Rising UFC light heavyweight contender Daniel Cormier scored what may have been his biggest MMA win with a one-sided destruction of former Pride and Strikeforce champion Dan Henderson in the co-main event of last night’s (May 24, 2014) UFC 173 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Using his Olympic-level wrestling to slam the 199-pound Henderson with ease, “DC” showed us why he’s worthy of a title shot at the winner of the upcoming Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson rematch, which is tentatively slated for UFC 177 in late August.
