UFC featherweight Brian Ortega is confident that he could smash the 'Iranian Hulk' in a fight despite the enormous weight difference.
The six-foot-two 390lbs beast, whose real name is Sajad Gharibi, has become a viral sensation for his freakishly large physique.
He's set to enter the combat world after signing a deal with Bare Knuckle Fighting Championships, and Ortega believes he'd destroy the former body builder in a UFC clash.
"I would just gas him out, p**s him off," the five-foot-nine 145lbs fighter told TMZ. "Of course, you're gonna see me just get mauled up like a damn little chihuahua in the beginning.
"But just when I ride that wave out, it's a done deal man. He'll gas out and he'll be mine."
Ortega was unbeaten in 15 bouts before facing UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway. He lost to the Hawaiian in an epic war back at UFC 231.
He hasn't fought since his defeat last December, but he'll return to the Octagon next month at UFC Busan when he takes on 'The Korean Zombie' Chan Sung Jung.
Gharibi, on the other hand, is slated to debut early next year at an event billed as 'USA vs. Iran: World War 3'.
