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 MMAFighting.com, 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 stated to be false by UFC president Dana White via Twitter, we all know that White enjoys to keep these kind of items in house till they are 100% official, and undoubtedly 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 struggle that makes most sense from the 205lb branch right now. There are a lot of people out there talking about how bad Henderson looked in the initial two rounds of his struggle with Shogun Rua at UFC Fight Night 38 a couple weeks ago, and he absolutely didn’t seem like the Hendo of old for the first ten minutes. But what people forget is that the struggle was scheduled for 25 minutes, and Henderson got the work finished in the 16th minute of the struggle. I feel like fans and media have been way overly critical of Henderson believing that, you know, he won the fight with Shogun. So far as Cormier goes, he’s been unbeaten in his mixed martial arts career and essentially untested for the most part as he has been pretty much flawless in all of his fights, including his three at 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 these men, and this struggle between DC and Hendo isn’t a walk in the park for DC, regardless of what some folks are saying. That being said, clearly Henderson would put in the fight with Cormier has a large favorite, if it indeed goes down. My guess is that DC opens roughly -400 for the struggle, one that is likely to serve as the co-main occasion of UFC 175 if that event happens. I believe that’s a fair spot for DC, but that I would not surprised at all if 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 right test for DC and if Cormier can complete him in remarkable fashion, he will have really earned his title shot against Jon Jones.
