“I want to take it with calm,” Mazo told MMA Junkie Radio. “I just want to fight, give my best in every fight, be ready for every challenge I have. Whoever my next challenge is, it’s going to be good, because I know I’m going to be prepared. I’m not looking to just go for a belt, for example. Just step by step. I fight because I really love it. It’s not like I have to do it. So I’m going to enjoy every step of this career. I don’t care if I take a long time to be at the top of the world, but I know I will. I don’t have any rush at all.”

The video of Mazo’s head kick knockout has gotten over one miller views on Youtube. For Mazo, the best part of the highlight reel knockout is that her family and friends were watching the fight.

“A lot of my family and my friends were watching the fight,” Mazo said. “And it also went viral over there. A lot of people knew I was fighting, but they never knew like that level. It’s been growing. I see more and more people are interested in the sport. A lot of gyms, it’s really growing. There’s a lot of talent over there, too.”

Other than the highlight reel victory over Thorton, the undefeated Mazon also defeated Reina Cordoba and Alejandra Lara.
