Already with an established reputation in female mixed martial arts as one of the most commonly avoided fighters in the business, Strikeforce 145 pound title threat Erin Toughill has once again seen an anticipated bout fall through due to not being able to find an opponent with the nerve to face her.

FiveOuncesofPain.com was recently able to learn from sources close to the situation that a total of seven women were contacted as potential opponents for the bout, and all seven have refused the matchup, leaving Toughill without a fight on January 30.

5 Oz. was the first to report that Erin was originally expected to return to action at FCF (Freestyle Cage Fighting) 39 on January 30 from the Firelake Grand Casino in Shawnee, Oklahoma. The card will still feature an extremely intriguing eight female 135 pound tournament with the winner being granted a title shot in the division over at Strikeforce in the near future.

Yeah, I get the sense that a 145-lb division is going to be difficult to fill. Women like Toughill, Santos and Carano would have to chop off a limb to make 135, and there's not much in it for a smaller woman to move up, just so she can get clobbered by Godzilla.
