Erin Toughill defeats Emily Thompson PFC 13
Monday, May 11, 2009
Article By Jenn Gilbraith

Her victory over Emily Thompson by unanimous decision at PFC 13 at Tachi Palace in Lemoore, CA May 8th was veteran Erin Toughill's (10-2-1) third fight in the last six months, defeating Karen Williams in February at the same venue, as well as a unanimous decision victory over Jan Finney in November, 2008. In November she fought at 150 lbs, in February 148 lbs, but this last cut to 144 lbs. was tough on Erin, cutting 24 of those pounds in
the last two 1/2 weeks. "Cutting that much weight really kicked my butt" said Toughill after the fight. "It's really hard for women to cut that much weight, and it's not healthy. There's been so much controversy over Gina (Carano) and Cyborg not making weight, I was under a lot of pressure."
Emily Thompson (4-1) of Santa Rosa, CA, came out with everything she had, and put up a great fight, according to Toughill. "She really brought her A game, and I fought at about a C+, due to the weight cut. I got tired. She took me down once. But that was about it."
Erin will be taking a well deserved summer off, and has plans for a future with Strikeforce, although nothing has been signed as of yet, the
negotiations are in the works. When asked about the possibility of fighting Gina Carano, she expressed definite enthusiasm. "It's going to happen. I'm not sure who I will fight in Strikeforce before her, maybe Cyborg (Cristiane Santos) , but it will happen".
