According to a recent report by Yahoo! Japan, UFC fighter KID Yamamoto put his own life on the line to save a man who fell on a subway track in Tokyo last week. Yamamoto last competed at UFC 144, falling to Vaughn Lee.
In the report, Yamamoto saw an older man unconscious and bleeding from his head on the Gotanda Station track. The man was too heavy for the bantamweight to life, so other bystanders eventually jumped down to help Yamamoto. The group got the injured man off the tracks before the next train came.
The loss by Yamamoto was his third consecutive defeat. He is 18-6 with one no-contest in his career.
