The Force Is With Her

| Filed under: Zportz

Who knew that the 27 year-old daughter of Star Wars creator George Lucas could fight?

Amanda Lucas (above), who has been featured in three of daddy's Star Wars films, debuted her mixed martial art skills last night at the Princesses of Pain event at the Auckland Boxing Association Stadium in Auckland, New Zealand.

Bring the pain!!!!!

Amanda fought against Kiwi kickboxer Nicole Kavanagh while the event was being filmed.

The footage will end up on a new reality TV show featuring a women's international fight league.

Fun. Fun. Fun.

Is hair-pulling allowed???

And in case you didn't know, Amanda used to be a hip-hop teacher in San Francisco.

She had also received years of training in Brazilian ju-jitsu, Muay Thai and kickboxing.

Belinda Dunne, the promoter for Princesses of Pain, mentioned how down to Earth Amanda really is.

She says Amanda's "staying in a hostel with six other girls. Eating the same food. She has not once been a prima donna about it. Within her team-mates, none of them really give a crap (about her links to fame). Amanda is an amazing person within herself. Being in New Zealand has been good for her. She's been here since Sunday and no one's taken any notice. It's great for her first fight. It's been about her and not about who she is."

As for her nickname, Amanda "Powerhouse" Lucas, Dunne says that comes about because "She's got a lot of strength in her punch."

Dunne adds that Amanda's "got the heart of a fighter. She's got some skills in every area. She does the tough yards and she doesn't give up."

Can they fight in bikinis???

That'd be way hotter!

    Who wants to see THAT in a bikini? Actually, it might be fun for 15 minutes….



  36. 36

    apparently you didn't read the article that TMZ had accompanying this picture.. she got her ass kicked big time (they say she was "mismatched" with someone better than her)

  37. Leia says – reply to this


    37

    Wow, hands down Perez. You really fought the corner for the emancipation of women. 'In a bikini?' Are you for real? You sound like a closeted homosexual from the 1950's, not an enlightened gay man from the 00's. I've seriously lost respect for you.

  38. mrsjon says – reply to this

    This is so cool, so refreshing to see a woman doing something instead of just trying to just look like something.

  39. Perez says – reply to this

    "Can they fight in bikinis???

    That'd be way hotter!"

    Kind of odd for a gay man to be so sexist. Shouldn't you have some kind of insight when it comes to gender?
    With all the power that you have with this giant audience, it'd be nice if you didn't reduce half of humanity to being worthy only insofar as they are "hot."

    Just so you know: there's no hair-pulling allowed in MMA. There's also no eye-gouging, groin punches, or finger-breaking. There is, however, a totally AWSOME sport to watch. I mean, who doesn't love to watch sweaty men (and women) roll around on the ground, jockeying for position.

    Damn, that's brutal. What's the appeal of pugalism? Doesn't matter whether it is men or women, why are people beating each other up? I'm sure Daddy George is thrilled with his kid's new career. :-O

    Your comments are ridiculous. WHO the fuck are you?! Youseem like a white straight studpi jock making derogative comments about women, would you say the same about male fighters? Ridiculous. I officially hate you.

    Sorry but that's more manly behavior. Not attractive at all and surely not female in my opinion.

    That'd be way hotter!

    Is it really necessary that everything about women (how they dress, behave, carry themselves, etc.) be somehow sexually appealing? You are a sexist pig, Perez.

    I'll bet she's lesbo and she didn't just come out of the closet - she kicked the freaking door down screaming "I'm here and queer and I am a big bad Bull Dyke".

    Why does someone with such power in the media decide to be so hateful and sexist with his power? Use what you have to do some positive things in the world, Perez, and why not strive to be hate free? Increasingly disgusted . . . it's over. I will convince my friends to do the same.

  65. MarieE says – reply to this


    65

    Wow, Perez. Can't you at least try and be a little bit more sexist?

    Right on, nomore.

    she lost the fight, by the way…. NOT LIKE ALL YOU SEXIST PIECES OF SHIT CARE OR ANYTHING. looks don't fucking matter in fighting unless your name is gina carano. then people bend over backwards for you and change the rules of the game for you. just let the girls do what they want to do. MMA is fun and it's a fantastic workout. i urge any female to go to a brazilian jiujitsu, muay thai, or MMA gym. first day of training is ALWAYS free. just try it, i swear you'll love rolling around with hot, sweaty guys :)

    if you want to watch some GREAT female mma fighters, look up tara larosa, shayna baszler, and megumi fuji. gina is a good fighter but she is not very professional since she consistently can't make weight.

    ps. kimbo fucking sucks

  71. Medusa says – reply to this

    Perez, not everything female has to be oversexed. Sure, you may think we look hotter in bikinis(i'm not even sure about that one, because you're always knocking celebs for looking like shit in their bikinis), but if we're fighting, do you really think we're doing it to look hot? Sure, male boxers and wrestlers may be concerned about how they look, but they're male, having muscles is "hot". If fighting females wanted people to think they're hot, they'd go become models, strippers or something "sexy".

    Oh, but good job on reporting on something interesting.

    Why do women have to compete like men today? What happened to soft women who like to wear makeup and dress up in nice clothes? This is disgusting.

    This was on our (NZ) 6 o'clock news. She got wasted. But she was up against someone better than her so the ref stopped the fight.
    And for all those people who are commenting on how terrible she looks, i cant imagine its very easy to look gorg when you are getting the shit kicked out of you, im not sure she was expecting this to be judged for most beautiful or fashionable.

    seriously perez — i'm disgusted when straight men say shit like this about women's sports. Why do you want them to fight in bikini's? Trying to appeal to a different market now or something? jesus perez. why can't people take women seriously when they break into something previously dominated by men instead of bringing it down to the level of sex and entertainment?
