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 (www.mmajunkie.com). A replacement search is currently underway for Straus, who most recently appeared this past October in a non-tourney fight.

Facing UFC vet Alvin Robinson, Straus earned a second-round submission win. The Cincinnati native, who now works with American Top Team in Coconut Creek, Fla., expressed a desire to keep busy as a queue of contenders lined up for Curran's title.

The line again got moving this past month when Curran defended his title with a win over Patricio "Pitbull" Freire at Bellator 85.

It's not the first time injuries have delayed the featherweight division. Curran suffered a broken orbital bone that delayed his meeting with Freire.

A standout wrestler, Straus made it to the finals of Bellator's Season 4 tournament before losing to Freire. He then entered the Season 6 competition and beat Jeremy Spoon, Mike Corey and Marlon Sandro to win the competition and claim a $100,000 payout.
