Nicknamed “Powerhouse,” Amanda Lucas has been pummeling the competition in the Japanese mixed martial arts league known as DEEP. A year ago, she was crowned champion after beating Yumiko Hotta in the third round.
Her story has become a documentary in the hands of Bobby Razak, who besides being a movie director is also a martial arts buff. The film is set for release later this year.
Lucas has had cameo appearances in a few of her father’s movies, but she’s reportedly come into her own as a fighter. At 31 years of age, she has a 5-1 record, with the only loss being her first official match.
She is the daughter of George and ex-wife Marcia Lucas, adopted during their marriage. She had bit parts in all three of the “Star Wars” prequels.
Lucas was knocked out in the third round of her 2008 pro MMA debut but rebounded the following year with a unanimous decision victory to even her record. She earned the title last February.
