UFC middleweight Nick Ring saves Calgary couple from wannabe gangsters


FanPost edited and promoted by

I've got bad news for all the wannabe thugs trolling the streets of Calgary: Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Middleweight Nick Ring is gonna cut you down.

Starbucks style.

Don't be fooled by the lisp or the "oh no you di'int" catchphrase, because the former Ultimate Fighter has made a "Promise" to save the day whenever it's humanly possible, sort of like he did earlier this week when a gang of street toughs tried to rob an over-matched couple as the unmasked marauder was leaving a local coffee shop.

Ring breaks it all down for the Calgary Herald after the jump.

"This one girl had another girl by her hair and was kneeing her in the face while her boyfriend was trying to protect the poor girl. It was right out of a movie, they were holding him back and beating him up as well. It was a really horrible thing to see. I did not like what I saw and I wasn't going to stand around and watch that happen. It was completely wrong. I'm not going to let anything like that happen if I've got anything to say about it. Not a chance."

Police were able to apprehend half of the suspects.

Ring (12-1) will rematch Court McGee (after a razor thin decision from the TUF days) next month (July 21, 2012) at the UFC 149: "Aldo vs. Koch" pay-per-view (PPV) event from the ScotiaBank Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
