MMA ODDS AND ENDS FOR TUESDAY: DC VS. HENDO RUMORED FOR UFC 175
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 likely to face legend Dan Henderson at UFC 175 that July in Las Vegas. Formerly, Cormier had been connected to a fight against Rafael Feijao, but the UFC has apparently thought twice about that matchup and will do Cormier/Hendo instead. Even though the report was stated to be false by UFC president Dana White via Twitter, we all understand that White likes to maintain these kind of items in house until they are 100% official, and undoubtedly as the old expression goes,”Where there is smoke there is fire.” I truly do think this matchup between Cormier and Henderson happens because it is the struggle that makes most sense from the 205lb branch at the moment. There are a lot of people out there discussing how bad Henderson looked in the first two rounds of his struggle with Shogun Rua in UFC Fight Night 38 a few weeks ago, and he certainly did not look as the Hendo of older for the first ten minutes. But what people forget is that the fight was scheduled for 25 minutes, and Henderson got the job finished in the 16th minute of the fight. So I feel like lovers and media have been far too critical of Henderson considering that, you knowthat 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’s been pretty much flawless in all of his fights, including his three in 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 those men, and this struggle between DC and Hendo is no walk in the park for DC, regardless of what some people are saying. That being said, obviously Henderson would put in the struggle Cormier has a big favorite, if it really goes down. My guess is that DC opens about -400 for the struggle, one which is likely to serve as the co-main occasion of UFC 175 when that event happens. I believe that is a fair place for DC, but that I would not surprised at all if the betting public bets him up to some crazy number, possibly. Hopefully we get confirmation of the bout soon, because I think Hendo is the ideal test for DC and if Cormier can complete him in remarkable fashion, he will have truly got his title shot against Jon Jones.
