After hitting rock-bottom, Tim Hague now aimed at crushing jaws on way back to top

More than eight years and 28 fights into his pro MMA career, Tim Hague said he’s finally prepared to meet his potential.
Hague found success early in his career under the King of the Cage banner. He won the organization’s heavyweight title as part of 10 wins in his first 11 pro fights.
He then received the call to make his UFC debut at UFC 98 in May 2009 and would submit Pat Barry in the first round. Unfortunately after that point, his career went into a backslide that only now – nearly six years later – can he say he’s recovered.
Hague spent much of recent years trying to rediscover his groove. He suffered three-straight losses under the UFC banner and was cut from the organization in May 2010. After that, he failed to register more than two consecutive wins and went 6-8 in a 14-fight stretch.
That’s until roughly the mid-way point of 2014. Hague realized he wasn’t happy with his win-one, lose-one pattern. To buck that trend, he rededicated himself to the sport and the lifestyle that goes along with it. Now he’s won three straight.
Hague (19-9) has won his past three fights by knockout and hopes he can make it four straight when he challenges Tanner Boser (6-0) for the Unified MMA heavyweight title at Unified MMA 22. The event takes place on Friday at Mirage Banquet Hall in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, and is available via online pay-per-view at GFL.tv.
