    I feel very bad for him and his family.

    That's why you shouldn't fuck around with boxers though.

    I know this is a risk of the sport. But damn, it sucks.

    Dude taught school.

    Thoughts with his family.

    Fuck. That's awful. As a fan, it's easy to get lost in the fight game, but stuff like this serves as a reminder that combat sports are very dangerous and potentially life-threatening.

    According to wikipedia Hague has been KO'd 5 times and TKO'd 3. I'm sorry but the man had no business being in an octagon or boxing ring after having his brain scrambled so many times.

    Which incompetent athletic commission gave the green light for this guy to fight?

    Damn that's so shitty. He had a boxing match with a former CFL football player, apparently got TKO'd in round 2.
