A truly awful story after former UFC fighter Tim Hague suffered a serious brain injury after getting knocked out in his boxing match.

But in the second round of the contest, Braidwood delivered a brutal left-right combination that sent Hague crashing to the canvas. "He was surrounded by family, listening to his favorite songs".

Hague's sister Jackie Neil confirmed her brother's death in a brief social media post on Sunday afternoon.

He had been knocked down three times in the first round and a further two times in the second before it was waved off.

Sportsnet reported Saturday that Hague had undergone surgery to relieve pressure around his brain and is in a coma. We will miss him with so greatly. Hague last fought in MMA in July 2016, losing to Michał Andryszak by knockout.

UFC vet Sarah Kaufman was ringside and snapped a photo of a fallen Hague just moments after he was knocked out. Hague had a 21-13 record in MMA, including a 1-4 record inside the Octagon with his only win his only win being a submission over Pat Barry at UFC 98.

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.
