Erin Toughill off August 15th Strikeforce event

by Ariel Helwani | source:

Female mixed martial arts fighter, Erin Toughill, will have to wait a little longer to make her Strikeforce debut. Toughill was once slotted to compete on Strikeforce's August 15 card, but the organization's director of communications, Mike Afromowitz, confirmed with FanHouse on Thursday that she is only being reserved as an injury replacement in case Gina Carano or Cristiane Santos get injured prior to their 145-pound title bout scheduled for the same card.

Toughill (10-2-1) is currently riding a four-fight winning streak. According to her agent, Ken Pavia, she was offered a fight against Santos on Strikeforce's April 11 card, but wanted a little more time to train for it and had one fight left on her Palace Fighting Championship contract.

I'm sure it's just because I'm a newbie here but I'm kinda geeking out at the fact a few of the top female Mixed Martial Artists out there are casually discussing the fight-game in this thread. lol

Hmmmmm, thats funny. I did "edit" due to "bad" being an adjective and "bad(ly)" being an adverb...It's great that you have the need to feel superior in SOME way. So by all means, have at it, honey. It looks like Ill fight on TV on an upcoming show, so it works out. I dont wanna say too much on the agreement to step in,But Im in line to get winner. So like I said, still waiting for all this contract stuff to get settled. It's stressful, to say the least. I just hope it gets done ASAP.

Financially it would still make sense for them to fight, even if not for the belt. And presumably they'd be forgiving of each other not making weight.Erin vs the winner should be good.

Somehow, I'm sure Sarah was smiling when she typed all that. ^^^ Of course, Sarah probably smiles even when she's asleep.

 Well, it's true I did NOT take the fight at 145 pounds in February...since I now fight at 135. It's like you said, you used to fight higher, but have worked your way down, and so have I. At this point there is absolutely no reason for me to go up in weight, so why would I call anyone about a fight that you are looking for? I'm sorry that your fight didn't go through, and do hope that you're able to find some fights in the future against opponents of your own size. Good luck! Sarah By the way, "badly" is actually an adverb, NOT an adjective :P

well that sucks this card has been put through a wranglererin, you are next in line to fight the winner of cyborg/carano, does that mean that this will be your next fight now that you are not on the card?also, how are you handling the cut to 145?

 Hey Erin- Maybe you can't speak publicly about this, but the word is that they would like to have you as a replacement for Gina or Cyborg if there is an injury (provided that they do not find a fighter for you). Have they also asked you to be available to make weight just in case there is an issue with weigh-ins? Im just curious. Could be an interesting turn of events.

Erin I wanna hear and see some more trash talking when you fight Gina or Cyborg. I know you're good friends with Gina but the male fighters do it and are friendly afterwards.
