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. Previously, Cormier had been connected to a fight against Rafael Feijao, but the UFC has apparently thought twice about that matchup and will do Cormier/Hendo instead. Although the report was said to be untrue 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 saying goes,“Where there is smoke there’s fire.“ I really do think this matchup involving Cormier and Henderson happens because it’s the fight that makes most sense from the 205lb branch at the moment. There are a lot of people out there discussing how awful Henderson looked in the first two rounds of his struggle with Shogun Rua in UFC Fight Night 38 a few weeks past, and he certainly did not look like the Hendo of older for the first ten minutes. However, what people forget is that the struggle was scheduled for 25 minutes, and Henderson got the job finished in the 16th minute of the fight. So I feel like lovers and press have been far overly critical of Henderson believing that, you knowthat he won the fight with Shogun. As 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 of his fights, including his three at the UFC against Roy Nelson, Frank Mir, and Pat Cummins. But 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 folks are saying. That said, obviously Henderson would enter the struggle with Cormier has a large favorite, if it indeed goes down. My guess is that DC opens about -400 for the struggle, one that is very likely to function as co-main event of UFC 175 when that event happens. I think that is a fair spot for DC, but I would not surprised at all if the gambling public bets him up to some crazy number, possibly. 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 remarkable fashion, he’ll have really earned his title shot against Jon Jones.
