I’ve met old hippies on the beach of Indonesia that have heard of Star Wars, so I can only assume that you’re fully aware that Amanda Lucas is the daughter of the creator of the sci-fi series that gave birth to the term ‘midi-chlorians.’ Aside from her first professional MMA bout in 2008, she’s been undefeated in her endeavor into mixed martial arts and even holds the bling for DEEP women’s open-weight championship that she won by beating Yumiko Hotta via keylock at DEEP: ’57 Impact’ at the Tokyo Dome City Hall. If you didn’t reside in Japan, then it was impossible to watch the event live. We’ve been huge advocates of DEEP linking up with AXS TV to air their events live, regardless of if we have to shoot Red Bull into our veins to watch it at 4:00 am.
We caught up with Amanda Lucas to see how her career in DEEP was going and her on-going beef with Erin Toughill — an issue that has garnered 0% of interest from her. Check it out below.
