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, Daniel Cormier is Very Likely to face legend Dan Henderson in UFC 175 this July in Las Vegas. Previously, Cormier was linked to a fight against Rafael Feijao, but the UFC has reportedly thought twice about that matchup and will do Cormier/Hendo instead. Even though the report was said to be untrue by UFC president Dana White via Twitter, we all know that White enjoys to keep these kind of things in house until they are 100% official, and of course as the old saying goes,”Where there’s smoke there is fire.” I really do believe this matchup involving Cormier and Henderson happens because it’s the fight that makes most sense in the 205lb division at the moment. There are a good deal of individuals out there talking about how awful Henderson looked in the first two rounds of his fight with Shogun Rua at UFC Fight Night 38 a few weeks past, and he absolutely did not seem like the Hendo of old for the first 10 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. I feel like fans and press have been far overly critical of Henderson believing that, you know, he won the struggle with Shogun. As far as Cormier goes, he’s been unbeaten in his mixed martial arts profession and basically untested for the most part as he’s been pretty much perfect in all his fights, including his three in the UFC against Roy Nelson, Frank Mir, and Pat Cummins. However, I genuinely believe Henderson is a more dangerous fighter compared to all three of these men, and this struggle between DC and Hendo isn’t a walk in the park for DC, despite what some folks are saying. That being said, obviously Henderson would enter the struggle Cormier has a large favorite, if it indeed goes down. My guess is that DC opens roughly -400 for the fight, one which is likely to serve as the co-main occasion of UFC 175 when that event happens. I think that is a fair spot for DC, but that I would not surprised at all if the betting public bets him up to a crazy number, either. Hopefully we get confirmation of the bout soon, because I think Hendo is the ideal test for DC and when Cormier can complete him in remarkable fashion, he will have really got his title shot against Jon Jones.
