Ashley Sanchez defeats Erin Toughill


On Saturday April, 9 at Freestyle Cage Fighting: 46 in Shawnee, Oklahoma

Ashley Sanchez (2-2-0) defeaed Erin Toughill (10-3-1) by unanimous decision in their 160-pound professional MMA match.

Erin had not fought since May, 8 2009 and Ashley last fought MMA April, 3 2008.

Ashley trains at Central Illinois Combat Club where she is coached by Bob Long.

Hopefully we can see Ashley drop down in weight now and fight at 155-pounds same for Erin.


  1. Well, I am not really surprised. Erin had one good showing against a non-ranked opponent (Karen Williams) in her last 4 or 5 fights.

    IMO, she lost to Jan Finney, and she won a really close match against Emily Thompson.

    Erin looked great against smaller opponents. The sport has grown, has become more competitive and has left her behind.

    I don't think we will ever see Erin vs Cyborg, which is a shame, but I wish her luck...

  2. Toughill was a great fighter. I'd love to see her fight Cyborg, Carano, Rousey, etc....
