Teenager Myla Hill, daughter of seven-time NBA All-Star Grant Hill, recently won her third fight in Brendan Allen’s All In Combat 2 event by submitting Jakeya Keglar. Jackson’s son, Raja, is also making strides as an amateur at United Fight League 2, persona and skills reminiscent of his father. Kester Abad, discovered by Up Next Fighting 8, is also becoming well-known for his knockouts like the one he landed in eight seconds over his competition.
The African Knockout Championship 1, hosted in Lagos, witnessed Richard Muzaan score an unusual up kick knockout against Matthias Okuma. And, Adrian Luna Martinetti is expected to get a chance at the Contender Series after securing a quick and stunning triangle armbar against Tagore Kallew at Fusion FC 61 in Guayaquil, Ecuador.
Overall, fighting is no joke, with evidence like the ground-and-pound portrayed by Daniel Gualajara on David Babakhanyan or the traditional strike from Kurstanbek on Nevolin in Open Fighting Championship 30. Though Meuse’s dancing may seem corny, it remains a unique entrance that adds flavor to the sport.
