Boxer who was in critical condition after fight is dead, family says

Former UFC heavyweight Tim Hague died today after suffering a knockout loss in a boxing match on Friday night in Canada.

The 34-year-old Hague fought in MMA for 10 years before turning to boxing.

Hague suffered a brain haemorrhage sustained after the KO 79 boxing match-up against former Edmonton Eskimos player Adam Braidwood at the Shaw Conference Centre.

Hague switched codes to fight Braidwood, 33, on Friday night, and was sent crashing to the canvas following a flurry of shots in the second round.

Multiple reports surfaced stating that Hague had passed away Saturday morning, but his sister has since refuted those reports. We will miss him with so greatly.

But 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.

Guptill said his role as an opener was to provide some stability and set up a platform to launch the New Zealand innings . Williamson pleaded guilty and was fined 40 per cent of his match fee, while the rest of his team got 20 per cent fines.

The post originally read: 'Once we got Tim backstage and with the doctor we could tell he needed to go to the hospital.

Sportsnet reported Saturday that Hague had undergone surgery to relieve pressure around his brain and is in a coma.

Tim is now in a coma.

With that in mind it's clear there's no way that Hague, a kindergarten teacher and family man, should have been stepping back into the ring this past weekend, but nevertheless it's still a heartbreaking situation and our thoughts are with his loved ones at this hard time. He compiled a 21-13 MMA record before switching to boxing.

Hague entered this bout with Braidwood with a 1-2 overall record and was knocked out in December.

The fight lasted two rounds before a left hook knocked Hague to the ground.
