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 in UFC 175 this July in Las Vegas. Previously, Cormier had been linked to a fight against Rafael Feijao, but the UFC has apparently thought twice about that matchup and is going to perform Cormier/Hendo instead. Even though the report was said to be untrue by UFC president Dana White via Twitter, we all know that White likes to maintain these kind of things in house until they are 100% official, and undoubtedly as the old expression goes,”Where there’s smoke there’s fire.” I really do think this matchup between Cormier and Henderson occurs because it’s the struggle that makes most sense in the 205lb division at the moment. There are a good deal of people out there discussing how bad Henderson looked in the initial two rounds of his fight with Shogun Rua at UFC Fight Night 38 a couple weeks ago, and he certainly didn’t look like the Hendo of old for the first ten minutes. But what people forget is that the struggle was scheduled for 25 minutes, and Henderson got the work done in the 16th minute of the fight. I feel like fans and media have been way too critical of Henderson considering that, you knowthat he won the fight with Shogun. So far as Cormier goes, he’s been unbeaten in his mixed martial arts career and basically untested for the most part as he’s been pretty much flawless in all of his fights, 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 men, and this fight between DC and Hendo isn’t a walk in the park for DC, despite what some folks are saying. That said, obviously Henderson would enter the fight with Cormier has a large favorite, if it really 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 is a fair spot for DC, but that I wouldn’t surprised at all when the betting public bets him up to a crazy number, possibly. We get confirmation of this bout soon, since I think Hendo is the ideal test for DC and when Cormier can finish him in remarkable fashion, he’ll have truly earned his title taken against Jon Jones.
