Mazo is facing a 180-day medical suspension from the Nevada Athletic Commission pending X-rays on her left leg USA Today reports.
ANALYSIS
Mazo's hype train was derailed a bit this past Saturday when she took a convincing loss as a betting favorite, and it seems the bad news is piling on. She'll have to be sidelined for a minimum of 30 days, but could be out until the fall if unable to get orthopedic clearance. Fortunately, Mazo is just 23 years old, so the time off could end up as just a blip on the radar in what's expected to be a long MMA career.

Mazo lost to Alexis Davis via unanimous decision (27-30, 27-30, 26-30) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
It was a dreadful performance from Mazo against a beatable opponent in a fight in which she entered as a considerable -215 favorite. Mazo's offensive arsenal is limited, and she doesn't possess the ability to do a ton of damage in a short amount of time, but Davis kept her pinned to the mat for the vast majority of both the first and third rounds. That was more than enough to earn the decision. It's important to remember that Mazo is still just 23 years of age, but Davis is in the twilight of her career and she pretty much dominated her. Mazo has plenty of runway given the fact she entered this one on a three-fight winning streak, but this was unquestionably a significant setback.

Mazo will take on Alexis Davis in a bantamweight fight for the UFC's Feb. 27 event, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA.nl reports.
ANALYSIS
Mazo finished off her first fight prior to the final bell in her last bout versus Justine Kish via submission. That marked her third consecutive victory after falling to Maryna Moroz in her UFC debut, and she will aim to continue on that path against a veteran fighter in Alexis Davis, who is looking to bounce back from three straight losses. Mazo sports a two-inch reach and one-inch height advantage over her opponent, so he may aim to keep things at a distance.
Digs deep for submission win

Mazo defeated Justine Kish via submission (rear-naked choke) at 3:57 of Round 3 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
It was a lousy performance from Mazo in a fight in which she entered as a -220 favorite, but she was ultimately able to emerge with the victory she came for. Mazo was out of sorts over the first ten minutes and nearly certainly down 20-18 on the judges' scorecards heading to the final frame. Midway through Round 3, Mazo was able to connect with a massive head kick before immediately taking Kish's back and choking her out. It was the first submission victory of Mazo's career. "The Colombian Queen" has now won three fights in a row since dropping her company debut back in March 2019. Mazo's future potential is almost entirely tied to the fact she is still just 23 years old.
Draws Kish in September

August 19, 2020
Mazo has agreed to take on Justine Kish in a flyweight matchup at a UFC Fight Night event scheduled for Sept. 12, Marc Raimondi of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Mazo has won back-to-back decisions over JJ ALdrich and Shana Dobson, and while she was unable to get the finish, they were still both strong fantasy nights. She recorded 108 or more significant strikes in both outings, and was credited with four takedowns and three advances in the Mazo fight. Kish hasn't grapped much in her UFC run and has a kickboxing background as well, so she'll likely oblige Mazo's presumed wish to keep this fight standing up. Mazo has a two-inch height and six-inch reach advantage, which will be a big factor in the standup game.
Barely gets by JJ Aldrich

Mazo defeated JJ Aldrich via split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28) at UFC 246 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Although the numbers were severely slanted in her favor, Mazo barely pulled out a second straight victory. Despite a massive 118-58 edge in total strikes landed, Mazo needed help from the judge's to emerge victorious. She started very slowly before beginning to pull away from Aldrich in the second half of the fight. Mazo is just 22 years old, but her ceiling is limited due to a lack of stopping power. The Colombian has now won back-to-back fights since dropping her UFC debut to Maryna Moroz last March.
