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 MMAFighting.com, Daniel Cormier is likely to face legend Dan Henderson at UFC 175 this July in Las Vegas. Previously, 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. Even though the report was said to be false by UFC president Dana White via Twitter, we all understand that White enjoys to keep these kind of things in house until they are 100 percent official, and of course as the old saying goes,”Where there’s smoke there is fire.” I really do think this matchup between Cormier and Henderson happens because it is the struggle that makes most sense from the 205lb branch at the moment. There are a lot of people out there talking about how bad Henderson looked in the initial two rounds of his fight 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 ten minutes. However, what people forget is that the fight was scheduled for 25 minutes, and Henderson got the job done in the minute of the struggle. I feel like lovers and press have been way overly critical of Henderson believing that, you know, he won the fight with Shogun. As 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 his struggles, including his three at the UFC against Roy Nelson, Frank Mir, and Pat Cummins. But I truly believe Henderson is a much more dangerous fighter than all three of those guys, and this fight between DC and Hendo isn’t a walk in the park for DC, regardless of what some folks are saying. That being said, clearly Henderson would enter the fight Cormier has a big favorite, if it really goes down. My guess is that DC opens about -400 for the fight, one that is very likely to function as co-main event of UFC 175 when that event occurs. I think that is a neutral place for DC, but that I wouldn’t surprised at all if the gambling public bets him up to some crazy number, possibly. We get confirmation of this bout soon, since I think Hendo is the right test for DC and if Cormier can finish him in impressive fashion, he will have truly earned his title shot against Jon Jones.
