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 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 is going to perform Cormier/Hendo instead. Although the report was stated to be untrue by UFC president Dana White through Twitter, we all understand that White likes to maintain these kind of items in house till they are 100% official, and of course as the old saying goes,»Where there is smoke there’s fire.» I truly do believe this matchup involving Cormier and Henderson happens because it is the struggle that makes most sense in the 205lb division at the moment. There are a good deal of people out there talking about how bad Henderson appeared in the initial two rounds of his fight with Shogun Rua at UFC Fight Night 38 a couple weeks ago, and he absolutely did not look like the Hendo of old for the first 10 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 fight. So I feel like lovers and press have been way too critical of Henderson considering that, you know, he won the struggle 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’s been pretty much perfect in all his struggles, including his three at the UFC against Roy Nelson, Frank Mir, and Pat Cummins. However, I genuinely believe Henderson is a more dangerous fighter than all three of these men, and this struggle between DC and Hendo is no walk in the park for DC, regardless of what some folks are saying. That said, clearly 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 which is very likely to function as co-main event of UFC 175 when that event happens. I think that’s a fair spot for DC, but that I would not surprised at all when the betting public bets him up to a crazy number, either. Hopefully we get confirmation of the bout soon, since I presume Hendo is the right test for DC and if Cormier can complete him in impressive fashion, he’ll have really got his title shot against Jon Jones.
