With so many deserving fighters flying under the radar these days, that this particular match up got any attention at all may be a crime, but who are we if not willing accomplices? Amanda Lucas, adopted daughter of Star Wars & Indiana Jones creator George Lucas, was set to climb into the cage for the third time tonight at Freestyle Cage Fighting 46. Lucas had spent the past year away from competition sharpening up her skills; unfortunately, her opponent was a little less diligent in her preparation.

Female fighters need to start taking their own sport more seriously if they want everyone else to take it more seriously. Yes, of course men miss weight sometimes too, but proportionally it seems to be way way more prevalent in women's MMA. How many times did Gina Carano, "the face of women's MMA" miss weight?

Missing by 13 pounds is just a joke. That tells me this person either didn't even make any effort to cut weight and opted to take a fine for a massive advantage in the ring assuming the opponent would take the fight, or has absolutely no clue how to cut weight, and no one to show her how. If either case is true, she shouldn't be fighting professionally, IMO.
