UFC fighter Nick Ring knows a good fight.

But what he saw Wednesday night at a bus stop on Macleod Trail was far from it, and he stepped in to even the odds.

Ring — a 33-year-old mixed martial arts fighter who is gearing up for UFC 149 in Calgary next month — was leaving the Starbucks at Macleod Trail and 94th Avenue when he saw a group of about 10 people across the street beating up a couple to steal a young woman’s backpack.

“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,” said Ring on Thursday morning.

“It was a really horrible thing to see.”

He wasn’t going to put up with it.

Ring got out of his car, checked on the victims and along with another bystander who saw the fight in progress started to chase what he called the “wannabe gangsters” who ran when they saw them.

As he chased the suspects, who appeared to be about 17 or 18 years old, Ring called police on his cellphone.

The pair was able to catch one suspect and Ring says police caught another five or six suspects.

“I did not like what I saw and I wasn’t going to stand around and watch that happen. It was a crime and 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.”

Ring said both victims were bleeding after the attack. The boyfriend had a large cut on his face.

EMS spokesman Adam Loria said one person was taken to a clinic after suffering a minor trauma. The patient was in stable, non-life threatening condition.

According to his UFC bio, the 185-pound Nick (The Promise) Ring has a black belt in muay Thai, a brown belt in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and has won golden glove kick-boxing titles. He competed in season 11 of Ultimate Fighter.

Ring said the suspects did not know who he was or his fighting background.

“It puts me in the position that I have the ability to help others when they need it. I was glad to be able to put my skills to use to help these people out,” said Ring.

“I think that would be a scary position to be in if you’re witnessing that and feeling powerless. With all my training, I think I’m in a unique position to be able to handle myself against these kind of cowards.”
