Muay Thai champ Tiffany van Soest says she’s ‘one or two years away’ from breaking out in MMA

After making her name as a champion kickboxer under the Lion Fight banner, winning titles in two separate weight classes, Tiffany van Soest is looking to expand her horizons.

The 27-year-old "Time Bomb" recently signed deals with the kickboxing promotion Glory, as well as an MMA deal with Invicta FC. She competes May 13 at the Glory 30 Super Fight Series against Emma Hasshass in Los Angeles.

And, though an opponent hasn’t been named as of yet for her Invicta FC debut -- which will double officially as her MMA debut -- van Soest says the fight will take place on Sept. 23.

I don't know but it doesn't take much to be successful in women's MMA. The girl with the belt now lost to the former champ twice. Anything is possible.

I think there are some onteresting match ups for her at 115. Her one day squaring up with JJ is a fun prospect or any of the other credentialed kickboxers in that division. Though I can see her getting squashed and subed by fighters like Torres, Rose and Esparza until she demonstrates reasons not to think that way.
