After having just one fight over a 48-month stretch, Erin Toughill has stormed back into women’s MMA with a vengeance.

Wins in her last two fights for the Palace Fighting Championship, Toughill has placed herself firmly back on the map, and now looks to continue her winning ways on Friday night against up and comer Emily Thompson.

Still, even with her successful return, Toughill continues to have to plow a tough road through success. But she doesn’t intend on letting it get the better of her.

“I can say this camp has not been as easy as others, but that’s how it rolls,” admitted Toughill. “Part of doing all this is being strong enough to deal with the highs and lows of the physical part – as well as the emotional stress – it can have on you.

“I have my eye on the ‘W’, though, so it’ll be fine.”

Even having dealt with everything going on in her life, Toughill still has to fight Friday against Emily Thompson.

When asked what she feels about the match-up, she replied, “Nothing about her per-say. I’m going to what I do when I fight MMA – and that’s win.

“I really have a different intensity coming into this fight. Whether I KO her or submit her – it doesn’t matter – I’m just going to win.”
