Report: Daniel Cormier vs. Dan Henderson in the works for UFC 175

Quote:
Despite past predilections, it looks like Daniel Cormier may have a fight with Dan Henderson coming. Cormier had stated in the past that he'd rather not fight Henderson, due to his "man crush" on the former Strikeforce champ. But it looks like the UFC has put an end to the note passing and the hand holding following Henderson's comeback win over Mauricio Rua at UFC Fight Night Natal earlier this month. MMA Fighting reports that a source "with knowledge of the situation," has tabbed Hendo as next in line for Cormier.

On last week's episode of "UFC Tonight," it was reported that Cormier vs. Cavalcante was being discussed for the event -- and it was -- however, the promotion decided to offer Henderson the Cormier fight following his thrilling comeback win over Shogun Rua on March 23. Had Henderson turned down the fight for whatever reason, the UFC most likely would have booked Cormier vs. Cavalcante.
Cormier will enter the bout fresh off his first round knockout win over Patrick Cummins at UFC 170. He's 3-0 in the UFC so far with wins over Cummins, Roy Nelson, and Frank Mir. For Henderson, his victory over Rua comes on the tail of a string of bad performances. Back to back to back losses at the hands of Lyoto Machida, Rashad Evans, and Vitor Belfort saw his stock drop in the eyes of many fans and media, while building the narrative that he might not have a lot of miles left in the tank. His win over Rua came after two solid rounds for Shogun that saw Henderson dropped once in the first and second round. A win over Cormier, even a less than spectacular one, would be a huge feather in Henderson's cap at this stage in his career.

UFC 175 is set to take place on July 5th in Las Vegas, Nevada. The card will be headlined by a middleweight title fight between reigning champion Chris Weidman and former light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida. No other bouts have been announced for the card as of yet.

Pleased Cormier isn't getting gifted a LHW shot, Hendo is a dangerous fight for anyone but DC should still get the W.

I never count any fighter out, but even I'm struggling to give Henderson any sort of chance in this fight.

He said its not done. That does not necessarily mean they are not trying.

Im not sure what Bader is doing right now but for some reason id like to see Cormier vs Bader.

I'd like this too. I'm still a big hugger of Bader's nuts though! If he can just gameplan a bit more intelligently I still think he can make waves at LHW.

Well sounds like it may not be happening. But I hope Cormier fights someone that isn't an unknown before getting a title shot (not like it was his fault Rashad got hurt).

It's not his gameplans. It's his fight IQ. He could have puy Glover away but instead he just stood there anf lined up telegraphed falcon punches. He might as well have said counter me right now and stuck his chin out. Same thing against Jones, not that I think he ever had a shot, but why would you ever pull guard? He was getting beat yeah but why let the guy with the best gnp out there get on top of you because you can't take him down willing taking away your one shot at winning.

I'm one of the few who think Hendo could win this. Hendo's greco is pretty damn good. I think he'll do well against the cage and is a better striker than Cormier.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.
