Canadian Tim Hague Is Not Impressed By Upcoming UFC 109 Opponent Chris Tuchsherer

Alberta's, and arguably Canada's, best heavyweight Tim "The Thrashing Machine" Hague (10-2, 1-1 UFC [pictured left]) is hoping to rebound at this weekend's UFC 109: Relentless. In his last fight, at UFC 102: Couture vs. Nogueira, Tim came out on the business end of Todd Duffee (6-0, 1-0 UFC)'s record-breaking seven-second knock out.

Tim seems to like his chances against his next opponent, Chris Tuchsherer (17-2, 0-1 UFC), though. Tuchsherer is a training partner of UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar (4-1).

It all started with this video that Tuchsherer posted recently on We get a look inside his training camp and are introduced to the intricacies of his "Caveman Training":

Hague then fired off this response on the popular MMA Underground Forum forum, which is popular with both fighters and hardcore MMA fans:

/ Licks Chops / I am not impressed by your performance...
I have respect for Chris. He is a great guy, and I hope to be able to train with Chris/Brock's camp some day, but that looked about as intense as my warm up.

B.C. MMA Fan is withholding its official predictions until later in the week, but I have to agree with Tim that this video is not particularly impressive. The high tempo music doesn't help either, it only makes Tuchsherer look even slower.
