    She got KO'd like 7 times in 1 fight, and the ref + Winklejohn still forced her to fight.


    If it was MMA, after the first KO they wouldve stopped it after 2 hammerfists

    A lot of fighters go through the same sort of thing, especially in smaller orgs. It's scary when you think about the amount of times a complete scrub has been matched up with a prospect for a completly 1 sided fight, just to give the prospect an easy win.

    Do you remember the kickboxer who died a couple of years ago because his coach/ref/doctor let him fight, even though the coach had to hold him up between rounds. Yeah, that's how much some of these people care about their fighters.

    Every professional fighter could suffer the same fate as Hague. How can you be a fan of combat sports and not realize this from jump?

    It was her hometown and she was being given the homewtown benefit of the doubt by the ref to the point it almost got her killed.

    It's brutal. Ref damn near got her killed, it seems. No one should endure a beating like that.

    Would not be at all surprised if she has slurred speech from all her years in boxing.

    I think that as well. She also kind of has a slow delivery. In fairness, I have no idea how she spoke or sounded 10 years ago, so that could just be her speaking style.
