Toughill fights Jan. 30 in non-Strikeforce event, picks Coenen over champ “Cyborg”

Erin Toughill is hard at work preparing for a return to action with an eye on Strikeforce gold.

Toughill, a former professional boxer and competitor on NBC’s “American
Gladiators” reincarnation, was forced to withdraw from a rematch with
Marloes Coenen at “Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Rogers” in November and wants
to stay active before returning to Strikeforce in the spring.

Toughill is expected to face Remy Ruyssen at Freestyle Cage Fighting on Jan. 30, the same night Coenen vies for the Strikeforce women’s 145-pound title against champion Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos.
