"Tim remains in critical condition". While he regained consciousness following the knockout, he was then placed in the Intensive Care Unit with what was being described as a brain injury.

Former UFC heavyweight Tim Hague is reportedly brain dead after suffering a knockout loss in a boxing bout in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada on Friday night.

As the flashed left-right combination made contact, 34-year-old Hague could be seen falling motionless to the canvas, his head bouncing back in a horrific manner.

Jackie Neil said in a brief emailed statement on Saturday that her brother, Tim Hague, is in critical condition.

It was backstage in the dressing room where Hague's main issues began, as the fighter soon began to fall desperately ill in the aftermath of the event.

"Tim is now with all his immediate family". 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. He compiled a 21-13 MMA record before switching to boxing. His last UFC event was a Fight Night show in January 2011 and his final pro-MMA fight was in July 2016.

Hague grew up playing a variety of sports, enjoying hockey in particular and began working out and lifting weights when his parents gave him a gym membership as a graduation gift after high school.
