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 at UFC 175 that July in Las Vegas. Formerly, Cormier had been connected to a struggle against Rafael Feijao, but the UFC has reportedly thought twice about that matchup and is going to perform Cormier/Hendo instead. Even though the report was stated to be false by UFC president Dana White via Twitter, we all understand that White likes to keep these types of things in house until they are 100% official, and undoubtedly as the old expression goes,”Where there’s smoke there’s fire.” I truly do believe this matchup between Cormier and Henderson occurs because it’s the fight that makes most sense in the 205lb division at the moment. There are a good deal of people out there talking about how awful Henderson appeared in the initial two rounds of his struggle with Shogun Rua in UFC Fight Night 38 a few weeks ago, and he absolutely didn’t look like 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 work finished in the 16th minute of the fight. I feel like fans and press have been way too 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 career and essentially untested for the most part as he has been pretty much perfect in all of his fights, including his three in the UFC against Roy Nelson, Frank Mir, and Pat Cummins. However, I genuinely believe Henderson is a much more dangerous fighter compared to all three of these guys, and this fight between DC and Hendo is no walk in the park for DC, despite what some people are saying. That being said, clearly Henderson would enter the struggle 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 serve as the co-main occasion of UFC 175 when that event happens. I believe that’s a neutral place for DC, but that I wouldn’t surprised at all if the gambling public bets him up to a crazy number, either. We get confirmation of this bout soon, since I think Hendo is the right test for DC and if Cormier can finish him in remarkable fashion, he will have truly got his title taken against Jon Jones.
