Boxer who was in critical condition after fight is dead, family says

Former UFC Fighter Tim Hague in Critical Condition Following KO Loss in Boxing Match

Former UFC Fighter Tim Hague in Critical Condition Following KO Loss in Boxing Match

"It is with incredible sadness, sorrow and heartbreak to report that Tim has passed away today", the statement said. Video of the fight shows Hague being knocked down several times before the bout was stopped for good in the second round. He was surrounded by family, listening to his favourite songs. He fell hard and his head bounced off the canvas. "We will miss him with so greatly", the statement reads. He was then immediately rushed to a nearby hospital and required emergency surgery to relieve pressure from a brain bleed.

Neil says in her statement that Hague's immediate family is now with him, and that they are asking for prayers and privacy at this very bad and hard time. Hague last fought in MMA in July 2016, losing to Michał Andryszak by knockout.

Afterwards, Hague was left in a coma, and tragically that led to MMA journalist Mike Russell later reporting that, according to multiple sources at the hospital, he had been declared brain dead.

The five fight UFC veteran earned a record of 1-4-0 in the UFC, with that lone win coming over Pat Barry at UFC 98.

He rebounded in 2010 with knockout wins in Edmonton over Zak Jensen and Travis Wiuff, and those were enough to get him invited back to the UFC.

His last fight in boxing resulted in a knockout in December.

A former UFC fighter who was reportedly knocked out in a boxing event in Edmonton remains in hospital.

In total Hague would suffer three losses in a row before being released by the UFC in 2010.

Throughout his career, though, when Hague has won fights, he's been a finisher.
