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 at UFC 175 this July in Las Vegas. Formerly, Cormier had been connected to a fight against Rafael Feijao, but the UFC has reportedly thought twice about that matchup and will do Cormier/Hendo instead. Although the report was stated to be untrue by UFC president Dana White via Twitter, we all understand that White enjoys to maintain these types of things in house till they are 100 percent official, and undoubtedly as the old expression goes,”Where there is smoke there is fire.” I truly do believe this matchup involving 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 initial two rounds of his fight with Shogun Rua at UFC Fight Night 38 a couple weeks ago, and he certainly did not seem like the Hendo of old for the first 10 minutes. But what people forget is that the struggle was scheduled for 25 minutes, and Henderson got the job finished in the minute of the struggle. I feel like fans and press have been far overly 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 basically untested for the most part as he has been pretty much perfect in all his fights, including his three in the UFC against Roy Nelson, Frank Mir, and Pat Cummins. However, I truly believe Henderson is a much more dangerous fighter compared to all three of these guys, and this struggle between DC and Hendo is no walk in the park for DC, regardless of what some people are saying. That said, clearly Henderson would put in 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 that is likely to serve as the co-main event of UFC 175 if that event happens. I think that is a neutral spot for DC, but I would not surprised at all if the gambling public bets him up to some crazy number, possibly. Hopefully we get confirmation of the bout soon, since I think Hendo is the ideal test for DC and when Cormier can complete him in remarkable fashion, he will have really earned his title taken against Jon Jones.
