UFC fighter KID Yamamoto risked his life to save a man who fell on a subway track in Tokyo last Thursday, according to a Yahoo! Japan report.

The bantamweight fighter noticed that an older man was unconscious and bleeding from his head on the Gotanda Station track. While he was the first to jump onto the track to help him, the man was too heavy to lift on his own, so other bystanders assisted Yamamoto in getting him off the track. Yamamoto and others were successful in rescuing the man before the next train arrived at the station.

According to the report, the injured man is currently in stable condition at a local hospital.

Yamamoto (18-6-1) recently lost his third fight in a row at UFC 144 to Vaughan Lee via first-round submission.
