Mixed martial arts
Hague made his MMA debut against Eric MacDonald at King Of The Cage Canada: Detonator in 2006. Hague came out victorious winning via submission. Hague went on to win his next 3 fights and subsequently won the vacant KOTC Canada heavyweight title over Adriano Bernardo in only his fifth fight. His only loss came to Miodrag Petkovic in a split decision. Before signing with Ultimate Fighting Championship, Tim got a rematch against Petkovic and won by unanimous decision.
Ultimate Fighting Championship
Hague fought Todd Duffee on the UFC 102 preliminary card on August 29, 2009. Heavyweight Todd Duffee scored the fastest official KO in UFC history over Tim Hague at 0:07 into the fight. In his fight against Chris Tuchscherer on February 6, 2010 at UFC 109, Hague lost a controversial majority decision after 3 rounds (29-28, 29-28 and 28-28). Joe Rogan said that it may have been the worst decision he had ever seen in his entire life. Following his loss to Tuchscherer, Hague was released from the promotion.
The Fight Club
Shortly after being released from his UFC contract, Hague signed a multi-fight deal with Edmonton, Alberta based promotion The Fight Club. His first fight was scheduled to be on March 19 at TFC 10, against Tyler East. East, however, was forced to withdraw and Ed Carpenter was named as his replacement. Carpenter was then sent to the hospital with an undisclosed medical issue an hour prior to the event.  
On April 21, 2010, it was reported that Chad Corvin had pulled out of his UFC 113 bout against Joey Beltran due to his medical paperwork not being approved by the Quebec Athletic Commission, and Hague had been selected to step in. Hague faced Beltran on the preliminary card of the May 8 event and lost via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-26, 29-28). Hague was then released by the UFC for a second time following the loss.
After second release from the UFC
After being released from the UFC for the second time, Hague returned to competition in Canadian promotions. On July 9, 2010, Hague fought TUF 10's Zak Jensen, and won via KO (knee) at just 2:11 of the first round. Hague then faced fellow UFC vet, Travis Wiuff, at Aggression MMA's October 1 event in Edmonton, Alberta. He won the fight against Wiuff via KO in the first round.
Third Run in the UFC
Hague was signed for a third time by the UFC after his wins over Jensen and Wiuff. Hague faced Matt Mitrione on January 22, 2011 at UFC Fight Night 23. He lost the fight via TKO due to punches in the first round. He was then released from the UFC for the third time.
Post UFC & Retirement
Hague made a valiant 3 Full Round effort against Mike Hackert facing a loss in Fort MacMurray, Alberta. Following this loss he went back to the drawing board, took a vacation to Mexico with friend and fellow fighter Spencer Hendricks, and came back with a mindset to get himself UFC bound. Hague then rematched Hackert at the Mayfield Trade Center for the #1 Canadian Heavyweight Ranking. Facing a first round TKO, Hague announced his retirement from MMA following the bout.
