George Lucas’s Daughter to Defend Her Cagefighting Record

One genius auteur's daughter who's not taking after daddy: director George Lucas's daughter Amanda Lucas, who is pursuing a career as a freaking cagefighter. Lucas last fought — and won — in 2009, but took a year off so that she didn't look like a "battered wife" for her wedding, also so she could "focus on getting technically better in all areas of MMA." This Saturday she returns to the ring, taking on Muay Thai fighter Heather Martin in Shawnee, Oklahoma. Her last fight was in November 2009 — when she scored a three-round win over Christen Bedwell. What a way to get Dad's approval. [TMZ]
