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 Very Likely to face legend Dan Henderson in UFC 175 this July in Las Vegas. Formerly, Cormier had been connected to a fight against Rafael Feijao, but the UFC has apparently thought twice about that matchup and is going to perform Cormier/Hendo instead. Even though the report was stated to be false by UFC president Dana White through Twitter, all of us know that White enjoys to keep these types of items in house till they are 100 percent official, and undoubtedly as the old saying goes,“Where there is smoke there’s fire.“ I truly do think this matchup involving Cormier and Henderson happens because it is the struggle that makes most sense in the 205lb division at the moment. There are a good deal of people out there discussing how bad Henderson looked in the first two rounds of his struggle with Shogun Rua at UFC Fight Night 38 a few weeks ago, and he absolutely didn’t seem as 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 job done in the 16th minute of the fight. So I feel like fans and media have been way overly critical of Henderson considering that, you know, he won the fight with Shogun. As far as Cormier goes, he has been unbeaten in his mixed martial arts career and essentially untested for the most part as he’s been pretty much perfect in all of his fights, including his three in the UFC against Roy Nelson, Frank Mir, and Pat Cummins. But I truly believe Henderson is a more dangerous fighter than all three of these guys, and this fight between DC and Hendo isn’t a walk in the park for DC, despite what some folks are saying. That being said, obviously Henderson would put in the fight with Cormier has a big favorite, if it indeed goes down. My guess is that DC opens about -400 for the struggle, one that is likely to function as co-main event of UFC 175 if that event occurs. I think that is a neutral spot for DC, but that I wouldn’t surprised at all if the betting public bets him up to a crazy number, either. We get confirmation of this bout soon, since I think Hendo is the right test for DC and when Cormier can complete him in impressive fashion, he’ll have truly got his title taken against Jon Jones.
