ProMMA.info’s Vixens of Vengeance, the CageDivas, spoke with top female fighter Erin Toughill this week. Toughill is of course a pioneer in women’s MMA.

The Divas asked her about her upcoming fight on Nov. 7 with Marloes Coenen which will be featured on Strikeforce:

“I had a meeting with Scott Coker up in LA and talked to him for about an hour or so and just expressed what I wanted to do in the division and how I’d like to be a part of it… I think a lot of people knew that Aug. 15 I was supposed to be on the under-card and my management at the time, I just had a lot of issues with communication and contract issues, and we just weren’t able to get anything written to have me involved in that portion… By the time everything blew aside… it was just too late to do anything. From that point until now we have been negotiating and it finally came about even if it was by default. I’m happy to get my opportunity. It was a multi-fight deal that I signed and this will be the first one and I’m taking Cyborg’s place because she got injured.”

Well, I guess Sean O’Haire will have the opportunity to fight in the cage once again. Of course, the cage will be jail and he’ll be fighting for his virginity.

TMZ.com reports that on Sunday, Sept. 6, 2009 O’Haire was arrested for battery and criminal trespassing. The PRIDE and K-1 Hero’s veteran and former WWE and WCW champion allegedly began screaming, throwing things, and physically attacking his girlfriend in her Savannah, Ga. home.

O’Haire’s rage eventually escalated to the point of choking his girlfriend according to the report. She was able to escape and call the police, telling them she didn’t know what had caused O’Haire to become so enraged, but that it had happened several times over the course of their relationship.  O’Haire was released on less than $5000 bail.

Gina Carano will take a break from fighting to star in 'Knockout.'
Gina Carano will take a break from fighting to star in 'Knockout.'

I know we were all hoping for Gina Carano to make an instant comeback from her loss to Cris Cyborg; but as my momma always says, “You can want in one hand and crap in the other and see which one fills up faster.”

What does this mean? It means Gina will not be in the cage for quite awhile. Instead, she has signed a deal to star in Steven Soderbergh’s newest flick Knockout. With plans to begin production in late January and filming to take place in Ireland, Turkey, and the US, Gina will be pretty tied up for the next year and a half.
