A matchup between two of the top-10 light heavyweights in the world is rumored to take place at UFC 175. According to a report from, Daniel Cormier is Very Likely to face legend Dan Henderson at UFC 175 that July in Las Vegas. Formerly, Cormier was connected to a struggle against Rafael Feijao, but the UFC has apparently thought twice about that matchup and will perform Cormier/Hendo instead. Even though the report was said to be false by UFC president Dana White through Twitter, all of us understand that White enjoys to maintain these kind of things in house till they are 100% official, and of course as the old expression goes,“Where there is smoke there’s fire.“ I truly do think this matchup involving Cormier and Henderson happens because it’s the fight that makes most sense in the 205lb division right now. There are a good deal of people out there talking about how bad Henderson appeared in the first two rounds of his struggle with Shogun Rua in UFC Fight Night 38 a few weeks ago, and he certainly didn’t look like the Hendo of old for the first ten minutes. However, what people forget is that the struggle was scheduled for 25 minutes, and Henderson got the work finished in the 16th minute of the fight. So I feel like fans and media have been far overly critical of Henderson considering 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 essentially untested for the most part as he’s been pretty much perfect in all his fights, including his three at the UFC against Roy Nelson, Frank Mir, and Pat Cummins. However, I truly believe Henderson is a more dangerous fighter than all three of those men, and this struggle between DC and Hendo isn’t a walk in the park for DC, despite what some people are saying. That being said, clearly Henderson would put in the struggle with Cormier has a big favorite, if it really goes down. My guess is that DC opens about -400 for the struggle, one which is likely to serve as the co-main occasion of UFC 175 if that event occurs. I believe that is a neutral place for DC, but I would not surprised at all if the gambling public bets him up to some crazy number, either. Hopefully we get confirmation of the bout soon, since I presume Hendo is the right test for DC and if Cormier can complete him in impressive fashion, he’ll have really earned his title taken against Jon Jones.
