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 Very Likely to face legend Dan Henderson in UFC 175 that July in Las Vegas. Previously, Cormier had been linked to a fight against Rafael Feijao, but the UFC has apparently thought twice about that matchup and will do Cormier/Hendo instead. Even though the report was stated to be false by UFC president Dana White through Twitter, we all understand that White likes to keep these kind of items in house till they are 100 percent official, and of course as the old expression goes,”Where there is smoke there is fire.” I truly do believe this matchup between 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 individuals out there discussing how awful Henderson looked in the initial two rounds of his struggle with Shogun Rua in UFC Fight Night 38 a few weeks past, and he absolutely didn’t look as 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 fight. I feel like lovers and media have been far overly critical of Henderson considering that, you know, he won the struggle with Shogun. So far as Cormier goes, he has been unbeaten in his mixed martial arts profession and basically untested for the most part as he has been pretty much perfect in all his struggles, 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 compared to all three of these guys, and this fight 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 fight with Cormier has a large favorite, if it really goes down. My guess is that DC opens roughly -400 for the struggle, one which is very likely to function as co-main event of UFC 175 when that event occurs. I think that’s a neutral place for DC, but that I would not surprised at all when the betting public bets him up to a crazy number, either. We get confirmation of the bout soon, since I think Hendo is the right test for DC and when Cormier can finish him in impressive fashion, he will have really got his title taken against Jon Jones.
