George Lucas’s daughter is a female MMA fighter?

K. Thor Jensen Contributing Writer, Entertainment

And they’re making a documentary about her? Forget Star Wars, this is REAL news! If your dad was the creator of one of the best-loved film series of all time, you’d think that you’d just go right into the family business, right? Not Amanda Lucas. She eschewed her dad’s love of science fiction and the pleasures of the mind to focus on the pain of the body, diving deep into the study of jiu-jitsu and eventually becoming a professional mixed martial arts fighter with the nickname “Powerhouse.” This new documentary directed by Bobby Razak explores her motivations and her career, with footage of her fights in Japan and her famous father giving his thoughts.
