UFC champ Chris Weidman saves elderly neighbor who was bleeding to death in her driveway

Faster than a speeding Brazilian! More powerful than a TRT needle! Able to leap pound-for-pound rankings in a single bound!

Chris Weidman got to play real-life superhero earlier today (Thurs., Oct. 16, 2014) after rushing to save his elderly neighbor, who was bleeding to death in her driveway and unable to get her confounded phone to dial out.

From Instagram:

Shout out to this man @chrisweidmanufc who just saved our 92 year old neighbor's life. She fell onto a glass table and had pieces stuck in her head. She was in her driveway bleeding out in the rain trying to call her daughter on the phone. Chris ran over and brought her inside, cleaned her up and called 911. #myhero

Even with a busted hand!

Weidman will try to continue his heroics in early 2015 when he takes on Vitor Belfort for the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight title, in what amounts to his fourth straight battle against a Brazilian.

Now will you cheer for him?
