The highly anticipated UFC 200 event is set to see the return of Brock Lesnar to the octagon and the WWE superstar has already started the pre- fight talking.

After five years away from the Octagon, Lesnar is set to return in July with a tough bout against Mark Hunt.

A bold prediction

Lesnar is set for a big match but he has never been a man not to have a lot said before he fights whether in the UFC or WWE.

He may not have Paul Heyman at his side in the UFC, but the Beast Incarnate has been discussing his upcoming match against Hunt and has made a bold prediction.

Comparing the contrasting styles of himself and Hunt, Lesnar has shown that he hasn't lost any of his knowledge of the sport.

Lesnar referred to himself as a grappler and is looking to rely upon his wrestling background, athleticism and octagon awareness to guide him to victory.

However with Hunt being a heavy hitter, Lesnar has made the prediction that:

"If Mark Hunt ends up on the ground, the fight's over. "

Claiming that this fight could literally come down to Lesnar getting Hunt on the ground is a bold claim as it may prove more difficult than Lesnar thinks.

Working after a five year hiatus, the former UFC Heavyweight Champion is aware of how difficult the task facing him will be.

"Hopefully we get the rust out in training camp and I think we are. We will. If not, the first punch from Mark will knock the rest of the rust off in the first 10 seconds and then look out."

A temporary distraction

Lesnar's venture back into the Octagon is all courtesy of temporary permission by WWE for him to do so, but it won't affect the dates he is schedule to appear on WWE TV.

Lesnar is expected to be back ahead of Summer Slam in August and there are some big names being tipped to be facing him upon his return.

Arguably the most likely name to clash with the Beast when he returns to WWE is Bray Wyatt - who has already clashed with Lesnar this year.
