Alex Reid has joked he wants to fight Guy Ritchie to win a role in one of his films.
The 34-year-old mixed martial arts champion - married to glamour model Katie Price - told the Mirror he believes the director, who has a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, would be a worthy adversary, and would love to work with him in his bid to expand his acting career.
Alex said: "He's probably pretty good, he would give me a run for my money - I would take him on in a mixed martial arts fight for sure", adding that if he won he would demand a role in his next film.
Guy, 41, trained in the martial art before making it big as a Hollywood director with such films as Sherlock Holmes and Snatch.
Alex said he admired Guy for balancing life as a celebrity and a fighter.
The cage-fighter claimed his own training had helped him overcome the pressures of his new-found fame, and he was "rolling with the punches".
