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 likely to face legend Dan Henderson in UFC 175 that July in Las Vegas. Previously, Cormier had been linked to a struggle against Rafael Feijao, but the UFC has apparently thought twice about that matchup and will do Cormier/Hendo instead. Although the report was stated to be untrue by UFC president Dana White through Twitter, all of us know that White enjoys to keep these kind of items in house till they are 100 percent official, and of course as the old expression goes,”Where there is 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 branch right now. There are a lot of individuals out there talking about how bad Henderson looked in the first two rounds of his fight with Shogun Rua at UFC Fight Night 38 a few weeks past, and he certainly didn’t seem as 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 work finished in the minute of the fight. I feel like lovers and press have been way overly critical of Henderson believing that, you know, he won the fight with Shogun. As far as Cormier goes, he has been unbeaten in his mixed martial arts career and essentially untested for the most part as he has been pretty much perfect in all his struggles, including his three in the UFC against Roy Nelson, Frank Mir, and Pat Cummins. However, I genuinely believe Henderson is a much more dangerous fighter compared to all three of these men, and this struggle between DC and Hendo is no walk in the park for DC, despite what some people are saying. That being said, clearly Henderson would enter the fight Cormier has a big 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 occurs. I believe that’s a neutral spot for DC, but I would not surprised at all when the betting public bets him up to some crazy number, either. Hopefully we get confirmation of this bout soon, since I think Hendo is the ideal test for DC and if Cormier can finish him in impressive fashion, he’ll have really earned his title taken against Jon Jones.
