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 likely to face legend Dan Henderson in UFC 175 that July in Las Vegas. Previously, Cormier had been connected to a fight against Rafael Feijao, but the UFC has reportedly thought twice about that matchup and will perform Cormier/Hendo instead. Even though the report was said to be untrue by UFC president Dana White through Twitter, we all understand that White enjoys to keep these types of things in house until they are 100 percent official, and of course as the old expression goes,»Where there is smoke there is fire.» I truly do think this matchup involving Cormier and Henderson happens because it is the fight that makes most sense in the 205lb branch at the moment. There are a good deal of people out there talking about how awful Henderson looked in the initial two rounds of his fight with Shogun Rua at UFC Fight Night 38 a few weeks ago, and he absolutely didn’t look as the Hendo of old for the first ten minutes. But what people forget is that the fight was scheduled for 25 minutes, and Henderson got the job done in the 16th minute of the fight. So I feel like lovers and press 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 flawless in all his fights, including his three in the UFC against Roy Nelson, Frank Mir, and Pat Cummins. But I genuinely believe Henderson is a much more dangerous fighter than all three of those guys, and this fight between DC and Hendo is no walk in the park for DC, regardless of what some people are saying. That said, obviously Henderson would put in the struggle with Cormier has a large favorite, if it indeed goes down. My guess is that DC opens roughly -400 for the fight, one that is likely to function as co-main occasion of UFC 175 if that event occurs. I believe that’s a fair spot for DC, but I wouldn’t surprised at all when the gambling public bets him up to some crazy number, either. Hopefully we get confirmation of this bout soon, because I presume Hendo is the right test for DC and when Cormier can complete him in remarkable fashion, he will have truly got his title taken against Jon Jones.
