Toughill's next fight likely not in Strikeforce

by Robert Sargent | source:

After a planned August 21st bout with Shana “Rock Solid” Olsen was cancelled earlier this week, the next fight for Erin “Steel” Toughill is unlikely to be contested inside a Strikeforce cage. Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker confirmed the news with earlier this evening.

Coker stated that previous plans to reschedule the Toughill vs Olsen fight for September or October are no longer targeted, but that Toughill remains on the Strikeforce radar. Should she win her fight outside of Strikeforce, a long awaited bout with Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos is a possibility.

Citing health problems, general grievances and now issues with making weight, Toughill has withdrawn from at least three scheduled or tentatively planned Strikeforce fights and nearly a year has elapsed since the outspoken former boxer was first set to step inside a Strikeforce cage.

 Jillian would wind up bloodied and stuffed in a trunk if she tried to take away Erin's Twinkies.

She's a joke and a (crazy) blowhard. Coker's response was perfect; prove yourself and then we'll see.

She appears to have some serious issues in her life that may require treatment.

who's to say she won't pull this shit again if she wins and is scheduled to face Cyborg? She's fucked Strikeforce over 3 times in the past, I don't get why they are showing her so much loyalty.

I think the real problem is that there aren't many(any) worthy challengers for Cyborg. He has this great female fighter and nobody for her to fight.
