Being a prize fighter isn’t always easy, but like in any profession, a payment is expected after services are rendered.
Apparently that is not the case for Tiffany van Soest (15-2-1).
The Lion Fight two-division titleholder took to the social media site Sqor on Thursday (March 17, 2016) to reveal she has yet to received payment from the muay thai promotion for her last bout at Lion Fight 27, which took place on January 29, 2016.
Van Soest defeated Ashely Nichols that night to win the super bantamweight title, her third straight victory.
Unfortunately it has come to this. It’s a shame, but I have more than one and will win … https://t.co/BCqDGSTmz6 pic.twitter.com/fXsbqXhG8A

“Unfortunately it has come to this, van Soest said in the post. “It’s a shame, but I have more than one and will win more in the future.”
“Timebomb” is currently not under contract with Lion Fight and the California native has recently relocated to Bali, Indonesia, where she trains and teaches at Bali Muay Thai and MMA. Many experts believe she will soon look to begin a career in MMA, something she has mentioned several times in the last year.
Van Soest and her management, EPOK Agency, would not comment on the matter at this time. Lion Fight PR spokesman Scott Zerr informed MMAmania.com that the promotion would be issuing a statement on the matter later this afternoon.
MMAmania.com will update this story as more information becomes available.
