UFC Veteran Tim Hague Brain Dead Following Boxing Match

Unfortunately, the 34-year old passed away Sunday.

Keeping fans up to date with Hague's progress, his friend and fellow MMA fighter Cody Krahn took to Facebook to issue a brief statement, which was later deleted. In his UFC debut, Hague picked up a submission win over Pat Berry, unfortunately, he lost all four of his other UFC bouts that followed, continuing to fight on the Canadian regional scene, and most recently dropping a first round KO loss in Russian Federation, which took place almost a year before his boxing loss last night.

Former UFC heavyweight Tim Hague died at the age of 33 on Sunday, following a knockout loss in a boxing match on Friday.

From early in the first round it was clear that Braidwood had the upper hand and Hague was rocked and sent to the canvas several times before he was finally knocked out cold in the second round.

Hague suffered a serious brain injury after a brutal knockout loss in a boxing match over the weekend which left him in a coma.

AG Rosenstein sees no reason to fire Mueller
If Mueller knew he was going to be named special counsel, it is unlikely he divulged that information to Trump. Rosenstein says the attorney general would be the only one who could fire Mueller.

Reports of Hague's death proved to be premature as his sister said he is now in critical condition. According to various reports, Hague was clearly not right backstage and was rushed to the hospital.

Hague is originally from Boyle, Alta. and fights out of Edmonton.

Tim is now in a coma. We will miss him with so greatly.

Hague injury may serve to raise concerns ahead of the contest, with McGregor set to take to the ring with one of the most accomplished boxers of all time.

He held a career MMA record of 21-13, last competing in July 2016 in a losing effort to Michal Andryszak at Absolute Championship Berkut 41. Hague's professional boxing record was 1-3, with two knockout losses. He had lost four of his last five MMA bouts.
