Additional notes added by Dave Meltzer
Tim Hague’s sister confirmed today that the former UFC fighter has passed away at the age of 34. Hague had been in critical condition after a knockout loss to former CFL star Adam Braidwood in a boxing match on Friday night in Edmonton.
Braidwood had knocked Hague down six times in the fight, which ended in the second round. Hague fought in UFC from 2009 to 2011 and saw boxing as a way to start a new career.
Hague had also been active in MMA in the last several years, having fought 11 times since the start of 2014 and going 6-5 during that span. All of those fights ended via KO.
Hague had a 1-4 UFC record during the 2009-2011 period, with his career highlight being a first round submission over Pat Barry at UFC 98. He also went 3-0 for World Series of Fighting, with all of his wins coming via KO.
Our condolences to the Hague family on this tragic loss.
