UFC middleweight Nick Ring doesn't consider himself any type of vigilante, but he refuses to sit idly by and watch innocent people fall prey to thuggery.

And so it was on Wednesday night, when "The Promise" happened upon a pair of victims being beaten by an assailing group of 10 youngsters who Ring asserts "probably thought they were way tougher than they really are."

While Ring is busy preparing for a UFC 149 rematch with Court McGee, for him the choice to get involved was a no-brainer.

"We just looked at each other, and we said to each other, 'Let's go get them,'" Ring said. "We ran after them. We tackled one of them, and we called the police. The police came, and I got into another little foot chase with them as I was on the phone with the police."

Nick Ring, you're a fucking badass in my book bro

Love hearing stories like this, personally. Of course it would be better if people didn't get mugged to begin with, but it's nice to hear all of these stories about fighters stopping muggings, robberies, etc.

-edit-

And what other sport has athletes who are in the press for being heroes with such frequency? It seems like there's a story about an MMA fighter stopping a crime like once a month minimum.

Good for him. He ran them down *after* they split the scene and *after* he checked on the victims.

The only thing that can bring Nick Ring true justice.

"One of the guys said, '[Expletive] you,' to me. Then he said, 'Yeah, man. Me and you, one on one.' He said that to my face. I just told him, 'Anytime, you little bitch.'"



I imagine this whole conversation going down with Nick wagging his finger at the gang banger and doing a little side to side head bob.

If Nick Ring really is gay I wish he would just come out and say it.

He's a great fighter, a tough guy, and obviously (especially after this story) has a lot of great qualities.

He could be the one to break the gay barrier in the UFC. I think he just might be surprised how many fans would be accepting of him. There would be some haters sure....but I also think he'd earn a lot of new fans.

How do you know that?

I'm not disagreeing. I just thought it was an open question.

I saw a quote of his where he addressed the issue but he neither confirmed nor denied it.

He just talked about how on TUF he would act stereo-typically gay just for the people in the house who thought he was.

As a straight man, I would want to crush those rumors if they started. I didn't think he had.


Edit: I did an internet search and couldn't find anything definitive either way.

I did find this article:

Nick Ring: Gay? Or Just playing gay on TV?

Some of his gems....

When asked about why he got a late night massage from another fighter: "Because I'm a big queer."

When asked directly if he was gay: "No, but my boyfriend is."
