Darth Vader and a gang of Stormtroopers accompanied Amanda Lucas at DEEP 57

A couple years ago, Ecko made Star Wars themed hoodies and cut a video that featured Marc Laimon and Robert Drysdale fighting with plastic toy light sabers. It proved that you can be one of the greatest BJJ coaches and still be an incredibly geeky Star Wars fanboy. Granted, if any of us had two operational light sabers lying around, it would be virtually impossible not to stage your very own Jedi altercation. It would also be equally impossible to not emit your own sound effects when you swing around your plastic rod of imaginary energy. Unfortunately, physicists have agreed that light saber technology would be impossible to develop. Sorry to break the news to all of you members of the Temple of the Jedi Order (yes, it’s an actual religion). Over the weekend we told you Amanda Lucas would be competing at DEEP 57 for the DEEP women’s open-weight championship against Yumiko Hotta. Well, she managed to finish her opponent in the third round via keylock. After the bout, the inevitable happened — Darth Vader and his crew of Stormtroopers invaded Amanda Lucas’ personal space. Props to Sports Illustrated and Sherdog for the pictures and massive congratulations to Amanda Lucas on her first championship belt.
