George Lucas’ daughter to cage fight again

SHAWNEE, Okla.

Call it the Return of the Jedi’s daughter.

 All athletes could use a reality check from time to time. Take a look at these sports stars who have appeared on reality TV shows.

 The eldest child of “Star Wars” creator George Lucas is going back to her career in cage fighting after taking a year-long break for her wedding, MMAFighting.com reported Thursday.

Amanda Lucas, who has cameos in all three “Star Wars” prequels, told the mixed martial arts fighting website she would make her return to the cage on Saturday at Freestyle Cage Fighting 46 in Shawnee, Okla.

“Although I didn’t fight in 2010 I was actively training, competing in grappling tournaments and earning my purple belt in Brazillian jiu-jitsu,” said 30-year-old Lucas who, like her siblings Katie and Jett, was adopted by the US movie maker.

“The main reasons I didn’t fight was first, I got married and I assured everyone that I wouldn’t walk down the aisle looking like a battered woman. Second, I wanted to focus on getting technically better in all areas of MMA.”

Lucas holds a 1-1 professional MMA record and last competed in November 2009, earning a three-round unanimous decision over Christen Bedwell at FCF 37.
