Former UFC heavyweight Tim Hague tragically passed away on Sunday as a result of brain injuries sustained in a boxing match in Edmonton, Alberta.

Hague’s sister Jackie Neil wrote the following statement:

It is with incredible sadness, sorrow, and heartbreak to report that Tim has passed away today. He was surrounded by family, listening to his favorite songs. We will miss him with so greatly. We ask for privacy during this difficult time.

Hague was 34 years old.

He was critically injured Friday night during a match against Adam Braidwood. Hague was knocked out in the second round when Braidwood delivered a punch that sent the boxer crashing to the mat. He was immediately taken to a hospital where he underwent surgery to relieve pressure caused by bleeding in his brain. He remained in a coma until his death Sunday.

“I know Tim actually begged for this fight,” training partner and friend Victor Valimaki told CTV News. “He talked to the promoters and begged for this fight. He wanted it.”
