    He has been quite active the past year and time off will be good. With 1 win in his past 8 fights and all 7 of his losses the result of TKO or KO a rest would do him well.

    New fight offers will likely reflect his recent string of fights.

    I have been concussed 3 times in my life. The last time was against Erohkin 2015. Yeah my records bad over the last while, yeah its been a tough road, yeah life challenges us all in different ways and the way my life plays out is nobodys fucking business but my own. I love to compete, and when you fucking losers start travelling to meet the president of Russia and consistently fight top 50-100 in the World Heavyweights, then I’ll still not care about what anyone one of you says about me in negativity.

    You see, it doesnt bother me. It hasnt bothered me my whole career and win or lose, my career has been a big highlight reel. I fought the Alistair Overeem Version of Kilkenny the other night. 6’5 260 (he was 227 in our first fight and a lot softer) If you dont want to challenge yourself to the max, then why are you in this sport?

    Armchair critics and fake fighters will never understand why a guy like me competes and always takes hard fights.

    My Grade 4’s were mad I retired, they want me to try and fight for ACB again this summer. If they want me back, I will go. I’d like to fight the guy Boser lost to. I requested that to my manager Ken Pavia last night.

    Training with a bunch of people that train recreational martial arts (and in most case beginners) at UFC Gym Sherwood Park and then trying to fight top 50-100 in the World HW’s is the reason why your getting the shit kicked out of you.

    A Tim Hague that is motivated and trains with the best 185- HW fighters in Alberta is a very very dangerous and scary dude.

    Mukhomad Vakhaev will murder you if you train for him by training with recreational martial artists at UFC Gym Sherwood Park.

    Since your Grade 4 kids want you to fight MMA, for the sake of the children start training with the Snakepit Crew in Sherwood Park, they have some big fucking dudes and a top notch Coach. Hayabusa and Frank Lee’s is a good idea as well.

    Tim’s record of 1-7 in the last 8 and has been finished in all of the loses. That’s not just a bad record that’s awful. If Tim was a new fighter the commission would have a hard time justifying granting you a license. Tim do your brain a favor and stay retired.

    Also Tim has pretty much burnt bridges with the local mma community he’s just got UFC gym left. If he swallowed his pride and went to snake pit not even sure they would let him train.

    I know when guys lose they feel a lot of stuff emotionally. But it’d be nice if guys retired when they say they’re retiring. Just call it a career. The only guy I’ve ever seen do it is Perez I think.

  22. TimHague says:

    I retired for my students, my students wanted me to continue so I changed me mind. Get over it. My 1-7 record over the past 8 fights is one me. I own that record, not any of you who have an opinion on it. I was battling severe depression for the past 8 years, but I do not blame any of my losses on that. I blame my losses on showing up at anywhere from 30-50% of my true potential on any given night.

    Dr. Karpman prescribed me Wellbutrin (anti-depressant) and a sleep apnea machine as I was waking up 20x per hour through the night for the past who knows 33 years…? I was averaging less than 1 hour of REM sleep for at least 10 years. Now I get over 6. I rapidly lost 30 lbs and now I walk around at 260 instead of 290. I am happy and healthy mentally.

    I am going to continue competing till’ my body says no. Competing is in my blood. I am in the process of mending relationships that suffered due to my ignorance as a sick individual. I appreciate any support as I continue to live my life as a Martial Artist. Anyone who cant support that, I dont want you in my life anyways. You are not a part of it and your opinions simply do not matter what so ever.

    Oh yeah, and I did meet Putin, and spent the week in Russia in summer 2015, with Russian Pop singer, Julia Parshuta. It was a fairytale trip. She took me for Sushi with her publicist and godfather after I got KTFO, I couldnt eat due to Nausea. That did not matter, because she was there for me. She took good care of me.

    Your life is your story, make yours memorable.

    Also Travis Portman, I have reached out to Christian Thomas, and Tanner Boser to offer myself for any sparring or training at any time. I knkow that those are the guys I nee3d to train with to Elevate my game. They are huge tough Heavyweights. I should probably reach out to Jeff Montemurro as well. He used to coach me, and my relationship with him fell apart as I began to spiral downward into depression when my sons mother and my wife abandoned her love for me.

    I think around 2009 is when I became sick. I still dont understand why the woman I married and loved with all my heart, simple decided to stop loving me. I slept on a mattress in the basement of my own house for 3 years while I tried to make things work and keep my family together for Brady. She had the master bedroom. It made training for UFC fights hard. My mind was elsewhere. But its my life and I own it. Its made me who I am today, now I spend a lot of time with my students teaching them about resiliency, belief in themselves and having a stronger more confident mindset. Teaching is a good fit for me. I have a lot of life lessons and “what not to do,” to pass on.

    If people really want to know about me or my story, this is a breif glimpse. I dont mind sharing because I am healthy now, and Brady’s mom is a good mother, and thats all that really matters now.

    Tanner beat Vakhaev. I have asked my manager Ken Pavia for that fight in let august. I can beat Vakhaev, and I will beat him if given the opportunity. If he clips me he clips me, this is the fight business. This is not ballet.

    Fighting Kilkenny was like fighting juiced Overeem. 6’5 260 and solid as hell. Every shot he landed did massive damage. I was by far in the best shape of my life, and by far the quickest I have ever been, for that fight. He clipped me as I should have exercised better head movement early. I’m excited for his next fight.

  25. Old School Jake says:

    Takes a lot of balls to come on here, admit when you have issues and take responsibility for them. So to have people continuously shit on Tim is sad to see.

    What his record is, who he fights or what he does is nobody’s business but his own. You don’t want to see him fight? Don’t buy a ticket or go get another beer when he’s in the cage. Easy problem to solve.

    But if people are so concerned about Tim’s well being or his losing record, than I suggest you give that same advice to any number of fighters across the world who do this for the love of the game.

    I appreciate that Jake. All these guys disliking my posts when I give an honest explanation of whats been up with me, is the reason I visit this forum once, and then you guys dont see me for 6 months.

  27. mmafan says:

    I think some people on here are actually concerned for Tim and not just hating. When you see a guy get knocked out that many times you know there will be long term effects. One of those effects can be depression, some athletes are just such gamers they have to be protected from themselves, that’s why they have “the quite room” in the NHL because if you left it up to the players they would just play through it. Tim compete level might just be so high he won’t know when to walk away. It should be up to Tim and his doctors if he fights again, I don’t know if 4th grade students should be deciding. Last thing mma needs is all there ex fighters being pushed around in a wheel chair at 50.

    You guys should all mind your own business, Tim is like only 33 years old ,hes got another good 10 years left in him if he choses to pursue the fight game, also with a good chance of Tanner vacating his local title when he gets the call to the big show, Tim stands a good chance of challenging for the unified heavyweight title!

    This thread is entirely too much hand holding and comparing dicks for me. Tim is a grown ass man doing what he wants. If he turns it around and starts knocking people out good for him. If he injures himself? Well he knew the risks. I’m not going to turn down a sparring partner with his experience in the ring.

    With risk comes reward, and I am sure Tim has being compensated and rewarded well for doing what he does best, so keep doing what your doing and ignore the naysayers and doubting Thomases.
