Christine Ferea on Tiffany Van Soest fight: One of us is gonna go to sleep or both of us are gonna be bleeding

Christine Ferea predicts war at Invicta FC 23

Two ladies will both be making their second appearances in the Invicta Fighting Championship cage this Saturday night in Kansas City when Christine Ferea takes on  Muay Thai Sensation, Tiffany Van Soest.

The difference between the two is, Ferea has nothing to lose and everything to gain, while her opponent may be experiencing just the opposite.

Ferea tells MyMMANews, “It’s gonna be a good fight man. One of us is gonna go to sleep or both of us are gonna be bleeding.”

Tale of the Tape – Van Soest

When Van Soest was signed to the Invicta FC roster it was expected that she was going to steamroll through her opponents, given her vast experience in the art of stand up combat sports.  With a professional kickboxing record of 17-2-1, Van Soest may have believed that her experience would make for an easy transition to MMA.

There are conflicting reports as to whether or not her second fight was amateur or pro as it took place in China, but VanSoest lost the fight to Jin Tang in via triangle choke, and then in her Invicta FC debut and pro MMA debut she was worked over and submitted by Kalyn Schwartz who was also making pro MMA debut.  Several MMA sites have the Tang fight listed as amateur, some have it as pro.

While she still has to worry about the possibility of chokes in the Ferea fight, the likelihood that it will end on the feet is much higher.  However, a loss for Van Soest would mean a three fight deficit as a pro in MMA.

The fight was the first pro fight of Ferea’s mixed martial arts career.  She was undefeated with three wins as an amateur before turning pro.  Two of the wins came by way of early first round knockouts.

She is a striker through and through, training at MMA Gold in El Dorado Hills, California.
