In response to Shana Olsen facebook post against Erin Toughill, Toughill (who is an active web browsing type of a MMA fighter) will never let this pass her by not firing back, read what she has to say with Olsen’s blog on her facebook page:
“Women who could have been picked BEFORE you. Do you have any idea how you jumped that many places & were asked to fight a #2 ranked fighter? Is that coincidence? You were, in no way, SF’s pick to fight me lol I asked them b/c we had discussed this in the past. My warm up fight is based on what I want…not what you “think” you deserve. The title IS 145, but this is NOT the title. This is NOT a “title contention” fight b/c you are NOT ranked next to me LOL How would a #2 (ME) and a #9 or #10 fighter (you) be fighting for a title contention? That’s right…we wouldnt. But in your small mind…evidentally we are.
You have been fighting 1 year & the way you are running your mouth shows that. You need a reality check b/c this is not a “title contention” fight for you & this bout is not based around you. If that was the case, SF would have picked the half a dozen women ranked ABOVE YOU. But for some reason you think you are higher on the ranking, when in fact, you are NOT. I asked for 150 lbs b/c I was comfortable making that in 6 weeks. I know you are a bigger woman, so I said they could offer 155 lb if you were open to it. IDK what this thing about “149lb” is, but why would i say “NO” if I was asking for 150 lbs? You really think one lb makes a difference? You are making yourself look like a fool b/c
there was NO contract yet & this is FIVE WEEKS OUT, not the day of the fight, Moron. Funny for someone to throw stones, right? Wasn’t it YOU who fought Kaitlin Young several months ago and you came in WAY OVER WEIGHT for the fight? You were fighting someone who came in on point…and you did NOT! You actually SIGNED a contract and you didnt make weight & YOU are going to run your mouth about a fight w/ me that never even happened?!
Anyone can be brave behind a computer screen, Shana. And I hope this makes you feel better about yourself & gives you some fake confidence, b/c you are showing how insecure you really are. I gave myself, my fans and YOU the respect you deserve by NOT signing a fight in a short amount of time if I didnt think I could make 145. Since when is that an issue? If you wanted to kick my ass SO BAD, or you THINK you could kick my ass lmfao, you should have taken the fight, right? Why is 150 an issue? You coulda fought me and had a chance to take my #2 ranking by giving away a couple lbs. But instead, You’re guna try and make me look bad when I never signed anything and I gave FIVE WEEKS notice? You are a complete idiot, truly you are. You’re pissed bc you dont get to fight…but you could have; we both could have. This is NOT based around YOU, Shana…this is based around me. So when you “get that”, you might calm down and stop posting inane shit on ur FB. So when I fight next, SF can/should pick the half dozen ppl ranked above you; and then you can fight the girls above you 1 by 1; and then work your way up the ladder like I have; and then maybe you’ll get your reality check.
I hope you are getting false reinforcement through all of this. I think you went about this the wrong way and you should have most likely heard the whole truth instead of half of it. It’s truly pathetic when ppl feel the need to sink to this level and try to talk shit when there is nothing to back it up. You make no sense and this proves it. Ok, “Rock Solid” lol Whatever you say…I am so scared of you I dont know how I sleep at night Im so scared of you.”
As Strikeforce is pushing for Women MMA’s exposure, it seems like it’s hard to name a challenger for Cris Cyborg’s championship belt as it is the most recognizable belt in all of Women MMA today. Now with Erin Toughill’s questionable situation on her supposed Strikeforce debut, her supposed opponent Shana Olsen reacts on her blog at prettytoughfighter.com with regards to their fight being in limbo:
After reading your five paragraphs of rambling, I have decided to keep this short and sweet.
The fact that you would consider yourself #2 in the world amuses me Erin. The last time that you fought anyone who was ranked in any combat sport we saw you literally running out of the ring. I really wonder if that was the point where you realized that both boxing and mma have passed you by.
While you’ve been sitting on the sidelines all year talking about how badly you’ve wanted to fight, I’ve stayed active. My last fight was against Yoko who at the time was ranked #6 in the world. Yes, it may be a small step down for me fighting you (an unranked opponent) but for the sake of retiring you, I think it’s worth it.
In closing Erin- Fight- Or shut the hell up and go away. I’m still ready to go on August 21st. If you can handle it, put down the fork, put on your running shoes and meet me in Houston. If not, post your tantrums elsewhere and find a new promotion to poison.
Hugs and Kisses,”
Now if you come to look at it with Strikeforce’s limited 145 women challengers, it will be better for Toughill to step it up and gave the fans what they wanted which is to see her fight in Strikeforce and possibly fight Cris Cyborg in the future that most fans thinks will be better than the Coenen, Carano fights.
