UFC 173: Daniel Cormier vs. Dan Henderson Fight Video Highlights


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.

    This was a really dull fight.

      You're obviously not deeply enthralled by the fibre of this sport….

    My response to the take downs. "Oh, it looks like Dan defended… SLAM !!. Never mind…" "Surely Dan will defend this one…. (Cormier tosses Henderson through the air like a pizza dough.)"

      That was crazy. I dont think Ive seen somebody get ragdolled that bad before. Cormier literally threw him. I cant wait to see what he can do against Jones.

      Its crazy how strong Cormier is. It's ridiculous… He packs some serious dense muscle mass. ALL functional muscle!

        Yeah, it's not those chiseled cut up guys you have to worry about. It's the stocky fat bast**ds.

    I felt bad for Dan during the fight. We're seeing the end of a legend! However DC needs 1 more legit win IMO vs someone who isn't 43 and against a top 5 guy
    This win isn't that impressive against an aging man not on TRT anymore

      Got an awful feeling that they're going to bless eeerrrrrr match DC up with Brandon The Truth Vera, that's if Dean of Mean Jardine is not ready.

    If he doesn't get Jones…then Johnson is the logical choice. The rest of the top are coming off a loss or injury (Evans, Davis, Rua, Glover etc)
