Dan Hornbuckle's nickname might be "The Handler", but it appears even he can't handle the flu. The illness has forced him off Thursday's all-day Sengoku event in Japan, where he was to have faced Ryo Chonan in an MMA fight. Taisuke Okuno is the replacement. Okuno participated in the Sengoku Welterweight GP earlier this year, reaching the semifinals before losing. His career mark is 10-5-2, all 5 losses have been decisions.

UPDATE: Apparently it's not flu. Bellator wouldn't let him take the fight. (Link above updated with additional details)

I'm definitely disappointed this fight isn't on, whatever the cause. I'm a big fan of both Hornbuckle and Chonan.
