Lion Figh has announced that it has signed featherweight Tiffany van Soest to an exclusive, long term fight deal.

In a press release from the organization, Lion Fight CEO Scott Kent was quoted saying about the agreement:

“We are pleased to have Tiffany Van Soest, one of the most exciting and dedicated Muay Thai fighters in the world, signed to our roster of top athletes,” said Kent. “Since making her debut at LION FIGHT 5, Tiffany has established herself as a top fighter in the Lion Fight female featherweight championship division, always delivering incredible performances and taking on the top women in the sport. We are thrilled to call her a Lion Fight athlete and look forward to seeing her back in action again soon.”

The 25 year-old Van Soest, who has gone 9-1 in pro kickboxing, relayed:

Signing with Lion Fight was a no-brainer – it’s the best Muay Thai promotion in the world. I want to thank Scott Kent and Christine Toledo for this opportunity and for giving myself and other Muay Thai fighters such a great place to call home.”

Van Soest is coming off a fifth round, stoppage win over Sindy Huyer earlier this month at Lion Fight 16.

The press release says that Kent is working on booking a rematch between van Soest and champion Caley Reece for late 2014, early 2015.

Reece defeated van Soest by split decision at Lion Fight 13 in February.
