Kansas City, Mo. — Invicta Fighting Championships today announced a new addition to its roster.
Decorated striker Tiffany Van Soest has signed to compete in the strawweight division.
The 27-year-old has yet to make her professional MMA debut, but is a decorated Muay Thai and Shorin-ryu karate practitioner, previously holding the WBC Muay Thai International Super Bantamweight Championship, as well as Lion Fight’s Super Bantamweight and Featherweight titles.
“I am beyond thrilled to have this incredible opportunity,” said Van Soest. “Striking has always been my passion and my official MMA debut has been greatly anticipated. I could not be happier.”
Invicta FC President Shannon Knapp also weighed in on the newest addition to the promotion, “Tiffany is as good as they come in the Muay Thai world and now she’s testing herself as a complete martial artist against some of the top strawweights in MMA, as well. What’s not to like? The fans win here.”
Look for Van Soest to make her Invicta debut in 2016.
