Star Wars creator George Lucas' daughter Amanda is set to do battle on a new robot wars reality show.

The professional mixed martial arts fighter will be strapped to metal 'contestant' Robo Hammer when it competes on America's Syfy channel show Robot Combat League on 12 March (13).

Her filmmaker dad will make an appearance on the televised competition as he cheers on his daughter in the Robot Combat League arena.

Wwe superstar Chris Jericho hosts the programme, which features tournament-style battles between eight-foot (2.44-metre) tall robots controlled by a human fighter and an engineer.
