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:
