Tim Hague, the previous UFC fighter referred to as “The Thrashing Machine,” died Sunday, two days after he was critically injured when he was knocked out in a boxing match towards former Edmonton Eskimos defensive finish Adam Braidwood.
Hague’s sister, Jackie Neil, introduced the dying in a household assertion.
“It’s with unimaginable unhappiness, sorrow and heartbreak to report that Tim has handed away immediately,” the assertion stated. “He was surrounded by household, listening to his favourite songs. We’ll miss him with so enormously.”
The match Friday night time on the Shaw Convention Centre was promoted by KO Boxing.
The 33-yr-previous Hague, who grew up on a farm in Boyle, Alberta, was a heavyweight educated in jiu-jitsu. He was 21-thirteen as an MMA fighter earlier than switching to boxing final summer time.
