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 in UFC 175 that July in Las Vegas. Previously, Cormier was linked to a struggle against Rafael Feijao, but the UFC has apparently thought twice about that matchup and will do Cormier/Hendo instead. Even though the report was said to be untrue by UFC president Dana White via Twitter, we all know that White enjoys to maintain these kind of items in house till they are 100% official, and undoubtedly as the old saying goes,”Where there’s smoke there is fire.” I really do think this matchup between Cormier and Henderson occurs because it is the struggle that makes most sense in the 205lb division at the moment. There are a good deal of individuals out there talking about how bad Henderson appeared in the first two rounds of his fight with Shogun Rua at UFC Fight Night 38 a few weeks ago, and he certainly didn’t seem as the Hendo of older for the first 10 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 fight. I feel like fans and press have been far overly critical of Henderson considering that, you knowthat he won the struggle with Shogun. So 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 of his struggles, 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 those men, and this struggle 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 enter the struggle Cormier has a big favorite, if it really goes down. My guess is that DC opens roughly -400 for the fight, one which is likely to function as co-main event of UFC 175 when that event occurs. I think that is a neutral place for DC, but I wouldn’t surprised at all when the betting public bets him up to a crazy number, either. We get confirmation of this bout soon, since I presume Hendo is the ideal test for DC and if Cormier can complete him in remarkable fashion, he’ll have really got his title taken against Jon Jones.
