UFC 170's Daniel Cormier doesn't see UFC on FOX 10 broadcast duties as distraction
In a little more than four weeks, Daniel Cormier (13-0 MMA, 2-0 UFC) will make his light heavyweight debut at UFC 170 against former champ and current top contender Rashad Evans (21-3-1 MMA, 14-3-1 UFC). So why is “DC” breaking camp to take part in this weekend’s UFC on FOX 10 broadcast?

Dan Henderson discusses his new contract, moving to MW, testing and more
The UFC has suffered two heavy blows to their roster over the course of the last three months. With Georges St. Pierre stepping away from the sport and Anderson Silva very likely facing a year layoff or a possible retirement, the small handful of big PPV draws they had -of which Silva and GSP were included-have taken a big hit. There are only so many times Ronda Rousey and Jon Jones can fight in a year, so many have been left looking for a solution. The answer, at least in part, has been there all along, though. Dan Henderson, despite the recent dents on his fight resume, still carries the power of name recognition, experience and skill. His career is far from over, and to look past him as an opportunity to beef up those PPV numbers would be foolhardy. The interest in the rematch with Shogun has fans excited and just goes to show that he can still create excitement and anticipation for the UFC.
