    Former UFC fighter Tim Hague on life support after getting KO'd in a boxing match

    Tim Hague is apparently on life support and family is making arrangements for organ donations as he lays in a coma from brain trauma suffered in a boxing match Friday night

    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

    Are there any rules in boxing in regards to stopping a fight from knockdowns? He got 8-counted 3 times in the first (and there probably should have been a 4th, when he got rocked and seemed to shoot for a TD) and then a 4th one in the 2nd round before the KO. And the KO itself was brutal, Hague's head hit the canvas so damned hard.

    Also had a look at his boxing & MMA records. This was his 10th KO loss, which is a TON for anyone, but especially for someone who's getting those KO's at heavyweight.

    Depends who is the sanctioning body for the bout, some have a 3 knock downs and your out rule, some don't.

    Either way, it looks like a terrible situation here.......but that's boxing for you, and MMA too kinda. These sports need proper regulation, not reliance on cash happy athletic commissions.

    Probably not the place for this, but anyone watch Ward/Kovalev last night.......some seriously bad refereeing in that fight, and the one prior to it too.

    It's time the commissions had no role in combat sports........that said last week there was a title fight over here Burnett/Haskins, one kid won every round of the fight, with a few 10-8's, and one judge scored it for the other fighter(later admitting he got the fighters mixed up), that judge was appointed by the IBF.

    When a fight like Floyd-Conor can be made any fight can be "sanctioned", you have one of the best of all time at 49-0 against a guy with not a boxing match under his belt at 0-0, to me if Conor got seriously hurt its on the sanctioning bodies who basically do nothing but get greased money in their pockets for stuff like this.

    I seen the highlights of the Ward-Kovalev fight, Ward had 2 borderline low blows and 1 clear lowblow which the ref managed not to see.

    Exactly my point, they are only there to make money.......they have no real concern for ensuring the safety or sanctity of the sport.

    Agreed, and even if he felt Kovalev was in trouble, surely he's given a standing 8 count!
