Celebrity News: Timothy Edward Lee Hague, better known as Tim Hague, debuted as a mixed martial arts fighter in 2006, when he won by submission to Eric MacDonald at an event in Canada, his native country.
He has since forged an enviable MMA career (only one loss in 9 appearances) that in three years catapulted him into the UFC, the world’s largest mixed martial arts organization.
Tim Hague had forged a long career in mixed martial arts. In July 2016, Hague lost by TKO to Poland’s Michał Andryszak and ended his career in the Octagon, retreating to a record 21 wins (15 KO, 4 per submission and 2 by judges’ decision) and 13 defeats.
At that time, the Canadian decided to fly to Edmonton, southwest of Canada, where he settled to teach at the first school École Bellevue. “His students loved him and admired him,” said the director of the educational establishment after the news about his death.
His love of fights plunged him into boxing and climbed the ring four times, the last at Friday’s Shaw Conference Center in Canada. There he was knocked out by the former American football player, also a boxer, Canadian Adam Braidwood.
Hague was the father of Brady, a young man of just 9 years who now must learn to live in the absence of who was his idol. “He was a great father,” said his friend Victor Valimaki.
On the other hand, his family opened a page of donations in the site GoFoundMe to pay the funeral funds and already have collected more of USD 42 thousand.
