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 Very Likely to face legend Dan Henderson at UFC 175 that July in Las Vegas. Previously, Cormier was connected to a struggle against Rafael Feijao, but the UFC has reportedly 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 know that White enjoys to keep these types of things in house until they are 100 percent official, and of course as the old expression goes,»Where there’s smoke there is fire.» I really do believe this matchup between Cormier and Henderson occurs because it’s the fight that makes most sense from the 205lb division at the moment. There are a good deal of individuals 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 certainly didn’t seem like the Hendo of old for the first ten minutes. However, what people forget is that the fight was scheduled for 25 minutes, and Henderson got the work done in the 16th minute of the struggle. So I feel like fans and press have been way too critical of Henderson believing that, you know, he won the fight with Shogun. So far as Cormier goes, he has been unbeaten in his mixed martial arts profession and essentially untested for the most part as he has been pretty much flawless in all his fights, including his three at the UFC against Roy Nelson, Frank Mir, and Pat Cummins. However, I truly believe Henderson is a much more dangerous fighter than all three of these men, and this struggle between DC and Hendo isn’t a walk in the park for DC, regardless of what some folks are saying. That being said, obviously Henderson would enter the fight Cormier has a large favorite, if it really goes down. My guess is that DC opens about -400 for the struggle, one which is very likely to serve as the co-main occasion of UFC 175 if that event happens. I think that’s a neutral place for DC, but I would not surprised at all when the betting public bets him up to some crazy number, possibly. Hopefully we get confirmation of this bout soon, since I presume Hendo is the right test for DC and if Cormier can finish him in impressive fashion, he’ll have truly got his title taken against Jon Jones.
