Im kind of half and half on this. Why wouldnt he want to win the belt!? Win the belt, defend it a few times than get hired by the UFC. I mean, being at the top of the division with the title will look great coming into the ufc..
I can see what your saying, but im sure Mo doesnt look at it like the top of the division. He sees it as being first runner up at being the best LHW in strikeforce. He couldnt beat the champ (not that he actually got a chance to face him) so he had to wait until he left.
