Back when Drew McFedries beat Jordan Radev at Ultimate Fight Night 10, he said “No one understands the struggles and hardships I’ve gone through to get here!” We laughed it off on the low blow, because God knows that half the fighters in the UFC were abused, beaten, homeless, jailed, nearly murdered, and on and on and on. MMA is full of sad stories and personal struggle. What problems could Drew McFedries have to compare? The inability to make car payments?
Well it looks like we underestimated the issues in Drew’s personal life, because here’s just a glimpse and it’s fucking scary:
Agnes McFedries-Kennedy, 51, was found Saturday evening lying in the alley in the 1800 block between West 7th and West 8th streets. A couple returning to a residence near the scene discovered the body.
Police are interviewing “people of interest” in the case, said Capt. David Struckman. A significant portion of the criminal investigation division is working case, he added.
McFedries-Kennedy was the daughter of Quad-City auctioneer Scotty McFedries and mother of UFC fighter Andrew McFedries.
She had a lengthy criminal history, which included theft, prostitution, harassing a public official and driving while barred.
