Daniel Cormier vs. Dan Henderson full fight video highlights online from UFC 173

Check 'em out here.

If there was any doubt that Daniel Cormier is ready to challenge Jon Jones (or Alexander Gustafsson) for the light heavyweight championship, he emphatically erased that last night (Sat., May 24, 2014) with a dominant submission victory over Dan Henderson in the co-main event of the UFC 173: "Barao vs. Dillashaw" pay-per-view (PPV) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Cormier, a former Olympic wrestler who was undefeated as a heavyweight before cutting down to 205-pounds, was "too heavy on top", according to "Hendo". He was also far too strong, throwing the old dog around like a rag doll before finally putting him down for a forced nap in the third and final round. Because Henderson is aging and nowhere near the fighter he was in his prime you could argue Cormier is operating from a stronger position by looking so superior against -- if only slightly -- inferior opposition, but he can only beat who is put in front of him. He did that, in an incredibly effective manner and with little to no trouble. Does that mean he could do the same to Jon Jones? Perhaps. Perhaps not. But aren't you now salivating at the thought of finding out?
