Mazo may have utilized her range to land some good strikes along the way, but Maverick controlled the action from the opening bell with multiple takedowns and a strong top game. After the action trickled in the second round Maverick was able to score another takedown and quickly grabbed a hold of Mazo’s back. From there, Maverick locked in the rear-naked choke and put the finishing touches on a dominant performance.
