Brock Lesnar shocked the world at the weekend when it was revealed that he was making a return to the UFC.

The former Heavyweight Champion of both UFC and WWE will be making a return to the octagon at UFC 200 in a one-off fight that is serving as a way for Dana White and co. to draw more money, with the WWE benefitting through increased exposure for SummerSlam - their second biggest pay-per-view of the year.

Well, while speaking on ESPN yesterday, fellow WWE superstar Dean Ambrose wasn't exactly supportive of his peer - predicting the man that Lesnar is facing to take the win on July 9 in Las Vegas.

Ambrose appeared on ESPN SportCenter's 'Off The Top Rope' with former WWE employee Jonathan Coachman where he tipped Mark Hunt to beat 'The Beast Incarnate'.

Ambrose is very good friends with one powerful Samoan, Roman Reigns, and fancies the other Pacific Islander - Hunt - to come out on top.

"The thing about this fight is he's fighting Mark Hunt, the 'Super Samoan'", he said, via Cageside Seats.

"And if you get clipped by Mark Hunt? Even once, even a little bit - you're going down. I don't care how big you are."

"I mean, Mark Hunt is blessed with far more punching power than I am, so Brock Lesnar better just watch out for that right hand, that left hook, you know what I'm saying?"

As of right now, a lot of the top bookmakers are agreeing with Dean Ambrose here - as the New Zealander remains the favourite to leave UFC 200 as the victor. 

During his original stint in the UFC, Lesnar became the Heavyweight Champion before a bout of diverticulitis seriously harmed him and slowed him down inside the octagon.

Lesnar left the UFC with a 4-3 record, with his last fight coming in a loss to Alistair Overeem at UFC 141 in December 2011. 

We'll have to wait and see how Lesnar does at UFC 200. Give us your predictions in the comments below.
