No surprise here. Chael Sonnen has appointed himself the ultimate expert on Brock Lesnar, the former UFC and WWE champion who will return to the Octagon at UFC 200.

"You don't have to exactly be an MMA expert to see how this fight goes," Sonnen said on Submission Radio. "Hunt is going to wreck him."

Sonnen said he doesn't like Lesnar's chances, even on the ground.

"I don't think a guy as short as Hunt is just going to get bum rushed and taken down," he said.

The man who nearly defeated Anderson Silva in his prime then dumped all over Lesnar's wrestling skills.

"He wasn't a really good wrestler," Sonnen said. "He was an effective wrestler."

Sonnen said that Lesnar, a former NCAA national wrestling champion, didn't win his national title because of his wrestling ability.

"In the finals he had a guy who was 220 pounds and he had to go into double overtime," Sonnen said. "There's not very many wrestlers alive, if any, who if they had a 45-pound weight advantage couldn't put that guy away in about 30 seconds."

Still, Sonnen said he is "impressed" that Lesnar agreed to fight the hard-hitting Hunt.

"Brock's never taken the easy way out," he said. "He never had an easy fight."

Sonnen also called Lesnar a "once-in-a lifetime attraction," and predicted Lesnar will never step inside the Octagon again.

"For sure this is Brock's last fight," Sonnen said.
