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 Very Likely to face legend Dan Henderson at UFC 175 this July in Las Vegas. Previously, Cormier had been linked to a fight against Rafael Feijao, but the UFC has reportedly thought twice about that matchup and is going to perform Cormier/Hendo instead. Although the report was stated to be untrue by UFC president Dana White through Twitter, we all know that White likes to maintain these kind of items in house until they are 100 percent official, and undoubtedly as the old saying goes,”Where there’s smoke there’s fire.” I really do believe this matchup between Cormier and Henderson occurs because it is the fight that makes most sense in the 205lb branch right now. There are a lot of individuals 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 couple weeks past, and he certainly did not look like the Hendo of old for the first ten minutes. However, what people forget is that the struggle was scheduled for 25 minutes, and Henderson got the job done in the minute of the struggle. I feel like lovers and media have been way overly critical of Henderson believing 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 has been pretty much perfect in all his fights, including his three in the UFC against Roy Nelson, Frank Mir, and Pat Cummins. But I genuinely believe Henderson is a much more dangerous fighter than all three of these guys, and this fight between DC and Hendo isn’t a walk in the park for DC, regardless of what some people are saying. That said, obviously Henderson would put in the struggle with Cormier has a large favorite, if it really goes down. My guess is that DC opens roughly -400 for the struggle, one that is very likely to serve as the co-main event of UFC 175 if that event happens. I believe that’s a neutral place for DC, but I would not surprised at all if the gambling public bets him up to some crazy number, either. We get confirmation of this bout soon, because I think Hendo is the ideal test for DC and when Cormier can finish him in remarkable fashion, he’ll have truly got his title shot against Jon Jones.
