Daughter of NBA legend gets BJJ Brown belt after impressive submission win

Myla Hill is a a 21-year-old prodigy who just competed in amateur mixed martial arts, extending her winning streak to 3-0.

Hailing from a lineage of sports excellence as the daughter of NBA icon Grant Hill, Myla’s exceptional skills were acknowledged with her promotion to the esteemed rank of brown belt.

Myla’s father, Grant Hill, boasts an illustrious career in professional basketball, having retired from the NBA and now serving as a co-owner of the Atlanta Hawks.

Grant Hill also shares his profound basketball knowledge as a revered analyst for CBS and Turner Sports. Recognized as one of the most exceptional collegiate basketball players of his time, Hill showcased his talents in the NBA, donning the jerseys of esteemed teams such as the Detroit Pistons, the Orlando Magic, the Phoenix Suns, and the Los Angeles Clippers, primarily as a formidable small forward.

Throughout his career, Hill earned the distinction of being a seven-time NBA All-Star, a five-time All-NBA selection, and a three-time recipient of the NBA Sportsmanship Award. In recognition of his outstanding contributions to the sport, he was duly inducted into the prestigious Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame in 2018.

This honor was bestowed upon her after executing a flawless standing guillotine submission, culminating in a resounding victory at All In Combat 2.

Her opponent, Jakey Keglar, succumbed in the very first round, leaving spectators in awe at the Castine Center in Mandeville, Louisiana.

The technique employed by Hill to secure her triumph bore a striking resemblance to the maneuver executed by former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones in his memorable bout against fellow former champion Lyoto Machida at UFC 140.

Myla Hill dedicates herself to rigorous training at the distinguished 6 Levels MMA Center, an affiliate of the renowned Gracie jiu-jitsu academy, nestled in the vibrant state of Florida.
