·1-min read

NBA Hall of Famer Grant Hill didn't feel focused or composed Friday night. Hill's daughter, Myla, was set for her first amateur MMA fight. Both Grant and his wife, Tamia, were anxious to watch Myla step into the ring. 

They had no reason to be worried. Myla Hill won her amateur debut, defeating Jenna Loza by submission in the first round. Grant said he was "in awe" of Myla's performance.

Myla, 19, trains at The 6th Level in Orlando and has a purple belt in Gracie jiu-jitsu. 

Myla celebrated Friday's win with her dad, Orlando Magic guard Michael Carter-Williams and her trainers.
