Lucas, daughter of “Star Wars” creator George Lucas, will make
her Japanese mixed martial arts debut at Deep “55
Impact” on Aug. 26, the promotion announced Friday.
Also appearing in action that evening will be former Sengoku Raiden
Championship lightweight titleholder Mizuto
Hirota (Pictured; file photo), who will make his long-awaited
return to action after spending a year and a half on shelf courtesy
lightweight champion Shinya Aoki,
who broke Hirota’s arm with the hammerlock at K-1 Dynamite in
Opponents have not yet been named for Lucas or Hirota.
With only two professional fights to her credit, Lucas has tasted
both victory and defeat in her young MMA career. Known as
“Powerhouse,” Lucas was knocked out in the third round of her 2008
pro debut but rebounded the following year with a unanimous
decision victory to even her record. Currently training at Gilbert
Skrap Pack in San Francisco, Lucas has not competed since
earning her first win in November 2009.
In addition to his arm, Hirota also had a two-fight winning streak
snapped at the hands of Aoki. Prior to his conflict with “Tobikan
Judan,” Hirota had never been finished, winning the SRC lightweight
strap at Sengoku 9. A six-year veteran of the sport, the
30-year-old holds eight of his 12 career wins by knockout.
