How could a 4 inch cuttlefish eat an 8 inch CBB?

they are superior predators. what do you think will happen? the butterfly will fight him off?
here is an interesting vid to give you an idea of what you are considering keeping...

But that octopus is almost as big as the shark! Plus the tentacles are bigger in comparison to the body! I can't picture the cuttlefish grabbing the CBB with it's chameleon tongue thingy either

Can they get out as well as octopi or do they stay in the tank fairly well?
