A matchup between two of the top-10 light heavyweights in the world is rumored to occur at UFC 175. According to a report from, Daniel Cormier is likely to face legend Dan Henderson in UFC 175 this July in Las Vegas. Previously, Cormier was connected to a fight against Rafael Feijao, but the UFC has apparently thought twice about that matchup and will do Cormier/Hendo instead. Even though the report was said to be false by UFC president Dana White through Twitter, all of us know that White enjoys to maintain these kind of items in house till they are 100% official, and of course as the old saying goes,“Where there’s smoke there is fire.“ I really do think this matchup involving Cormier and Henderson occurs because it is the fight that makes most sense from the 205lb branch at the moment. There are a good deal of individuals out there talking about how bad Henderson looked in the first two rounds of his fight with Shogun Rua in UFC Fight Night 38 a couple weeks ago, and he absolutely didn’t seem as the Hendo of older for the first 10 minutes. But what people forget is that the struggle was scheduled for 25 minutes, and Henderson got the job finished in the 16th minute of the struggle. I feel like lovers and press have been far too critical of Henderson believing that, you know, he won the fight with Shogun. So far as Cormier goes, he has been unbeaten in his mixed martial arts profession and basically untested for the most part as he has been pretty much flawless in all his fights, including his three in the UFC against Roy Nelson, Frank Mir, and Pat Cummins. However, I genuinely believe Henderson is a more dangerous fighter compared to all three of these men, and this struggle between DC and Hendo isn’t a walk in the park for DC, despite what some people are saying. That said, obviously Henderson would enter the fight Cormier has a large favorite, if it indeed goes down. My guess is that DC opens about -400 for the fight, one which is likely to function as co-main event of UFC 175 when that event happens. I think that’s a fair spot for DC, but that I wouldn’t surprised at all when the betting public bets him up to some crazy number, either. Hopefully we get confirmation of this bout soon, because I think Hendo is the ideal test for DC and if Cormier can complete him in impressive fashion, he will have truly got his title taken against Jon Jones.
