Latest UFC 200 odds: Brock Lesnar opens as betting underdog for return against Mark Hunt

Esther Lin for MMA Fighting

I'm not surprised, motherfuckers.

Brock Lesnar may be getting all the media love following the recent announcement that he'd be returning to the Octagon at UFC 200 on July 9, 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada, but he isn't getting it from the bookmakers.

That's because the former UFC heavyweight champion has been pegged as the betting underdog when he faces heavy-handed Mark Hunt at the monumental mid-summer pay-per-view (PPV) event in "Sin City" (more on that here)

The current line is set at -195 for Hunt and +166 for Lesnar, according to

And it's probably not to anyone's surprise, either, as Brock hasn't competed in a mixed martial arts (MMA) fight in over five years, while "Super Samoan" has been knocking heads left and right for the last six years inside the eight-walled cage.

With enough knockout power in his hands to take out an elephant, Hunt has the ability to put anyone to sleep in the blink of an eye, regardless of size. However, the ground game has proven to be somewhat of a weakness for Hunt.

That said, Lesnar's best bet would be to utilize his wrestling abilities -- no, not these -- to take the fight to the mat if he hopes to pull off the upset.
