    Broken hand cancels Daniel Straus' title fight with Pat Curran at Bellator 95 | News

    A long wait is about to get longer for Bellator's Season 6 featherweight tournament winner, Daniel Straus.

    Straus (21-4 MMA, 7-1 BFC) broke his hand during a training session and has been forced to withdraw from a title fight against featherweight champion Pat Curran (18-4 MMA, 8-1 BFC) at Bellator 95, which takes place April 4 at Revel Resort & Casino in Atlantic City, N.J.

    Multiple sources close to the event passed along the news to MMAjunkie.com (UFC blog for UFC news, UFC rumors, fighter interviews and event previews/recaps). A replacement search is currently underway for Straus, who most recently appeared this past October in a non-tourney fight.

    Phew!!

    When I saw this in the right side column, all you can see is "Broken hand cancels Daniel..."

    I thought it was Cormier. I was mad before I saw the actual article.

    Can't say I was really looking forward to the fight anyway....but Straus has some finishing power and good subs, he just seems content to grind wins out though, hell he's even proud of it. Not a great fight selling attitude for a champion to have.

    "I don't call the fighting in my films 'violent', I call it 'action'. An action film borders between fantasy and reality. If I were to be completely realistic in my films, you would call me a violent, bloody man. I would simply destroy my opponent by tearing his guts out. I wouldn't do it so artistically." ~Bruce Lee
