Here we possibly go again...a heavily-rumored Erin Toughill vs. Shana Olsen fight at Strikeforce Houston, which could've put Toughill in line for Cristiane Santos had she won, is not happening. Sources close to the promotion said that the cancellation arose when Toughill's ability to make 145 pounds was called into question. When multiple Internet reports cast doubt on the fight – citing issues over the bout's weight limit – both fighters went on the online offensive. Toughill this past week issued a post on her official Facebook page in which she conceded asking for a 150-pound catchweight limit while trashing Olsen. Shortly afterward, Olsen issued a terse response calling out the former "American Gladiators" star. Toughill's most recent professional bout was in May 2009, when she defeated Emily Thompson by unanimous decision. SF spokesman Mike Afromowitz declined to comment on Toughill's status with the promotion, and the fighter did not respond to a request today for comment. It is unknown whether Olsen will be rebooked for the Aug. 21 event.
