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 occur 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. Formerly, Cormier had been linked to a struggle against Rafael Feijao, but the UFC has reportedly thought twice about that matchup and is going to do Cormier/Hendo instead. Although the report was stated to be untrue by UFC president Dana White via Twitter, we all know that White likes to keep these kind of things in house until they are 100% official, and undoubtedly 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 is the struggle that makes most sense in the 205lb division at the moment. There are a good deal of individuals out there discussing how bad Henderson looked in the first two rounds of his fight 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. 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 press have been way 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 career and essentially untested for the most part as he has been pretty much flawless in all his fights, including his three in the UFC against Roy Nelson, Frank Mir, and Pat Cummins. But I truly believe Henderson is a much more dangerous fighter than all three of those men, and this fight 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 struggle with Cormier has a big favorite, if it really goes down. My guess is that DC opens roughly -400 for the fight, one which is very likely to serve as the co-main event of UFC 175 when that event happens. I believe that’s a neutral place for DC, but that I wouldn’t 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 ideal test for DC and if Cormier can finish him in remarkable fashion, he’ll have really earned his title shot against Jon Jones.
