    Default Hendo/Cormier targeted for UFC 175 on July 5th in Vegas

    Just caught this on Twitter and thought it'd make good news...


    Daniel Cormier vs. Dan Henderson targeted for UFC 175

    By Ariel Helwani @arielhelwani on Mar 31 2014, 6:57p

    Daniel Cormier
    will not be fighting Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante next after all.Instead, Cormier (14-0) will face Dan Henderson (30-11) on July 5 at UFC 175, according to sources with knowledge of the situation. The promotion is expected to announce the news in the coming days.
    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.
    The fight will pit two former Olympians. Cormier, a 2004 and 2008 member of the USA Wrestling Olympic team, improved to 14-0 in his light heavyweight debut last month when he defeated Patrick Cummins via first-round TKO.
    The 43-year-old Henderson, a 1992 and 1996 member of the USA Wrestling Olympic team, snapped a three-fight losing streak when he defeated Rua last week.
    UFC 175, headlined by Chris Weidman vs. Lyoto Machida for the UFC middleweight title, will take place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.

    so will this be a title contender match? I love Dan but I see him being held against the cage for three rounds and losing a decision. I pray he catches Cormier with a H-bomb though
    Believe in Chimichanga's

    I think Cormier is better than Hendo everywhere, including striking, striking defense, takedowns, takedown defense, ground control, cage work, speed and endurance. Hendo edges Cormier in the power department but Cormier also has a lot of power. I'm obviously picking Cormier but damn Hendo and his ability to land that H-bomb at any time. Betting against him is never a sure bet.

    I am a big Hendo fan but Cormier gets the finish in this fight. Hendo being without TRT this fight is a game changer.
    And if you want beef, then bring the ruckus
