EDMONTON, Alberta — Tim Hague, the former UFC fighter known as "The Thrashing Machine," died Sunday, two days after he was critically injured when he was knocked out in a boxing match against former Edmonton Eskimos defensive end Adam Braidwood.

Hague's sister, Jackie Neil, announced the death in a family statement.

"It is with incredible sadness, sorrow and heartbreak to report that Tim has passed away today," the statement said. "He was surrounded by family, listening to his favorite songs. We will miss him with so greatly."

The match Friday night at the Shaw Conference Centre was promoted by KO Boxing.

The 33-year-old Hague, who grew up on a farm in Boyle, Alberta, was a heavyweight trained in jiu-jitsu. He was 21-13 as an MMA fighter before switching to boxing last summer.

How much will it cost to watch Mayweather vs. McGregor? .
The late-summer showdown between undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. and UFC fighter Conor McGregor has generated nothing but hype since it was announced Wednesday evening. And while the fight itself may not ultimately live up to its billing, you can expect ticket and Showtime pay-per-view prices to approach record highs. Specific numbers for both are yet to be determined, but a good guide to the Aug. 26 fight would be Mayweather’s bout against Manny Pacquiao in 2015. That cost viewers $99.95 on Showtime and HBO. In-person tickets for that fight cost between $1,500 and $7,500 before resale, and sold out in a flash.
