Ashton Kutcher is such a bad ass, that he can take Conor McGregor in the Octagon.

(Pause for laughter)

No, for real. Kutcher has been training with Rigan Machado, a legendary 8th degree black belt master in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. According to Machado in an interview with TMZ, Kutcher is a natural and his "No. 1 student."

Kutcher beats McGregor, says Kutcher's coach.

Machado has so much safe in Kutcher's toughness and skills that there's no doubt that, if he were to go pro, he would be one of the top BJJ contenders in the world.

Kutcher is currently a BJJ purple belt, which is one degree away from a brown belt and two away from black belt. McGregor currently holds a brown belt.

Machado was asked who'd he bet on in a fight between the current UFC featherweight champ and Kutcher.

"I'd put all my money on Ashton Kutcher," he said.

Skills aside, Kutcher does have the size advantage. According to Machado, Kutcher is 200 pounds and roughly 6 foot 2 or 6 foot 3, compared to McGregor's 5 foot 9 and 170 pounds. Granted McGregor is 11 years younger.

Still, if the two were to go at it, there's no doubt in Machado's mind that Kutcher could take McGregor. "On the ground? Yes," Machado said. "He's the best."

Hey! Maybe if that whole Floyd Mayweather thing doesn't work out, we could get a Kutcher vs. McGregor match-up instead.

So there you have it. Ashton Kutcher: TV star, host of "Punk'd" and all-around bad ass. Oh yeah, and married to Mila Kunis, so yeah, some guys have all the luck.
