Ex-UFC fighter Tim Hague reportedly brain dead after knockout

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

Multiple reports surfaced stating that Hague had passed away Saturday morning, but his sister has since refuted those reports. Hague entered the bout with Braidwood with a 1-2 overall record and was knocked out in December. He was surrounded by family, listening to his favourite songs.

Family members told CTV Edmonton Tim Hague died Sunday after sustaining a brain injury in a boxing match Friday night.

But in the second round of the contest, Braidwood delivered a brutal left-right combination that sent Hague crashing to the canvas. He was then immediately rushed to a nearby hospital and required emergency surgery to relieve pressure from a brain bleed. "We will miss him with so greatly", Neil wrote.

RealFightStories.com reported Saturday night that Hague was on life support as his family made arrangements for organ donations. He compiled a 21-13 MMA record before switching to boxing.

But he was transported to the hospital when it became evident something wasn't right following the knockout, according to reports from teammates.

Hague's MMA career will be best remembered for his stunning first round submission victory over Pat Barry in his UFC debut at UFC 98.

It's from this point on that things really started to go downhill for Hague as he'd go on to suffer three knockout losses in the space of eight months.

Many were asking why the fight wasn't stopped long before the knockout. UFC vet Sarah Kaufman was ringside and snapped a photo of a fallen Hague just moments after he was knocked out.
