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 MMAFighting.com, Daniel Cormier is likely to face legend Dan Henderson at UFC 175 that July in Las Vegas. Previously, Cormier was connected to a struggle against Rafael Feijao, but the UFC has apparently thought twice about that matchup and is going to do Cormier/Hendo instead. Even though the report was stated to be untrue by UFC president Dana White through Twitter, we all understand that White likes to maintain these kind of items in house until they are 100% official, and undoubtedly as the old saying goes,”Where there’s smoke there is fire.” I truly do think this matchup between Cormier and Henderson occurs because it’s the fight that makes most sense from the 205lb branch right now. There are a lot of individuals out there talking about how bad Henderson appeared in the first two rounds of his fight with Shogun Rua in UFC Fight Night 38 a few weeks past, and he certainly didn’t look like the Hendo of old for the first 10 minutes. But what people forget is that the struggle was scheduled for 25 minutes, and Henderson got the job finished in the minute of the struggle. So I feel like lovers and press have been way too critical of Henderson believing that, you knowthat he won the fight with Shogun. So far as Cormier goes, he’s been unbeaten in his mixed martial arts career and basically untested for the most part as he has been pretty much flawless in all of his struggles, including his three in the UFC against Roy Nelson, Frank Mir, and Pat Cummins. However, I genuinely believe Henderson is a much 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, regardless of what some people are saying. That being said, obviously Henderson would put in the fight with Cormier has a large favorite, if it really goes down. My guess is that DC opens about -400 for the fight, one which is very likely to function as co-main event of UFC 175 when that event happens. I believe that is a fair place for DC, but I wouldn’t surprised at all if the gambling public bets him up to some crazy number, possibly. 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’ll have really earned his title shot against Jon Jones.
