MMA Quick Quote: 'King Mo' isn't interested in war with 'Feijao' -- just a quick finish

Mo-belt_medium

"Feijao likes to bang so this is going to be an exciting fight. I'm going to show you all some new things I've been working on. The approach doesn't change. Going into every fight, I feel like both a champion and a challenger because I challenge myself in training, but I'm always champion in my mind. So nothing is going to change for this fight. I'll let KJ (Noons) fight a war. I don't want to fight a war. I'm going to look to finish (Feijao) as fast as I can. I don't ever want to fight a war. I always want to dominate and fight as one-sided a fight as possible."

Leading the pack at today's Strikeforce press conference was Light Heavyweight Champion Muhammed Lawal, who doesn't plan on putting on "Fight of the Night" when he goes toe-to-toe with Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante on Aug. 21 in Houston. "King Mo" will make his first title defense as the event headliner and looks to further distance himself from the pack with a quick finish at the Toyota Center. But will he be the finisher against the Brazilian's heavy hands -- or the finished?
