    More than a little sad reading the comments on this thread.

    Bust a guy for not making weight but you don’t bring family into it. This is the kind of sh*t that hurts the sport.

    Best of luck to all fighters.


    PS – I think Powell takes this late in the fight. It’ll be a grinder though.

    Hey and to me, Hauge missing wieght is great for Lee, little extra cash and you know he didn’t train hard enough? Shock us all Lee and starch timmy. Would be a great upset! With that being said I tend to aggree that bringing Tim’s family into this is very ‘unclassy’ thing to do poeple, even if you don’t like him.

    Wow. Alot of you “fans” seem to talk out your ass quite a bit. It sucks Hague missed weight, dont talk shit about the guy, though. He has more than proved himself and any of you retarded trolls would be considered lucky to have him as a friend. It seems you nameless bad boys feed off of the attention you so obviously seek on this site. You’re tarnishing the name of any true MMA fan.

    Now watch this comment be disliked about a hundred times, cause you bad ass mother fuckers seem to travel in packs.

    Hague and Mein will put on a hell of a show anyhow… much love to all fighters.

    Wow Hague hater, your a coward to try and insult a guy like that behind a keyboard. What’s wrong with working to support your family and fighting on the side because you love to fight? You are pathetic to have nothing better to do than hate on a guy. This is going to be a entertaining scrap IMO. This whole card looks wicked. Good luck to all the fighters, and have fun!!!

    The hate on here for Tim is unreal! Look what he posted “Lee gets $200”. So thats 20% of his purse so i’m guessing Tim is making $1000 to fight $1000 to win.

    He is doing it as a hobby and for fun! Not for money. Leave him alone. Tim has a good job, went to university and is living his life. Leave the guy alone.

    I love this website. Where else can you find out what gym hang arounds and fighter’s friends who don’t even train actually think of someone?

    It’s actually pretty motivating, I remember after I lost to Clay Davidson a bunch of people went on here saying I’d never amount to anything and that I might as well retire.

    I’ve now won 3 in a row including evening the score with Clay, became the 7th highest ranked MW in Canada and now a title shot in April.

    Keep up the shit talk cowardy trolls, it’s really easy to tell by a person’s comments if they’ve even tried a Jiu Jitzu class or if all their knowledge comes from a night of cheetos and old Pride FC dvds.

    Keep hatin’ haters, it’s a great way to fuel a fire under someone’s ass.

    P.S. How uneventful would this site be if everyone used their real names and had to be held accountable for the comments they write on here?

  16. Terry robertson says:

    The personal hate is crazy for sure. That being said it is unprofessional to come in five pounds over the heavy limit and that does warrant criticism.

    To me it shows a lack of dedication and passion for the sport.

    Coupled with other comments and the whole clothing sponsor fiasco, the “athletes” who are advertised as professionals and label themselves as such do more harm to the sport proving to detractors that they don’t take it seriously as an athlete, why should anyone else. To me that is exactly why local and smaller shows struggle to grow and stick around.

    Commissions and promoters should work to keep professional mma for professional athletes and those who just want to dabble and make a joke of weigh-ins, training, dieting etc. be relegated to rec leagues and old timer events like every other sport!!

    Haha rec league mma now there is a funny thought!

    Cody I agree with what you say, but what would you think about a theory that as long as the sport and organizations don’ t have a standard for the type and kind of athletes being used, besides the good hardcore supporters these type of anonymous uneducated wannabe thug fans are the only type of casual fan the sport will continue to attract in the majority?

  19. Kevin Jones says:

    Cody how do you justify claiming your the #7 ranked middleweight in Canada? Who have you beat in the top 10? Your in the top 10 in Alberta. Not the country. We all know what happens when Alberta fighters fight Ontario and Quebec fighters. Please start beating top 10 guys before you start claiming your the #7 ranked MW in Canada. El Dirte perhaps? Ali Mokdad? Elias? (Well hes pretty much UFC so i guess not)

  20. Cody Krahn says:

    The local MMA scene here is ridiculous. I’m already a pretty jaded and cynical person, but I usually find myself getting annoyed at how many tough guy morons go to fights. Not to mention any guy with a shitty tribal tattoo is a bar fighting expert.

    If MMA has taught me anything it’s that usually the thug looking tough guy who doesn’t know how to fight, chances are he’s sparred maybe once. It’s the nerdy dudes who will fuck you up.

    We need an intellectual overhaul in the local scene, but I don’t see that happening so I’ll just stick to bitching about it on the internet.

  21. yankeesrule says:

    I think a lot of the hating on this site and on amateur mma in general comes from the attitude a lot of these “pioneers” show. Rubs a lot of people the wrong way…and can affect lives. I know a couple guys who have had significant others “be involved” with a guy on the card…just a sport that has a sleezy rep for stuff like that. Not to mention no steroid testing, makes mma look foolish. Anyone can look shredded a any age with a healthy dose of dbol.
    But hey, each to their own. Should be some good battles on this card.

    not my claim, just going by fight matrix

    I’m fighting Brad Stewart in 9 weeks so that’s my main focus. But if I win that one I want much bigger fights. I’d LOVE to fight any of the MW’s on TUF nations once their Zuffa contracts expire.

    Tim, I understand and a mistake is a mistake and I know you haven’t missed weight before. I understand missing weight can be a mistake and doesn’t tell the whole story on a fighters level of dedication, but combined with other actions/comments to some it may not look good.

    At this point in your career you have an opportunity to be an ambassador for the sport and to set an example to younger men and woman looking to get into mma as athletes or just fans that it is a sport that should be taken seriously.

    As one of the few Albertans who can actually say they made it into the show, I hope you will consider that in your future actions, interactions and endeavours instead of being concerned with notoriety and selling t-shirts and tickets at any cost to your own and mma’s reputation as you have said.

    I think my comments are especially valid since you now work at another career to support yourself and fight for your love and passion for the sport.

    Good luck in your fight and future ones as well!

    Also I don’t get where all the anger about Hague missing weight is coming from. If this was a main card fight or a title fight then sure I get it.
    It’s a guy on his way out of mma vs a guy trying to hold on to the dream at 48..? So insignificant.
    Now if Ford missed weight we would have a reason to discuss the topic.

  26. TimHague says:

    Terry im not sure what “actions” youre talking about. I am very helpful to anyone that asks me about getting into mma and give everyone the time of day regardless of who they are. If its the whole sponsor issue with Powell all I said is that if I were ford I’d be insulted too and I support G’dup clothing.

    Last spring when I was going through a very hard time in my life I made a few posts on here that I regret. I should have stayed off the internet in general but hindsight is 20/20 and I didnt realise at the time how bad of shape I was really in. Im better now and Ilike to compete for fun.

    Im proud to be an ambassador of the sport of MMA in Alberta/Canada.

    Boo on not making weight. BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! This is a card that’s gonna hopefully get the fighters some exposure. Best of luck to you, Mike Kent and Tim. I appreciate that you two pricks post here.

    Terry do you forget that we are actually just fighters deep down and love to punch ppl and be punched , f#ck the martial artist aspect of it , most of us just want to throw down , I trained for all of my fights but one in the nwt pretty much by myself , who cares if Tim misses by 1 or 5 , if it was frequent than yeah let it be a problem , lee still fought him who cares… As for all the trash talk about his life outside of fighting and his friends what the hell does that have to do with anything ? F#ck ya’s all IMO , those who can’t teach or criticize !
