George Lucas' Daughter Withdraws From Cage Fight
Amanda Lucas was set to return to MMA fighting Saturday after taking time off for her wedding.
Amanda Lucas, daughter of Star Wars creator George Lucas, has withdrawn from a cage fight after her opponent failed to make the contracted weight.
She was scheduled to return to professional MMA competition Saturday after taking a two-year hiatus to get married. She withdrew from the bout after finding out her opponent, Heather Martin, would come into the match weighing 8 pounds more than the set limit of 165 pounds.
"This is a professional sport, one I take seriously, and in which I dedicate my life to," Amanda Lucas told MMAFighting.com Friday. "To fight someone in her condition or to fight someone way beyond the contracted weight is bad for both myself, and women's MMA."
The professional martial arts fighter is George Lucas' eldest adopted daughter. She has made cameos in all three of her father's Star Wars prequel films.
