The world of combat sports can be cruel.

Muay Thai kickboxing champion Tiffany van Soest posted a photo to her Instagram account revealing some corrupt news involving a Muay Thai kickboxing promotion. The Lion Fight champion says that she still has not been paid from Lion Fight Promotions for her championship bout that took place two months ago.

Van Soest captioned her post, “Unfortunately it has come to this. It’s a shame, but I have more than one and will win more in the future. #AndStill #Unpaid #WorldChampion #iThoughtProsGotPaid #thetruthhurts #heartbroken Thanks for everything @lionfightofficial”

Text in her photo says, “Lion Fight Promotions has still not paid me for my championship bout two months ago. I need to sell my World Title to pay my bills and relieve the debt accumulated in preparation for that bout.”

It is a very unfortunate situation for the world champion Muay Thai kickboxer and fans have been siding with her, giving a lot of grief to Lion Fight Promotions in the comments of her post.
