The daughter of Star Wars creator George Lucas has an MMA fight scheduled for August. Amanda Lucas is 1-1 in her fighting career and set to take on Hikaru Shinohara at DEEP 55 in Japan August 26th.
Lucas lost her MMA debut in 2008 but won a year later. She took two years off after getting married and tried to return earlier this year, but withdrew from her fight after her opponent couldn’t make weight.
You might think that someone who has only fought twice in her career might not be too serious about fighting, but that’s not the case. In an April interview with MMA Fighting, Lucas said of her MMA aspirations, “This is a professional sport, one I take seriously, and in which I dedicate my life to.”
You may recognize Lucas from her cameos in almost all of the Star Wars movies. The fight in Japan will be her third career professional bout.
