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 likely to face legend Dan Henderson in UFC 175 that July in Las Vegas. Previously, Cormier had been 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. Although the report was stated to be untrue by UFC president Dana White through Twitter, all of us know that White enjoys to keep these types of items in house until they are 100 percent official, and of course as the old saying goes,”Where there is smoke there is fire.” I really do believe this matchup involving Cormier and Henderson occurs because it’s the struggle that makes most sense from the 205lb branch right now. There are a good deal of people out there talking about how awful Henderson looked in the initial two rounds of his fight with Shogun Rua in UFC Fight Night 38 a few weeks ago, and he certainly did not look as 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 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. 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 of his struggles, including his three in the UFC against Roy Nelson, Frank Mir, and Pat Cummins. But I genuinely believe Henderson is a more dangerous fighter compared to all three of those guys, and this fight between DC and Hendo is no walk in the park for DC, regardless of what some people are saying. That said, clearly Henderson would enter the struggle with Cormier has a big favorite, if it indeed goes down. My guess is that DC opens about -400 for the struggle, one which is likely to function as co-main occasion of UFC 175 when that event occurs. I think that is a fair place for DC, but I wouldn’t surprised at all if the gambling public bets him up to a crazy number, either. Hopefully we get confirmation of the bout soon, since I think Hendo is the right test for DC and if Cormier can complete him in impressive fashion, he will have truly got his title taken against Jon Jones.
