Erin Toughill
Originally rumored to be a participant on the August 15th “Strikeforce: Carano vs. Cyborg” fight card, Erin Toughill has instead been tapped as a reserve combatant for the events headlining bout. Should either of the scheduled participants, Gina Carano or Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos, be forced to withdraw, Toughill will take their place. According to a report from MMAFanhouse Strikeforce director of communications Mike Afromowitz confirmed Toughill’s role Thursday.

Toughill is a former Palace Fighting Championship competitor, who has amassed a 10-2-1 record in her MMA career. Her only loss in her last ten bouts was due to a disqualification for elbows at Smackgirl ‘World ReMix 2004.’ She has also garnered a professional boxing record of 8-2-1, but hasn’t competed in the sport since 2006.

Also of note, Toughill joined Carano on the second season of American Gladiators as “Steele”, the show has since been cancelled.
