Former UFC heavyweight Tim Hague was pronounced dead on Sunday following a knockout loss in a boxing bout on Friday in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

On Saturday, it was reported that the Alberta native was on life support and brain dead.

On Sunday, Hague’s sister, Jackie Neil, confirmed her brother’s death via Facebook.

“It is with incredible sadness, sorrow and heartbreak to report that Tim has passed away today,” she wrote. “He was surrounded by family, listening to his favourite songs. We will miss him so greatly.”

Hague was 34.

Hague’s mixed martial arts career lasted a decade. His overall record stands at 21-13. He fought five times under the UFC banner from 2009 to 2011. He last fought in MMA in July 2016, losing to Michal Andryszak by knockout.
