The MMA world is in shock after learning former UFC fighter Tim Hague suffered a severe injury following a knockout loss in a boxing match in Edmonton. The fighter was initially reported as having passed earlier in the day, but his sister has updated friends and fans through social media saying that he is in critical condition. Some reports are stating he is brain dead.

Amidst the outpouring of support for the 33-year-old father of one, there are questions directed towards the competency of the Athletic Commission that put this fight in place.

After being knocked out multiple times in the last two years, Hague was still booked for the match against Adam Braidwood. He was knocked down twice in the first round and looked increasing confused after the second knockdown, even shooting for a takedown in a boxing match.

As the match against Braidwood continued, Hague would make it to his feet but would be stumbled multiple times (even touching his gloves to the canvas for a technical knockdown) before ultimately being knocked out. The referee and commission could be seen working on him almost immediately, and Hague would get up to the stool so the doctors could check him as Braidwood had his hand raised. You can even see Hague make his way out of the ring with some help from the ringside crew.

When the fighter got backstage, teammates knew something was wrong:

Many are calling out the Canadian boxing commission that cleared him to fight. Hague has a string of knockout losses in recent years and was fighting a strong up and coming boxer. He didn’t need any additional head trauma:

Those who knew the fighter are sharing thoughts and stories about the gentle giant on Twitter.
