Tim Hague’s return to the UFC has proved to be short lived.
The Canadian fighter was 1-3 on his first trip through the promotion. He went out and won back-to-back bouts against TUF 10’s Zak Jensen and fellow UFC veteran Travis Wiuff, earning a callback at the recent UFC Fight For The Troops 2.
It wasn’t a successful return, however. Matt Mitrione TKO’d Hague in 2:59 of the opening round.
And just like that, Hague – and a newfound concussion – was once again sent packing from the Octagon.
“After getting released from the UFC again today, I’m gonna take a little break away from MMA, let the brain heal from my concussion, and get the passion/fire back,” Hague posted on his Facebook page on Thursday. “Even toying with the idea of trying a cut to 205. I will be back though, I’m only 27, and I will make it back to the UFC.”
Making the cut down to light heavyweight might be a stretch for the six-foot-four-inch tall former King of the Cage champion, but he’s clearly optimistic about his chances for a second callback.
“Not bad for a carefree farm boy who only got into it five years ago,” Hague wrote. “Like I said. I’ll be back.”
