In today’s episode of The Strenuous Life Podcast I talk with Julie Kedzie. Julie is a retired MMA fighter who has now works as a fight commentator, interviewer and matchmaker for Invicta Fighting Championships.
In this episode she shares her experience of meeting Vladimir Putin, unaffiliating yourself from bad people (like Vladimir Putin), the importance of role models, what drove her to start MMA and how she finally made the decision to retire.
As a special bonus you’ll learn why from this point forward I want to be referred to as Herr Reverend, Master, Saint, Professor Kesting!
“The richer your life is outside of fighting the more meaningful the fighting can become” – Julie Kedzie
