) is an American female mixed martial artist.[1] She is a third degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do and specializes in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.[2]

BiographyEdit

Kedzie has a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature from Indiana University.

MMA careerEdit

Kedzie rose to prominence in mixed martial arts on November 19, 2005, when she won the one-night HOOKnSHOOT Women's Grand Prix in Evansville, Indiana.[3] She repeated this feat in 2006.

On February 10, 2007, Kedzie faced undefeated rising star Gina Carano in a featured bout at EliteXC: Destiny, which aired live on Showtime. She was defeated by Carano, but the fight received Fight of the Night honours.[4]

The Commercial Appeal, the daily newspaper for Memphis, Tennessee, called the fight, "The first women's MMA fight ever shown on cable television."[5]

Following the EliteXC fight, Kedzie defeated Kelly Kobold at a BodogFight event in Vancouver, British Columbia. It was just the second time that Kobold had been defeated in 19 fights.

Kedzie later signed a contract with the American Fight League,[6] but the promotion folded and Kedzie was released from her contract.

Along with her fighting career, Kedzie is also Greg Jackson's personal assistant at Jackson's Mixed Martial Arts.[7]
