Julie Kedzie has just retired and her next career is all lined up. Invicta Fighting Championships has announced that Kedzie, who retired earlier this month from in-cage competition, will serve as the promotion's head matchmaker and will continue acting as color commentator for Invicta's live events.
Kedzie said in the press release, "I am excited about this incredible new opportunity that will allow me to remain as active and hands-on as ever in contributing to the growth of women's competition in our great sport. Shannon Knapp has done an unbelievable job at pushing the envelope and helping transform women's MMA into an aggressively expanding enterprise, a development that will undoubtedly lead to increased participation in the sport by young women athletes who want to challenge themselves in the world's fastest growing sport."
Invicta president Shannon Knapp added, "We are thrilled to expand Julie's role in the Invicta FC organization and have one of the pioneers of our sport assume the pivotal role of matchmaker under her wing. There is no one more qualified than someone like Julie, who has lived and breathed MMA for the last 10 years, to take on the responsibility of nurturing our athletes, building our roster and creating the most exciting matchups possible for our live event series."
