Marcus "The Wrecking Ball" Hicks takes on World Extreme Cagefighting lightweight titleholder Jamie "The Worm" Varner Aug. 3 at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, where the undefeated Hicks expects to walk away the champion.

Heading into the biggest fight of his career, Hicks' attitude is, "It's just another fight."

"I'm approaching this fight pretty much the same way I approach all my fights. I'm going to go out there and do what I do," the Texan told MMAWeekly Radio.

"I want to go out there, and I want to have a strong paced fight. I want to go out there and try to take the title," he added. "I don't want to sit back and wait for it to come to me."

In his ten-fight professional mixed martial arts career, Hicks has never gone to a decision. "I'd like to keep it that way," remarked the challenger. "I don't want a decision."

This fight is going to be awesome. Two very well rounded guys. I think Varner will defend his belt.

Only way Varner is going to run into any real trouble is if he tries to shoot a double leg and doesn't watch for that Guillotine. Hicks has good boxing, but with reach and boxing credentials of his own I don't really see Varner getting caught by those looping overhands

Varner is still young and he looked very impressive against Razor Rob. I think with about 1-2 more defenses he should jump back to the UFC because I think he might be able to contend.

I don't think it'll happen, look at how bad Sergio Gomez hurt Marcus in their Fight, just think that Jamie ran through Razor Rob, who's Stand Up is all around better than Marcus's

He should change his name to "the guillotine"
