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.

& Dancing Doll's raging insatiable libido


The only thing that can bring Nick Ring true justice.
