April 23, 2014 12:11 pm by bjpenn.com staff 8 Comments

We reported last month that Dan Henderson vs. Daniel Cormier was in the works for an upcoming UFC event, and today that scrap got confirmed.

Today, while on ESPN (below), Dana White, the UFC President, confirmed the matchup between the two light-heavyweights and their co-main event status on UFC 173.

UFC 173 was originally slated to feature a middleweight title fight between Vitor Belfort and Chris Weidman. That bout was scrapped weeks ago and now, Renan Barao vs. TJ Dillashaw will serve as the main event.
