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 this July in Las Vegas. Formerly, Cormier had been connected to a fight against Rafael Feijao, but the UFC has reportedly thought twice about that matchup and will do Cormier/Hendo instead. Even though the report was stated to be untrue by UFC president Dana White via Twitter, all of us understand that White likes to maintain these types of things in house till they are 100% official, and of course as the old expression goes,”Where there is smoke there’s fire.” I truly do believe this matchup involving Cormier and Henderson occurs because it’s the fight that makes most sense in the 205lb branch at the moment. There are a lot of people out there discussing how awful Henderson appeared 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 seem like 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 work done in the 16th minute of the fight. So I feel like fans and media have been far too critical of Henderson believing that, you knowthat he won the struggle with Shogun. So far as Cormier goes, he’s been unbeaten in his mixed martial arts profession and basically untested for the most part as he’s been pretty much flawless in all his fights, including his three at the UFC against Roy Nelson, Frank Mir, and Pat Cummins. However, I genuinely believe Henderson is a more dangerous fighter compared to all three of these guys, and this struggle between DC and Hendo is no walk in the park for DC, despite what some people are saying. That being said, obviously Henderson would put in the struggle 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 function as co-main event of UFC 175 if that event happens. I think that’s a fair spot for DC, but that I wouldn’t surprised at all if the gambling public bets him up to a crazy number, possibly. Hopefully we get confirmation of the bout soon, since I presume Hendo is the ideal test for DC and if Cormier can complete him in impressive fashion, he’ll have truly earned his title taken against Jon Jones.
