First “The Hammer”, now “The Thrashing Machine” released from the UFC

On the heels of recently revealing that Mark “The Hammer” Coleman had been released from the UFC, it now looks like heavyweight Tim Hague is the second fighter to be given his walking papers from the promotion following UFC 109.

Hague recently released the following message on his Facebook account:

Tim “The Thrashing Machine” Hague was released from the UFC… Time to train harder, beat up some more people and work back to the big show!

The news comes following a controversial majority decision defeat at the hands of Chris Tuchscherer this past weekend and a prior defeat to Todd Dufee in his last outing, which was the fastest recorded knockout in UFC history.

Hague currently sports a career record of 10-3 with his sole victory in the UFC being a first round guillotine choke submission over Pat Barry at UFC 98.

    Not that surprising after two straight losses even though the last one was only a majority decision. At least it seems like he has a good attitude about taking it as a motivating factor.

    This is crap, Danzig loses 3 in a row and gets a fight he should win easily but barley gets out of round 1. Swick looks like crap against Hardy almost getting koed three times, then gets put to sleep by Thiago and both of thoes guys are ok but a up and coming HW who has 1 ko to a very good HW and 1 split decision loss is gone. Crazy.

    I guess the only way to stay on in the UFC is to win TUF! Doesn’t matter I’m sure we’ll all see him in the near future crackin skulls in the octagon.

    I don’t think Hague should have been cut yet, but to call Todd Duffee a very good HW isn’t exactly true. You don’t really get to see how good someone is in 8 seconds. I think Duffee is a good prospect but the UFC cutting Hague makes that win lose some credibility.

    You know the deal fan. People still recognize Danzig from TUF ad are still moderately interested in watching him. If people really want to watch you fight and are willing to pay for it then it’s hard to get cut by the UFC. Business-wise this move makes sense. Danzig might have been 0-3, but he still puts more people in seats than Hague does. That’s why fighters like Baroni miraculously have a spot in the UFC over fighters like Josh Neer or Tamdan Mcrory.

    Good call about Duffee jding, it’s something I’ve been thinking a lot now. Sure he’s ripped as hell and clearly athletically gifted, but all we really know for sure is he has a rock solid jab. After he dropped Hague in 6 seconds people were saying he’s the next big thing which I’m still hesitant on. It’s obvious he has ko power, but let’s not forget people thought Brandon Vera would be the next big thing at some point too.

    Anybody remember Houston Alexander’s first fight? Everybody thought he would be championship material. Remind you of Todd Duffee at all? Not to say Duffee will end up like Houston, but 1 fight says nothing about a fighters true talent.
