Tim Hague is a natural raconteur, but he never thought about putting his stories to paper until recently.
“I’ve had some good times and some crazy adventures,” the 29-year-old Alberta product says. “So I just felt it would be a good read.”
Initially, Hague planned on penning the story of his aforementioned good times and crazy adventures. But after he wrote about 20,000 words — the equivalent of about 70 pages, by his count — the former UFC heavyweight decided to change the scope of his project.
“Anybody can really write a story about partying all the time and, you know, chasing after women or whatever,” Hague says. “So I just decided to write it as a journal, again, but each chapter would be the stories and events leading up to and involving each of my fights.
“I thought that would be much more interesting.”
