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 was 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 stated to be untrue by UFC president Dana White via Twitter, all of us know that White enjoys to keep these kind of items in house till they are 100 percent official, and undoubtedly as the old expression goes,”Where there is smoke there’s fire.” I really do believe this matchup involving Cormier and Henderson occurs because it’s the fight that makes most sense in the 205lb division at the moment. There are a lot of individuals out there discussing how bad Henderson appeared in the first two rounds of his struggle with Shogun Rua in UFC Fight Night 38 a couple weeks past, and he certainly did not seem like the Hendo of older for the first 10 minutes. However, what people forget is that the fight was scheduled for 25 minutes, and Henderson got the job finished in the 16th minute of the struggle. So I feel like lovers 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’s been unbeaten in his mixed martial arts career and basically untested for the most part as he’s been pretty much perfect in all of his struggles, including his three in the UFC against Roy Nelson, Frank Mir, and Pat Cummins. But I genuinely believe Henderson is a 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 folks 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 serve as the co-main occasion of UFC 175 if that event occurs. I think that’s a fair spot for DC, but that I wouldn’t surprised at all when 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 ideal test for DC and if Cormier can complete him in remarkable fashion, he’ll have truly earned his title taken against Jon Jones.
