Tim “The Thrashing Machine” Hague will try to make it two mixed martial art (MMA) victories in a row this Friday evening during Aggression MMA Uprising, held at the Edmonton Expo Centre.
Hague will take on Travis “Diesel” Wiuff, who will bring wealth of experience to the bout. The Minnesota native boasts an impressive MMA record of 62-13, with 20 knockouts, 22 submissions and 20 by decision.
In comparison, Hague brings a current 11-4 MMA record, which includes several UFC fights in the past two years.
Of his 11 wins, six of them were by knockout.
Hague’s most recent win was over a fellow Minnesota native, Zak Jensen, at Aggression MMA Victory on July 9.
Despite being peppered early, Hague was able to land a devastating knee to Jensen’s midsection, resulting in the knockout win.
Hague will once again be fighting in front of his hometown Edmonton area fans as the main event of the evening.
The 27-year-old Hague will face 32-year-old Wiuff in what may be Hague’s last MMA fight of the year.
The last time the Advocate spoke to Hague, the Boyle native wasn’t sure where he would be at after his October fight.
“I might go back to work for the winter, but I’m going to take it one fight at a time,” explained Hague during an interview in late July.
At six-foot-four and 261 pounds, Hague will have the advantage over Wiuff, who stands at six foot three and weighs in at 253 pounds.
Wiuff comes into Friday night’s contest with a seven-fight winning streak that dates back to May 30, 2009.
His most recent win came on May 21 of this year against U.S. native Josh Barnes in a form of a knockout.
The last time Wiuff lost in an MMA match was back on May 2, 2009, against Stanislav Nedkov.
As for Hague, before defeating Jensen back in July, Hague struggled to stay afloat in the UFC.
He was able to win his first-ever UFC match against Pat Barry at UFC 98 in May of 2009, but failed to win his next three UFC fights from August 2009 to May 2010.
Joey Beltran, Chris Tuchscherer and Todd Duffee defeated him in the three matches respectively.
The fight begins at 7 p.m. at the Edmonton Expo Centre. For more information the event visit aggressionmma.com
