Video: Myla Hill, the daughter of former NBA star Grant Hill, gets submission win in MMA debut

Myla Hill made her amateur mixed martial arts debut on Friday night in Lakeland, Fla. at Rival Fight League: Halloween Havoc, taking on Jenna Loza. Hill didn’t waste any time getting the fight to the ground after landing a right hand, ending up in full mount.

After landing a series of punches, Hill, who is the 19-year-old daughter of former NBA star Grant Hill, was able to lock in a tight rear-naked choke to force the very quick tap in the opening round.

Check out the video of the fight below, courtesy of Orlando Magic guard Michael Carter-Williams, who shared the footage with MMA journalist Ariel Helwani:

Hill currently trains at The 6 Levels just outside of Orlando, a Gracie Jiu-Jitsu affiliate, and is a purple belt. Along with jump starting her mixed martial arts career, she is also a full-time college student, according to her team’s social media page.
