Julie Kedzie is a third-degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do and a retired MMA fighter. Back in 2007 Juli was in St. Petersburg, Russia to fight in the BodogFight: Clash of the Nations, a fight she miraculously won after breaking her nose in the first round.
She won that fight by submission, which, is grossly relevant in the context of this story. Appearing on Joe Rogan’s radio show last week, Julie Kedzie talked about how she actually shit herself during that fight but didn’t find out until later. She pooped herself mid-fight but after the match was over she was immediately shuttled onto a bus with the other match winners and off to meet Vladimir Putin, while still sweaty and wearing her fight clothes.
Initially, Julie thought she’d stepped in vomit but it wasn’t vomit at all, it was a big ol’ dookie in her pants. And she discovered it while meeting Vladimir Putin, and then made a quick attempt to dispose of her shit filled underwear before someone figured her out.
“I’m standing there in fight clothes,” she said.
“I’m like, ‘What is that smell?’ I had seen a guy puking backstage because of a headshot and I thought I must have rolled in it or stepped in it. I smelled so bad.
“And Jean-Claude Van Damme randomly walks up to us. Fedor [Emelianenko] was there, Jean-Claude Van Damme, this and that. It was just weird and surreal and I already had head trauma going on so wasn’t really in my right mind.
“It was so weird to be smelling myself and be like, ‘Oh God, I stepped in puke. I’m sorry, Mr. Van Damme, that I smell so bad.’
“It was bad. I remember being on the bus and looking around asking, ‘Does anyone have any perfume or anything?’ Other people were allowed to shower but I was the swingbat, so I was right after Fedor. They just put me on the bus and didn’t tell me where I was going.”
It was in the bathroom that she made the unfortunate discovery.
“I end up going to the restroom and there’s just s–t caked all over,” she said.
“And I’m like, ‘How did I s–t myself?’ It must have been in between rounds. It was disgusting. via
Seriously, god bless this woman for actually having the stones to share this story. I’m fairly certain that if I was in her situation I’d have publicly taken that story to the grave. Only my closest of friends would ever be told about the time I had to toss out shit-caked underwear before meeting Vladimir Putin. Furthermore, God Bless Joe Rogan for being able to get this story out of her on air. That’s an accomplishment in and of itself.
