Exclusive: WBC Champ Tiffany “Timebomb” Van Soest Says She Is Cage Bound, Wants To Fight MMA | MMA NEWS
Crowned WBC Intercontinental Champion Tiffany “Timebomb” Van Soest signed a multiple fight deal with Lion Fight promotion and talks with BJPENN.com’s FIST-ta-CUFF radio before the 1st fight of her new contract for the New Year where she takes on 4x World Champion Alexis Rufus at a catch weight January 25 at Lion Fight 8.
The “Timebomb” was doing some late night cardio which explains the reason she sounded out of breath during the interview. Tiffany mentions she would jump at the opportunity to train and compete at Thailand.
“It’s the place where Muay Thai started and it’s a beautiful country.”
Her goal for the year is to defend the belt or get an opportunity to get another belt regardless of the weight division – she’s willing to move up or down.
“Let’s start my belt collection.”
MMA is also in the Timebomb’s sights mentioning she has 2 amateur fights under her belt, cross training in wrestling and does a little bit of jiu jitsu off and on.
“If I get the call, I would love to. Look forward to seeing me in the cage. I can’t put a time stamp on when but it will happen.”
