The ESC will not force any current on the motor or from the battery. Both the battery and the ESC simply make the power available. The motor draws what ever current it needs. With a bigger prop or more pitch the motor must work harder(more current) But there is a limit to how much work it can do. If you exceed that limit on the motor, or ask for more current than the ESC or battery can provide, one of the three will fail. You need a motor that can do enough work, and an ESC and battery that will give the motor as much current as it wants. It is a matched system. Even a mismatch such as a much larger ESC than you need will eat into your efficiency and draw down the battery.
