UFC Veteran Tim Hague Brain Dead Following Boxing Match


Former Ultimate
Fighting Championship
heavyweight Tim Hague is
reportedly brain dead after suffering a brutal knockout loss Friday
night in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Hague battled Adam
Braidwood
in the Shaw Conference Centre and was knocked
completely out in the second round.

Braidwood (8-1, 7 KOs) hit Hague clean on the head and when the
10-year mixed martial arts veteran fell flat onto his back, his
head bounced violently off the canvas. According to various
reports, Hague was clearly not right backstage and was rushed to
the hospital. From there, things turned grave as the Canadian had
to have surgery to relieve pressure from his brain bleeding.

Sportnet’s James Lynch
was the first to report on Hague’s condition and followed up that
he is in a coma. Realfightstories.com’s Mike Russell added that
Hague has been declared brain dead.

moments after he was knocked out.

Hague entered the bout with Braidwood with a 1-2 overall record and
was knocked out in December. His last MMA bout was in July 2016
where he was knocked out with a head kick and punches from Michael
Andryszak. The “Thrashing Machine” stood at 21-13 in MMA, including
a 1-4 record inside the Octagon; his lone win being a submission
over Pat
Barry
at UFC 98. He had lost four of his last five MMA
bouts.
