What can fans expect from you in the remainder of 2009?

Julie: I have recently signed on to the UWC reality show and I hope that it is a fruitful contract. In my career, I have come to understand that hard training must be mixed with a bit of marketing, and I am attempting to understand that part of the process, although I am a little out of my element! However, you HAVE to step outside of your comfort zone to grow, and I hope that this is one more step in my evolution as a fighter and a human being. What are three things that you want fans to know about Julie Kedzie?

Julie: I want them to know that I am sincere in my quest to be the best; that if they can learn anything from my story, it’s that it IS possible to follow your dreams – if, to quote a great man, you SIMPLY BELIEVE. That, and know that I am truly sorry that I can’t return all of my e-mail and MySpace messages. What would you most like to be remembered for at the end of your career?

Julie: I would like to be remembered for working hard and, oddly enough, endeavouring to express gratitude. A huge lesson that I’ve learned in my (still very short) career is that you cannot take things for granted. Do you have any final comments or shout-outs to sponsors or friends?

Julie: I will always say thank you to my good friends at TapouT, and of course my team, coaches and friends at Jackson’s. Thank you again for your time for this interview, and we look forward to seeing more of your exciting fights in the future.

Julie: Thank you! would like to thank Julie for her time for this lengthy and entertaining interview, and we wish her nothing but the best in her quest to dethrone “The Last Emperor” Fedor Emelianenko!
