After a month of talk and anticipation, we're now just four days away from Brock Lesnar's first fight in the UFC for five years.
As is the case for any fighter before any big pay-per-view, The Beast Incarnate is currently doing the rounds and fulfilling media obligations in order to build up the hype ahead of his bout against Mark Hunt.
And the first example of his 'Fight Week' duties, an appearance on Paul Heyman's 'Heyman Hustle' YouTube channel, should probably have his New Zealand opponent sitting a little less comfortably.

Unlike other fighters in the past, Lesnar refused to give an exact prediction of how his UFC 202 fight would go. His comments, though, do show that the part-time WWE Superstar is in ominously confident mood:
"The guys that sit in this chair and can give predictions on what they're gonna do and how they're gonna do it, to me they're just blowing smoke.
"My prediction is, in my heart and my true honest feelings, I'm just going to win. How that happens? I have no idea. I feel well prepared, I'm excited, I'm calm...before the storm, and there will be a storm.
"I've had a great camp, I feel great. I'm not sitting here trying to fake anything...I don't have to fake it. I'm coming into the Octagon very well prepared, excited...and that's dangerous. I'll see ya there."
When in the WWE, Lesnar usually leaves his talking to Heyman. Now back in the UFC arena, however, the former Heavyweight Champion is talking a good game as he prepares to enter the octagon for the first time since 2011.
Given the fact that his opponent isn't lacking any confidence either, the fight is sure to be a must-see event on a pretty stacked UFC 200 card.
There's no doubt Lesnar has the power and skill to be competitive this weekend. Whether, though, he has had enough time to readjust to what is required to get a W in UFC - or whether he can handle the punching power of Hunt - remains to be seen.
Both fighters have confidently predicted they will leave the PPV victorious. We're only a matter of days away now from discovering which of them was right to make such a claim.
