Julie Kedzie on UFC Retirement

Julie Kedzie on UFC retirement: ‘Maybe I’ve just worked my issues out now’
By Ben Fowlkes, MMA Junkie
"She’d been thinking about the dreaded r-word – retirement – for months. She’d debated it even before her UFC debut against Germaine de Randamie in July, but she had talked herself out of it because, after all these years, she was finally getting her shot in the UFC. How could she walk away before getting a chance to step into the octagon?

"But sitting in her locker room at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre in Australia, her stomach still churning from a sudden attack of food poisoning that had set in early that morning, she finally looked at longtime coach and friend Greg Jackson and told him what, up until then, she’d barely dared to think."
