    why is this guy fighting dan henderson.

    he should be getting a fast track towards a title shot and he is wasting his time fighting 40 year olds. seriously, fighting patrick cummins, roy nelsons does nothing for him.

    what horrible match choices. this guy will never make it.

    Jones is already booked for Gus. DC is just getting an easy fight, so he still has a guaranteed TS after Jones and Gustafsson fight. Not as if anybody else was close to a title shot.

    Unless if some crazy shit happens and Cormier lose, but that seems unlikely.

    Cummins was a last-minute replacement for arguably the 2nd best LHW in UFC history. Nelson has a huge name, and Dan Henderson is top 5 in most people's best-fighter-all-time list.

    Are you really not understanding why he's taking the fights he's taking?

    Didn't someone mention that in vlog that the winner might be getting a title-shot? I guess that helps as well when you're picking fights.

    Although, Hendo will not get a shot if he wins, mark my words.

    Because dc plans on getting that title shot in by 2015. But if Cain magically retires he'll move back up to hw. And won't fight for the title until 2016.

    He'll get there though. He could have fought Gus and would literally be fighting for the title next. But he was afraid he couldn't find the right rice cakes in London.

    Im not so sure that Dan wont get the shot. He is a marketable name and one that Jone's can build his resume on. But easy win for Jones if it does happen.

    If Hendo lands a H bomb its going to scrumble the LHW division rankings.

    If this fight happens the ufc will be a huge joke. Ufc151 or whatever it was. Would have been alot more ideal. But even then we all knew it would be a Jones domination. Now it might be more one sided then Randy vs Tony. .. unless offcourse Hendo gets that one lucky punch. Which is not something to hype a fight on.

    I can't fault Cormier. He was scheduled to fight Rashad and Rashad pulled out. So who does that leave?

    Gus is fighting Jones
    Davis lost to Rumble
    Rashad is recovering from surgery
    Teixeira is recovering from fighting Jones
    Shogun is mending from a broken nose
    Bader
    Nogueira- scheduled to fight Rumble
    Te-Huna and Minuwa aren't big enough names
    Same with Ovince St.Preux isn't a big name neither

    Fighting Henderson (who himself is coming off of KOing Shogun) keeps Cormier active and adds a marquee name to his resume....I see nothing wrong with Cormier taking this fight
