Julie Kedzie was on the verge of pulling the upset against one of the most popular fighters in women’s mixed martial arts today. Then Miesha Tate grabbed an arm. The Jackson’s MMA product held on for as long as she could but was ultimately forced to tap to Tate’s armbar at 3:28 of the bout’s third round. For her efforts, Kedzie could be out for as long as six months with a potential left rotator cuff injury.

Julie's striking has improved leaps and bounds after going to Jacksons'. Hopefully she returns soon. That was such a great fight from both competitors.

Shit. Rotator cuff? I remember watching the reply and noticing Julie couldn't use a "running" escape, because Miesha prevented that by having her hips welded to her shoulder. Julie tried and that's what must have torn (possibly) the rotator cuff. Damn. Julie was looking AWESOME to....in both ways. ;)
