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 Very Likely to face legend Dan Henderson at UFC 175 that July in Las Vegas. Formerly, Cormier was connected to a struggle against Rafael Feijao, but the UFC has apparently thought twice about that matchup and will do Cormier/Hendo instead. Although the report was said to be false by UFC president Dana White through Twitter, all of us know that White likes to keep these types of things in house till they are 100% official, and of course as the old saying goes,”Where there is smoke there’s fire.” I truly do think this matchup involving Cormier and Henderson occurs because it’s the struggle that makes most sense from the 205lb division at the moment. There are a lot of people 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 absolutely did not look like the Hendo of older for the first 10 minutes. But 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 fans and press have been far overly critical of Henderson believing that, you knowthat he won the fight with Shogun. So far as Cormier goes, he has 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 fights, including his three at the UFC against Roy Nelson, Frank Mir, and Pat Cummins. However, I truly believe Henderson is a more dangerous fighter than all three of these men, and this fight between DC and Hendo isn’t a walk in the park for DC, despite what some people are saying. That being said, obviously Henderson would enter the fight with Cormier has a big favorite, if it indeed goes down. My guess is that DC opens roughly -400 for the struggle, one which is likely to serve as the co-main occasion of UFC 175 if that event occurs. I believe that’s a neutral place for DC, but I wouldn’t surprised at all if the betting public bets him up to a crazy number, possibly. We get confirmation of the bout soon, since I presume Hendo is the ideal test for DC and when Cormier can complete him in impressive fashion, he will have really got his title shot against Jon Jones.
