Professional Muay Thai fighter and MMA fighter Tiffany “Timebomb” van Soest had an impressive 2013.
In the past year, van Soest went 4-0 in competition. In her first two bouts of the year, Alexis Rufus and Natalie Yip. In March, she defeated United Kingdom star Lucy Payne to win the Lion Fight Women’s Featherweight (-56.7 kg/125 lb) championship.
Eight months later, the Timebomb closed the year with a third-round TKO win over French fighter Magali Foroni.
Van Soest’s performances not only caught the attention of fans, but also the eyes of staff of Awakening Fighters. The website held their 2013 Muay Thai Awards and the Timebomb won two categories: “Personality of the Year” and “KO of the Year.”
