Toughill drop not a weight issue

by Steven Marrocco | source:

Erin Toughill told on Thursday that her weight was not an issue going into a Nov. 7 bout with Marloes Coenen at Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Rogers.

Toughill has a walk-around weight between 160 and 165 pounds and was well on her way to her contracted weight limit of 145 pounds before a medical issue arose.

One month ago, she began experiencing several abdominal pains during training and went to a doctor to get checked out. After several tests, doctors told her she had ovarian cysts that had ruptured during training.

“It’s a common occurrence for women to have this issue,” she said. “But there’s four or five different levels of the medical issue I have. It could go anywhere from benign, which is what I have, to cancerous. The type of thing I have is exacerbated by me taking hits to my body and throwing and doing very intense training.”

I going to guess that feels like having a nut in a vice.Speedy recovery.

I've bashed her since she came here, but she has the best shot at ruling the women's division. I hope she gets better and with the money that's thrown around I'm sure she's not faking anything.
