A bout of pneumonia has forced veteran featherweight Mark Hominick (16-8) off the Jan. 24 "Affliction: Day of Reckoning" card, Affliction Entertainment today announced.

Hominick was set to meet L.C. Davis (12-1) on the event's HDNet-televised preliminary card. The main card for the event, which takes place at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., airs on pay per view.

Tom Atencio today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) a replacement for Hominick has been secured, and he said the fighter will be revealed in the next few days once a bout agreement has been signed.

is Wilson Reis available?

That would be a good replacement.

I'd like to see Yves Edwards step up and take his place.

I remember watching Hominick vs Gurgel and that was 1 sided, but entertaining.

This sucks because I was pretty excited for this fight, but I was really having a tough time picking a winner here. So for my selfish reasons, I'm glad that this fight won't be happening.

Hopefully Mark gets well soon, though.
