Demetrious Johnson believes he could beat Brock Lesnar in the Octagon. Johnson spoke to TMZ Sports and said he knows he could beat the WWE star, and explained what his strategy would be.

“Obviously size is going to be a huge factor, but his skills are nowhere near my level,” Johnson said. “I’m going to blast him in the liver, liver kicks all day. I’m going to do what Alistair Overeem did and just blast kicks, blast kicks, blast kicks. Hopefully one of those liver shots puts him down…It’s a liver shot. If you hit anybody in the right spot, or you hit them in the liver, they’re going to go down regardless. The liver ceases and just shuts the whole body down. Then I’ll jump on Brock’s back and choke him out.”

Such a fight is, obviously, not likely to happen. The weight differences aside, Lesnar is not likely to be allowed to fight again for UFC under his WWE deal. The last time that happened, Lesnar was flagged for for a failed USADA drug test, which forced WWE to acknowledge that their part-timers are not subject to the Wellness Policy.
